  1. Sorry I meant "The government has said that the date will be June 21st earliest (rather than actual( and that they hope to be in a position to remove all legal limits on social contact....."
  2. Some interesting use of language in this statement. Particularly the bit about "the Prime Minister's roadmap of June 21st when he is promising that we will be able to open." I don't think the Prime Minister has ever promised that publicly has he? The government has said that the date will be June 21st earliest (rather than actual) and that they hope to be in a position to remove all social contact (rather than will) and hope to ease the restrictions on large events (rather than will - and even then they are only talking about easing restrictions, so there still could and more th
  3. It’s definitely the line up. I spoke to someone today who works at the place the leak came from. The official announcement is on Monday.
  4. To be fair they do state on the website that they will announce the other 16 in Nov. So now we can all get into a debate about when is first actually second ?
  5. Vaults, The Loft (which is above the Kings pub across the road from Vaults) and LJRs. All within a few metres stroll of each other. None of this 15 minutes walk between venues stuff you get at some multi venue gigs. The timetable is being announced next week ?
  6. Supergrass and Kasabian are definite possibles next year I’d say. Also with the ‘Capaldi effect’ I wonder if they’ll look at trying to bring in a few more younger bigger names next year (although to be honest at the time they probably booked Capaldi he wasn’t as popular as he has become) Agree with pretty much everything everyone says here. Re: chatting / less engaged audience members. We found if we went near the front (relatively easy to do for most acts if you turned up 15 mins early) this wasn’t a problem. Next in Portsmouth is Dials on Oct 5, it’s new music-discovery event
  7. 4th year of the relatively under the radar Dials Festival in Portsmouth - 5 venues. 3 venues basically next to each other, the other 2 5 mins walk up the road in the same building. You can't get an easier multi venue event than this. Plus it's not for profit with any money made given to a mental health charity and the event is run by volunteers. It's all new music and this year there's The Blinders, Another Sky, Porridge Radio, Walt Disco, Saltwater Sun, Talk Show and more. Only £20. Oct 5th - anyone going?
  8. Decent first day I thought. Weather was great. All the bands I saw sounded good but thought some of them were just going through the motions. The Victorious crowd is an odd one though - they seem less invested in the festival than others I go to?
  9. Weather looking excellent for this weekend. I've put a few more site pics up on my Twitter thread for this festival (@BMWavesBlog) also...just noticed that it's not just no re-entry past 8pm but no entry! I'll be there all day but anyone who is just wandering in for a headliner could get caught out if they enforce this.
  10. https://twitter.com/BMWavesBlog/status/1163157369888608257 That link should take you to my video of the site build as of Sunday for anyone that is interested in such things
  11. Surprised Capaldi is on the Castle Stage rather than Common - but then these bookings would have been made a long time ago. I'll probably be one of the few that isn't bothered about seeing him (I'm going to see AK Patterson and Alice Jemima on the acoustic instead) Also I see Brighton's LibraLibra are playing - I missed them during announcements - they've drawn the 'nobody will be there' slot on Sunday first thing which is a shame - they have the most amazing vocalist. They played Dials Festival in Portsmouth last year and are playing that again alongside The Blinders, Another S
  12. Looks like a mac is definitely gonna be required at some points.
  13. From a new music perspective 1. Another Sky (if you like Radiohead meets London Grammar) 2. The Murder Capital (if you like intense post punk with Joy Division references) 3. Celeste (If you like jazzy soulful music with hints of Amy Winehouse)
  14. With only 2 albums and the 2nd only being 37 mins long he’d struggle to do a set longer than that.
