  1. I'm having sweats just catching up on resale posts on here, god knows what resale day will be like! 60 odd days to go!...
  2. Does the Revolut card definitely have a VISA sign on it? About to get one for resale day, and would like to know for sure that it will work before I affect my credit rating... Worth a call to the festival office?

    Volunteering 2020

    Same, anyone know anything about shift patterns working in the Avalon bars for shelter?
  4. Water aid opens tomorrow for anyone looking at volunteering. Good luck...
  5. That is VERY exciting!!
  6. Queues will be non-existent. Will send a DM with other info - may not be until tomorrow.
  7. Have a check and let me know x
  8. Myself, just need to learn an instrument / to sing.
  9. Sorry I've not been hugely active - just popping in occasionally. I tend to fall down a rabbit hole when I come on so have been limiting visits as it's depressing! Just got time for the occasional argument about Oasis reforming...! Not had a chat - do you need anything from me?
  10. Excellent festive positivity! Is there anyway I could find a pair of tickets in my stocking tomorrow?

    Oasis 2021?

    Thanks for your dismissive and abrupt comment based on knowing nothing about me. I worked as a journalist for several years, I know very well how The media works. I still have regular dealings with local press. I appreciate often the stories come from an innocuous comment being misrepresented, or from an angle being created by a journalist asking a leading question. The fact people want to read these stories means they get created. However, the fact Liam / Noel are prepared to moot the possibility of a reunion means there is *some* desire for it to happen. I’m not suggesting they are hell bent on it, but there appears to be some will between them for it to happen at some point. As far as not having had the chance to see Oasis goes, I appreciate they were gigging within my lifetime. However, I grew up (and still live) in a rural area. Between my 16th birthday and Oasis splitting up, they went on one world tour, abandoned a second world tour and played 3 gigs at Heaton Park, more than 400 miles from my home. In total they played 25 gigs in this country between me being of an age where I could see them and their split. Only 2 of those were within 300 miles of home. I did travel to gigs at that point, regularly travelling an hour or so to my nearest city, and on occasions went further, for example going to London to see Pixies for my 18th, but that was very much the exception. Not really much of a chance I’m sure you’ll agree. Yes, I could have got to an Oasis gig, but it would have taken a lot of effort and expense to see a band that at the time I wasn’t crazy about. I was more interested in spending £6-10 on a gig, £8 on a train and a few quid on drinks a couple of times a month for bands I really enjoyed in small venues than on spending c£150-200 on one stadium gig. In the intervening years I’ve developed a different appreciation for Oasis. I think I’m fairly representative of lots of people my age and younger so I do feel there’s a demand. But again, thanks for your insightful input. Great example of nominative determinism given your username?

    Oasis 2021?

    I think it would be hugely positive if they did. Sure they don’t really need the money but there is obviously a desire from Liam and Noel for them to do it otherwise these stories wouldn’t keep surfacing. As someone else said there’s a whole generation growing up who’ve never had the opportunity to see Oasis live. I’m 32 and I’m in that camp. Despite that lots of people a lot younger than me are really familiar with Oasis songs and play them regularly. I’ve seen 30 odd 13-year-olds singing along to Wonderwall and don’t look back in anger. I’ve no doubt that if Oasis headlined it would be massively popular with an enormous crowd singing along to every word. I am very sceptical that it will happen but if it did I’d be there in a flash.

    Apologies if this has been posted and I missed it - please delete if so. BUT I spotted this news yesterday: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.nme.com/news/music/liam-gallagher-oasis-reunion-glastonbury-2021-2590477%3famp Likely or wishful thinking?
