🤣 Can't wait for 10 years time when we're making lists of our favourite 1975 albums instead of talking about the actual thread! On a serious note I do think they'd be a good fit for this, are they free on the dates?

Its just going to be a list of abbreviations.

Guess she’ll be nailed on for PS? 

Also, does anyone else think the “New Normal” thing will mean absolutely nothing, like the majority of last years hype machine?

So are they announcing the lineup at 17:00 or it will be a long talk show that will take hours or days to announce the lineup? Hope that doesn´t take so long as that rocket video 2 years ago.

can't wait until it's announced that the whole ''new normal'' thing has nothing to do with gender and all this discussion was a waste of time

I still believe it's about reggaeton. Equality should be the normal.

Part of me thinks it's going to be referring to the organisation rather than the acts they've chosen. I wonder if the  colours used for the announcement just now have anything to do with it, most likely not.

Just to clear things up in case anyone else missed my point completely (and then I'm done offtopic-ing here), the points I was tryng to get across:

1) gender (or race, etc) should NOT be a criteria - if nothing else because it's fundamentally sexist/racist 

2) equality of opportunity is not the same as equality of outcome - the former we should all be actively pursuing (and should be the normal), the latter is simply unfair

3) while the topic of gender inequality is definitely not to be ignored, having a 50/50 lineup does absolutely nothing to solve it

4) last but not least, good music is good music and does not in the slightest depend on whether the artist or the listener have a penis or not

Have a terrific festival(s) folk, regardless of which one and regardless of the ratios. 🤘🏿

P.s.: it is gonna be fun when the new normal is something else completely

Wake and listen just updated their prediction, adding Kendrick as strong rumor (probably wrong) and Kelly Uchis and Earl Sweatshirt as rumors.

 

They're probably off with Kendrick following today's news, but the other two seems spot on

For me Kendrick is also out, I´l replace him with Kid See Ghosts. Kali Uchis made a stellar album would love to see her, and Earl could be at Primavera easily,

The amount of people on this forum who can't wrap their heads around the fact that opportunities in the music/festival world are skewed unfairly towards males and the only way to fix this is for organisations like festivals to make a conscious shift in their policies until females are represented fairly enough in the industry that a 50/50 split is natural is dumbfounding.

But I guess that's not as important an issue as whether some white males posting on the eFestivals forums have a few bands they don't like as much on the lineup.

Honestly think I’ve had a stroke reading this today. 

The line up is coming, stop being weird. I’m sure there’ll be plenty of time for people to start shitting their pants when we actually know whos playing.

Interesting that he's on tomorrow and not Wednesday 

BBK's booking manager is also coming tomorrow at 12 to chat about his festival's new confirmations
