    Meltdown 2018

    My row B MBV single ticket is on ticketswap for the exact face value . I went to see them in Birmingham last night instead... It comes with a price, but maybe someone would like a good front spot?

    Have the openers for Mogwai and MBV been posted? I could only find for Low tomorrow (from the band, doesn't seem to be on website)

    Thanks. They have now replied to me and they email tickets by request only because of a bug in their system! So I got mines, but indeed unless anyone is planning to rush last minute to the venue, it is just easier to print the tickets there...

    Still haven't got MBV and Mogwai tickets....

    Kaleidoscope Festival

    A full show is about 2 hours. They will probably do 1h30, or 1h15 if less lucky. They tend to extend their songs quite a bit + banters, so in 1h30 they will only do about 12 songs. I'd be tempted to go for them as well, but I suspect it will be the same 12 songs as last year's tour.

    When do tickets go on sale?

    All Points East Festival 2018

    Hmm, no. body searches, metal detectors, and airport security is NOT something that is part of everyday life, not something I paid for when I am going to see a concert, and not something I have ever seen in other countries except some parts of USA. Large UK venues abuse this by annoying people who bring cameras, recorders, and other things that are neither dangerous or illegal, and that's why I have no interest in going to these big festival shows. If they want to look for crime, then just let Police do that.

    I don't agree that the queue system was good. I missed the queue since when I clicked on the MBV link, there was no button "join the queue", just a button saying "tickets not on sale yet". They can do pre-sale to members if they want, but to me it gives unfair advantage to London based people who already get all the shows. It is not my job to support art exhibition in other cities.

    Yes, plenty of them. Just got 2nd row (but with the price tag of course).

    Really bad setup. Where you click on the MBV show, it doesn't even re-direct you to the queue. And now: "We are holding everyone here for a few more minutes" [...] for NIN tickets. I don't care about NIN, I want to buy MBV tickets! And I don't live in London so no way I will buy some kind of pass.

    No early queue this morning?

    Meltdown 2018

    That was all a bit confusing. I bought for pre-sale Mogwai since the tickets were OK (2nd row of balcony) and I'm not sure tomorrow will be much better. I do hope I can get MBV tomorrow though.

    Field Day 2018

    Nothing for me unfortunately. Even with APE I don't think I'm going to spend 67 quids on the Saturday lineup, so I don't think it's much better (and Broken Social Scene just announced UK club shows). I don't mind, there quite a few good club shows in May and June + Nick Cave/Patti Smith. Field Day was sucessfull in the last two years so I doubt they will have much problem to fill each day, unlike some other non-London based festivals which struggle even with good indie lineups.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    Well the Breeders, Superchunk, and Art Ensemble of Chicago already have their London club shows that week. I prefer that for bands I like (or a Birmingham show!) than some short set at APE. Though of course it would be nice to have decent openers to watch on the Nick Cave/Patti Smith or Bjork days. I am hoping that Sea and Cake will announce something that is not in conflict, and perhaps Mogwai doing Field Day on Friday! Apart from that nothing that I really miss from Primavera. B&S are arealdy touring UK in March and Spiritualized did their Barbican shows last year. Yo La Tengo finish their tour on 20 May and I'm not sure they would wait 4 days just to play again in London. So far Bjork alone is too expensive for me (not interested in anyone else that day so far), but friends want to go so...
