  1. Music starts at 16.45 and ends at 23.00 on the main stage, other stages goes from around 16.00 to 6.00 am, depending on the stage (edm and techno are everywhere after midnight I may add). Age range is 20-30 I'd say, but a 40something will fit imho!
  2. They basically shot themselves in the foot with that yesterday post about the new names that was a major PR nightmare. Specifically, you can't opt for names like "Chris", they scream Coldplay. Plus, the headliners aren't really anything exclusive or fresh; plus, the names are really answering to the demands of a small crowd (Capaldi and Bastille answer to same niche, same goes for AM and KoL). The critics are not about the names per sè, tho, it is more about the general sense of oldness that the major names bring to the table and, in pure honesty, I partly second them. There is no one that is really surfing the wave nowadays - even Capaldi is no new news. I like the lineup, but it really could be something drawn from the mind of a 2018-19's management.
  3. Damn zoomers looking for any chance of 5 minutes of fame.
  4. A38 23.45-01.00 slot Would instabuy for a LCD show at Sziget, but they are EU exclusive apparently
  5. Yep, they want to spam their presence in the festival circuit in order to A) milk the current success B) hopefully enhance their status on the international stage (not so easy, as an italian band). I guess they would make a decent second spot on the main stage. Would not care about them, but yet interesting name.
  6. In 2018 they promoted the festival with 8 headliners, counting the co-head structure of Kygo and Shawn Mendes like they were 2 headliners for the sameday (and, marketing wise, they actually pulled that one out). Same they did in 2019, promoting the last day as they had 2 headliners (21P and FF). I mean, the structure may not be the one of a co-headliner's day (being FF way more appealling and stronger than 21P), but the names are both headliner material in the european circuit, and for what marketing concerns that is more than enough. I can see something like this happening at Sziget 22, since it is something they run for the last years. This being said, I'd be damned if I'll see George Ezra anywhere higher than a 2nd spot - maybe MAYBE MAYBE co-headliner in a weak day. I get that this forum is really focused on England's taste and that the festival lineups' culture is usually different, but in mainland europe the guy is only famous for Budapest. It's the same story like it was for Jake Bugg at Sziget 14: nobody actually cared, but the english people.
  7. It would be the weakest set of headliners I've ever witnessed... I understand that Pop and Hip Hop heads might be big-BIG, but uh, the rock names would be underwhelming. Plus, and I speak as a non-UK attendant, neither BMTH or Liam Gallagher have any appetibility as headliner - not even in a co-head scenario. For what I can recall, they never headed any non-british major fest, also.
  8. Mh, I don't want to look too much into this statistic, though. Everytime a situation like this one occours to a festival, everybody goes Rambo with the wildest speculations (i.e. "what if they add a new headliner, there are 3-3-4 in the firse w/e, gotta be 2 more heads") and then we end up with some middle-tier names at best and a handful of nobodies - which is reasonable tbh. There will be no more headliner for sure, they would have pointed that out otherwise - also it is not PS modus operandi to tease an headliner, the whole ticket comes out together for a reason.
  9. The most random necroposting I have ever witnessed, not gonna lie
  10. I am sad. Also, really feeling drifting out of the festivals' circuit lately...
  11. IoW is English-centric and English-based. Really never met a non-UK attender. About Modest Mouse, holy smokes, I knew nothing... I guess that two years off the circuit really had some effects on me
  12. It depends. IMO the current sentiment is conservative and hence correct: I'd rather be at peace in february and hold my horses til september / 2022, rather than be hopeful until april and then die inside once again: it is more healthy. This being said, I believe that the current mood is the most responsible attitude some festivals can show: just lay low, do nothing but remember the audience you are still standing and that's it - no hype, no false hope and stuff.
  13. Those ain't the 80s, you won't move 40k people from all Europe with 3 weeks in advance, hell. This applies even more for non-camping festivals!
  14. 😢😢😢😢 Hate I cannot mentally flex my upvotes every once in a while (inb4: the kind of posts that would get you some downvotes easy peasy!)
  15. 70% of the world is hellalot people from very different cultural and social strata. I think there is no vaccine that has been spread that fast. I mean, polio was a way worse illness and it almost took 60 years to eradicate it - 7 years for the first country in the world to eradicate it (and it was Czechoslovakia with 15 millionish people only). Plus, covid - being a coronavirus - with its rate of mutation might never allow an accomplishment such as 70% of vaccinated pop ever: most likely it will mutate many many times until it becomes no more than a common influence. Just hope that by 2022-23, when at least in Europe it will be considered safer to have large meeting of people like festivals, there will still be some of the old organizations still withstanding, or surely new ones will come to take place of the old: you can destroy a festival, but you will never destroy the concept of festivals, that for sure.
  16. Doubt... Deftones headliner in 2021? The latest album is crazy, but still I found it hard to believe that the lineup is done - but yeah, maybe saying that Half the lineup is TBA is an overstatement
  17. It is not even "being newbie" at this point, with regards to the management or the external social media managers hired or whatever, they are just trolling heavily. Who the hell, after months of silence from the whole festival circuit, would tease the release of a underground-undercard-discovery channel with THREE DAYS advance with no hints with half the lineup TBA and not a single breath for months? Huge lmao
  18. Yep, just healed up from the 'rona: it was not much of a deal, being 26 and in relatively decent health, but I was really unable to do anything other than lying down on the sofa and moan for 3 straight days. The whole thing went soft on me, but other friends of mine got the other end of the stick and were not able to leave their perimeters for almost a month due to positivity or flu, tireness and such. Definetely would not suggest anybody to leave their country if they do not have the antibodies to avoid it, a festival is out of question in my opinion, no matter the population of it. I personally gave up my chances on Primavera this year, which was the only festival with a lineup so wow to force me to buy a ticket with a year in advantage... Let's hope for 2022 with a full regular festival season, rather than a one-harmed, dangerous and pricey one in 2021
  19. I do remember a closing sunset at Sziget '18 and me and a friend were walking down an almost dismantled main stage area when from outta nowhere L'Amour Toujours rumbled through space and time and it hit me like a train. Why that happened? Was that really necessary? Was I expecting that? No, no and no, but yet that was a moment of weird bliss I've experienced at a festival
  20. Okay, can you go being completely not a slave without ant terrible terrible mask elsewhere? God forbid those negative vibes harm you more than those uuuuuuh scary chemtrails in the sky
  21. Boring pic content from FB years 2009-10. Just kill your Fight Club and Mr. Robot, this is tiring. Seriously, kill it: wrong place to find somebody who actually cares for the bunch of bullshit you are throwing and this is hugely disrespectful for the people who had to live with this epidemic in eye of the fucking storm and even lose somebody close. Keep your damn mask on and don't bother. Being edgy, ignorant and cospiracy theorist is not the new black, get done already.
  22. As if he wasn't drunk AF and totally forgot about his very presence on Spanish soil the day after ahahah
  23. Strange enough, but R&L has a decent first wave for once in a while... Would take Disclosure for EDM name and QOTSA for rock name. About the rest, it is almost nailed that we will get back Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi, 2DCC (leaked), Mabel and Fever 333. I'd gladly add to the list 100 Gecs and Sofi Tukker among the smaller names. Surely enough I'd be disappointed with Liam Gallagher headlining, or with a Post Malone comeback
  24. Guesswork brought me here with this list: - Billie Eilish - Arcade Fire / Kings of Leon / Foo Fighters - The Weeknd / Lady Gaga / Adele / Beyonce. Honestly, at this point is a lottery for the few not-braindead enough to put The 1975 or Kasabian as headliners. Assuming that no insider sneaked the tickets. Oh well, why not tho
