I counted number of likes on announcements pictures on their FB page,  there is always Croatian + English one. I didn't count event posts because number of people joined in event it is constantly changing.

It gives the perspective of what people want the most and why Suede are headliners here. This year the average attenders age is going to be quite high i think :D 

The Cure 9.4K, Garbage 3.1k, Suede 2.8k, Foals 2.5k, LP 1.5k, The Hives 1.3k, Kurt Vile 1k, Frank Turner 500, Peter, Bjorn &John 370, Sofi Tukker 350, Skindred 250, Zeal & Ardor 106.

Yes, thats all very reasonable and true for our market. Foals are a way way smaller band here than both Garbage and Suede. Kurt Vile might be a big name in the western world, but in both Ljubljana and Zagreb, he is a club act worth 400 tickets.

2019:

The Cure 9.4K, Garbage 3.1k, Suede 2.8k, Foals 2.5k, LP 1.5k, The Hives 1.3k, Kurt Vile 1k, Frank Turner 500, Peter, Bjorn &John 370, Sofi Tukker 350, Skindred 250, Zeal & Ardor 106.

Just out of curiosity, 2018 numbers to compare:

Nick Cave 8.7K, Alice in Chains 6.1K, QOTSA 4.9K, Interpol 3.5K, David Bryne 3.4K, St. Vincent 2.3K, Portugal. The man 2.1K, The Kills 900...

Hah, this year the numbers are obviously lower except Cure  .. makes me wonder how tickets are going?Or maybe people will like this posts in that incoming 4 months when all the promotion will go out and this is not relevant

Edit: Sorry for all the posts, same as Gregory i still didn't accept Suede as headliners, not even being announced as one 😏

Agree, crazy what did they squeezed in that arena, next level production. Not sure if they will have the same at festivals (if they even do any festivals except RW after all).

Hope for Sam Fender tbc here or something similar.

Sam Fender would be nice! Also Ten Tonnes or Yonaka would be a great addition for me. 

Though still hoping for at least one slightly bigger name as 2nd or 3rd down on main stage.

Did you mean that Noel might be announced? Or simply that there will be bands announced from now on that no one has ever heard about ? 😉

Anyone knows if they are as good as Sumski, the picture is promising. 

284 fans on fb, less than our favorites. These are the bands we want and the festival needs. 

Long life to EETB. 

Edit: great pic with prsut and malvazija ❤️

Hello all! I've almost 99% decided to go to the festival this year. Also planning to visit Croatia a few days before the festival. Can anyone recommend a nice coast town on driving distance from Zagreb?

I recommend Istria (Rabac, Porec, Rovinij) or Krk Island, I really love it and it is 2hrs driving from Zagreb (Krk city is the most beautiful imo).

I’d do Dalmatia over Istria. Zadar, Split then Island of Hvar. But depends what you want.l (and how much time you have)

Rabac is nice, quite a family friendly place though. Skip Porec, it’s been ruined by tourism. Rovinj is stunning but again a quiet little place.

Zadar and Split are bigger coastal towns with a lot of history. Hvar’s a stunning island frequented by the yachting brigade Some decent bars. 

If you want a heavy party place Pag islands probably your best bet....

Thanks😊 Seems like a lot to choose from. I don't mind the quiet places actually so will check out the towns you suggested.

They're most likely a festival exclusive.

(Edit: which would explain Werchter's rather underwhelming undercard / shortened Thursday as it seems.)

Be very careful about comparing these numbers. Facebook algorithms are pretty little bastards and a lot plays into how and to whom the posts are going to show, for instance if you past few posts had low reaction rates, your next posts will not perform as well as they would if your past posts didn't flop, etc.. Paid promotions could mess up with its information value as well. The time element is also important to consider as the festival's fan base (in terms of followers) would have likely grown over the year, thus new posts are more likely to be shown to more people, hence more likes.

All in all, we can conclude that people are a lot more into The Cure than into Kurt Vile, but we can't directly tell whether people were more excited for Nick Cave or The Cure. And it tells us nothing about the ticket sales. But thanks for the numbers anyway!

Some fake hope for a better Monday😀

To keep the debate alive.

Any chance one of Sofi Tukker and Frank Turner not being Word stage headliners? Frank was offical announced as one I think, but we are only guessing Sofi? 

Third headliner was a local one last few years, so i'm expecting the same and that is what they meant...

Here's the stages I think they have officially announced (or not announced) acts to be playing on in website order:

  • The Cure (Main Stage)
  • Foals (Main Stage)
  • Suede (Main Stage)
  • Garbage (Main Stage)
  • LP (Main Stage)
  • The Hives
  • Kurt Vile & The Violators (Main Stage)
  • Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls
  • Sofi Tukker 
  • Peter Bjorn and John (Hidden Stage)
  • Skindred 
  • Zeal & Ardor (Hidden Stage)

I guess it's possible Skindred could be a Hidden Stage headliner, and Sofi or Frank are 3rd down on Main. I think it's their poor English / deliberation deceptive self, but if they really will "announce headliners of second stage", best case scenario we could be looking at this;

  Main  
Foals The Cure Suede
LP Garbage The Hives
Kurt Vile & The Violators Frank Turner  Sofi Tukker
     
  World Music Stage  
TBC TBC TBC
     
  Hidden Stage  
Skindred Zeal & Ardor Peter Bjorn & John

I don't think Frank would play 3rd down again though, especially as he's headlining arenas in the UK right now. Sofi have a 20m viewed song. I'd like to be wrong.

So I keep a spreadsheet #nerd of where the bands are playing, days etc, and I thought I had this right, but I've just looked and can't see LP or Garbage down as Main Stage at all now. I don't know if they edited the pages or what but now there is a lot of mention of playing the 'INmusic stage' or 'Jarun stage'.

Could "na jarunsku pozornicu / the Jarun stage" actually be The World Stage re-named as the Jarun Stage? The Hives and LP are down as playing on it.  "LP will take over the Jarun stage" etc. 'The World Stage' hasn't been mentioned once so far this year. Maybe a Croatian can confirm how it reads in native language. 

INmusic detectives assemble.
