    GKMC is far better than TPAB in my opinion. Untitled isn't that good really.

    Silver Hayes on late...

    of course not, but it's all about getting people out of the SEC to stop the crowding issues, right? most people don't go to anything down there for any reason apart from a wander about. if you take some of the stuff out of the SEC and move it elsewhere, it creates larger space for crowds, and also means less people will be there too, even if 90% are still there. most people don't even call it the SEC anyway, they call it Shangri-La, you could move Block9/Glasto Latino/The Common elsewhere and there'd still be most people going down there for the first couple of years anyway. it's a moot point really though, they (probably) won't be moving anything from the SEC up to SH as it would probably mean lobbing 3hrs off the finishing times, or 6hrs in the case of Genosys.

    yes, many of us in the dance/electronic thread go to the SEC specifically for acts that are playing Block9 venues, or some of the venues nearby (eg. The Temple, The Cave). I'm sure if Block9 was in Silver Hayes many of us would be more likely to be up there. it would make getting into the venues easier too, as there seems to be a large amount of footfall in Block9 passing through for a gawk, rather than actually caring about who's playing. moving Block9 to SH isn't a runner though IMO. the reason the SEC exists is because of distance from the village, having more noise up in Silver Hayes late into the night/morning (Genosys is open-air and goes until 6am), is very unlikely to happen.

    2019 Headliners

    So basically Werchter have moved their festival forward a week to book these. I think they're booked their for Sunday this year and from past history of play 6 times and 3 in 12 years they sell the tickets, this would be 4 in 19 years. Monkeys played this year, Macca only played in 16 and as said it didn't sell out...it was Thursday but he's huge enough to sell it...I've known others that have. I also personally didn't see it being the most solid year, their dip maybe if you like. Kendrick, it would be two summers after release of Damn and I don't think either Werchter or Glasto will go for that...Glasto would certainly want it when it's new and fresh and he did Puckelpop this year on a 2nd year. Also Stormzy isn't going to headline after never playing Werchter anyway. I think Florence would get booked again for both already but I'm unsure a fest would move for her....she does sell well though.

    2019 Headliners

    I just assumed that GFL preferred The XX closing, as they're a bit more electronic/dancey, which seems to be the preference to close that stage. Going back to 2010, QOTSA and Jake Bugg are the only ones that I'd say are in the same vain as Smashing Pumpkins (ie, guitars, drums, not a bleepy-bloopy sound in sight). The XX, Flaming Lips, Primal Scream and Alt-J kind of straddle the gap of rock vs. electronic, and then you have most Other headliners since then that are far from "meat and veg rock" like Orbital, Chems (x2), New Order, LCD, Skrillex, BBK, New Order, Major Lazer, Massive Attack, Disclosure, Portishead, Rudimental, Deadmau5... it's for that reason I don't see the likes of Liam Gallagher closing it in 2019 (as mentioned in the Other headliners thread).

    for the next Michael/Emily Q&A, someone needs to ask them why the persist with the utterly dreadful tent for Sonic, which finishes at midnight, presumably because the sound can't be contained. get a big normal type one (Acoustic tent size), and bang a few big name DJs in there from 11pm-3am, like Wow beside it, which is far too small for the names they put on, and is constantly wedged for them.

    Bombay Bicycle Club headlining the Other Stage. jesus fucking christ this place even Bring Me The Horizon headlining the Other a couple of years ago was more credible than this nonsense.

    Time for a sister festival on same weekend?

    i know it came from a shop. the point is that GFL were already publicly giving the name of a new event. Yes, Arcadia is a separate company, and they asked GFL to go see the new site with them that was under consideration for VB, after GFL had already gone themselves. so clearly there was a decent amount of planning and thought gone into the idea.

    have RW said that they've moved weekend specifically because of an act? Kendrick played R&L in August and hung around for 5 days to play a 50k festival in Ireland the following Friday.... moving your whole festival for someone that regularly comes to Europe, and has played in Europe one day and the US the next in the past, doesn't seem massively likely.

    Time for a sister festival on same weekend?

    yes, it was, Emily apparently ruled out both a sister festival, and the Variety Bazaar (ie. a different festival on the fallow year in 2021), according to crazyfool above. I wouldn't agree that it was just an idea and there wasn't serious consideration, they clearly put a lot of thought into it, as in the Michael + Emily interview with the Guardian they talk about various plans for it, and went around looking at sites too.

    Questions for Michael

    from 18months ago: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/jan/20/michael-emily-eavis-the-variety-bazaar-glastonbury-festival Why not ballot for tickets rather than the current scrum? David Webb Michael: Oh, nobody would like that. We did suggest that years ago and people didn’t want it. Emily: I think you’d get even more people trying for tickets in a ballot, so you’d end up with even less chance of getting one. I know it’s hard for the people who miss out, but at the moment demand is much higher than supply and we think this is the most pain-free way. We open the ticket site slowly so that they’re not gone in 30 seconds and people have a fair chance. But within an hour, you’ll know whether you’ve got one. e: and noticed one from our own @giantkatestacks whichis related to the Camplight stuff: I’m on the recycling team, is there anything we can do to make the festival greener and leave less trace? Giantkatestacks Emily: This is something we work on all year – and we’re always open to new ideas. We’re currently working on pre-erected tents, and looking at working with various small charities who can put up recycled tents. We actually just won an award at the Greener festival awards, but we’ve always got lots of new initiatives in the pipeline – like the steel cups last year. maybe a charity will provde tents, rather than the for-profit setup of Camplight

    well they went as far as having a name for it, and scoping out sites, even the Arcadia lot going to visit a potential site, so it obviously got some amount of thought. I'm not convinced that the VB won't happen in 2021 tbh.
