  1. Gutted The Blue Stones have pulled out, but Swim Deep are a decent replacement. I hope it doesn’t become a recurring theme of bands pulling out
  2. https://clashfinder.com/s/vic2022
  3. Just been updating the clashfinder, and I’ve gotta say the clash between Editors and Embrace seems bizarre?
  4. And sure enough Crystal Tides are on the Beats & Swing stage!
  5. I know there’s rumours the seaside stage is gone but I can’t see another spot that Hot Chip or Andy C fit in to, especially with Hot Chip being listed as a ‘Megamix’ as for Turin Brakes, given their placing on the poster, it seems to lineup with an Acoustic headline slot. Again though, this is purely guesswork so I could be completely wrong
  6. That was me messing around. Purely guess work so don’t read too much into it but hopefully it isn’t too far off the real thing
  7. Updated the Spotify Playlist with the new names. Surprise to hear the Gavin and Stacey theme song when listening to Stephen Fretwell!
  8. I second this. Going to see them tonight in Brighton, would definitely recommend to anyone into Royal Blood/The White Stripes
  9. I really hope not. Personally, Sam Fender and Nothing But Thieves are two of my absolute favourite artists at the moment, the thought of them clashing is terrifying. But I’m sure I’m not alone and that there’s a lot of crossover in the two fanbases. Surely from past years it could be a slightly more nostalgic act. Maybe Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott?
  10. Looking back at last years clashfinder I reckon it was Crystal Tides. They’re a Portsmouth band as well, and I saw them at this tiny indoor festival at the Wedgewood Rooms called Golden Touch. There’s something amazing about discovering new music you’ve never heard of before you hear it live. A band I’m really hoping make an appearance are The Royston Club. Again they were at Golden Touch and I’m hoping they become massive because they are class
  11. Made a little playlist of the lineup following the announcement! Absolutely made up with it so far, definitely check out some of lower bands like Alfie Templeman, Turin Brakes and Tamzene https://open.spotify.com/playlist/452T7UtDT1WmuCIVrVESSD?si=do3YlSLdTECyFT1NEQaSDQ
  12. How much could all this impact artists financially? The likes of Declan McKenna, Vistas, Sea Girls etc are all releasing albums and on the verge of exploding but surely cancelled album tour shows would have a huge impact on that. Is it possible some artists could just call it a day over a lack of money?
  13. Manics confirmed. Any guesses for the Sunday special guest? Personally I think it could be someone like Sister Sledge, especially with Chic playing later in the day
  14. Updated the clashfinder, despite having no intention of going this year. It's a shell of its former self, and it's so sad to see. https://clashfinder.com/s/iow2020/
  15. Do you know who’s what day? Ideally Sundara Karma or La Roux on the Friday
  16. Spotify playlist and clashfinder made for you lovely people https://clashfinder.com/s/iow2020
  17. In context, in 2016 Duran Duran headlined the now defunct Common People in Southampton, for £29.50 a ticket. 4 years later and now all of a sudden with no new material since then, they’re now headlining Isle of Wight, for £185 a ticket...
  18. Surely that’s Kaiser Chiefs confirmed
  19. Any of Stereophonics, Kings Of Leon, Foals, Catfish or The Strokes I’d be happy with Across the weekend: Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol, Sam Fender, Kooks Make or break year tbh, either they’ll go back to stadium level headliners or may be stuck with the lower arena headliners
  20. Who are people predicting then?
  21. In Austria on the Friday and Italy on the Sunday. Quite unlikely but not impossible!
  22. Pretty sure they’re a UK exclusive for APE so doubt they’d be booked
  23. First announcement for FIB. A month after IoW but could be some crossover Kooks, Example, Circa Waves, Foals, Lumineers, Kaiser Chiefs and The Hives all possible from that I think
