    Predictions for 2018

    it was tiered and it's the closest they've got to a real cinema. In fact, being honest, it WAS a real cinema.

    Predictions for 2018

    Going from past years, it usually sells out about a month or so before kick-off. They do issue warnings as numbers run down.

    Predictions for 2018

    The return of Frontier Ruckus. I think. Maybe. You never know.

    Field space

    Hence the water shortages by day 3.

    Predictions for 2018

    Strong case for it: for the first time, I now feel compelled to come down on the Thursday.

    Lucius, Matthew Ryan, Wooden Shjips.

    Predictions for 2018

    Nothing wrong with them as headliners two to three years ago, just a touch of the been-there-done-that syndrome, I think.

    Cabs or general public transport from/to Festival site

    I guess it depends if you want to catch or miss the late sessions, which don't get announced till pretty much the last minute. You'd be missing the special ambience of the 3.00 am collapse into the tent routine, and the 7.00 am driving rain wake up call. Though of course, as we know, it never rains at EOTR.

    Predictions for 2018

    Just announced: "The cat is nearly outta the bag! We'll be revealing our secrets at 9am tomorrow. Set your alarms." Not reading too much into the above, but my tips are now: Cat Power The Outta Sites The Bags (reformed) Revealer Secrets Tomorrow (reformed) The Alarm Several random Bella Union acts. Needless to say, my alarm is always set.

    Green Man is good at first glance, then it looks perhaps a little unadventurous.

    End of the Road Merch

    Normally, one would say rain.

    Predictions for 2018

    Jane Weaver played two years ago, I recall, and haven't Los Campesinos been on before

    Predictions for 2018

    Sadly, Richmond Fontaine have called it a day, but Delines tracks are in the pipeline. Also, my tent should be dry by September, which is good.

    Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever John Moreland Ryley Walker Courtney Marie Andrews Car Seat Headrest (on the strength of the last ten minutes I heard) Principal disappointments: Mega Bog - vague ideas do not a song make FJM - quite satisfied I didn't enjoy this, since I've found his personality more than quite resistible in all its guises over the years Lucinda - I'm sure she'll never ever pick such a crap setlist again Julie Byrne - for reasons previously stated Bill Callahan - for coming on and playing after I'd become too cold and wet to stay RBCF - for coming on and playing a secret slot after I'd become too cold and wet to stay As quite often happens, too many choices, a fair amount of bum picks.
