Bit of a mammoth post, apologies. Spent the past half hour or so looking at previous announcements to see what days/months are most common, and just generally what patterns there are. Also looked

The guy battered his wife, denied it until video evidence surfaced, and then when given an opportunity to make a statement made it all about him and how he was in a good place rather than admitting gu

The year is 2038. We've been back at Reading for several years now. The Wombats have just finished their set, 3rd from the top of main stage on their 20th consecutive year at Reading Festival. Next up

Is anyone gonna go to loads more gigs /festivals next year to make up for this year or is it just me? 

I’ve got loads of gigs/festivals that have been bumped to next year so I’ve a choice, either have a very cheap year of gig going as it’s all already paid for or spending the same on gig tickets in 2021 as I normally do but go to twice as much. Haha.

Personally no. Many of us have been to multiple gigs and festivals year on year so one year out isn't a big deal.

Money is also difficult with job saturation so while I will attend events and enjoy seeing life music, it's not life defining.

the new album is fantastic imo, can understand some of the criticism it is getting although the main point i'm seeing is that there is too much filler, The End and Streaming are the only two tracks i would label as filler and every other song on the album is uniquely brilliant in its own way.. would even go as far to say this is the best album i've heard in a VERY long time. Disappointed i won't be seeing them in August like planned because i'm so excited to see these songs live especially Shiny Collarbone and What Should I Say (if they perform them live) so i would be fully on board to have them back again at R&L 

Sorry if I've gone back a few topics, but came on here to see what people thought of the new album due its devided reviews.

Personally, I really like it - I would say you can tell it's been written whilst on tour the last couple years, hence "notes" and the mixeup of genres was confusing at first, more like a mixtape but I'm getting used to that now 

They've said after this tour they'll go on a hiatus, so possibly Glasto 2022 before disappearing 

Even though I do like Notes and get the concept is supposed to be a mashup of ideas, I do hope album no. 5 has a more focused sound/ through line like the last 3, proved that sound could be anything now though

What do others think of it?

Blur

Travis Scott

Biffy/Foals

Absolute belter! tbh I'm quite pleased that Foals didn't play Wilderness this summer because that still keeps them in line to be a headliner at Reading, I do feel like they were quite unlucky with there festival bookings this summer especially missing out on Glastonbury and Reading but there now extremely relevant as there a Brit award winning band which turned some heads I'm sure and the last time they headlined a festival in the UK would've been truck in 2019 and there Glastonbury set was broadcasted everywhere. So I think there really likely to co-head next year or even headline outright on the Friday they've got an excellent setlist.

The survey that almost definitely means nothing, but also almost definitely contains all of 2021's headliners.

But I think Blur is just such a curveball we cannot ignore it, clutching at straws maybe but we can all hope 😂😂

I’m going to try, but considering I work Fridays and Saturdays it’s hard to find any that I can get too, i mean London is close but it’s still a trek for a Sunday or a weekday night

I would but work ain’t letting me have any back, I’m off this weekend and next and they can’t cancel that coz otherwise everyone will have stuff left over at the end of the year. Booked MCR and fest for next year as well so who knows how much I’ll have

Would Bloc Party really get booked on the main stage? I love them but i don't think they really are that big for reading goers in general vs like landfill indie bands etc. they got two door and capaldi in that slot this year, surely should just rollover one of them as they are both better bookings for the audience and strong gets for a 3rd down

edit: also why the fuck is giggs on the 1xtra stage lol

Bloc Party haven’t been booked since 2009 and I can’t see them returning. It’s an odd one because they are still big enough to play third down, I think, and with the bookings of The Wombats and The Kooks is those kind of slots in recent years, it’d make sense.

But they’d more likely get mentioned bands back or the Vaccines
