Couple of bands now in the last few days. Which is why releasing the stage times earlier might not make sense. We may even see a few cancellations over the weekend. 

Yep, presume it'll be the same regs for them as for us, i.e negative LFT in the 48 hours prior to arrival. If some of them aren't arriving to play until Sunday, they might not drop out till Sat.

Sure, but saying "look at the programme" makes even less sense given that it was likely printed over a week ago..

But as the programmes will all be (very slightly) wrong, I don't see any distinction with set times posted online being very slightly wrong too.

Experience of other festivals is very few cancellations.

Weren’t any at all at APE day i went to on Monday.

There was AFAIK one at Green Man (Aoife Nessa Frances, who before anyone runs with this is currently touring) and it's unclear whether that was actually Covid-related. Thing here is because this board has been so broadly negative over the last few months people have got it into their head that loads of acts are obviously going to pull out, which hasn't really been the case anywhere.

In any case, whatever the reason for not releasing times in advance (which Green Man do for Thursdays if not the rest of the week, presumably so you know what time to get there) it's not because of potential pullouts or no festival/event would be doing it. There have always been late withdrawls from festival bills for illness or travel reasons.

I enjoy the line about US bands being pencilled in to come back for 2022. Let's have Big Thief finally doing that headline set please.

Are people just looking for a whinge? Yeah stage times would be nice but we kinda know when acts are playing. Hardly like they're saying "the festival might be cancelled but turn up anyway and see". Can fine tune the gigs when we're there if needs be. They'll be on the board for all to see.

It takes a minute to post a picture of the times from the programme.

It’s also expected practice. I go to a lot if festivals and even in covid times they've always shared the set times.

It’s a totally valid complaint.

Yes, and the Clashfinder will have been tweaked to fit ASAP. Amazed at how many people don’t use it.

What's the big downside of not having them until tomorrow?
