    A quick weird one about Marble Factory. It always used to be a different place entirely, but recently they changed it to the newest room at Motion. Ive seen the new room in when the whole venue is in full use and with full lighting and it’s very impressive, but was less so the other week when I was there. The old original Marble Factory is alright but little more than a room, so fingers crossed they bring all the flashing lights out for Jon H in the new warehouse. Think there’s a video of Groove Armada playing there last week which shows it off pretty well. Good to hear there’s a big Efests crew there, Ben et al and Zero. Definitely considering Jon, but at Massive Attack in Bristol the evening before.

    Sorry, should have clarified. The track with Rocky off his record, really enjoying revisiting the whole thing.

    She’s announced for Primavera. Hopefully this means new material and summer festivals. Love the track with ASAP and would love to have her back. West Holts headline maybe?

    2nd Announcement 2019 Predictions

    Seems a very strange “argument” to use your own personal depth of knowledge to judge their size. Massively mixed crowds. The Streets are very much indie disco material, the gigs were similar to the Roses gigs in the way quite a few of the people there were younger than even the reissues.

    so, Stormzy then...?

    Adidas have sponsored and backed him for years, going back to at least Know Me From, if not before

    They have ones in the summer as well by Harbourside where Bonobo, Manics and a few others have played so could possibly see them there.

    Went to Dimensions this year. Security is very tight, lots of undercover, you think you’ve made it past them and they pop out of nowhere, but as long as you take usual precautions but make sure you don’t sort yourself out until deep inside the festival, you’ll be fine. If you get caught, they will try and take all the money you have in your account, and say they’ll keep you if not. Lots of entrapment type situations as well. Id recommend staying as close to the festival as possible. Pula is lovely, but there’s two buses per hour for everyone going to the fest from Pula. The festival is very beholden to the weather which is massively unpredictable at that time of year, but has a trend of serious thunderstorms. The vast majority of the stages are made of tin, so if they get word there’s a thunderstorm within a certain radius, they all get shut down apart from one. i would also recommend the boat parties, which I enjoyed much more than expected. I went to Hessle. i enjoyed it, the weather and queues probably did affect it but I’d go again and just do things slightly differently.

    Can’t really see why the general public would be overly against it. Petitioners and Dark Fruits twitter probably would but in terms of the general public (which I realise does include the previous categories mentioned), it covers all bases.

    My bad, thought we had specific information he’d pulled Hyde Park.

    There’s information from two separate sources, as well as information he’s pulled out of Hyde Park.

    The point wasn’t about it being a strong trio though, it was about it being one for the history books which it will be regardless of who else headlines.

    Exactly, with the exception being Stormzy who has never played venues of that size, hence why it’s an anomaly and unique booking.

    He’s hardly a rare booking who never plays in the UK, given he’s done multiple indoor and outdoor shows in the UK, year after year as well as playing European festivals. He’s as close to a typical Glastonbury booking you can get.

    You weren’t talking about whether people would be looking at the set and saying they wish they were there, you were talking about it not being one for the history books, two separate things. Fact is this year will stand out as unique because of Stormzy. However great they are, The Cure and Paul McCartney are acts Glastonbury would usually book, and it would hardly raise controversy for the both of them to play. Having those two doesn’t make it a unique or historic year.
