We got used to a completely unthinkable concept of social distancing in the space of 7 days, which shows how adaptable humans are.

have we?

I went to the post office yesterday. The people who cared the least about invading other people's safe distances were the w*nkers wearing masks.

Pretty sure he’s posted reliable stuff before.  Probably an imminent announcement

my apologies to @jr1312 - my tone was as it was because I'd confused him with another poster.

Do you think this festival will come back? Dunno how many more hard knocks APE can take.

They will probably have 1 or 2 more years agreed with the council, so doubt they would change the brand at this point.

I'd expect them to persist, given deep financial backing and the license with the council for the site.

If anything they might do better next year with less competition around, as presumably some festivals will sadly go under.

The aim is at the moment is that it will, they still had another year in contract with the council so would assume that this will just roll over so it becomes 2021 and 2022

There’ll be many more acts on the road next summer too. Let’s not forget that they had offers out for Nine Inch Nails and Arcade Fire - the former almost certain to be touring and the latter significantly more likely than they would have been this year. Unless the impact of the event cancellations absolutely obliterates AEG Live then I think it’ll be business as usual.

When it comes to taking stock AEG will look at the summer as a whole and balance things accordingly

I reckon AEG might cut it though as even though they are huge like the need to stabilise after such a disruptive summer.

Also not sure if anyone suggested this before but does anyone else think Thom was on his own day but they moved him knowing sales would be awful if it was announced with the coronavirus threat (at that point when he was announced it was starting to get big)

can't see why it wouldn't.

Besides, there'll be a surplus of bands to pick headliners & supports from next year too.

Wonder if any of the acts will end up doing their own shows later in the year. Was quite looking forward to that Thom Yorke set, and you'd think Tame Impala would still want to promote their new album with a show
