    Primavera Sound 2019

    I expect them to be at PS and BKS which was moved to the same weekend, presumably to share a headliner.

    2018 New Music

    All of Disclosure's output this year has been top drawer.

    2018 New Music

    For me it's band who trouble the charts, then never seem to either evolve or go away. Fratellis, Pigeon Detectives, Kooks etc

    They're great. 'Something for the weekend' and 'Home sweet Home' are ace songs.

    The Rhythm Method. They're like a council estate Pet Shop Boys.

    Pukkelpop 2019

    Can't see them being anywhere but main stage if they were on the line up. And step forward the daughters possible choice, handily touring around the usual first announcement timeframe Edit - saw a rumour on twitter that Coldplay were playing Paris on the Pukkelpop Saturday - presumably Stade de France, could put them in the mix if they decide to open the wallet for them (doubtful though)

    2018 New Music

    Love both bands, probably think the Shame album is the more consistent and more listenable but the Idles album has bigger highlights. Either 'Great' or 'Danny Nedelko' could be singles of the year for me (as was 'Concrete' the year before)

    Contender for the token shite American band for next year https://www.nme.com/news/music/panic-at-the-disco-2019-uk-europe-tour-tickets-2370069

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    Safe to say that the Twigs aren't thought highly of on twitter by Arctic Monkeys fans.

    On Blackheath

    Seemed well attended from the photos on Facebook despite the horrendous line up.

    Electric Fields 2018

    I was fuming about the 'Fuck the English' comment, tweeted Tim Booth who to be fair did tweet back saying it was in poor humour. Left a really sour taste in the mouth at the end of what was a good day and in another festival on another night could have ended up worse than it did. That said, the crowd didn't react to it as I thought they would and there was a few boos directed to the stage from the crowd around me. Just completely unnecessary twattish behaviour from the guitarist (possibly violinist), especially after a less than perfect set. Met quite a few other English people there and a lot had driven more than the 3 hours we did. That said, didn't affect the rest of the weekend at all and got on great with everyone, regardless of which side of the border they were from. Just as it should be. Edit - good review btw. Particularly about Avalanche Party. Thought they were great.

    Childish Gambino ruled out. I'm bang on the money again! https://www.nme.com/news/music/childish-gambino-says-this-next-tour-will-be-his-last-2375413/amp?__twitter_impression=true

    Electric Fields 2018

    Stayed in Family camping and thought it was great. Nice people, loads of space, hardly any litter and not loud at all. Did look over to general camping on the last day and it looked like a tornado had ripped through it there was that much litter everywhere.

    Pukkelpop 2019

    Well it's been a couple of weeks now... 15-19 August 2019. Following on from last years formula of bands playing in the bigger Belgian venues at around the first names coming out in March this year I reckon there's a very high chance of Florence and The Machine and Twenty One Pilots being on the upper echelons of the bill. I'd have added Shawn Mendes to that list but he's ruled out due to being in the US. Given the number of metal festivals around now, I'd be surprised if we got Metallica again although they are rumoured to be doing festivals. Ed Sheeran is continuing to tour until September and Coldplay rumoured be doing festivals but you'd imagine they'd be at RW & Pinkpop rather than Pukkelpop and Lowlands, think it'd be Ed out of the two though if it were to happen. If the rumours about Gorillaz this year were true and they're still around next year I can see them being a possibility. I'd also add the Arctic Monkeys to the list of possibilities and the Foos are heavily rumoured to be doing Reading/Leeds. Throw in the inevitable hip hop/RnB name like Childish Gambino/Weeknd/Drake of course (can't see it being Travis Scott for some odd reason) and one of the organisers favourites (e.g. the Pixies) and I can see it being something like this. Pixies / Childish Gambino / Gorillaz or Arctic Monkeys Twenty One Pilots / Florence and the Machine / Disclosure Kasabian / Foo Fighters / Die Antwoord or Post Malone Predicting Tuesday 12th March for first names, unless we get a big one beforehand (The Foos)
