Squid tonight, then later in the year Manchester Psych fest, Alex Cameron, Black Midi, Little Simz, Girl Band, Fontaines DC and Kate Tempest.

Normally knock out 20+ gigs between September and December so looking forward to some more announcements. Got my eye on a few as well, really fancy going down to London for Ty's Melted set and Black Lips and Wand are dependent on if they sell out before I gets money.

Did you see Squid at Glastonbury? You're in for a treat if not, one of the highlights of the weekend for me!

I did! I was gutted them and Black Midi were billed so early as there was no chance I was gonna make them and accidentally wound up at them playing one after the other in the Crows Nest. Hoping to remember a little more this time round, although I remember Houseplants going off.

Yeah the 11am start was brutal, but after Houseplants i definitely left with more energy and enthusiasm than i entered with!

I'm still dead from Glasto so hoping they'll provide such energy again. Looking forward to going to a gig in the YES basement as well, I don't like the pink room as much as I'd like to.

Post glasto blues has killed me this year. Yeah i wasn't that keen on the pink room when i went, havent done a gig in the basement though. 

If i wasn't going Stevie Wonder tomorrow id be all over this. Haven't been this excited over a new band in a long time! Enjoy!

I like what they're trying to do with it, and the venue as a whole, it can just struggle with crowds a little at points. Now Wave are such good bookers though I end up there quite a lot ahah.

Fly to Portugal on Weds for eight days for Nos Alive (Chems, Cure, Smashing Pumpkins, Hot Chip, etc) then some beach time. Think this may be the main reason I've largely swerved the post-fest blues.

Want to pop into central London for gay pride tomorrow evening, but reckon it might be rammed (no pun intended).

Noisily next Thursday.

Unpacking and repacking at the same time takes the edge off of things!

Anyone else here going?

It's a beautiful little festival.

Yep, it falls on the same day as Cardiff half marathon. Cue one stressful morning being more stressful.

Newport Folk Festival for me, end of this month...much smaller festival, but similar to Glastonbury in that it has a history, always sells out before lineup is announced, is not a commercial festival. I'm ticketed for day one only at moment, but I always into day 2. Day one/Friday has a cracking lineup though, including 2 familiar names from the Friday of our Glastonbury this year, and anytime you get someone from the Grateful Dead you should consider yourself lucky...
