    Bearded theory

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

    Short survey

    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.

    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.

    They’ll be competing with BBC Bigger Weekend from tomorrow as well...

    I do think they’ll be going this big. Makes me wonder what R&L and Vthing are gonna have up their sleeves if BBC stray into their territory, as they’re generally looking for at least a couple of exclusives.

    Artic Monkeys are free, looking at their announcement today. (Also nothing booked for V weekend and R&L weekend - which I had them as certs for one or the other). Can the Beeb go so big? For sure.

    Yeah, forgot they can go with mainstream stuff - does give them a much bigger.market and a wider pool of headliner potential.
