  1. Fair points. Probably soft committments made in very good faith. Let's hope it works out
  2. I have no idea about the workings of festival politics but I would imagine Bluedot wouldn't say they were unless it was contractually confirmed. Otherwise it would be false advertising no?
  3. Huge relief that we're getting the same headliners. Very impressed with the fest organisers for that
  4. Simply can't see it myself. No signs of things improving in the UK and even when they do it's going to be a long time before people (acts and crowd alike) are comfortable attending mass gatherings me thinks
  5. Jarvis was added at a later date last year and I would be very surprised if EOB subbed the fest. So personally I'm expecting the Sunday sub
  6. Any other guesses than Brian Cox? Doubt they'd have Dawkins back
  7. As someone who is often dead and buried by the Sunday night, I'm all for getting floaty to Spiritualized to finish it off. Difficult to tell as they could've easily been a slightly small but solid headliner in my opinion. Rounded off last year at the Tarantino Disco myself
  8. They left 45 minutes between Gruff Rhys and New Order last year although 20 for Hot Chip and Jon Hopkins. Got a good feeling they'll realise how much crossover there will be for the audience and plan ahead. Is Spiritualized definitely before Bjork though? I assumed the former would close the festival myself
  9. Don't really know much about them but I've seen some of the venue's they've played at it seems like there's no such thing as ordinary with them The tunes I've heard I like so I'd more than take it
  10. True, I would imagine it to be a regular set (with maybe one or two extra from Race for Space) with a big ol' backing band
  11. Wasn't able to see the Halle last time as I was graduating. However, I feel they would have already been announced if they were playing so I'm expecting something different. The dream for me would be Public Service Broadcasting with orchestral backing. Was still very surprised not to see them at the Moon Landing celebrations even though they played the previous year Could the co-ordinates tweet suggest British Sea Power may perform with an orchestra behind them? Is that something they're likely to do?
  12. I'd say the music runs until around 1/2am. Then they had some film screenings that began at 3 if I recall correctly. Not exactly party central at evenings but it goes on after the headliners for sure
  13. Not to mention there were some true gems early in the day last year despite the names being less prominent. It's certainly not Bluedot without Henge and their set provided the most unmissable party of the weekend
  14. Sorry to piss on your chips a bit but Foals are doing Kendal which rules them out. Goldfrapp didn't headline when the last played so can't see that either
  15. BSP also played Bluedot in 2016 and were fifth down on The Orbit stage
  16. Looking at previous dates they couldn't top the bill at smaller festivals. Would be a minnow of a headliner I also doubt they'd be allowed to give headliner clues. Kendal didn't
  17. Could we perhaps know the style of music of the headlining trio?
  18. Also does it have a decent share of synth/dance acts like previous years?
  19. Any UK exclusives or notable reunions per chance?
  20. Pet Shops Boys still the most likely for me. Would've been confident with Beck until those Warehouse shows. Obviously now it's the night before I'm worried I've overestimated everything but time will tell. Personally, I'm expecting at least one UK exclusive as that would justify the long wait
  21. Beating a dead horse a bit really but does anyone know WHEN this week Bluedot will announce. Crazy frustrating for planning that Reading and Leeds is announced and still nothing from this one
