  1. Mad Cool all day long. Lineup is usually ridiculously stacked and the whole organisation/logistics are very smooth and easy. Very different experience to Glastonbury and you have to be at peace with that, but it’s a fantastic event to see a shit load of really top bands. Plus, a four day ticket is about half the price of Glastonbury, so once you’ve factored in travel and accommodation it really doesn’t feel like THAT much more money, and being able to head in to Madrid is obviously a massive bonus.

    Love the setlist but is that too hardcore fan oriented than Pyramid headliner? That start would be immense though. The one blessing about this whole fiasco and us never getting the glorious 50th anniversary Lover set, is that we’re all but guaranteed All Too Well gets played on the Pyramid, and probably the full version. I’d end the main set with that before the encore, then come out with a run of something like Style, Getaway Car, WANGBT to close.

    Yeah, that’s the reality of a Spice Girls headline slot. Legends slot with a few special guests and bells and whistles thrown in would be fine.
  4. I’m hoping she does Mad Cool and I’ll keep that in my back pocket in case we don’t get tickets. Big bonus there is that it’s a piece of piss to get to the front at Mad Cool.

    I think subbing the Pyramid fees like the perfect spot for Lizzo. She’s a slam dunk for that type of position. You want someone who can really win over the pit when most are there for the headliner, and she’s ideal for that.

    Yeah but it doesn’t say “chats”. Chats implies a two way dialogue, which that article very specifically doesn’t mention. It sounds like they’ve probably got their names on a wish list and that’s about it.

    If Taylor gets these rerecordings done by Glastonbury and the tour ends up being a greatest hits affair, holy shite she’s gonna put on all timer. Only Macca has a better back catalogue to pick from.
  8. I’ve totally lost faith that YYYs will ever set foot on the farm again to be honest. They’d put on a legendary set if they headlined John Peel but they’ve dodged the festival so many times since they last played. Tell ya what I am 100% willing in to existence for next year though - Bon Iver topping the Other. Years overdue that, and it’s happening next year. Heard it here first!
  9. Fresh and Black still going strong after about 7 years now. The blackout material is so good. Might need to upgrade to a bigger one though in the future (if we don’t do WV), the 3 man is just starting to feel too cramped and uncomfortable.
  10. Don’t join the first long drop queue you see. Go further in and the banks towards the back normally have a much smaller/sometimes even no queue. Particularly true of the ones by the Park stage!

    We were on the fence about next year and thinking about knocking it on the head for the foreseeable. We’re getting married the week before the festival and looking at honeymoons too, thinking about budgets etc we were leaning strongly towards taking a hiatus. Taylor and Fleetwood are the last two headliners on my list. That would be near enough impossible to skip.

    Unfortunately, being deemed cool by nerds on efestivals isn’t really part of the booking criteria.
  13. Yeah and it’s also what the majority of pop and hip hop acts do and it’s totally normal and accepted.

    If Taylor does headline next year, can we all agree she gets a 2 3/4 hr set?
