    Bearded Theory 2018

    I'm with @Gnomicide .Being within hearing range of the magic teapot bongo crew was a definite irritant through the night. Better toilet arrangements at main stage would be a worthwhile change. Otherwise a great weekend. Idles won me over and it was fun to see Crazyhead for first time in a long long time. Not a punky ska fan but there was tons of choice on the music front. Big confetti singalongs with Rev and Jimy Cliff topped and tailed things nicely. Hardly queued for a pint all weekend and the food choices were sound. Think we got away with the weather a bit. Will be back next year for more of the same.

    Indietracks 2018

    Its a great festival. Three stages, friendly people working there and attending, decent beers and handful of food places. Seems like a lot of the bands who are on hang around to watch/support others too. Alfeton definitely nearest station but Derby not a million miles away. Friday can feel a bit like the warm up for the main event but I think Lovely Eggs will change that this time. Looking forward to catching them again.

    Seen the Membranes with choir a couple of times, definitely worth checking out.

    ooh ta, hadn't spotted that. Much earlier than expected then. Its a strong lineup whoever. You can quote me on that when I'm moaning later!

    Groan!...although thinking along similar lines I did wonder if "young" was a nod to Young Fathers. No idea if they are considered headliner size. As my Public Service Broadcasting guess looks gone I'll switch my bet to Franz Ferdinand. In the middle of a big tour, definitely headline material and playing in Belfast the day after.

    Public Service Broadcasting? Playing the 6 music festival that weekend but not sure which day. Not dead keen on all the records but fun live. Are they big enough?

    Mixed feelings on that. Bit excited about hearing who is on Friday night but also no announcement will help me wait til payday to get my tickets. The last couple of friday headliners aren't really my thing so curious about who it will be. JAMC were great at End of the Road so will be a good build up to whoever

    Hi does anyone know if it’s ok to pitch a tent next to a caravan? Never been in camper van/caravan bit so wasn’t sure. Friends are taking their van down so was considering pitching alongside to claim a cuppa in a morning ☕️ I know some festivals are fine with that but I don’t want to irritate anyone if there’s not enough space/it’s not allowed.

    Have a good one anyone else who is heading down to this tomorrow Definitely a few less bands on this year but still looks fun and a bargain. Looking forward to it.

    Does anyone have a realistic sense of when this might sell out? Need to get organised but in middle of moving house so brains not fully focussed on next year.

    2017 - How was it for you?

    Excellent for me. First one since 2014 and it seemed very familiar but with a couple of improvements too. Echo the thanks for organisers, toilet crew and litterpickers etc. Jobs not made any easier on sunday. Musicwise i enjoyed seeing Ty Segall, Slowcoaches, Spook School, Car Seat Headrest and Omni for the first time. Also the chance to see Brix, Moonlandingz and the Jesus and MaryChain again. Wouldn't buy lemon twigs or king khan records but enjoyed both in a festival setting. I tried (a little bit) but still don't get why Mac De Marco is a headline act anywhere but he seemed to draw a decent crowd. Will definitely be back.

    Hmmm. Cuurrently Car seat headrest Shame Slowcoaches Spook School Moonlandingz Nadine Shah Omni Perfume Genius Ty Segall Girl Ray More research needed to subject to change...

    Y Not Festival 2017

    All good points but I hope they scale things back a bit next year. The reason we didn't get tickets this time was partly due to the rapid expansion and disorganisation last year. Their website used to talk about "steady organic growth". Maybe they can retrieve things by going back to that.
