Doves vs IDLES?

Recommended Posts

For me the worse clash of the weekend but I had decided to see Doves. 

However, I’ve just seen their Glastonbury set and now I don’t know. Very passionate and exciting performance. Quite a unique band. 

What to do?

Massive fan of both bands but Doves slightly outweigh it for me, been waiting a long time for this return.

Anyone have an idea on times and if there will be any overlap?

It's a really tough one for me, so I'm just giving the choice to my nephew, who I reckon will go with IDLES. If he can make the choice, then I don't give a fuck who it is.

Doves for me... going to Greenman so may catch idles there (although it looks as if they’ll clash with Father John Misty so maybe not).

I was thinking about Fleetmac Wood too....but will probably end up at Doves with the majority of our group

I'm thinking of sacking off Doves and my mates to see Idles. I missed them at Glastonbury. I did see them at Bestival last year but the crowd wasn't really getting them so it wasn't the best atmosphere.

No set times but the stage and day splits are up with the running order.

Idles.  So incendiary live. 

Seen them about 6 or 7 times now from sweatbox Student Union venues to the Glastonbury "home comings".

My only fear is if too many Idlescurious folk don't get on the rollercoaster during the KC set .  They feed off the crowd massively. 

Doves are decent but Idles live are level ten insanity.

Seen Idles twice in one day at Glasto. They are not a patch on Doves.

The Doves set at Bearded Theory this year seemed very pedestrian.

The band are parked with the rest of my eighties and nineties Mancunian nostalgia.

Each to their own.

Doves.  Always Doves.  They're the main reason I'm going!

I listened to the Doves for half an hour on my journey home this morning. I listened to Idles on the way to work tonight...

IDLES win! Even looking at pictures of the two bands, Idles look like they're having more fun and it's more upbeat.

I’ve listened to a couple of Doves albums in preparation.....I used to be a fan but they are pretty dated I’m afraid

I had a listen to Bon Iver this morning and didn't like what I was hearing so put my Kendal playlist on. Doves came on first... Skipped it, Mother came on by Idles... I sang along. Its the band that gets you grooving you want. And they'll be an experience. As @Jay Pee says, they need a good crowd to get in the mood tho, I didn't love the Bestival set as the crowd really didn't get them. That and it was 33c and no one had any energy.

IDLES

even though seen them 4 times and never seen Doves

they mean something, they have something relevant to say, they are that good

and Bobo dicking around in his pants is unmissable

You ain't wrong Brother.

Watching them on the Park Stage the other week was exhilarating.

Watching them on iPlayer the other day was fuckin hilarious
