    BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Bit of light drizzle in Swansea right now, shouldn't be much mud in Singleton Park now as most of the set up is done and they're about to start sound checking. Looks like it's gonna piss down on the Sunday that I've got tickets for, luckily the introducing stage appears to be a tent.

    Primavera 2018

    Shame that. Formation and Romare on the Wednesday night last year was one of my highlights.

    Arcade Fire

    So what's the score with these gigs? The seating plan for Birmingham on Sunday has them playing on a stage at one end of an arena, but I was under the impression the stage is in the centre of the arena?

    Sziget Festival 2018

    Fair play, great addition having Elrow hosting a stage. This is definitely the best Sziget lineup in many years!

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Primavera, The Rolling Stones in Cardiff, Jesus & Mary Chain w/ Echo & The Bunnymen + Peter Hook in Bristol, Mad Cool, Nozstock, Bestival, Green Man (hopefully) Aye, not a bad summer it's shaping up to be...

    Rolling Stones

    Good heavens, no. This isn't an Oasis gig...

    YNOT Festival 2018

    Fair play, they haven't done bad with the lineup this year, all things considered. Certainly an improvement on last year. Just hope they've sorted out the infrastructure issues for you...

    Rolling Stones

    Aye, early train up to Cardiff. I plan on having an absolute skinful. Looking at the past couple of big gigs they've done the support act is usually quite underwhelming, which means more time for necking cans on the street...

    Newbie - Camping Plus Option

    Stewarded that area last year: Plus points: Close to the entrances so not far to lug your stuff Good shower and toilet facilities As you have a designated pitch you can rock up whenever you want and not have to worry about getting a spot There was a Paellaria right by this campsite It's right by The Temple Negative points: It's right by The Temple (no early nights) It's right up the top of the site, so probably the windiest point imaginable. Last year was ridiculous, but hopefully in August it won't be so bad It's the furthest campsite from the main stage and from the public transport pick-up on a Monday I couldn't say whether it was worth he extra money, because I've never paid for an upgrade at a festival. But most of the punters seemed happy enough. I think the water went off for a bit on Friday morning, but it was quickly resolved.

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Fair play to RDB, he clearly cares deeply about what people think about the lineup he curates. It shows what thick skin people like him (and even more-so the Eavii) must have. He's spent a lot of time on twitter today replying to punters, can't think of many organisers that would do that.

    The Downs 2018

    Surely both stages are the yer da' stages?

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Good point, hopefully they're lax on letting people bring booze into the arena...

    Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Disappointing. Is there one act at the top of the bill that will make the casual festival-goer say "Oh my god, they're playing at Bestival! We have to get tickets." ? I understand what Rob is saying about trying to make it a unique lineup, which it is in many ways, but I think you have to strike a balance and have a ticket shifter amongst all that. I'm sure it'll be great when everyone gets down there an' all, but if I was paying for this I'd be hugely underwhelmed.
