  1. Hi all, This is probably a long shot but worth a go. We got seeticket coach tickets from greenwich very early (5am) so we decided to book out a 6-person room in a hostel close by to o2. Since then, we've had 3 people drop out and it's been on my to-do list to sort it out. Before I cancel the 3 beds I thought might as well offer it out here, plus it'd be nice to be with fellow glastonbury goers who'll understand when we make a bit of noise at 4am when preparing to leave(!) - it's £20 per bed (we don't pay until check-in so I'm not going to be asking for any money from you over the internet!). Feel free to DM or message here. Thanks!
  2. Eugh, I've just about been able to be convince myself this lineup is okay and then they go and throw two lock-in headliners on the same night ffs.

    Mac DeMarco?

    Tame impala and Mac Demarco would be a strange and disappointing clash - especially as they crashed his set last time
  5. The last Carly Rae Jepson album reached a high of *checks notes* 21 in the charts, but was in almost every critics end of year best album lists. Robyn's last album also reached number 21 in the charts and was in Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Time's end of year best album lists. These aren't top40 acts right now.
  6. Sorry, was talking to primavera bloke
  7. Thing is, maybe in 2013 it was different, but last time I checked, Primavera was the hipster haven and hipsters seem to adore Robyn and Carly Rae Jepson, so seems like a logical fit.
  8. Sure - just to make it clear, the 50:50 on average between musicians as a whole is a logical starting point for the chain of thinking. I'm not demanding an exact split of that for all musicians in the world.
  9. Anyway, cba to derail the thread any more, just saying that "I don't care what a performers gender is" is the equivalent of "I don't see a person's skin colour", I'll leave it there, feel free to disagree.
  10. Sorry, I should have made it more clear that 50:50 musicians. The fact that there's more males than females in music is part of the wider structural problems. Like I said, I don't think the oscars should hold all the blame when their nominations aren't diverse enough - acting tends to be filled with white, richer folk so it's no surprise that they make up a larger chunk of the nominations, but it doesn't mean it's not a problem.
  11. Most people tracking these things are actually generous and count it as long as there's a single female member so it's already skewed even easier for festivals to meet this target
  12. It says you've been to Barcelona once and none of the three you mentioned are playing Porto
  13. Man goes to festival once and decides he alone knows what it's about
  14. To people complaining about the gender ratio: By probability you'd expect there to naturally be a 50:50 split on average for performers gender. This is not the case - have a look at festivals and check, it's not even close. Therefore there must be something structural stopping this - unless you believe that males are innately better musicians than females. Festival line-ups are part of that structure, they aren't the entirety by any means and that means that I don't think organisers should take the full brunt of the blame (much like the oscars do for lack of diversity). Unless some part of that structure make a concious effort (whether well-intentioned or driven by something else), it's not going to change. Glastonbury are in an almost unique position of being stable enough to take a risk on getting the 50:50 balance and imo have a greater duty than anyone else to do so.
  15. As someone has said previously, in 99% of cases, exclusive means exclusive. There's wiggle room and the odd anomaly but they are the exception rather than the rule.
