  1. As there is the day gap, assuming they are going to announce another show between the YM@6 shows and the festivals.
  2. Pup is a nice addition. No AFI anymore, I wonder if this means they are either not touring Europe next year anymore, and if they are, where are they going instead?
  3. I genuinely believe that ADTR haven’t had a bad record. Bad Vibrations certainly isn’t as good as the rest, but it’s by no means terrible. I can’t say that I’m all that sold on any of the new stuff yet, but im sure I’ll brazenly claim I hate it and then end up no lifing it for months after.
  4. Is it Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday next year?
  5. I'm going to California for two weeks and then flying to Chicago a week for this for my Honeymoon next year. Honestly can't wait!
  6. Understatement. It was the worst line up they’ve had in years, if not ever.
  7. I love Alkaline Trio and would love to get hyped about seeing them, but they are one of the most garbage live bands I've ever seen.
  8. It can have all the loyal clientele it wants, but they've just put the capacity up 5000, so it will need to survive off more than that. AFI is cool get, Jimmy is a bit underwhelming (however I know would go down well with the trees crows), and European exclusive or not, Thrice are not a big band at all. I don't think people are suggesting that people will expressly choose Slam Dunk over 2000 Trees, but with Slam Dunk expanding, the pool of bands for them to both book from crosses over much more, and i'd imagine a lot will go to Slam Dunk over Trees.
  9. The first year i went to 2000 Trees, it was £66 for the weekend. The lineup is obviously completely different now, which I know has to be reflected in the price, but the lineup is not good enough to warrant the price increase in my opinion. same filler bands year in year out, a couple of decent bands headlining the cave, a few bigger bands on the main stage and then relatively average size headliners. That Thrice show in London (which was co-headlining with Refused), was downgraded from Brixton, to Shepherds Bush and they are supposed to be closing out the festival, nah.
  10. Get this lad a job booking the bands. It's actually really awful that this year has been pulled, I was likely still going to go, but the line-up was absolutely shocking.
  11. Would be amazing if true (and if it goes ahead obviously).
  12. Call it what you want, unless they have had an actual official, 'we definitely aren't playing this' from the bands management, they'll continue to use the artist to advertise.
  13. I work in an o2 venue and this is exactly it. Even if there aren't shows announced in September/October/November/December, most of the date holds will be in place already, if not confirmed dates. So like you say, it will be a case of fitting in what can be fit in, around what is already there. As well as this, it's all well and good that festivals are looking at pushing back their dates to September/October, but this is only going to work if the bands on the line-up didn't already have commitments booked that far in advance.
  14. As it stands, they're still trying to sell tickets for their event. I've known festivals to have had acts pull out and delay announcing that for a few weeks, because the artist are big ticket shifters.
  15. You're right, they probably are being optimistic. But even if they're not and artists are able to tour September - December this year, the touring schedule is going to be so congested, and are people going to be able to afford it?
  16. Yeah, it was extremely optimistic of me. It’s cool bands are live streaming shows though. Code orange did their record release show and Dropkick Murphys are doing their St Paddy’s day one tonight.
  17. I'm actually hoping that if they ban large gatherings (say over 1000), we are going to get swathes of big bands playing in 100-1000 cap venues, proper underplays.
  18. FWIW I was initially told AFI were headlining the Pit at Reading and Leeds, which it looks like they aren't now. So maybe they are at Trees instead?
  19. So who has tours finishing around that time?
  20. I'd assumed the rise in capacity was because they wanted to start booking bigger bands and not be so low down the pecking order. They're main competition would likely be Arctangent (which is a bit more niche) and Slam Dunk (who let's be honest, are smashing it) and they aren't really anywhere near Slam Dunk, in terms of consistency of the line up. I love a lot of the bands on the undercard, but they need to stop filling it out with bands you could see two or three times a year in 100-400 capacity venues.
  21. Is it stage splits for the whole festival today?
  22. There’s so many big slots to fill still, so this could be really good. But at the moment it’s Just the same filler bands with a smattering of really good ones.
