    Are we still confident on Jack White and George Ezra tommorow?
  2. Setting up in Big Ground now. Walked through Coach Entrance of Gate A and one of the questions they were asking was: "Got any crisps?". As well as the usual: "Got any glass?". I assume they were going to confiscate them if you said yes. We didn't have any, so we were fine.

    Hopefully see you down the front if they play! If there's something good on the JP, I'll definitely go to that though. But I'd head to the Park straight after, hoping to get as close to the front as possible.

    If any of: Arcade Fire, LCD, The 1975 or The Smile play, it'll make my weekend. If you have any info on the above, feel free to message me, I'd love to know.
  5. So The Lockup/Pit is the same, but it's called the FR tent now? What does this mean for the future? 3 days of FR style bookings next year? I'm not going this year, but a 3 day FR as well as getting the R1 to return might tempt me back... The FR usually books the most inline with my music taste, spent about half my day there last year, so it would be great to have it back. I'm not usually a big fan of the bookings on The Lockup/Pit, but it would be a real shame to lose that niche from the festival.
  6. Also at Beck in Manchester tonight. Probably my last gig before Glastonbury, unless some cheap tickets for something come up on Twickets before then.

    Bastille played 4th down in 2019. Have they really done enough since to be considered sub level? Are Mumford's active at all? I reckon they were subbing Taylor in 2020.
  8. Hopefully either: 1) In the coach queue. 2) Walking to Big Ground. 3) Starting to get the tent set up.
  9. It's hard to tell whether they're actually going to be cooking or not. On some of the articles it implies that Gary will be cooking, and others that he's just designing the menu. These sentences imply that he's just curating the menu: Each day, a much-loved face will share the food that brings them joy, in a menu they’ve designed exclusively for Latitude. - Website Latitude will showcase Gary’s skill for creating the perfect dinner menu as he presents “My Catalan Kitchen”. - Website Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, comedian and presenter Judi Love, Amanda Owen - the Yorkshire Shepherdess and award winning food writer Georgina Hayden will each curate a 3-course feast to be served, sharing style, in the beautiful new restaurant, and join the festival diners on the day sharing the story behind their dishes. - Facebook While others imply that they're going to be cooking: Each day a much-loved familiar face will take on hosting duties, preparing the food that brings them joy with an exclusive menu. Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, comedian and presenter Judi Love, The Yorkshire Shepherdess Amanda Owen, and award winning food writer Georgina Hayden will each create a meal to be served in the beautiful new restaurant. That last one could mean that they're just going to be cooking one portion of food before leaving the kitchen. I think they might have a small part in cooking the food, perhaps doing a bit here and there for the first five minutes whilst the cameras are there. Then they'll go and "join the festival diners on the day sharing the story behind their dishes". But to add to your point, yes. They're taking the fucking piss.

  11. I'd love to see it, as Radiohead are my favourite band of all time. But I don't think that Latitude would really go for them, or vice versa. Just as a bit of context, since 2010, they've played 10 times in the UK. 7 of which have been their own tour dates, 2 at Glastonbury, and once at TRNSMT. I don't think TRNSMT would book them again, as they've gone in the indie rock direction, so I think it could just be Glastonbury and their own dates from now on. I don't know how well they'd go down though, probably a few mums and dads who haven't listened to them since OK Computer going to see them and being very disappointed. It would probably be one of the fastest selling day tickets though, as they tour so infrequently as well as tickets being below the £100 mark, I think they'd fly out the door. I just don't think it's the kind of act they'd book. I presume they're reasonably expensive, and there's a lot more acts that would do the job for a lot less. I don't think Latitude is trying to book acts that are Glastonbury headline level anymore, like they did in 2017 and 2018, with Mumford's and Killers. It seems like they're going for smaller, but similar level headliners, that are around the Glastonbury sub or Other headline level. E.g. George Ezra, Lana Del Rey, Liam Gallagher, Chemical Brothers, Foals etc. I think 2019 was the gold standard for this booking style. I think they'll stay booking at this level, as it looks like it's working better for them. On a related note, I went to see The Smile last Thursday, and it was incredible. If you have the chance to see them in the future, I recommend you go if you are somewhat interested in them. They're masters of their craft, and know how to engage an audience in the music. I got there about 3 hours before doors, ended up 24th in the queue, and got a barrier spot right in front of Thom. I was transfixed for the whole gig. Also managed to get a setlist signed by Thom, which was incredibly lucky, my dad managed to catch it as they threw it out into the crowd. If they play Latitude this year, I won't miss them for anything, and they'll be my absolute must see for the whole weekend. Their EU tour ends on the Wednesday of Latitude, and APE implies they've got another UK festival to announce, surely it has to be Latitude???
  12. I think it's been: 7.00 Doors 8.00 Robert Stillman 9.00 The Smile I'm going to see them tommorow, wondering what time to get there as it seems there's a lot of people getting there before doors open.
  13. More of the comedy lineup announced:
  14. Yeah, I was jokingly commenting on the similarity between Albarn and The Smile. As in Albarn was in Blur, and is making depressing music as a solo project. As well as Thom and Jonny being in Radiohead and also making depressing music as a solo project. But to be fair, Radiohead were never really upbeat. I wonder if Gorillaz would ever get booked to headline, they seem the right sort of size and Albarn seems to have a good relationship with the festival. Also not many places for them to play in the UK, played Boardmasters last year, and are playing APE this year. I don't think they're likely to be at Glastonbury for the foreseeable future, they won't be given a headline spot, and probably don't want to take an Other headline slot.
