    Anyone else not got their tickets for Belfast?

    Last night i watched Jools Holland........... and

    The sound during the Manics was awful. Hardly any bass and the keys were too loud. They should be taking lessons from the engineers at KEXP. The sessions always sound spot on for them.

    I'm hoping Vitalic and Justice don't clash. Been meaning to see Vitalic at the 3 or 4 festivals he's been at that I've been present but he's always been on at the same time as someone unmissable.

    Hey @arcuse Just noticed a couple of things in the Clashfinder you did. The Wombats are on twice and Justice/Roisin Murphy need swapping over. Looks like West Thebarton are closing the club stage on the last day which I find amazing to be honest. Not sure if it's changed or not since the new names were released but I'm surprised Justice isn't closing the Marquee as well, especially with the size of their stage set up. The feedback since the new names has been 99% negative on all social media platforms. Lots of people either not going for the first time in years or making this year their last one. People on the festileaks forum actually wishing the organisers have a really bad year in terms of sales. Main consensus is too many unknown names and mainly how bad the Friday is. Sadly that's the day that looks pretty full on most stages. Looks beyond saving. Just hope the organisers take proper note of the feedback and do something drastic, like book some decent, established bands.

    Father John Misty (Friday) and Goldie (Saturday) are the first acts on at Belfast. Both 1pm.

    Still a chance AF will be announced for Lowlands, they've still a biggish space to fill, going off the layout though it looks like someone on the same level as James Bay. Although we've booked the outgoing flight and have reserved rooms I'm also looking around for a better option. The one thing I'm definitely not doing is paying full whack for this if we do end up going. Managed to get a cheaper ticket last year and will be looking to do the same this time.

    That is fucking awful.

    On Blackheath

    Would be a good start. Squeeze had the biggest crowd of the day a couple of years ago. Really gonna keep an eye on this one.

    Think De La Soul may have been added to Lowlands as a side note to performing with Gorillaz. Despacio would sort my weekend out. I'd even cancel karaoke for it.

    Thanks Arcuse. Much appreciated. Can't see many more big names to be added, if any. Interesting how they've gone heavy on the Belgian names early this year, and a lot of them high up the bill. Edit - think you're right with the Castello for the last night. Am surprised Black Angels are in there at all but they should be finishing with a more DJ based couple of sets as per usual. Always a good way to end the festival in there. Dusky, Tensnake and Etienne De Crecy were superb a few years ago.

    Gonna organise a karaoke night at the Irish Times. Us lot singing songs of bands they should have booked.

    Your right of course but it's made worse when the other 'headliner' is OATW.

    Can't imagine many people paying 100 Euros+ for that day.
