eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

  1. BBC Suffolk introducing acts announced this morning, I wouldn’t be surprised if the third lake stage headliner is announced today. Also some old crowd pleasing duffers for early afternoon on the obelisk, probably
  2. Lianne La Havas & Corinne Bailey Rae On an unrelated note, do they still do cheap tickets for these shows, and how/when? iirc I’ve seen people talking about tickets for a fiver or so in the past
  3. I’m thinking it might just be the lake stage in terms of music, and a comedy headliner to get the people going. Rob Delaney or Hannibal Buress are on my wishlist but I’m guessing Rob Beckett. Would like the DJs announced also
  4. There are ways in which we perhaps unknowingly contribute to racist/sexist/homophobic power structures, though. See above, the EasyJet pay gap isn’t due to “sexism” (ie employers specifically paying men more than women) alone, it’s more due to a structure that has historically led to imbalances such as women being pigeonholed into essentially service industry jobs (cabin crew) while the highly skilled and highly paid jobs are filled by men. The “other variables” alluded to are sexist, they’re just a bit more difficult to pin down. These are the ways in which we’re sexist/racist/homophobic. It’s not enough that you and I don’t use slurs, we need to identify and challenge the unfair power structures where we can rather than contributing to the status quo
  5. I like a lot of acts recently announced, in particular Foxing - who haven’t played Latitude before. As soon as I can afford to, I’m getting tickets to either latitude or green man festival
  6. The music industry is sexist, and a 6:3 m/f headliner ratio (7:3 if you count underworld) suggests that sexual organs do in fact have influence over where acts place on a line up. I’m not who you originally replied to but to answer your second question, wanting to support women in a male dominated field is not my definition of sexist
  7. Lots of good stuff in there for me, most have cropped up at the fest before but I strongly recommend Foxing - some great alt-rock, ffo: Hail to the Thief/In Rainbows, or Br*nd New if the singer wasn't an abuser. This and/or Green Man and I'm set for a lovely summer
  8. They are at two festivals in Spain trnsmt weekend. They could do Spain/Spain/Scotland (or reverse), but based on dates alone, latitude seems more suitable for scheduling imo
  9. Ah nuts, thought latitude was the week before, ta though
  10. Seeing Kate Tempest pop up on a few bills, would love it if she’s at latitude
  11. No wonder he stayed onboard Apollo 11 then
  12. I know this is a music forum, but blink twice if Michael Collins/Buzz Aldrin is on the line up
