  1. Not sure if it's been mentioned but Primal Scream before the Stones in 2013 was dreadful. So disappointed considering the rave reviews from their Other Stage headline set 2 years prior.

    2020 headliners

    I doubt it, I'm under 30 and wouldn't say that I know a lot of peers desperate to see Zep in the same way that they were desperate to see Radiohead or Fleetwood Mac.
  3. The new Elbow album bored me to tears this morning. I'll give it another go but not hopeful as their output hasn't been average since The Seldom Seen Kid, bar for one or two songs.

    Foals' new album is out next week. Can't wait for the "but there are not hit singles and nobody is buying this" Vs the "it's incredible, totally made for the pyramid" arguments.

    Their output since West Ryder has been dreadful. They've gone the same way as MUSE and Kings of Leon in many ways, solid 3 albums to start their careers then less quality. You kinda wish these guys would give it up and go away for 10 years.
  6. Keep assuming that it will finally be the year NG's High Flying Birds will play. How they've not turned up in 3 album cycles I have no idea. Next year surely!? The guy is already at the festival most years.

  8. Could they be back next year? If so where do they play, Other headliner maybe?

    Jake Bugg was also back down to John Peel headliner 3 years later. Strange happenings indeed. I guess they can't always call it right as to when artists will blow up.

    Coach Question

    I've booked a National Express. If there are a few of us, do you know how lenient they would be on a an extra trolley if we only have one bag each, their policy said it's two bags per person.

    Sam Fender

    Guessing he will be 3rd or 4th from top on the other next year, or 5th/6th on the Pyramid.
  12. Sketchy sound for The National, couldn't hear the female backing at all and Matt's vocals were too low. But i still enjoyed their set. Self Esteem were brilliant though, my find of the day!
  13. Keep the tent, for years with rain sometimes it's a welcome relief to go under canapy. It's also great during the day as you can get a full lights and effects show which isn't the case for outdoor stages.
  14. They were really great. Not sure they had a huge crowd but fantastic performance.

    Legend Kylie dance?

    Kylie was a fun set. She looked happy to be there and we were happy that she was. Shame about lack of Jason D. But she's such a seasoned pro and it really came through.

    Tame Impala

    Best one for me too. Those lasers during Elephant were a proper moment. I saw Kevin in Block 9 on Sunday as well, still hitting it hard 2 night later is great to see.
  17. Also - courteeners do attract some absolute cretins to their gigs. Tommy Robinson chants... Go and do one!
  18. Good gig but the setup was shocking. Hour long waits for the bar meant missing big parts of James set. And then the indignity of only having Carlsberg. Walk back to town took ages, but definitely a better idea than the wait for the tram.

    Sigrid is against Liam. She's bloody fantastic and more than justifying that slot.

  21. Can they just put Export in the cans instead as that's actually a middling lager? If they sold that in bulk i wouldn't be against taking a couple of crates to the G.
  22. He's the "Dark Fruits" Ed Sheeran.
  23. Tories slowly but surely will fade into irrelevance in the next 10 years. Fair to say that "broad tent" is getting more and more narrow. He's my MP, I didn't vote for him as I didn't want a Tory gov, but he's one of the few Tories who actually held his nose on Brexit so I'll be sad to see him go.

    2019 Headliners

    I guess I shouldn't be a hypocrite as I saw the Pumpkins when they played and loved it, but I'd never seen them before, the Killers have been around the UK every year more or less, with no difficulty seeing them as a fan. If Dave is back I'd be keen but I just can't get on board with this otherwise.

    2019 Headliners

    Do we think Dave Keuning will be back performing with the Killers in the summer? It all feels a little tribute act if it's just Brandon and Ronnie. An exodus of founding members is never a good omen, so why should it work for the Killers?
