  1. I know there's some percentage, but I think its quite low. It depends how big of a crowd someone like Black Midi get. If they're high up park, maybe 4th or 5th down, against someone like D-Ross or O-Rod, they could get a fairly small crowd. Maybe a couple of thousand? I think most of the Blossoms crowd will be elsewhere, if there's decent competition. So the amount of people who were at Blossoms in the Black Midi crowd could be in the high double digits or low triple digits depending on who they're up against. I was exaggerating saying they'll be about two, obviously I think there'll be more, but I think it will be a low number. Also thought it was funny putting them in the category of "White Boy Summer" along with Blossoms, Declan McKenna and Sam Fender. Which is why I commented.
  2. I think there's going to be about two people on site who are at both Blossoms and Black Midi. One of which might be my sister, who quite likes Blossoms, and as long as there isn't anything else she desperately wants to see, will probably be dragged a long to come and watch Black Midi with me.
  3. It doesn't need a key word. Once you're on the booking page you can refresh it, you'll still be on it. I'm pretty sure once your on it you can even click the page backwards and forwards buttons and you'll still be able to access it fine. You can turn the refresh off when your on the page, but you don't need super fast fingers to disable it before it refreshes again. It will be fine.
  4. I always find the headliner list on the survey a bit odd. They'd never book most of these to play. I don't see most of these playing the festival ever, they're just not the R&L demographic anymore. Like what are they going to do if everyone asks for Blur? Show it to Damon and try and get them to reunite Blur? It's just not happening. When they get back together they'll probably do their own gigs, couple of Hyde Park ones and Glastonbury. They're not coming to R&L, no matter how much people want them.
  5. It's not a bad song, it's just the second worst on the album excluding FH, and I prefer Lift. So swapping it out would marginally improve the album for me.
  6. OK Computer is a 10. But it would be an even better 10, or an 11, if they replaced Electioneering with Man of War, and Lucky with Lift.

    Are they big Manchester City or Liverpool fans?
  8. I've somehow managed to catch Sam Fender six times. I think he's alright, I'll see him if there's nothing else on. I might see if I can get tickets for his tour as well at some point.
  9. Will we ever get another festival like those again? Looking back some of them are insane. But at the moment there's nothing on that level anymore, is it a thing of the past or could something like them come back at some point?
  10. It's a good tune. It was actually a really great gig, people on here take the piss out of him, and sometimes I do as well. But in my experience at least, the prospect of seeing Jake Bugg is always worse than actually seeing him. I never go in that excited, but at the end of the gig I always end up thinking he's actually pretty good. I'm guessing you weren't actually there though. I don't know what you look like though, so wouldn't have been able to spot you anyway.

    The sound at Gorilla isn't great at the front. As the speakers are positioned about a foot in front of the stage into the crowd, it means you can be either behind or in line with the speakers, so you can't hear the vocals that well. But it's only really a problem if you're at the front, otherwise it's a good venue. thewonderwhy has obviously never been to the Victoria Warehouse.

    Arcade Fire playing the Albert Hall would be magical. I'd desperately try and get tickets for it.

    2023 Headliners

    I have this irrational fear that my three favourite bands, Radiohead, Arcade Fire and LCD will all play the same festival next year (something like Primavera) and I won't be able to go. It haunts my dreams and it gets closer to happening every day.
  14. I didn't think you'd be a Jake Bugg fan.
  15. Anyone else at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester tonight? Looks like it's going to be a big one.

    I didn't think Radiohead would be back touring so quickly.
  17. Was at the YES basement for the first time last night watching Enola Gay. I only realised about a month a go that I could actually get in, as they have wierd rules surrounding the restrictions of the gigs. Most ticketing websites list YES as strictly 18+, but if you click access information it says that under 18's are allowed in the gig if they're with an adult. We had to show the guy on the door a print out that under 18's were allowed and that we had an email from the owner. They were very adamant that I could only go into the gig and if I went in any other part they'd kick me out, they've probably got some tight licensing agreements. First support band was fantastic, it was post punk with added saxophone. It was like BC,NR let loose a bit more on their first record. The guitarist and saxophonist would be playing two separate parts and then suddenly would start to join up and play together getting more and more intense. It was really enjoyable and was better than the act I was primarily there to see. They're called "Maruja" if anyone wants to check them out Second support band was a bit boring in my opinion, loud post punk with lyrics that you couldn't hear. Instrumentals were good though, but it started to grate after a while. Think they're called "Yabba" but I can't find them on Spotify. Enola Gay were good but not great, partly because the support was fairly similar to them. So when you've had 40 mins of shouty post punk that your getting slightly bored of, having another hour or so on top of that isn't the best mix. I bought the tickets a while ago when they only had a couple of songs out, and they've released some new stuff which I don't think is as good, but that's the risk you take with new bands. Venue seemed alright. Was really packed, so could only get in a couple of steps from the door for the first support, although it cleared a lot between the bands. Sound was good, although pretty loud for that size venue. It gets bonus points for having seats at the side so you can sit down between the bands. It was also really hot. I'd get a drink of water next time as it gets warm in there with all the bodies and not much space to move about. But overall not bad venue or bands, I prefer the Deaf Institute for that size of venue though.
  18. Yep. They're on this section of the site: https://shop.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/collections/posters Here's 2019's one where it says it's A2: https://shop.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/collections/posters/products/2019-poster The mount covers a very small amount of the poster, so it can be a bit fiddly getting it to line up (see what I did there?) perfectly, and getting it so it's centred in the middle of the frame with the same amount of border on each side.
  19. The posters are bought directly from Glastonbury, you're able to buy them for most years online. The frames are by "FRAMES BY POST". They've got a website, but I think we bought them from Amazon as it's a lot easier to find what you're looking for on there as you can search the sizes more easily.
  20. As you can see, I've also got 2016 and 2017's posters framed. I think they look great. I'm planning to swap 2016 out after this year's festival.

    I saw this on Twitter. Was anyone listening on Radio 6 or know anything more? Would be great to see them this year.

    I just had them playing on Spotify in the background and didn't realise the song changed, which I'm guessing is the idea, but why?
  23. Why would anyone buy Gold Circle West over Gold Circle East? Unless East is sold out, otherwise your probably going to end up with a worse place. It's also a bit annoying how big the Gold Circle is at Anfield, but we ended up with some great seats for a good value price, so it will be a real experience seeing them for the first time.
  24. You'll want to be by the entrance to the pit just before Wolf Alice ends, you'll be able to get a good spot. The pit for Liam closed a little while after Cinnamon ended, but way before Biffy had finished.
  25. Yeah, I knew it was joke. The other quote reminded me of it, and I thought it was funny so I posted it.
