    Latitude 2018

    I thought I heard him as well. But yes.... beers.

    Latitude 2018

    There's not a huge amount but a few bits and pieces - although because there are only a few things some of them can get very busy (for example there's a full programme running in The Speakeasy (The 'literature / spoken word' arena) which will probably be very busy). Thursday is always good for a general wander round the site, checking out where everything is and seeing what odd goings on you can spot. I'd also recommend getting down to the Waterfront stage early for Crxss Platfxrm at 20.15 which looks like it will be quite a cool production - but again it will be very busy so get there early for a good view! We plan to get a beer and just chill out near the stage at least half an hour before - maybe more. All of Thursday's attractions are live on the App BTW.

    Recommendations for fun bands.

    Another vote for Confidence Man (the most fun you can have with your clothes off - although expect some down to underwear stripping in stage from Sugar Bones of the band). And also another vote for Oh My God It's The Church - saw them for the first time at Bestival last year (and saw them again after in a club) and they are hilarious and will get you dancing with their 'Sexy Jesus' message.

    Latitude 2018

    Obviously you won't get the best spots but I'd still say it's a lot easier to find a space than arriving at Glasto late which can be a nightmare. Just head of the main paths and it shouldn't be too bad - probably more space on the outer edges of Green camping.

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Ah sorry! My mistake. The capacity is the same this year as it was last.

    It’s a 30,000 capacity site. When it was on the IOW it was 50,000. And yes it’s a bit cheaper.

    Latitude 2018

    Decent. They headlined a few years back, so a good sub. I saw them play The Troxy last month and they were on top form. They played songs from virtually all periods of their career and even threw in the rarely played Lazy Line Painter Jane (my favourite B&S song) as part of the encore.

    Victorious Festival 2018

    Without knowing your tastes it’s difficult to say, but I really like Stereo Honey - indie guitars and falsetto vocals. I saw them earlier this year and they were decent.

    I always wonder when people complain that a line up is weak / poor - do they mean the quality isn't there or just that they haven't heard of the acts? There's been lots of quality announced. I tend to look at the undercard of festivals as much as the headliners (the headliners of tomorrow....). This year I'm excited for Gang Of Youths, Black Honey, Superorganism, Hannah Peel, Naaz, Aemak, Jade Bird, Whenyoung, Confidence Man for starters....

    Victorious Festival 2018

    It’s funny how we perceive things differently isn’t it? I think it’s an excellent 2nd announcement. Brian Wilson makes it for me but the undercard is looking good now as well.

    Latitude 2018

    Roisin Murphy, Sigrid, The Roots, De La Soul and MGMT are all doing Somerset House shows around the time of Latitude. I wonder if any of them will be on the bill?

    Would you say Bestival suitable for children?

    Depends on your kids. Your 14 year old will probably love it. It may be a bit much / hedonistic for the young ones, but there are places / spaces to get away from it all on site.

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Yep. Totally different. I go to both (as Victorious is just a few mins walk from my house) but you can’t compare them. The Bestival line up is far braver / diverse and is about the whole ‘experience’. Victorious is a lot less imaginative and immersive but good value for money if you just want to see a bunch of bigger names that maybe aren’t as big as they used to be.

    100% agree. Rob da Bank has always been very active on social media and wears his heart on his sleeve. The fact he tries to personally respond to people rather than just a PR company is great IMO.

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I think this is an interesting booking. When do many festival line ups are so so samey at least Bestival has a slightly different look with it’s top names. I’ll reserve judgement about watching them until I have heard their stuff but at least it’s not just someone playing everywhere else.
