  1. Before this festival the flags annoyed me but I’ve come round, think they’re great. A signature and essential part of the festival. Would have been impossible to find mates without them.
  2. Folamour’s flight was cancelled, he said on Insta that he travelled to multiple airports to try to make it work. it was a bit of a night ruiner for my lot too, we should have gone back for FloPo but just went stone circle instead - which was good as always but obvs not the same thing.
  3. Bar Lorde was it mentioned by any non-US artists? Thought all references were particularly powerful, particularly Olivia rodrigo’s
  4. Ah yeah sorry the original comment I’d replied to on reddit had already called them out.
  5. For techno there’s off the top of my head: Giant Swan (live) Fjaak DJ set HAAi Daniel Avery Pangaea x Pariah Jon Hopkins DJ set Elkka Joy Orbison (Pls do not comment with “not real techno” x)
  6. I posted this on reddit when some guy asked for Tech House recommendations Right a disclaimer: this is not my genre, I’d not go see most of these acts for free, and I’ve been quite loose with the tech-house genre (I.e. Chems, Floorplan, PartiBoi69 are not tech house but close enough for your purposes) but see below: Camelphat 0025 - 0225 Glade Thursday Eats Everything presents 1.30 Stonebridge Thursday night Danny Howard 0125 Glade Dome Thursday Denis Sulta 18.00 Friday in Sonic Annie Mac 2115 Friday Glade Patrick Topping B2B Eats Everything 23.00 Sonic Friday Chemical Brothers (DJ) secret set Arcadia 23:00 Friday Dan Shake 1800 - 1930 Stonebridge Saturday Calvin Harris 0100 - 0200 Saturday Arcadia Kettama some time between 23:00 and 05:00 in Stonebridge Saturday, he’ll probably play 90 mins. Special Request multiple times between 23:00 and 05:00 in Stonebridge Saturday. Floorplan 2245 - 0015 IICON Sunday Gorgon City - 0000-0115 Lonely Hearts Club Sunday Sonny Foders 0115-0230 Lonely hearts club Sunday PartiBoi69 0200-0400 Gastower Sunday Also missing from this list is TSHA, she is not a tech house DJ, but is just straight 90s style rave and house, is a top tier DJ and is playing 3 sets over the weekend. For Tech House the pick of the bunch for me is Kettama, he’s top tier.
  7. Someone suggested Discord, which as far as I understand is good for specialised threads like this.
  8. In case we lose this thread for any reason, given we’ve already DDiamond (rip), I’m at WinterIsntComing on Reddit. Be a shame to lose this community probs my favourite thread on the internet.
  9. Nah we’re all on coach unfortunately! Strong group of about 13 of us in 5 tents so going to be tough.
  10. DDiamond being banned is fucking outrageous tbh. Electronica thread rise up
  11. Yeah agree entirely. Unsure why every post has to be dead serious discussion, feels like long term users are being banned willy nilly, and maybe some people do actually like Mika. Saying that obvs (VPNs aside) Neil would be able to see who is making sock/alt accounts mind (IP Address, MAC address maybe) which is absolutely embarrassing behaviour tbh so fair enough id probs ban too.
  12. Stressed about this to be honest. Coach from Liverpool so absolute earliest I can be through the gates is after midday. Thinking Pennard will be completely full, Oxylers and Paines maybe too. Was hoping for a more lively campsite than Dairy last time but not looking good.
  13. Yeah agreed. I’m sure I nipped for a piss halfway through and found my way back reallly easily.
  14. Nonsense haha I’d a mate who was in a k-hole that had to lay down for the entire set (we were only there for the acts either side of her and then couldn’t leave due to mentioned k hole). we were pretty central and maybe 15/20 rows back and him lying there all set was literally no bother.
  15. It wasn’t massive no, it was big but it wasn’t uncomfortable. Wasn’t nearly as busy as the Other headliners that weekend. It was more noticeably big because it was bigger than Loyle Carner and Dave either side of her (and consisted of a festival-goer demographic I’d never experience until that point).
  16. Lol I know the forum skews older but this is so much older than I expected so far.

    Kendrick Lamar

    It was very hard to get tickets for DAMN tour in the UK, at least for venues I tried for I wasn’t able to get tickets.

    Kendrick Lamar

    Reckon there’s basically almost no chance this song is ever performed live tbh if that’s any comfort.

    Kendrick Lamar

    On about listen 5 now or so. do think it’s great, I don’t think it’s as good as GKMC or TPAB, think there’s definitely a lull in the middle, but plenty of great stuff. N95, Purple Hearts and Mr Morale the big tracks for the live set, Die Hard too I suppose but I’m not big on it. United in Grief, Auntie Diaries and Mother i Sober are so intense. His mentions of Keem on it and their relationship has made me view Keem in a different light; and I think it’s really nice that Kendrick has basically just really helped out his cousin. Good for him.

    Kendrick Lamar

    Tiny fraction of people tweeting angrily about it, almost entirely gen Z people. All of the queer people I have on socials who would pay attention to that kind of thing either emotionally love the song and what Kendrick is trying to do, or are making ironic jokes about it.

    Kendrick Lamar

    I love We Cry Together, think it’s a great semi-skit. Yeah it’ll probably get skipped in time but so do most of Biggies.

    Kendrick Lamar

    Ah yeah course. id argue that’s the same as the other two songs though, as he’s making a point about his own (and everyone else’s) morality. He’s not meant to be a good person using the correct language in the context of that song.
