  1. Yes they would, but they are kind of outside the Sziget demographic I guess - so it would be an hard pass IMO
  2. LMAO you better read carefully tho. I said that having Duffy as sub-head (19.30), being a weak name as she is, would imply the kind of day that D1 2015 had (with Robbie Williams headliner and less than nothing for the rest of the day). Can't remember when and if I recall correctly, but I recall that Idles won't be at Sziget 2022 I bet two beers that he won't be any higher than a 17.45 slot on Main Stage, in case!
  3. An A38 head spot is more likely, or even the spot before that clashes with MS headliner - 19.30 main stage is way way more important as a spot and that would define either a one-trick-pony kind of day (think Robbie Williams, 2015) or an overall weak day (think Galantis 2017). NOBODY. gives. a. rat's. ass. about. George. Ezra. in. mainland. europe.
  4. Had to google the name, althought that reminded me of something. Wouldn't be a benchmark, if the singer's prime time was in the early '10. I guess thatnunless the coming back from the hiatus is somehow a breakthrough in the genre or the band/singer is not an iconic anthem-maker generation-marker one (My Chemical Romance or RATM are the firsts I think about), then I wouldn't give much of a chance.
  5. Indeed, the point is that I can postpone Kings of Leon or Arctic Monkeys (and both have more than a few bangers in their average setlist, but they are unbelievably flat live shows) until the rest of the headliners are somehow fresh or brings something of value worth to be attended. Megan Thee Stallion, might be the first woman rapper in Houston, but that hardly amounts to anything that matters to me - wanna book a rap artist? Cool! But bring someone with a good show or, if really that cannot be done, just waste money on some real exclusive name (the genre allows this kind of thinking) - like Eminem, for an instance.
  6. Ah yeah... Megan Thee Stallion, you mean Rap Nicki Minaj... Gotta say, would not be surprised with the booking - but it would surely be the last nail in the "less ispired set of headliners we ever got (aside 2017, of course)" coffin . On a side note, I just had an Error 500 recharging this page - I really hope the servers are stable, this month without the forum has been a pain for my breaks at work
  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
