  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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. So did no one else go to this or what, would like to see other folks reviews of it.
  7. My review of Electric Picnic, I hope you like it. if you just want to read about the music scroll down to Friday 31st. https://niallmcquaid.wordpress.com/2018/09/07/electric-picnic-2018-festival-review/
  8. Nile Rodgers and Chic added to the lineup, quite a late addition to the sub headliners for the main stage.

  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. Whats causing the delay with this announcement , still about 40 acts short of the main stages.

  15. Jeez its a bit of a wait for this second main announcement and I know last year the second announcement was about 23rd June, but apart from the Theatre of Food announcement there has been nothing since March. At this point I think they are taking the piss here considering End of the Road has announced their day splits. I guess that Arcade Fire could be a possible contender with maybe NERD subbing them or doing a co-headline.
  16. New additions to All Together Now Festival in Waterford, Ireland on the same weekend as Bestival.
  17. My bad just checked their facebook page and theres a lineup out.
  18. Is there going be an announcement for this, this year, haven't heard a peep.
  19. This is apparently from a source, it does look a sort of Picnicy lineup and was circulating around the Electric Picnic thread in the Gigs and Events forum of Boards.ie and I suppose we will know proper come 14 hours time anyway.

  20. Nice to see that they paid a tribute to Prince on the second weekend at Coachella.
  21. But what would Miss Marple say?
  22. I thought there was supposed to be a main announcement today, so it seems to be just the Red Bull stage, I thought there was supposed to be a big electronic headliner.
