Either the lineup is the same or there’s gonna be big changes if they’re withholding it this long

Could be true, they might leave it until say monday just to get all of the potential drop outs sorted

Squid?!?!? Best act on the line-up by a margin. They were immense at Latitude. If you haven't listened to Bright Green Field your in for a treat. There's not many bands making music like Squid right now, they're something pretty special.

What’s boardmasters actually like

Are there loads of parties in pubs/ enclosed places etc too? Seems bizarre so many seem to have caught it there compared to other festivals. It can’t just be the demographics. 

Oh to be fair there actually are, there was boat parties and club nights on the Thursday and loads of tents, i guess it spread there and then was contagious by the saturday/sunday so because of the long length it would be spreading then spreading again. Also it was seriously young, same as R&L i would say 80% under 20 so loads of people had no jab or just the one. Also younger demographic = more likely to be an idiot and fake tests i guess

Aye, if many are there all week on an extended hol, in bars and stuff all week, it will spread like hell. There was similar outbreak in a beachside Party Town near me https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/01/us/provincetown-outbreak-residents-response/index.html . Loads caught it. Again rammed bars on a big holiday weekend. Vax rates are high in Massachusetts and even that didnt stop it.

 

Only real worry for R&L is whether it can be passed in crowds outside, which luckily doesn't seem to be to bad judging by Lollapalooza

If I'm lucky enough for Squid to be at Leeds on the Friday (please please please) I'd forgo any else that day to go and see them. Absolutely immense set at Latitude and genuinely one of the best live bands I've ever seen. Honestly the best act on that lineup the whole weekend, what an addition!

edit: Looks like I'm out of luck. I beg anyone who gets the chance to go catch their set, you won't regret it
