    NOS Alive 2019

    Haha, I think we are just desperate... It's not that they teased something via the official NOS Alive channels. Other than that: would be great if they give us some (big) names. But to keep us folks in here happy, most PR festival people should attend an advanced course

    Won't be headliners, will they? Fits nicely in their schedule. Why would Elton John wait this long to announce? He has already announced dates for 2020 and 2021 (!), or does he have a Portugese gig still to sell?

    NOS Alive 2019

    Tbf, looking at TRNSMT 2017 and 2018, I don't see much of a difference except for the headliners. Still only the occasional act I would really want to see. I think they'll need to diversify or they'll end up booking the same acts every other year. I guess Stormzy is a step in that direction. For NOS and Mad Cool, no announcements and not even some rumours... I'm probably waiting for a huge let down regarding that final headliner...

    The Cure

    Ah good. Felt weird doing the Anniversary only in Australia. Thanks for the research, usually do the checking myself

    The Cure

    World exclusive... Guess that would pretty much rule out any other location. (The moon?)
  6. Kind of the point with a strike, isn't it? That you might face some sanctions/backlash while doing it, shows that you think some things are more important. Have seen kids from several countries that happily accept detention to be part of a climate protest. What kind of sanctions are we talking about in this case?

    2019 Headliners

    The Chemical Brothers filling in, proving they had to find a quick replacement for Macca...

    Doctor Music

    Already glad I decided to wait at least one edition before even really considering this... Maybe it turns out just fine, but can't take the uncertainty and vagueness. Feel sorry for the people committed to this, hope they sort this out.

    Lowlands 2019

    Officially, you can only bring your own drinks to the camping, not the festival site/'arena' itself. You are allowed to bring in 8 L of alcohol AND non-alcohol in total to the camping, no glass of course. But only once, only upon first entrance before you get your wristband, can't bring anything in later (not sure how strict they check this). Only small bags are allowed into the arena, and 0.5 L water without lid. Of course, you can be lucky getting things in. Don't find it worth the hassle myself.

    Avoiding Ryanair, those are the things I like to hear! Think I paid about 120 last year, booking in early November 2017. Still think flying is rather cheap.

    TRNSMT Lineup 2019

    Damon Albarn is touring with The Good The Bad and the Queen. Fri 12 July doing Doctor Music in Spain, week later in Italy. No Scottish date so far, I believe? Maybe something like 3rd down on the Sunday could be possible.

    You can pay for an extra bit of comfort of course. You have three types of glamping (Gllamcamp) options: basic, comfort and deluxe. Basic is just a pre-pitched tent with an air bed. But prices start at €72,50 per person. Could be a good option if you have a lot of travelling to do. The comfort and deluxe options gives you a bit more luxury, with its own camp site I think and own showers and toilets, own lounge spot. Own parking as well close to the camp site, included with the booking. Cheapest option available is €182 per person right now, though. Don't know if it's fully worth it. Maybe if you don't have a good tent and air beds at the moment, and like to be a bit more secluded...

    Rock Werchter 2019

    RIchard Swift, he was their bassist during the last time they toured. Died last summer, sadly. But was also part of The Arcs, another band of Dan Auerbach. But don't think that's why The Black Keys haven't been active. Dan Auerbach is more busy with some of his solo endeavours.

    2019 New Music

    I can only repeat the new Girlpool is worth a listen. So far not into all songs, but amongst the better new releases this year for me. Nothing comes close to SvE, though.

    TRNSMT Lineup 2019

    Libertines probably not active, it's Pete Doherty and the Puta Madres this summer. Won't be headlining, 3rd or 4th down maybe? Edit: And for Stone Roses: expect Ian Brown solo, could also be pretty high up.
