100% agree on this - was at Reading last year and the screens were incredible - huge and really good quality.

Would be awesome if Glasto stepped this aspect up for the 50th as they are well behind in this area

Recently rewatched Kenny's Coachella show and it really hit home how much further ahead other festivals are with the visuals.

Think BST use similar, the screens wrap around to the back and it looks very good. Sadly I just don't see this could fit in with the pyramid set up.

They could do it on the Other though. Especially considering the Other headliners have recently been the ones with the more demanding visual requirements. Could be a way of giving the Other stage something a bit extra.

They aren’t an exclusive. However there’s rumours now that a Glasgow summer sessions date is being finalised.

I think he meant Idles anyway but the Glasgow Summer Sessions gigs are in June this year, so if they do play Glasgow then it won't be as part of that.

Are they? That’s not good then. There’s definitely another UK date coming. (There’s evidence for this it’s in the r&l thread somewhere).

I think the consensus is it’s a Scotland date. I said summer sessions as it’s usually in August so a safe bet.

Can't imagine IDLES being an exclusive, you don't pay for exclusivity then shunt them away on the second stage when most of their crowd will bugger off midway through their set.

i also can't see IDLES wanting to be an exclusive. It seems to go against what they stand for

Different set of gigs. Rage will be doing the Bellahouston Park ones 14-16 August. There’s often crossover with Reading/Leeds.

Ah, I see they’re not being branded as Summer Sessions but I’m sure I read that there’s no gigs at Bellahouston this summer, which is why Green Day got moved to Glasgow Green.

When do people think this extra date would be announced? It would be perfect for me if it was Glasgow but dont want to risk getting tickets for other gigs by rolling the dice.

Will Leeds dah tickets likely sell out quickly?

depends, if people think they aren't going to announce anything else then they could go within a few weeks.... if there's a hint of another then some may hold out a while.

In relation to the bafflingly negative twitter responses, can a kind young person please explain to me the references to Dark Fruits and Fiat500.

i wish i didnt read the twitter posts its made me so angry! dark fruits seems to be some w*nky comedy twitter account 4 da kids?

Basic british white girls on Twitter that post about hangovers, boys, food, tango ice blasts, and generic life advice that for some reason gets thousands of retweets, usually adding an 'x' on the end for some sort of comedic value that is lost on the rest of the population/world. Usually all have the same picture in front of the exact same door as their profile picture.

I haven’t heard anything about that but it wouldn’t be a total surprise as Bellahouston got absolutely wrecked last year by the rain and mud (and of course Green Day has to cancel there a couple of years back).

But Green Day this year is weeks before there are supposed to be any gigs at Bellahouston. I figured that was just making extra use of the TRNSMT set up like they did with Bruno Mars in 2018.

Got it. Thanks.

Think I was just basing it off this post from @Mezhyp1 who is usually spot on for that sort of information. It seems like Guns N Roses and Post Malone were originally meant to be at Bellahouston too, as three gigs were moved from there to Glasgow Green according to this.

I was told Guns n Roses and Post Malone were 'Summer Sessions' this year, so I suspect that is it for Glasgow outdoor shows and Summer Session is just confined to Edinburgh, as Bellahouston being out of commission and there now being 6 outdoor shows inc Trnsmt at Glasgow Green

Ah I see, yeah he/she is usually bang on. Thanks for that.

 

Re.Bellahouston, I had a walk through there in December and it was still all fenced off. Total mud bath.

To add further context, Dark Fruits Twitter is typically the male equivalent to fiat 500 Twitter.
