  1. Strokes are playing Lytham Festival as an exclusive ‘North of England’ show… reckon they’ll pop up at APE and that’ll be it.
  2. Very outside chance shout… but chances of Faith No More? Realistically expect them to play download as doing early summer Europe shows but would be a nice surprise
  3. Yeah literally no one cares about them over here, in the US it’s different.
  4. Only went Saturday sooo… Best act of the weekend: Sam Fender, what a superb set. Act that most exceeded expectations: Aitch, he’ll be headlining in 5 years time (or less). Best new act you discovered: Demob Happy seemed good whilst having lunch. Best musical moment (song, crowd, etc): Sam Fender joining Declan McKenna on stage for ‘Brazil’ - so unexpected and was a treat!
  5. Yeah I totally agree with that… having to run between Sea Girls and Declan McKenna and TDCC and Wombats made little to no sense imo.
  6. Yeah I guess you could have Vaccines as a special guest opener similar to NBT, that would go down well imo.

  8. Poor signal at Leeds meant the food vendors spent most of the time with their hands in the air. Bandwidth definitely needs to be improved for future cashless fests, as it was sometimes nigh on impossible…
  9. Do we want music festivals to just stand still? R&L are at their most musically diverse points at the moment and, tbf, most of my mates, or those of my 16 year-old brother, don’t care about genre. We’re happy moshing to Metallica or to Aitch… as long as the music is decent and appealing… everything will be fine. QOTSA and RATM will still get booked, but expect a lot more TikTok influence… and that can be rock based too! I fully expect Manėskin to be booked for 2022, and would go just for them, they’re immense. I was dressed exactly like this (football shirt, bucket hat) and was primarily there for the rock/indie acts, though I can’t lie Aitch and Stormzy were incredible.
  10. This makes me incredibly thankful I have a separate bar Lane through disabled access… It was me who thought girl in Red would get a small crowd, but I’m so glad she didn’t - a fantastic artist! Well done to her! Very excited for today… especially to see what the hell happens with Catfish… if all else fails, Hybrid Minds will be a good fallback option.
  11. What’s the ground like at Leeds? Wondering whether to go for walking boots or trainers.
  12. R&L’s to blame! App/social media notification came for today when in fact it’s tomorrow!
  13. This app is the worst thing ever. That’s even with the Sherlocks playing.
  14. Shame have just announced two London shows for tonight…. possible secret/replacement set?
  15. Solardo are decent on the Dance Stage if you want to avoid Posty
  16. Would second the Vistas shout - expect a Scottish Vaccines vibe from them.
  17. Lathums? Would probably be around the same calibre as inhaler.
  18. Could also see Lock-Up artists play main stage - e.g. Yonaka, Nova Twins or Ashnikko - and then do their second set; vaguely remember this happening in 2019
