Yeah that’s also true! Stereolab and Big Thief are my no.1 and no. 3 must sees respectively so I’m just going to stay at the front for them and miss BCNR as I’m sure I’ll catch them somewhere else.

Then hopefully see as much of CSH as possible - I thought someone said here that CSH and Stereolab weren’t clashing? Maybe try and see some of Four Tet after but ultimately get in a good position for The Comet is Coming which could well be the set of the weekend in that slot! 

I messaged GM and they confirmed Stereolab and Car Seat Headrest aren't clashing

Yep, Willie Healey on the Walled Garden sounds half decent too. Same with mid-afternoon Friday, going to be busy.

Who are people seeing Sunday night?

 Nilüfer Yanya has great tracks and keen to spend one night at Walled Garden.

I love Father JM but seen him twice and his new album/show isn't his best, feel like seeing him at Glastonbury 2017 was his prime.

Idles in a packed tent could be a good time

 

Nilüfer for me. My number one must see.

Never been into FJM and I saw Idles at G and have no real urge to see them again.

They’ve disappeared from GM’s website and from the official playlist. No announcement yet though.

I messaged them on facebook about BSS, and they said there'll be an announcement at the end of this week about it. 

On a more positive note... the new Black Country New Road track is *brilliant*.

Looking forward to Bess Atwell, Bodega and Amadou & Mariam. Do the acts get uncomfortably busy on the Thursday?

It was definitely very busy for public service broadcasting last year but it won’t be nearly as bad now they’ve opened up the Walled Garden on Thursday. There will be lots of people at Pictish Trail so A&M won’t be rammed.

Good news. I can't be doing with busy crowds these days!

It's only the last act it's really busy for, and if you get near the front for the act before it's usually OK, it's the back of tent that can get rammed

And immediately GM confirm Fat White Family as replacement (also Adwaith for Stevens)

To be fair to them they were never going to get someone of the same calibre at this late notice but that's a bit ho-hum for me.

Fat White Family seem to be really divisive whenever I hear them mentioned. I’ve not listened before - where should I start? 

Gutted about BSS. Hope they get well/come back soon!

I'd suggest starting with the new album, Serf's Up. Their set will be mostly that album and it was a bit of a change up for them. A big improvement in my opinion.

BSS were a big draw for me and I've never actually listened to FWF. Guess I'll need to change that, but still, bit of a disappointment.

A friend told me he saw FWF a few years ago, at some small venue. Apparently the lead jumped into the crowd and started masturbating. Are they really like that?
