  1. Big image are decent (used to be called Ivory Wave), Planet are like an off brand Lidl version of DMA's (the lead singer is Johnny Tooks brother), Andrew Cushin is a bit of a Noel Gallagher wannabe. No clue on the rest. Was hoping for holy youth movement but they're obviously not there.
  2. Eve has pulled out as well, so a replacement will be announced soon apparently.
  3. Bit better than expected tbh 🤏
  4. + Some day splits I haven't seen before
  5. More acts announced Tues 22 Feb next week
  6. Not sure, but my expectations are low if the tramlines and truck second waves were anything to go by - barely worth the wait/announcement...
  7. More on the way, what sort of names can we realistically expect?
  8. So still one headliner (that's headlined before) to be announced. Looks pony so far imo, a lot of room for improvement. Hoping it's because it's the first lot...
  9. I remember you from the other two cancelled event threads 2020/2021 - I'd say your record so far hasn't been bad haha
  10. Ahhh fuckity fuck, I hate that band with a passion.
  11. Thinking it could remain largely unchanged tbh with an added big name or two - looking forward to seeing something soon though, was utterly depressing when it was cancelled again
  12. Beyond caring any more. The governments contempt for the industry coupled with the upside down rules (on what type of events can happen vs which can't) is just impossible to try and even understand. It's bullshit.
  13. Yeah, painful - I'm still trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. No point pumping messages out unless they have something definitive to say. But, it's bloody close now with it being July, time for a decision.
  14. To be fair DMA's could have done this too, but looks like they aren't. They had about the same number of dates too...
  15. So it could be: DMA's, Pale Waves, Kelis and Eve that are out. Doesn't Tim Booth live in LA? Not sure where that leaves James
  16. Disappointing, but if that's the biggest hit we'd take then so be it. Just need to know one way or another now.
  17. Good catch! Edit: If that's the case then their Leeds Millennium Park gig I'm going to is probably done for as well.
  18. I guess because they're an international act? Arguably it can't be them as: - they're also doing tramlines which is going ahead - they're only playing UK dates all the way until August, it looks like their plan is to travel here, quarantine and then do the string of only UK summer dates Kelis is an international act, but I mean
  19. It's one of those where I'm trying not to get hopes up whilst also thinking - "well, wouldn't they have just cancelled if it wasn't going ahead by now?!"
  20. I think the obvious point would be that some restrictions would actually still be in place (proof of negative test / proof of double vaccine for entry) to make events safe.
  21. Key bits: - Trenchard said that following the publication of the Events Research Programme first round report, he understands that Covid-safe event guidance will imminently be made available by Government. “We are confident that all the work we have been doing means we have got ahead of that guidance and we are in a good position when it comes out,” he said. - A negative pre-event Covid lateral flow test will be a prerequisite for attending Standon Calling, mirroring similar processes seen at the Government’s test events. The results of the tests will be fed into verification app Certific. - “One of the reasons we are able to go ahead is that Standon Calling has quite a short build time, it is a medium-size festival of 17,000. It only has a two-week build schedule, and so that has allowed us to push the costs back as far as possible. Our suppliers have been amazing. Without them we couldn’t have done this.” https://accessaa.co.uk/standon-calling-owner-discusses-decision-to-press-ahead-with-event-on-22-july/
  22. In my (possibly simplistic) way of thinking, Y Not should do exactly this!
