Doesn't look too bad. Really hoping that they put all the Big Top headliners on late again, after the Woods and Garden headliners as that will free up some pretty nasty looking clashes. Biggest concerns are Destroyer up against Hookworms and being stuck inside the Big Top for a lot of Sunday when I want to see a fair amount of stuff elsewhere. That AK/DK, Posies, Amen Dunes and Japanese Breakfast run is rather tasty!

Looks fine to me :)

Hardly any clashes so far for the stuff I want to see.

Interesting putting James Holden on late in the Big Top...I saw him on Saturday and I thought afterwards it would make a great late night set at EOTR, looks like somebody agrees with me!

Brilliant, thanks for doing that.

Has anyone ever seen John Cale. That's the one I can't decide on. Any good?

Saw him do the VU & Nico anniversary thing in Liverpool last year and it was pretty hopeless tbh. But it's John Cale innit, I'll be giving him another go in the hope that that was just an under prepared one off.

Hardly any bad clashes for me...Fat Whites vs Big Thief the only real troublesome one

That's really helpful, thanks mate

Apart from St Vincent vs Tweedy, the only bad clash for me is Richard Dawson vs Posies vs Liminanas

Definitely some bollocks clashes for me on here... St Vincent/Tweedy, Vampire Weekend/Oh Sees, Ezra Furman/Iceage. Also wish they hadn't put Soccer Mommy in the Tipi as well, not the best stage.

Placement for Titus Andronicus looks pretty odd there considering it's almost certainly going to be the acoustic show? Dunno why they've put that third down main rather than on the garden somewhere, got a feeling some people are gonna be disappointed by it.

Yeah, if I have a problem with this it's that some of the stage choices are odd - Gwenno is surely too big for Tipi, never mind fourth down. Are Shame that much bigger than Idles?

I have a few that I hope will shift and turn out OK eventually:

Lucy Dacus v This Is The Kit
St. Vincent v Jeff Tweedy
Gwenno v Sunflower Bean v Gruff Rhys
Vampire Weekend v Oh Sees

I'm afraid you'll need a shift of Joanna Newsom sized proportions for St Vincent/Jeff Tweedy and Vampire Weekend/Oh Sees not to directly clash.

Woods stage opener for the Thursday still to be announced according to the email sent out earlier.

Hoping for a big-ish name going by the past couple of years (Teleman and Moonlandingz).

To the tweeter, why wouldn't you clash Vampire Weekend and Oh Sees?

Two radically different styles - makes perfect sense to have them on at the same time.
