Parklife hasn’t sold out has it?

And TRNSMT has only sold out the one day, one or two of those will probably struggle. BST has sold out more days than that I believe.

Nope but I reckon they have probably shifted more tickets. Parklife will definitely have high attendance if not sell out soon.

Parklife have a 'handful' of weekend tickets left according to their twitter... I really need to decide for certain about going

Ah okay fair enough. Parklife is seriously getting some “insane growth”, as the Rhino Dude would label it. It’s Leeds’ closest competitor now and it’s been kicking it’s arse for a few years.

You get closer to being 5 years old by the day.

Obviously. That's how ageing works.

Only six more years until that 11 Plus.

Anybody listened to High Tyde's new album?

Saw them in Leeds last night and they were ok. Only played a 45 minute set which was a bit disappointing because they have plenty of material.

You can say that again.

But for a real response to Alfie's post: I think people might be ambitious to believe that the next announcement will be before the end of the month but I can't see it being later than the middle of next month. It was six weeks between day splits and stage splits posters last year, but there were many more acts last year and they would also have a lot less reason to worry about sales. This time they'll be losing customers to other festivals by the day and really can't afford to wait to try and bring them back on board - not to be too melodramatic but this could really be a catastrophic year for R+L (L in particular).

Whether it's salvageable is subjective though, obviously. If it's all about the headliners and subs then I think it's time to look elsewhere. If you spend most of the time seeing smaller bands across the stages and a headliner is a bonus (or you already like the headliners) then it's definitely gonna get a lot better.

Surprising that Dua Lipa is the only exclusive, have we ever had one exclusive at this point?

Tbf by the time the festival comes around the majority of acts that were originally billed as exclusives end up playing other festivals, so it doesn't really mean much.

En mass, seem far too impatient now. We’ve just had an announcement and people are saying ‘When’s the next one? I want another announement’ etc. You’ve just bloody had one. Chill and it’ll come when it comes. We waited until February for the first one, a few more weeks to wait again isn’t going to be too unbearable.

I don't think people would be this keen if the announcement was actually good.

Don’t think they’d go down well at R&L at all. I’d probably guess in the pit / lockup tent though.

New Turnstile album is class. I've been listening to it all week and it's just a whole lot of fun. Easily their best work. Would like to see them on the Kendrick day but they're playing Outbreak in June so it's highly unlikely. Just wanted to mention how sick this album was :P

Excellent. I’m looking forward to listening to it later on today. Great band. I’m really into the Pianos Become The Teeth album at the moment.

The new Carpenter Brut album is really good too but I doubt we'll get him back again as he played last year and is doing Download this year

I think Post Malone will be a booking like Liam Gallagher, as in at the time of announcement we wonder if he should really be playing tha high but by the time August comes he will fit the slot just fine.

Dudey rhinos newest video is the most cringiest thing ever. I think he's still living in a 14 year olds mind.

 

If you don’t like his videos, don’t watch them! He has an audience that watches (and presumably enjoys) his content and if he enjoys making videos then nobody should have a problem with that. You’re not being forced to watch them.

Tbf had he not been billed as an exclusive to Wireless then I'd probably have been predicting him as a sub, or at least NME headline. He'd have been very strong for 4th main if that's where he was originally meant to play.

Aye I think the only chat about him moving down places is that we know he was initially 4th down. The complaints about him being sub is how this guy with terminally boring and weak songs is as big as he is, and how we as a species have enabled this.
