  1. Clutching straws but maybe they could do a festival opening show Friday lunchtime before jetting back to America? Stranger things have happened. Also Liam is in Australia that weekend so I don't think he'll be able to make it logistically If Haim are out though I could see Foals back again - hoping we'll get news by the end of the week or next
  2. I do think Florence will headline again, she's has a few European dates but none in the UK and all probable options (BST, APE, Trnsmt) aren't her so it would make my day if she was on. My bet on headliners is: Friday - Capaldi, Saturday - Florence, Sunday - Haim/London Grammar co-headline Also thinking could Disclosure play a closing dance set as both Underworld and Chemical Bros went down amazingly. Other acts I expect will pop up are Nile Rodgers and Chic, Sigrid, The Specials, Blossoms, Fontaines DC, Charli XCX, Arlo Parks and Idles. I'm also thinking Kasabian could do an opening slot like Supergrass last year. As we all know Latitude is always unpredictable so I'm excited to see who's there
  3. This is my all-time favourite performance of her, so beautiful The lack of Arcadia, Born to Die and Love troubles me greatly though
  4. Looks as if we'll get news in the next few weeks
  5. I can't wait to hear their hit in person!
  6. It's usually been announced January-March time bar last year because of all the uncertainty. I'm thinking we'll get something announced next week when people start getting paid again, people seem to be wanting to make the most of big events now and FR will definitely want to capitalise on that
  7. I think another issue here is simply people sleeping in crowded tents with poor ventilation while at the festival. Consider this and the demographics of people attending who were unlikely to have had 2 jabs at that point and you probably have a perfect storm. Yeah this is a good point too, it's just a bit of a shit show for everyone involved in the sector and for the punters too
  8. Yeah this is definitely part of it, I was thinking also could another issue actually be audience's themselves not being able to attend? Wolf Alice mentioned something in their statement about people not being able to access the gig which I read as people having to isolate. I get people have to miss gigs last minute all the time but the sheer amount of people isolating at the moment might mean sold out shows being rather empty
  9. I saw them in July at Latitude so not too disappointed and at least they've moved it, I'd imagine theyll move it to just before or after the festival season
  10. 2021 - absolute rollercoaster 2022? It will be even better I'm sure! Happy new year everyone, here's to a great 2022 and enjoy whatever you're doing this evening
  11. Glasto and whole festival season is 100% on
  12. Must say I'm very impressed with Test and Trace today - my brother had a positive LFT yesterday so we all went for PCR to double check at 9am today, had results back about half an hour ago (negative thankfully). Very well managed testing center too
  13. I've been lucky enough to go to several gigs this year and Latitude first weekend after restrictions were lifted. My highlights have been: Wolf Alice, Bastille, Chemical Brothers, Supergrass, Rudimental, Declan Mckenna, Kaiser Chiefs, Shed Seven, The Vaccines and The Charlatans
  14. Merry Christmas everyone, I hope you enjoy the day however you might be spending it
  15. Wolf Alice The Vaccines Lana Del Rey The Killers Self Esteem
  16. Seems as if we'll get some info in January as the festival is replying to people about lineup news in the new year, probably middle of the month to make the most of post Christmas payday

    fuck yeah

    I've missed this site so much, glad we're back in buissness
  18. I agree Glasto will probably be the first to pull the plug should it come to it, but I'm confident this won't happen. In the last few days we've given out almost a million boosters a day, keep this going and heading into spring we'll be in a good position. This isn't like last winter with very few jabs in arms and much higher hospitalisations and deaths. Also potential restrictions they're expecting bare no resemblance to lockdown, I don't remember being able to get haircuts or see 6 friends in April 2020. I imagine anything will be eased March time when the decision will probably be made and I expect they'll power on, I mean weve had more info about 2022 now than we had for the 2021 edition. I'd say it's likely to have condition of entry (triple vaxxed/negative test) though. I'm confident it's 100% on
  19. Never mind The Boss, get them to headline
  20. They've headlined Creamfields 2 fests on the trot so I suppose it can't entirely be ruled out
  21. I've seen plenty of this recently as I follow lots on there. There was one who was saying restrictions shouldn't have been lifted in July but happily played Latitude that weekend and recently I've seen others saying about increasing restrictions now but forgetting that means they might have to return to small capacity/zoom shows. I totally get its their income and there's no other way about it but I think again they need to fully consider the trade offs to get working again
  22. I'll give you this stat that boosters are quickly picking up pace by the looks of it
  23. I don't like to comment on scientists very much, but I genuinely think she's lost the plot
  24. Just found this online, absolutely beautiful from her
