    Generally a good rule of thumb to spot days that need a boost (this goes for any festival in London, really) is the amount they're pushing it with adverts on the tube and online.

    Field Day, for instance, I've barely seen any ads for so I wouldn't be surprised if that one's doing the best, and has had no additions as far as I can recall. Whereas the others have had some serious real estate over the past couple of months and have had some stuff tacked on to try and tempt people to buy.

    Thanks, good to know. Keen for the nick cave day but holding out for some better deals on tix. Although if my fomo gets too much I'll just pull the trigger

    They would never change the day of it because of licensing issues anyway, but when the strike was announced I wouldn't be surprised if there were some serious discussions about pulling the day altogether. It's going to have a huge impact on the amount of people taking a punt on tickets in the week/s leading up (which counts for a lot at city day fests like this), when ticketholders arrive and leave the site, bar staff and tech people getting on site, the amount people drink, etc etc.

    I don't think they will pull it, but the day is certainly going to take a real battering because of the strike on top of the fact it hasn't been a strong seller anyway.

    Just out of interest, how do you know it hasn't been a strong seller?

    Yep, the app usually works fine for us with detailed stage times etc, though I agree about the alerts.

    Already going to the National and Nick Cave days (on 2 for 1), but the Tame Impala day is starting to look attractive at least on a similar 2 for 1 basis. Tame Impala, Caribou, Working Men's Club (really great live), Dry Cleaning and Goat are all worth seeing, and Mattiel has had a good album or two out.

    Is the nick cave 2 4 1 deal still available??

  4. I have had about 5th hand info that all 5 spice girls will be at glasto next year. Would trust the first 2 links the in the chain but beyond that I have no idea - although they are in a position to know

    Wet Leg, and it wasn't their fault. Way too quiet for everyone except the people at the front.

    Agree with this, I thought the sound across a few sets was a bit off. Diana Ross and Little Simz I think struggled with the same issues. A shame because those were 3 of the sets I was most looking forward to

    FAO those who like Espresso Martinis: 

    I found these at Sainsburys today. I didn’t buy any but I will next time I’m in and do a taste test. They were about £3.20 so pricy! 


    These look perfect, had a quick google and they're available online from their website, free shipping if you order 12 (can mix and match flavours) and it comes to £39, so £3.25 a can. Not bad

    No way DAMN is better that Mr Morale. 

    I think as others have said, it terms of immediate grabs from hooks etc. Damn. is probably superior. But pretty much everything else is better in Morale. 

    Damn an 8, MM a 8.5/9

    though i agree wasnt it huge?! like in terms of general public? maybe i got it mxied up with something else

    Yeah I thought it was pretty big with the casuals as well, would help get a lot of people on side if he included it in the set.

    It’s absolutely incredible. I think this could be my favourite album of his. Genuinely.

    So mature. And the ability to hook you in and unsettle you is insane. 

    He is one of the greatest rappers of all time.

    I just want to say, because I know it gets some hate/teasing on here - I've loved reading your enthusiasm about this album and Kendrick today, great to hear people experiencing music like this.

    I definitely agree, it's a very very good record and better than damn. As others have said. 100% I'll be there in the pit Sunday evening

    Ah fair enough, I do remember seeing them now you mention it. He’d work pretty well on any night and he’s a step up from Editors as the other JP headliner. The full lineup is going to have so many clashes this year.

    Yeah, if it wasn't for me already having all three days headliners sorted, I'd probably be there - his last run out at glasto on the other was pretty good from memory

  12. 2 minutes ago, kingcrawler said:

    Jamie T would be another solid headline option, though one I’d probably miss due to clashes. Has he announced any gigs this year yet? I know there’s a new album coming but I was expecting him to play next year, probably as a JP headliner, rather than appearing this year. 

    He has a few to promote the new music, including one tonight if I'm not mistaken.

    But no full on tour announcement yet as far as I can see
