    Oh, right. The poster confused me as always

    they're definitely not playing Sunday anyway, imagine being Grizzly Bear and grafting out sad beautiful songs for all these years and then subbing King Gizzard who need a bath after pumping out 20 albums a year

    sometimes booking just don't come off I guess, I don't think there's any doubt GM will have tried to make the acts as mixed as possible gender wise. King Gizzard were probably 4th or so down the list of acts they wanted to headline GM is still nice enough to have a good time whatever, worst case scenario I'll just lie face down in the Walled Garden for the weekend, maybe get up to go pedal on the electric bikes

    I meant when they played in 2014, but yeah they were something!

    I just want weird people who aren't touring everywhere all the time to play. Ala Lift To Experience, Television, Slint, Neutral Milk Hotel

    Maybe wait a bit longer, the eotr announcement is about double the amount of this GM one, so it's not surprising if it's better. Obviously both are great though.

    I think it's good! I stand by Fleet Foxes being great, especially Helplessness Blues, , and Grizzly Bear and John Grant could easily headline outright.

    first announcement is usually a small one, it's enough to have a few good people on it. Always looks a packed line up come August.
  11. @GETOFFAMYLAWN Did you see Call Me By Your Name in the end? It's coming to my local next weekend

    ang on I'll trawl the archives.. Here: So you're right, maybe in a couple years. I actually think Bjork is a good bet though, she's got EU dates either side of the weekend it looks like. I thought she was gonna play in 2015 but then ended up at Wilderness instead.

    I would be really happy with Caribou after missing them last time around. @GETOFFAMYLAWN I read they tried for David Byrne this year but it didn't play out, always a long list of 'we tried but failed'

    WBA just need to get rid of Pulis's boring reputation and start being relatively bat shit crazy again. Used to be a funny club with the likes of Tchoyi, Scharner, Odemwingie etc. And start hiring managerial nobodies again, it's a lot funner that way than the Par/Pul/Ala merry go round.
