    Next year Exams clash ?

    https://www.gov.uk/government/news/ofqual-launches-consultation-on-2021-exams-and-assessments See "changes to exam timetable". States that the outcome of the consultation will be published in August, so you'll have a decent idea if this is going to be a problem fairly soon...
  2. Aren't we at the wonderfully wooly "1m+ if you can't effectively manage 2m", or does that not apply to lecture halls?

    October ticket sale

    Delay of GCSE and a level exams may reduce the number of teachers and students planning to attend. Ofqual consultation out now as part of today's announcement.
  4. Ofqual also consulting as to whether GCSEs and A Levels have a later start in 2021 of on or around 7 June. Imagine that might impact on both teachers and students that might otherwise attend in 2021

    Dua Lipa

    Found it interesting from the Block 9 doc that they were involved in the creation of her arena stage show...

    Aren't they on the sonic Spotify playlist? Edit: I think I may have imagined that.

    I go back to the Brits performance whenever I need a lift, it's that good. It will be interesting to see how he can transform the more personal, intimate aspects of his catalogue to his live shows. If he can pull that off, then that'd definitely change my mind!

    As Gilgamesh thought, you're thinking of Kano! He was great in 2017

    I don't find Dave a particularly engaging performer. There's no real energy or dynamism, he just wanders about, lightly jabbing with one hand and very clearly and competently rapping. But worse than that there's a lack of stagecraft, and - for the lack of a better word - oomph to his shows (Alex at glasto type moments aside) And I say that as someone who really likes his music! He just doesn't have the force of personality of Stormzy, Skepta and the likes, for me.

    The run of end of a century, to the end, and this is a low... wow
  11. Ouch! It got noticeably busier once what felt like all of Kano's Park crowd (including a couple mates) arrived, but still...
  12. They were playing Ghost Town over the PA about 10 mins before BBK came on. Managed to walk to about 3 rows from the front with no bother. LCD was packed by comparison! We were just in front of the sound stage to the left and it felt busy...

    Same. Every time I watch it back it gives me chills. Absolutely incredible

    Very enjoyable set that I clearly haven't watched back previously as it's the one and only time I know of where I'm prominently and repeatedly on camera... Unbelievable he hasn't been back for his own set since!
  15. Brought back incredible memories, finally seeing the full set again. My favourite glasto (of 10) rounded off by the that set. Just amazing.
