Look, I like to plan as much as the next man, but Christ, get some perspective. They're made a decision not to post the times beforehand, deal with it. The sense of entitlement coming over regarding these set times is quite pathetic really.

Don’t agree.

We overwhelmingly give them lots of praise on here. It’s balanced to point out occasions where they go wrong.

What’s the big downside to the organisers in sharing them in advance?

There must be some reason? I doubt Simon is sat about twiddling his thumbs on the week of the festival laughing at people asking for it on Twitter.

it's annoying and a bit shoddy, but Glastonbury this is not. You could legitimately watch 15 minutes of every band playing at this festival. How much planning really can you do?

Yeah seems a very odd thing to be directing loads of energy at the day before the festival. You can "plan" an EOTR day in a couple of minutes. We're not going interrailing.

*starts repacking*

Very, very much looking forward to this weekend. Been incredibly busy, but will try to post both my usual festival weather forecast and a few tips on acts tonight or in the morning, as I've been lucky enough to see a lot of them already this summer.

I like the stage times before I leave home, mainly because I don't have a colour printer at my tent, but not a big deal to take a pen to transfer the colours from clashfinder to the programme on arrival. My OCD part will cope I think...

You can always leave the festival every morning when they post the times and travel to a printing company in Salisbury who will print the clashfinder out in colour for you.

One thing everyone has failed to mention is that if you know the set times in advance then you know clashes.

And if you know clashes, you can listen to the acts a bit more to decide which you prefer.

Well yeah, but that’s only really useful if they come out a week minimum before the fest. Doesn’t really make any difference if they come out today or tomorrow.

Never mind where and when we'll learn the stage times, is it too much to hope the festival might actually announce that three of their acts have pulled out in the last 24 hours? Or will they just endlessly link to the Covid protocol page again?

I imagine the uncertainty with times is havoc for neurodoverse people.

And really a clashfinder or app is by far the easiest way to inform people of changes in the covid era. They're in the programme is pathetic really as guaranteed to be wrong by the event. 

There isn't any benefit to what they're doing.

If the times were released yesterday as people on here demanded they'd be it would now be wrong. It's not like the festival is going to hoodwink people who are on site into thinking those are still playing until the last minute.

 

Question: is anyone actually looking forward to EOTR? Because right now it doesn't seem so.

Bizarrely aggressive post to come out with over people simply saying they'd like some stage times tbh.

I'm super excited. Went to Latitude earlier in the year, and though good was so crowded and big, I found myself longing for the chilled experience of eotr,. Hopefully the only minor stress will be deciding which stage to head to next!

On that subject, 1st on tomorrow, Blood Wizard vs Fortitude Valley. I'm enjoying both... Anyone seen either to feed back on the live experience?

There’s an answer for everything!

I mean, I agree it would’ve been nice, I like to plan for the exact reason you set out (and usually print a clashfinder too, although this year for the first time I’m taking my proper phone so can just use that). It’s not really that big of a deal, though, particularly as the times announced by the acts so far have tied in exactly with 2019.

Very much looking forward to it. Plenty for me to see and the fact the line-up is not quite as stacked as a normal year is leaving more space to visit the Talking Heads stage or just wander around. Particularly can't wait to see Little Simz, that Tiny Desk concert she released yesterday is amazing. Also a self-imposed 'no tents' rule will mean some early nights, although a stellar secret set announcement might tempt me.

I like the early morning do nothing rambles around the site. Maybe grab a coffee, a light breakfast, have a relax and a read, maybe a shit.

Just capable of being simultaneously excited and mildly irked by a nonsensical decision
