  1. Fiona Stewart is quoted in this piece, talking about the likelihood of rapid tests and temperature checks to ensure GM goes ahead: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/oct/04/music-festivals-plan-for-phased-return-in-2021-after-covid-wipeout
  2. It should also be noted that Larmer Tree Festival, which according to Mr eFestivals is now owned by the person who runs EOTR production, have already announced it won't be happening in 2021, presumably to lesson the potential financial contraints on the bigger festival: https://www.salisburyjournal.co.uk/news/18711332.larmer-tree-festival-2021-cancelled/
  3. I'd say Garden Of Streaming was pretty big news... beyond that it's possible that having already committed to nearly all the biggest names from this year's bill they don't want to expand too far on those until they have some idea on how/whether 2021 will happen.
  4. If anyone wants something to commiserate with, or just to help look forward to next year, I had a look for some full sets from some of the top names on the bill - officially shot festival appearances, live fan cams at the front or radio sessions: Pixies, Oyafestival 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is1j071GJm0 Angel Olsen, KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic, December 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP7et0I844w King Krule, Primavera 2017 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Ld98E7nP8 Big Thief, KEXP, October 2019 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oODr-7y3M0 Bright Ey
  5. Where Is My Mind? are doing their music quiz free over Zoom - register at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/where-is-my-mind-x-eotr-2020-in-the-garden-of-music-quizzing-tickets-119093651317
  6. Bon Iver just announced August 2021 European dates with a gap on 20th and 21st...
  7. Tempted to start a Clashfinder for these regardless.
  8. Heavy rain and 40-45mph winds predicted for Friday. The weather gods do know it's not happening, right?
  9. My guess would be that as EOTR doesn't have big screens they've had no need to film anything officially - and I wonder if that's why they're not talking about any online replacement activity.
  10. https://www.greenman.net/news/green-man-field-of-streams/ Father John Misty, Eels, Stella Donnelly and Adwaith sets, special Pictish Trail live show, various special stage and theatre productions, a preview screening of a new documentary on Rock Against Racism, Green Man Rising final, digital arts, Green Man Radio takeover and a virtual Green Man burning.
  11. A lot of other festivals have done likewise but I've seen nothing from EOTR yet (has anyone asked them, come to think of it?) I hope so, though I don't know if they'd have a lot of old footage available or have the clout to commission special home-recorded songs.
