    2020 headliners

    Only the fact that he apparently never plays his back catalogue in a manner that resembles a successful Pyramid slot?

    2020 headliners

    I think they should get an Other Stage headline slot. That feels the best home for them at the festival.

    Oh I see. Sorry I thought you meant her being booked was a conservative choice. Was a bit confused.

    They bumped her up with about two weeks notice until the festival.

    We thought this about the Rolling Stones though, and they turned up and were fantastic.
  6. Went to the Williams Green about 3 times and it was always full. Seems like it could do with being a bit bigger to me.

    The Streets

    Watched about half from just outside the tent. Was fun but left as it wasn't the same as being inside really. Was always going to be popular I guess, and they should have had an outdoor stage, but would probably have been more manageable had Prodigy played. How easy it was to switch after that happened, I don't know. Guess it might depend on certain promises given to artists etc.

    The Cure

    The Streets was very busy. I thought The Cure was pretty busy too and my mate said quite a few were at The Park for Rex Orange County.

    The Cure

    Watched half of The Streets but that was rammed we weren't inside the tent so came to watch the last 80 mins of this, came around the path at the back and seemed quite a lot there to be fair. Not Stones levels but more than a lot of the headliners I have seen.

    EPO bands

    Hang on... If someone gets in, then fair play and all that and I hope they have a good time, but to be fair I think some security need to stop some people. If none of the security tried to stop fake bands there could be about 400,000 in there as everyone would cotton on the fact you could just walk in. Whilst it adds to the fun that some get in, it needs to be a challenge to some degree or everyone would be there. I know a fair number of people who got in on other peoples tickets (and in one case the steward made it fairly clear that they knew) but this is obviously less of an issue as even if it isn't theirs it is accounted for. However, again, the fact that people can be turned away is what keeps touting down.

    Yeah but isn’t it just a list about different types of ‘ordinary’ people - a sort of rallying call? He’s not on a minimum wage job either. Not sure it’s a meant to be taken as autobiographical

    It’s dead stupid to attack people who promote the right ideas and sympathise with the working class just because they weren’t all born poor. Give me that over a self serving Tory any day. Also from the people locally who know and have followed them, they are genuine people who have faced their own demons, worked hard at it and done it the right way. Great set at The Park. Could have done with being a bit louder though.
  13. This is wrong as I know people who submitted them in February and I think, as per the advice above from the festival office, there are ways of transferring after.
  14. I think the main thing was the heat to be honest. Playing a final in Madrid in June in 30 degrees after 3 weeks off wasn’t going to make for the best spectacle.
  15. I read that’s Guardian article too but didn’t Marr say he was listening to Chernobyl news and then Wham came on? I think that was the origin. Morrissey is pretty abhorrent now and clearly had some dodgy views throughout but not sure that particular song is really a racist tirade in this case - Marr seems sound still anyway and hasn’t disowned it
  16. All on the 'personnel' tab here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_Easy_to_Find_(album)
  17. Yep. They should definitely release the smaller much stages earlier so people can discover them and then drop the big names later if necessary for contractual reasons.
  18. Just sounds like them being thick. Just point out it wasn’t a local ticket and should be fine. I think they just automatically flag things when people change their delivery address from a local to an address miles away from the catchment area. Won’t be an issue.
  19. To be fair I guess when they talk to the huge acts like Paul they might well offer a couple of different dates? It’s not exactly like Stormzy or someone where you’re trying to catch them as they’re ‘hot’. Sounds from all the info that they both ultimately decided next year makes more sense with his schedule and possibly the prestige of the anniversary.
  20. Think we had 5 paid, one in the pot
  21. They were on about Corbyn and his stance as leader. This just proves it to be honest - even now, with No Deal around the corner and the leadership backing the option it still wouldn't pass. So god knows why or how it would have before now.
  22. I don't think he's a saint or anything but a second referendum or revoke hasn't got a majority in the commons even with the threat of a No Deal just around the corner - I really don't see how championing it would have have worked prior to this.
  23. I think the real risk now is coming from the hardcore FBPE including The Independent Group lot who won't take any compromise. They're gambling on this meaning that May will come to the end of the road balk at No Deal, and offer a People's Vote/Revoke. However, I'm not sure that will happen. May clearly doesn't have an appetite for either of those and has a weakness for the ERG. The tactic of no compromise may work - but failing to consider a compromise is bringing No Deal closer.
  24. Love to see Blur in any slot but not sure this secret followed by headliner should become a thing really...

    Indeed. They were great again last night - can’t see how they won’t be one of the best gigs on the farm this summer.
