yeah of course! My issue with the cure is this indulgent 2hour + set which would suit their own show, but not a festival half full of casual fans imo! 

I think that the last time I saw them at Optimus Alive they played midnight until 3am! The set was a pretty good mix of Cure songs you know and Cure songs the fans know. That said, I did leave before the end

jeez 3 hours is crazy, I'm not sure I could even see my favourite bands for 3 hours 

edit- I saw bon iver in hammersmith last year and instead of a support band they played bon iver, bon iver in full so I guess that wasn't far from 3 hours after both sets, but there was a much needed interval !!

How bad must the competition be if they’re winning marketing awards...

Competition is easily getting the W this year. That award is for last year's nos alive edition

That's fine with me. It was best decade for music. They won't be around forever enjoy them while you still can.

My thoughts too. Still gutted I didn't get to see Jane's at Reading years back. Hopefully Perry's voice is fine.

After seeing him at All Points East, Nos Alive have missed a trick not booking Mac DeMarco - such a crowd pleaser. 

They missed a few from All Points East- Bring Me The Horizon on the Friday were outstanding

They were. I never really got in to them (liked a few songs here and there) but I have to say seeing them live they put on a great show and it was a great mix of songs for old and new fans.

Hey mates, just decided that this is gonna be my first year at NOS Alive. Do you have any idea about when do timetables get released? And do they usually have painful clashes? I'd be really pissed if they clash Robyn and The Cure, for example.

The card isnt full yet so expect the timetables to be released like 1-2 weeks before the festival

 

Yes they usually have painful clashes . For example last year they had Wolf Alice and Nine Inch Nails at the same time,  or  Portugal the Man and The National

the lineup is pretty much dealt with when it comes to attention drawing names, I suppose. sad

I think you're correct.  The complete lack of communication from the festival this year has been the worst thing for me.  It's as if they have an arrogance towards ticket buyers.

After watching some of this I'll be gutted if they clash. Very much hoping for Robyn and Hot Chip to play just after The Cure, what a night that would be!

Very good set, I couldn't go to Primavera this year so she is one the main reasons I'm buying NOS' ticket. And I think it's also her first time in Portugal. 😕

After taking a look at some of previous years clashfinders, they don't usually clash the main headliner of the day with any other of the top names. With that being said I expect her clashing with Weezer/Mogwai or just as you said playing between The Cure and Hot Chip closing the night.

I'm confident in next year's lineup. Hopefully it'll include The Black Keys, Foals, Tame Impala, The Strokes
