its more the crowd than anything else, the audience is very indie. I bet they will be 3rd down, last two years a much heavier act has been 3rd down so it would make sense to continue this. Surely with Blossoms’ special guest status they won’t be moving 2 below the kooks, doesn’t really make sense as they are like the kooks’ guest?

 

Blossoms also happen to be supporting the Kooks in Europe this year if that’s anything to do with it

also fair to remember that the week prior to community, blossoms are playing a headline gig at a stadium in there hometown, which they sold out in an hour. Not saying don broco aren't big (mainly cos idk who they are, not on my radar), but that blossoms aren't as small as people reckon sometimes.

 

Having said that, courteeners can play old trafford or heaton park, and then play down south to a piss poor crowd/ so might be similar for blossoms

Blossoms don’t have as dramatic a divide as Courteeners i’d say, Blossoms were great at APE last year I thought and it seemed like the crowd was into them

the fact that blossoms were second on the main stage at APE and pulled a good crowd should be enough to cement their place second on the bill for community right? arguably a smaller festival too

Maybe *maybe* you will be right about KOL ?

I think KoL or whoever will happen, why would they have done it on a Sunday and not a Saturday like the first year was when they didn’t have other festivals. Maybe the sunday sold better as a counter argument, i’d say both of the lineups were pretty equal in strength?

Crazy how early it ends, not even dark at 9pm was it like that the last two years - can't see FR staying at Finsbury Park much longer in all honesty. Bar prices were standard london festival can't remember queues being too bad a large amount of the crowd is under 18 so that helps a lot. I walked to another station somewhere near Manor House last time, I think it was Alexandra Palace and so didn't queue there. They seem to have the crowd pretty under control obviously Manor House will be packed but not sure why there is that note at Finsbury Park saying it will be very busy as its a long walk from the exit and i'm pretty sure it was shut last year. Probably will be heading there unless we get out really quickly (then will do Manor House) as i'm going to kings cross.

yeah mate decent im heading to kings cross too! but yeah inint 9.30 is such an early curfew but its because of all the locals complaining, so doubt FR will stay much longer either - but wireless and community do seem pretty popular festivals anyways so im sure theyll move them if they need to and a better park comes up

9.30 is just ridiculous, even BST is later than that and its got all the posh people around Hyde Park. Got out nice and quick though and home around 11 anyway so thats alright I guess but it wasn't even dark for the end of the headline set. I think two of the wireless days are later by 30 mins but still its such as joke vs Victoria Park. No fireworks either complete joke really.
