    Looking at the last couple of sets on setlist.com they played 4 off the new album out of 20 songs. Given that they only had a few dates before the release I doubt they'd hold back, and then change the set completely, but you never know. My guess is they'll try a few out in the first few shows to see what works, then settle down, or add more if they're going well.

    I meant on this tour so far, from the new album. AM may not have been fast paced, but it still had big songs, and was very well received. It may be that they were just holding back new stuff till the album was released, but by the time they play Mad Cool we should know.

    They've been playing 4/5 tracks by the look of it, which isn't many in a long set. Suspect that's what they'll stick to. Compared to someone like PJ Harvey, who just spent a year+ touring her entire album with only a handful of other songs, they're positive crowd pleasers

    They are not wrong. I imagine they won't play a lot of it live at festivals. I read it was inspired musically by the wonderful Histoire de Melody Nelson - and I can see the influence, but it's a very poor copy. Maybe a grower, but sounds lightweight at first listen.

    Wasn't there something about not upping the capacity to 80k, even though they could, because they wanted to make sure things ran well at the new site? I thought 65k was mentioned, but it was a while back so maybe mistaken.

    It's one of the good things about Spanish festivals starting early evening as it gets dark, but is still reasonably warm, and not so much direct sun. 40 is far too much though - I'd probably hide indoors till midnight

    I had a look at the weather last year and the weekend of the festival was well below normal (mid 20s instead of early 30s) - I think someone said it was horrendously wet too. BUT the weekend after (the date the festival is going to be on this year), the weather was around 40 Celsius, so I wouldn't worry too much about that photo

    A lot of festivals have relatively narrow pathways between the larger open areas of the site, so they can deal with rare situations where open air stages are getting crowded. I've usually seen them in action when there's a lot of movement just before/after a big band, so one way systems can be introduced, but on a couple of occasions I've seen whole sections closed off. I can't imagine this will be an issue here, as there's so many big acts that the crowd is bound to be shared around

    For some reason your comment reminded me of this sketch

    You might be ok with Arctic Monkeys, but I wouldn't put any money on Tame Impala. Still, the clashfinder is very speculative at the moment, so there's just as much chance that Eels will be up against Pearl Jam. I'm not a big Eels fan, but if that's the case it might be six people watching them with you

    I wonder just how popular they'll be? 2.5 hours - the rest of the site might be nice and quiet for the rest of us

    Sorry - but my favourite artists still clash. Could you go back and do it again for me?

    I'd have thought Depeche Mode too for the retro bleeps crowd. I suspect UW and NIN may well be late night, and open to a clash

    According to Spotify, he's the fifth most popular artist in the world right now.

    Maybe they're running out - or maybe they were supposed to make it last 120 minutes, and they got giddy early on
