They dont really want people just rocking up 5 mins before the gig though. They want people in early preferably, watching the support band, buying booze, merch etc. I dont really have a problem with it. I kinda like the Axl Rose approach to gigs.

That's their problem though, I've bought a ticket, should be my choice. You don't go to a restaurant and get told 'you can't have a dessert if you haven't finished all your vegetables'.

Hopefully anti-mask guy is just trolling, but a minor inconvenience of listening to an audiobook is surely better than, you know, potentially KILLING vulnerable people on the bus...?

I wasn't trolling. I'm not anti-mask. I will wear a mask on the bus, as I do on local buses. It was a gentle joke about a minor inconvenience this causes me.

Your post is a nasty spiteful misinterpretation.

Haha true. Is there that much variation though? Im going to Los Bitchos in February and Im fairly sure they'll be on between 9pm and 9-15pm 6 months ahead.

Industry wide problem. I feel the same about gigs. It seems to be nearly impossible to find out what time the band are on stage. Just fucking tell me so I can plan my evening, and work out getting transport to and from the show. I'm baffled as to why everybody seems to just accept it

Certainly for festivals it keeps the clicks going.

I doubt that the EotR team are sitting there holding off on announcing stagetimes in order to sneakily build a fortune from people clicking on their site.

They’ll be busy putting on the festival. If things are a bit different this year, and announcements are delayed while more important stuff - and no doubt unexpected last-minute hitches - are attended to, then we should all be grown up and accommodating enough to accept that.

We’d all love the stagetimes, and I’ve got my highlighter at the ready too. But it’s not that big a deal right now, and the organisers deserve a bit of slack right now rather than misplaced jaded cynicism, as if we’re all being hard done to here.

Great, thanks for the peptalk Grandad.

Don’t think people are being cynical generally.

It’s not a big job to put up the stage times is it though? Prob take one person an hour max.

In fact they’re welcome this year to just take a picture of the programme and bung that on twitter which would take minutes.

Not inconceivable we’ll get something today as obviously they’ll be working…

Obviously it's not a big deal to hit "Send", but I guess it depends on who needs to do what and if they're busy doing other stuff. Maybe they're manually putting inserts into the programme because the printed stagetimes are no longer accurate. 😄

I want the stagetimes out as much as anyone else, the sooner the better. I just don't see why people seem to be getting properly upset about it, as if Simon etc are taking the piss out of them.

Its perfectly reasonable to assume that there'll be changes up until the last minute. All of these bands, crew staff etc all still have restrictions to go through before they play. Getting gear into the country, get swabs, passenger locator forms, close contacts, flights change (as mine did for EOTR- 1 cancelled and 1 delayed) etc etc. 

That isn't the reason. By my count there's seven acts from outside the British Isles playing and at least two, maybe three are already over here. There's a chance they could all come over safely and ready to go but Alexis/Jason/Archie/Laetitia then test positive. They'll do what literally every other festival does - put out the stage times and then later if necessary let it be known that x has had to pull out but (hopefully) y is replacing them in the same slot.

I don't think people are "properly upset"

Just pointing out that with less than 3 days to go, they obviously have the programme in place and set times drawn up...so why not take a picture of the times that they can describe as provisional, post it on twitter and keep punters happy?

To be honest I'm not too fussed about the set times, any plans I make now will change when I'm there anyway.

I've marked my clashfinder with who I want to see and where there are clashes I'll go where the mood takes me - it's a festival, I can't see everybody I'd like to and rushing around trying to ruins the day.

So the peeps that chose to mooch around oblivious all weekend - super. Nothing unusual in that. A noble festival persuit.

Some of us would like the info 3 days beforehand however.. If thats not for you, ace. To suggest we're "properly upset" or that us asking somehow irks you - take a couple hours off.

Speak for yourself... I'm properly upset x 10. I DEMAND STAGE TIMES!
