  1. can we, like, start pretending its a bit shit? So, when tickets do go on sale, it would be a mad scramble, like its the last bog roll on the shelves?!?
  2. does anyone have a link to the original article, please?
  3. I think this is where most medium sized festivals are at. It all depends on when the govt decide when we are allowed to play, how the vaccine rollout is affecting the infection rates etc etc. I would guess its 50/50, innit.
  4. I change my mind daily between optimism and pessimism. Yes, the vaccine programme is going VERY well. However....we are still reliant on a tory government implementing the programme. And, as we have seen throughout the covid 19 situation, they do have the ability to fuck up royally. So.....I dont know... However, if it doesnt happen, Im sure it will go ahead in 2022 thanks to the deep pockets of Festival Republic. Unlike some smaller festivals.... Worrying times....
  5. This is incorrect. I was there at Latitude. And the crowd was the smallest I have ever seen for a headliner. lucky if it was 8 deep from the front. VERY empty. Shame, as I like them. Course, if you were after a headliner who could play in a socially distant way.....
  6. £22.50 for this looks blinding value! BUT....will it go ahead? ALSO....due to having a child who will start school next year, we cant go to EOTR next year. So, having got a refund, we were gonna buy tickets for this instead. Anyone have any idea when (if?) tickets will be back on sale?
  7. I would go, if I didnt have a child considered to be 'at risk'.
  8. We will have to check to see. It depends on term times for our kid's first school year. If it was just a normal end of summer break, we would take her out of school to go. First school year?!? She will have to go, wont she? If we cant go next year, I wonder if we can 'rollover' our tickets till 2022....IF not, we will use that refund and invest in Green Man or another independent festival. Gutting.
  9. yeah...its worrying.....best thing, I guess, is to keep tickets for next year (so no need for tickets refunds), whilst having a bit of understanding when line ups arnt QUITE as 'great' and there isnt as much other offerings as they used to be for a few years while they recover costs etc. We (me and clan) dont think we can make it next year, due to child starting school. IF it was just a start of a new school year in the same school, we would be there in an instant. But.....new school.....its different, innit. Bloody kids.
  10. I dont suppose you can put a link up, could you? please? (Im not on any (anti)social networks....)
  11. This is a VERY good point! For a lot of us, festivals are just as important to the cultural fabric of the country as venues are. I havent heard of any company (Festival Republic, Live Nation etc) or the independents asking for help etc. They might be, but the media (BBC, Guardian, specialist music sites) I read arn't highlighting it if they are....Maybe they should. Because, with a tiny few exceptions, I would NOT want the festival 'scene' to disappear because of this nastiness.... I will write to my MP. He's a tory, so wont know his arse from his elbow, but its something.....
  12. According to the filings in Companies house, their last accounts filing (ending Oct 2018) stated that they had £375,330 of equity. With a smallish festival, Im SURE that would cover a year of not having a festival on. Costs will be substantially down, do to not hiring all the infrastructure needed, artists not being paid etc. They seem to run their festival VERY well, so Im SURE they would be one of the events with will continue to thrive in 2021 and beyond, not matter what the line up is next year (if it gets cancelled).
  13. I don't have the answer either. Maybe....this trial for a vaccine goes super well and our manufacturing capabilities are suitable enough to vaccinate at least those most vunerable, so we can be let out to play etc. Looking at the evidence, I obviously don't think that WILL happen (it requires a belief in anything Matt Hancock spews out of his lying mouth which borders on the insane). But.....again, the way this thing escalated was so quick that.....I just wonder..... could it be reversed just as quick, for an as yet undefined reason? I figure not. But....I need SOMETHIN
