    Acid mother temple - vessels - george fitzgerald - slowdrive - orb That is an unbeatable run of marvellousness Shame about Numan and Lamb, though And can anyone tip me off when Dawkins is on - I can't see him on the Clashfinder but that doesn't mean he isn't there

    If its a comfort, you didn't miss much. I was already in the tent, and when it started filling up I foolishly thought I should hang around for what looked like a hot ticket. Well, it was certainly hot - unbearably so - and while he was perfectly pleasant and quite good fun he answered most questions with "I don't know" and said very little of genuine interest. A generally uninspired hour I regretted bothering with

    There's loads on Gumtree - I think I even saw one for Saturday. And a lot of them are being sold by people living close to the festival, so I'm guessing you could probably arrange to pick it up from their house Good luck!

    And actually, far more usefully, I should add the BBC are saying no more rain for you until Sunday. Fingers crossed

    Good to hear it - my work is done. NOw, I really should stop torturing myself coming on this Forum when I should be in a field, but have in fact just finished hoovering the kitchen

    Beware of the clashfinder. I based Thursday, in particular, purely on how many acts there were, and how long acts tend to play for. I have no insider knowledge at all, and did it just for fun. Please don't commit yourself to anything important off the back of it. That said, I think @Gnomicide found a tweet from the Bearded folk saying they were surprisingly accurate, but caveat emptor, and all that

    Ruddy eck you're talking about weather - must be getting close. I was litter picking on that Wednesday and it was tough, I can tell you, but I'd take it anytime over the horror show of the previous year. anyhow.... Just nipped in to say that while I sadly won't be attended this year, and am still smarting over that fact , I've just come back from seeing "October Drift" supporting The Slow Readers Club, and while the headliners were fine, it was the support act that caught my imagination with a blistering set. I felt duty bound to recommend you make the effect to get so see them if you can (They are the opening act on the main stage on Friday, so easily missed, I would think.) - sort of Nirvana/Editors hybrid, with a touch of Ian Curtis in the front man, if such a thing can be imagined. Bands I tip for greatness usually end up languishing in utter obscurity, so this recommendation from me is probably the kiss of death, but I really do think these guys have got something. Have a great festival, one and all

    Cheers mate - not the end of the world I guess, but it is a shame. Kind of become a fixture in the three years I've been going

    Found out a couple of days ago, and am crushed to report, that I can no longer go to Bearded this year. With the best will in the world, the thought of tinkering with the Clashfinder in these circumstances, is more than my spirits can cope with. So please feel free to take it over - it can be edited by anyone and is quite straightforward once you get the hang of it. Whatever your clashes, I know you'll all have a great time. ....I'm now off to stare into the middle distance, reflecting on a year with no Bearded, and no Glastonbury...excuse me while I just wipe this little bit of grit from my eye.

    I've made the other minor updates, and added the stage, but I'll need some sort of day split and running order before going any further

    I'll stick with acid in Bournemouth if its all the same to you

    Bearded Theory 2018

    Er...Have you tried to open another tab in Bournemouth on Acid.... nope, that's all I've got So I tried googling it, but all I came up with is a 40ft prehistoric snake. Not entirely improbable as a Convoy Cabaret headliner, but I doubt it was what was meant either, so am none the wiser

    Thanks for the tip - unfortunately having the same problem with Opera. I'll probably handle this in the way I do all IT problems. Ignore it for a couple of days and hope it goes away
