  3. I prefer the old system where hard working peasants were given bread for farming the lord's land.
  4. I'm just amazed that they've pulled in their words an "eight figure sum" festival over a leak. Wonder if it'll be back next year regardless.
  5. Same as any other day festival tbh. Usual standard searches, dogs and random enhanced searches. Couple of years ago saw some kids get "randomly selected" for enhanced search, went as white as a sheet.
  6. It feels like there's maybe another story here because unless I've missed something there's no indication apart from that one story that there may be more lockdowns imminent? Other festivals have similar risks and are going ahead in that time frame, I just don't see how the situation has changed dramatically from say 3 weeks ago to make it less likely it'll be able to happen. Last September there were a LOT of calls for a firebreak lockdown but this is just one story that seems to have made them pull the plug?
  7. I'm not an event planning expert but these recommendations are basically unhelpful. wearing face-coverings when travelling and when at the event; minimising crowding in bars and pubs; reducing the number of people entering events or venues who are potentially infectious; managing the density of crowds in areas such as hospitality. Face coverings are already recommended on transport, almost all large festivals had covid checks to minimise infectious entry, tents with bars in had sides removed or were outdoors and the hospitality I saw (crew side) was all social distanced. The only thing that might not have been done is minimise crowding in bars (but they put most outside from what I saw) and face coverings during (but that was mitigated by testing) Really not sure what the guy in the article is moaning about?
  8. City centre prices aren't exactly great in Manchester and haven't been for a while now, it's crazy how expensive they are. Best I can suggest is a little bit out and travel in, somewhere like Ashton-under-Lyne, train to Victoria in the city is 10 minutes and there seem to be places for £100. Similarly Warrington is only 20 minutes if you get the right train and there are places there for £60-75 it looks like right now. Oldham is on the tram line (takes about an hour though, but places for £50), even Wigan wouldn't necessarily be too bad and has a holiday Inn for £85 on those dates and 30 minute train. It's parklife this weekend and even the famously awful hotel, Sachas, is £469 a night. Good luck! https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/hotel-rooms-manchester-trebled-price-21468181
  9. Really striking how early headliner announcements are a fairly recent thing. Of the 11 in the year before 7 (63%) have been for the last four fests. But in the last decade only 2016 and 2013 didn't have something before Christmas.

  13. That was 2020. They made announcements before covid was a thing we knew about. It wasn't clear they couldn't go ahead until about the time the lineup was ready to be released so they released it anyway in a hope for the best situation. I agree with others in that I think winter won't be great and they won't want to make an announcement if the country has restrictions or there's doubt about it going ahead. So nothing until Feb 2020.
