All Points East Festival 2020

Recommended Posts

Do people generally just buy individual days for this?  We're in Newcastle and fancy the Friday but it's a long trip for a day.  Hoping the Saturday/Sunday are worthwhile so we can make more of an event out of it.

Cos it seems to be the case that the announcement & tickets for a show from another promoter that was due this week has been rescheduled to the end of January..

Is it a "Primavera-like" act? Because PS seems to have postponed their Line-Up release to the end of January, too.

Mostly day tickets. I'd say it being london, even if you dont fancy the other day you can find something else to do in town!

We're not London-based so tend to go for the full weekend.   Last year we did the first weekend and then came back for one night the 2nd weekend.  This year we stayed both weekends and did all 6 nights.

Put off a bit by the sound problems with The Strokes - truly like nothing I've ever come across before.  Whilst it never got that bad again, sound levels overall were seriously down on the year before and I suspect interference from the residents may have ruined this festival already.

This year I went to 4/6 days, last year I did 5/6. It can be a nice little weekend, it's a good way to start the festival season. I think if you buy tickets for different days all at once you get a discount too, so maybe you should wait til they've announced more.

There's a new instagram profile for Talking Heads. While this could very well mean nothing (an official insta profile for The Smiths materialised a few years back), Remain in Light turns 40 next year and I don't think David Byrne is touring as much as he was. If they were to reunite, this must be the place (sorry) for them, surely?

oh wow! :D

nerdy fact: Belew was supposedly once offered David Byrne's job in Talking Heads (Byrne didn't know) - as well as playing on the Remain In Light (and more) tours.

I hope they make the UK. Harrison is the only member I haven't 'collected' yet.

And because we'rte talking Belew and Talking Heads, it's obligatory for me to insert this here feckin' excellent toon...

Guns n Roses announcement has probably shot APE sales in the foot for the Kraftwerk day.

I had already bought tickets for the Kraftwerk day, wishing I had held off now.

Not sure it will be a massive influence to be fair. There were days last summer with BST running alongside Gigs at 2 stadiums. The target audience is completely different.

Yeah I think Mumfords were on the same day as Muse at London Stadium and BTS at Wembley.

Yeah. I've said this a few times but Euston was hell, as was the train back home afterwards.

Yeah I was going back to a mates in Bedford and it was awful. Train took twice as long as it should’ve as it had to stop at every station while they tried to get the doors closed again.
