    Godiva 2019

    Budget of £150,000, that doesn’t go far these days. Totally unrealistic to get anything like the line-ups they’ve been putting on in recent years with that. But they won’t draw the numbers they have been getting with any less than a line-up of a similar status, which means their food and drink rake, merch sales and car parking fees will be less as well. Must put future years in doubt. Simple way would be to follow Bingley Live’s approach and sell bargain basement tickets to recoup some cost. If they maintained the kind of line up they’ve become known for, and charged £20-£25/day, they should be ok.

    Why would you put that line-up out and not put tickets on sale until March?

    British Summer Time 2018

    I was at Paul Simon. I hated it, was just too big. Had a feeling it wouldn’t be his last show when I bought the tickets on the day they went on sale, and so it proved to be. Fortunately I am going to the final New York show. I thought James Taylor was perfect for the early evening sunshine, though the set was samey throughout.

    Bearded theory

    Rowdy energetic teens? That must be a different festival you’re thinking of!

    Do you want me to write your dissertation for you as well?

    Short survey

    I see many impossibly shit surveys this time of year by desperate studes who post and then disappear. This one is right up there in the impossibly shit stakes.

    Sound City 2018

    Forgot it had moved weekends this year so Blossoms are possible.

    BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Is there any significantly sized festival this summer where either NG or LG isn’t playing?

    It’s dissertation season. Unable to answer due to incoherent questioning.

    Cool Britannia

    Yeah I knew about Truck - and of course, Y-Not, which was even worse, with the Sunday cancelled.

    Cool Britannia

    That looks ok then, he did well with the Rewinds, and obviously had a worthy product for Global/Broadwick to take them. I knew they’d acquired Boardmasters but didn’t realise they took Rewind as well.

    Cool Britannia

    A lot of those Cool Britannia bands would have been royally screwed by H&G last summer, doubt they’d touch him with a bargepole. Edit: however I am curious. So I searched companieshouse and Impessario Festivals PLC (Rewind, Boardmasters, Field Day?) is in liquidation and winding up proceedings commenced Sept 2017.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    There’s gotta be an element of crossover with whatever the 6Music line up is. Although as rumoured to be Belfast, probably not gonna lose many sales to that - but could take out some possible artists.
