  1. This! I work for a sizeable national promoters; to say that this announcement is a deeply concerning kick in the teeth would be an understatement. A lot of fear going round internally at the moment. Going to be hard to reschedule gigs in venues that have shut down etc.. Don't want to comment more as events are moving rapidly but if we stay on this trajectory then the results for the live sector could be gargantuan. Scary times we live in.
  2. Soulwax just announced for Paredes De Coura. It'd be pretty dreamy if they played Green Man.
  3. Her and her team! LDR's solo tour will almost certainly be a type of deal where if she passes 'x' amount of ticket sales, she makes more money. Festivals play flat fees so that's not applicable.
  4. https://www.timeout.com/london/news/just-announced-james-murphy-and-2manydjs-despacio-is-coming-to-the-roundhouse-next-year-120319 Surely will be at Primavera.
  5. It's easier to travel via more environmentally friendly routes in Europe as opposed to North America due to its vastness. Bands the size of MA would also normally tour their our own PA which is practically another truck on the road which they won't require at festivals. It's generally more eco-friendly to hit a few festivals in Europe as opposed to doing a full tour (subject to routing) Arena level bands with massive productions are huge carbon emitters. I've worked with Kiss and my god do they tour a hideous amount of stuff (multiple trucks, buses, pyrotechnics, private vehicles, aicraft etc) It's also going to be a hard catch-22 on artists, especially smaller acts, as touring really is currently the only viable way of generating sustainable income. Bands like Massive Attack can afford to take a few years off that would just cripple others. Ultimately they do still need/want to make money and I hope they and others continue to use their platforms to push for real change in a very wasteful industry. Long-story short, - expect gig/festival tickets to continue to rise in price. Enjoy your first Primavera should you chose to go! It's one of the most diverse and excellent festivals around.
  6. I understand the scepticism, but I'm my own source and it'd be pretty silly of me to divulge past that. As it stands, FNM should announce early next week.
  7. Faith No More will be this side of the Atlantic early/mid June.
  8. You might want to keep early April 2020 free.
  9. Seen him a lot in the last couple of years and the only time he's had any visuals were the Ally Pally shows. His set at Primavera last year had no production at all, just him on some decks. Lovebox last month wasn't much different except he used some house lights.
  10. What's the situation on-site with drinks, does anything you bring need to be confined to the campsite? If so, what're beer prices like?
