  1. Well the National and the Fontaines DC have been announced and a big announcement is apparently happening at 10 AM tomorrow of about 30 acts, so will post the poster if it appears.

    Rock en Seine 2019

    So the lineup so far for this is The Cure, Major Lazer and Jorja Smith and a nice wee advertising campaign from Aphex Twin who seemingly is also playing and seems to be his first announcement for later summer dates after his announcements for April this year.

    Electric Picnic 2019

    Well news on the EP social media has stated that the launch announcement is to be on the 13th March this year, woo hoo bring it on.

    Record number of people trying .

    I see the same happening with Electric Picnic in Ireland these days, tickets sell out on the day of the announcement or before the actual announcement in the middle of March, perhaps not as rapid as Glastonbury but its getting increasingly harder to get them. There was hardly any resales nearer the Picnic this year and tickets were going for up to 400 Euro each. Thankfully I was working as an advanced volunteer the week before, but about 40 weekend volunteers disappeared as soon as they were accredited and I heard the same with some of the security at the festival too. So it probably means the bond price will be increased to insure this doesn't happen with weekend crew.

    Bestival going into administration?

    It seems POD's All Together Now festival in Ireland (same weekend as Bestival) is also having money problems, with artists and musicians complaining of not being paid although ATN are selling early birds for the 2019 festival. It would be a pity if Bestival kicked the dust as I've always wanted to try this one, it used to happen the weekend after Electric Picnic and looked to have a very similar vibe seeing it also started in 2004.

    Nile Rodgers and Chic added to the lineup, quite a late addition to the sub headliners for the main stage.

    On the same weekend in Ireland there is going to be 4 or 5 festivals competing against each other too, All Together Now, Indiependence, Castle Palooza and Beatyard in Dublin.
  13. I just heard on another forum that Camp Bestival was cancelled today due to extreme weather conditions, I found the BBC report here. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-dorset-44997816
