    British Summer Time 2018

    Looking at tickets for this - can anyone give advice on the early entry? Is it necessary to get a spot down at the front, or just another way for the promoter to get an extra tenner?

    Bon Iver 2017

    Tickets purchased for Blackpool! If anyone's trying they're still on ticketmaster, gigsandtours looks to be sold out though

    Rock Werchter 2017

    Just listened to Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, very impressive! Frank Turner had a good chance of being added to the Saturday as he's the main support for Blink 182's uk tour. Another possibility is Jimmy eat world, as they're in Germany before and after the festival. A few more indie acts would be welcomed (Foster the people, circa waves), but right now the only poor day is friday, and even then you have Radiohead playing!

    The XX

    Listened out of curiosity after hearing the lead single, always thought the xx were a it marmite, but this new record is great! Always fun to see a band try something new.

    Pleased with yesterday's announcement, Lorde Is a massive curveball! Anyone know where to start with James Blake? Gave the Oscar and the Wolf album a go, looking at the poster imagine he will be headlining the barn or closing after Radiohead.

    Bon Iver or Frank Ocean would be the jackpot for barn headliners, but would both be considered too big for that slot?

    Agreed - saw him at Glastonbury and he nailed it, imagine he would sub? Possibly for Foo Fighters?

    Any thoughts for who the last two sub headliners will be? Under Radiohead - Bon Iver or Frank Ocean, both would fit well and possibly too big to play in the barn. Under Foos - Pixies (touring, cheaper option as Foos will sell tickets on their own) or Ed Sheeran (rumoured for Glastonbury, big pop act to balance out all the rock acts so far).

    They are headlining - as ridiculous as it sounds sometimes they have two headliners a night. Thursday is the hardest day to sell out, expect a dance act after KOL/AF, hopefully Deadmau5!

    Rock Werchter 2017

    1. I would expect both to get 90 mins, maybe system 75 and linkin park 90, no major difference. 2. Anything from early June to mid/late July - usually they won't share big acts with the other big festivals in Belgium (Pukkelpop, Graspop, Rock Werchter Classic) Anyone think QOTSA may play before foo fighters? A new album must be on the cards!

    Foos will be at RW after the cancellation, with the last headliner announced on Friday building up to tickets going on sale. Thoughts on the dance acts? Major Lazer seem like a certainty!

    Unfortunately don't think it will be pearl jam this year. Two or three from foos, green day, kings of Leon and arcade fire. Foos can only do Sunday, could KoL and arcade fire co-headline the first night?

    Got any gigs coming up?

    The stage banter looked really forced, they should have been doing two nights though, the academy was definitely over capacity. Was great to see a full show, only other times I've seen them has been leeds 07 (too drunk to remember ) and leeds 09, where the crowd were dead and the band looked they didn't want to be there!

    Got any gigs coming up?

    Brand new was the best gig I've seen in a LONG time on Friday, absolutely fantastic, the setlist was great but starting with wish by nin made it an instant classic!
