    All Points East Festival 2018

    Great festival, came over from Ireland for it and was impressed with the set up, organisation, the sound and the crowd, lineup was a belter as well and Friday had so many clashes. Missed one or two acts I'd like to see but compromises have to be made in groups! Thought Phoenix were the highlight for me, LCD were great too but I was too drunk and have a hazier memory than I should. Weather made it even better but unfortunately it made it too hot to enjoy Despacio, felt like a sauna in there on Saturday afternoon.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    Delighted with the stage times and I think it has worked out as well as it could have considering the amount of good acts playing. Only going for the first two days but my plan for the two days is: Friday: Gerd Janson > Chromeo > Glass Animals > Chet Faker > Phoenix > LCD Saturday: Despacio > Rhye > Soulwax > Hunee > Justice > The XX The fact that I am even getting to see all of those acts is amazing, thought the clashes would be a lot worse! I will be very disappointed if they are only selling cans of strongbow.. Surely somewhere will be selling pints of lager.. Anyone know are there any good bars around the area for a pint or two before going into the festival?

    I am chuffed that Despacio has been added, have seen it twice before and it is an amazing set up and a really fun place to be. I can't believe how good the lineup for this festival is.

    Electric Picnic 2018

    Yeah a weak headliner.. I don't know if I have ever met a fan of NERD. Not a terrible line up but it is the weakest to date in my opinion.

    Just got tickets for the Friday/Saturday during the week, happy to see Soulwax added in! Would be a bit crappy though if all of the headliners were to clash each night.. If the current clashfinder turned out to be correct with the main stage headliners going on a bit later than the rest and the stage times being staggered across the day it would work out much better. Fingers crossed!

    Will probably be way off but would think at least a few of these will appear: Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, St. Vincent, King Gizzard & Lizard Wizard, Friendly Fires, Hozier, Nick Murphy, Sigrid, Curtis Harding, Gaz Coombes, Kevin Morby. Very few names there I would actually be interested in seeing, let's hope they pull a surprise out of the bag.

    Thinking about flying over for this as an alternative to Primavera, worried there are going to be nightmare clashes (such as LCD vs Phoenix, The XX vs Justice, as in the clashfinder). Couple of questions, for gigs/festivals in Victoria Park which is the nearest tube station? Has it been confirmed how many stages there are going to be at this festival or how many more acts we can expect to be announced?

    Primavera 2018

    Better than I expected, headliners don't interest me too much but was pleasantly surprised to see HAIM and Slowdive on there. Lots of great electronic acts and DJs as well. Still undecided whether to go or not..

    Primavera 2018

    I agree, what is going on in this thread the past few days? People are almost panicking at the thoughts of the boozed up Arctic Monkeys fans turning up. I don't think a load of football hooligans from England are going to appear just because they are playing, especially if they are going to be playing at almost every second festival in Europe by the sounds of things. Last year was my first year and the crowd was lovely, thankfully the crowd did not seem judgmental at all, although this thread would give you the opposite impression!

    Primavera 2018

    I wonder is there any possibility of The Smiths getting back together and playing Primavera? That would certainly appeal to a lot of people. As much as the current names being tipped to play don't overly appeal to me, for some reason I have a feeling they are going to pull a surprise out of nowhere.. https://pitchfork.com/news/the-smiths-andy-rourke-and-mike-joyce-are-up-to-something/

    I think if QOTSA play they will headline the main stage, I'd say they are a strong possibility. Would love to see Depeche Mode. Kendrick Lamar possibly if he is playing festivals towards the end of the summer? Although there is not a chance we will get three headliners who are as popular as the three of those acts mentioned, one of that size maximum and then probably two smaller.

    Primavera 2018

    I think people tweeting to his personal account is a bit over the top but can certainly see the frustration alright. For me personally the chances of going have decreased the longer we have been waiting as flights and accommodation are getting more expensive as you said. I also think the teaser video was a failure in hindsight, it would need to be a hell of a lineup with lot's of surprises to make anyone react that way and you would think the more festivals that get announced prior to Primavera, the less surprises there will be on the lineup. Unless you live in Spain, booking your tickets and flights etc before the lineup is announced is a major risk considering the money involved. The line up will be good but is it justifiable spending €600(ish) on flights, tickets, accomm when you don't know who is playing?

    Primavera 2018

    Chromatics are appearing on a lot of these fake posters - have we any reason to expect they will be there? As far as I can see they do not have any tour dates for 2018. Also, does anyone know what the final ticket price will be once the lineup is announced? The above lineup would be great but too many acts I can't see appearing on it.

    Primavera 2018

    Can't help but feel that the list of acts 'ruled out' is a lot better than the list of acts 'strongly rumoured' but maybe that is just my preference. I am really hoping we get at least a date for the announcement this week, the past few weeks have been like foreplay and I don't know how much more I can take...

    Primavera 2018

    Nobody on that Governors Ball lineup that I will miss too much, would have liked to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Chrvches but won't cry about it if both don't make Primavera. There are a good few on the Coachella line up that I'd love to see play. Jamiroquai, HAIM, Soulwax, Jean Michel Jarre, Chic, Chromeo, Sigrid would all be welcome additions outside of the normal names thrown around. I was convinced we would get a surprise hence the delay in the announcement but not so sure now, stumped as to who it would be anyway. How long are we thinking before it's announced? I'm thinking by next Friday there will have been an announcement.
