  1. yeah she is as did see her last time she played Bluedot 🙂
  2. Really happen they have got Metronomy (personal fav) and Groove Armada (not seen before), plus a few regular acts I enjoy seeing (Henge, Stealing Sheep, Radiophonic workshop, Hannah Peel etc).... need to check out some of the other names I'm not familar with but happy with this lineup.. My other festival is bearded theory who have an awesome lineup this year!! so happy bunny here 🙂
  3. They both had tours to sell, so reckon that was the reason for the delay... I'm hoping for both as love Metronomy (been asking for them on the questionnaire thingie they do each year, actually asked for Bjork too so double winner!) and never seen Groove Armada 🙂
  4. made up The Hives are playing as great at interacting with the crowd!! plus Frank too 🙂 Surely Echo and The Bunnymen are Friday subs given they are at Wolverhampton on the Saturday??
  5. I think we will get Echo & the Bunnymen back too given this festival puts them in Wolverhampton on the Saturday..... I really hope so Hoping the Undertones are back on the lineup too 🙂
  6. Thinking of treating myself to a stay in one of the posh tents... anyone stayed in them before and what they like? Are there big queues for the showers? If anyone has an pics I'd really appreciate it 🙂
  7. Tickets back in the bag for next year so made up about that 🙂 I think they should look to book up and coming band called Witch Fever from Manchester as seen them so many time now and they are amazing!!! please book them guys!!
  8. I'm hoping they will be confirmed later, as 80s cheese is a must 🙂
  9. oh my word!! I am so sorry to hear this and sending virtual (((hugs))) and condolences your way xxx
  10. Saw her at Bluedot.. totally go for it in that small setting it will be fantastic
  11. Not a festival but was gutted when whitesnake cancelled gig last year but they have announced new tour next May... so actually bought tickets for the 1st time in forever for something!!!! Hoping to buy Bearded Theory tickets too as handed mine back in as needed the money Small steps for me but buying gig tickets has made me happy 🙂
  12. The cynic in me things the plan was to piss people off enough to say "f**k it" and get back to normal without precautions = boost the economy Then as you say gets to hide whilst this sh*tshow unfolds further App will get a few deletions too... It's such a mess 😞
  13. They're really good live.. caught them at Cotton Clouds festival a few years ago, great band
  14. This made me laugh 😂 (it's the little things that keep you sane..)
  15. Was just about to post this.... they really are just leaving us to it and gone "fuck it" we want our holiday break, if some of you get sick or die so be it 😞
  16. in other news you might survive covid but our transport secretary is going to increase the number of knackered HGV drivers on our roads.... H&S out the window Jesus!! (saying that I'm not sure transport company unions will allow this tbh)
  17. I think it will be the same for here in Greater Manchester too give our case rates at the moment, most people (barr the anti-maskers) seem to be okay to keep wearing them in public transport settings if they can be removed elsewhere..
  18. This will be interesting to see how it will be enforced, I know quite a few airlines have already stated mask wearing is staying and I guess much easier to enforce..... Personally I see a U-turn from Gov on Monday about use in public transport as we know they like to gauge public opinion 1st and so far there has been a leaning acceptance towards mask wearing in public transport settings
  19. That's not what he is saying at all... read the rest of the thread and he's highlighting that the bunch in charge are saying one thing but doing another - not helping poorer countries by helping pharma protections. He's highlighting the utter BS this Government is coming out with.. Edit - I see some random member with 4 posts to their name since joining in 2018 has downvoted me for some reason... care to explain why???
  20. I dread to think what our place will be doing, as they have a very bums on seat culture before covid and get the feeling the attitude of managers have not changed on that However, they have brought in a 3rd party consultancy group to look a different working models and we all had to fill in a questionnaire so it will be interesting to see what they do.,,, My manager isn't very flexible or reasonable, christ I complained that I wasn't happy still using my own laptop to do work so pushed for them to provide me one (answer was no) - so I was trying to reason it wasn't fair I'm not being provided equipment and was told "well you have perfectly good equipment in the office but you refused to go in" - how that works with the lockdown months I have no idea, but I just can't seem to have a reasonable conversation with my manager about this so I fully expect to be told to be back in the office by end of month 😞
  21. Tweet from a forum favourite lol but seriously I really do hope all these doses don't go to waste, it would be a travesty!! 😮
  22. What fresh type of hell is this??!! (and there is a song too....) bloody hell
  23. your Mam for sure unfortunately
  24. my fella is 48 and he never got an invite from the GP, I organised jab for him at local hub as soon as he was eligible which is like 4-5 weeks ago Me on the other hand had multiple texts about jab invite - we both use the same GP and live in same house so it's not always a given getting an invite
