Also if Mama Meredith is supporting Bjork then that's going to be a great end to the festival. 

Yeah I reckon she is. Jane Weaver > Anna Meredith > Bjork seems like a run they'd. Reckon there's still a slot waiting to be filled before Groove Armada though.

So a band with four men and one woman would he considered a female act?

Fair enough though, there was another act I missed in the shape of LP. 

Weren't you asking about ethnicity?

But yeah either way I would say its about representation init, not necessarily X characteristic being the prevailing thing in that band. Normally when those redacted lineup posters are made to show female represntation they'd keep, say, Wolf Alice in even though that band was 75% male (not the best example because Ellie is the lead there but I can't think of a better one off the top of my head). 

Never very clear cut though is it.

Was making a comparison.

Metronomy (one non white person) couldn’t be seen as meaningfully improving the ethnic diversity of a festival in the same way as LCD Soundsystem (one female) wouldn’t on gender.

Fair enough but I respecfully disagree.

So they've announced a new area which sounds very cool, it's called the Origins Fire Garden.
 

"New for 2022, Origins is a late night fire garden soundtracked by DJs exploring the origins of modern electronic music. Standby for news on each evening’s curators and the very special guests that will soundtrack an extraordinary new experience area at bluedot 2022."

So who do we reckon for the Orbit stage headliners? Spiritualized definitely seem like one.

Hoping KLO and Squarepusher aren't against Mogwai though; would much rather they be post-headliner acts

Reckon there's one to be announced looking at it. A small announcement in the summer led by an orbit headliner?

Jeez..... £10.25 booking fee PER TICKET.
 
It's just cost us £32.75 IN FEES for 3 tickets + parking. I dont begrudge A fee (well I do a little) but that's daylight robbery AND then to charge nearly £5 to send too, on top😠😠😠

Really happen they have got Metronomy (personal fav) and Groove Armada (not seen before), plus a few regular acts I enjoy seeing (Henge, Stealing Sheep, Radiophonic workshop, Hannah Peel etc).... need to check out some of the other names I'm not familar with but happy with this lineup..

My other festival is bearded theory who have an awesome lineup this year!! so happy bunny here 🙂

Spiritualized vs Groove Armada is a tough choice. On one hand, SPZD are one of my favourite bands and I always get emotional seeing them, on the other hand its a friday night and my friends will probably be seeing GA, so like do i really want to be crying when I could be partying instead??

I would recommend Anna Meredith. Such a talented queen, and her shows are really fun

Ten years away from efestivals. As I've got a ticket for Bluedot (great line-up and on my doorstep) I thought I'd pop back and see what's going on here. Looks a bit angsty on first impressions. 😕 Hopefully that is just a blip.

Hi everyone 👋
