  1. What I love about this festival is that the lineup always takes me by surprise and I get nowhere near in terms of predictions. No harm in trying though: Thurs - Beach House Fri - Angel Olsen Sat - Yeah Yeah Yeahs Sun - Idles Also wonder if the Pixies are on Simon's radar? Would also love to see (based on the new albums I have enjoyed this year): WH Lung, Big Thief, Whitney, Comet is Coming, Modern Nature, Jason Lytle, Marika Hackman, Soft Cavalry, Jane Weaver. Whatever we get, I know it will be fun...
  2. Really happy with the line-up. There is at least 20 things I would like to see, and that's before any new discoveries in the next 7 months. I think the headliners are good - Spiritualized are one of my favourite bands and metronomy are always good fun. Im surprised that Beirut are headlining above Courtney Barnett (who I thought was a dead-cert for a headline spot) but the fact that they are both playing is cool. This years surprise is Michael Kiwanuka - I really liked some of his last album but have never seen him live before. It does make me think that Simon and the team have heard his new album (he must be due one?), or least some of it to feel it's the right booking. Ultimately, I always have fun at EoTR, l and can't wait to see what other delights the team have in store for us.
  3. Each to their own. I think they would be great. Probably won’t happen though. After GM announcement, I am going to revise my guesses. Will be pleased if I get one out of four. Courtney Barnett Young Fathers Ryan Adams Spiritualized outside bet - MBV (I say this every year) undercard - eels, comet is coming, Jessica Pratt, Panda Bear, Mercury Rev, antlers, Jenny Lewis, Is Beth Gibbons doing shows this year? ....but what do I know!
  4. Raconteurs announced for APE today. Potential EoTR headliner?
  5. What I love about EOTR is that I have no idea who is going to be announced. Its always good fun to try and predict it though. My guesses: Courtney Barnett Young Fathers Ryan Adams Sharon Van Etten Also, any EoTR regulars also done Green Man? Any comparisons/differences? EoTR is a given, but might have room for another this year...
  6. Any clues from the primavera lineup? I know it’s a few months before, but just seeing who is touring this year spiritualized would be good. No point in trying to guess as always have no idea, but always pleasantly surprised. Are MBV likely to play? im guessing MBV, Bon Iver and Bonnie Prince Billy. Which means it isn’t going to be any of them.
