They're crap. That's whats wrong with them.

They're a very boring band with no memorable songs, who can't cut it live but are inexplicably popular. I would just ignore them but festivals keep booking them and people keep describing them as "ind

When you say "bullshit", are you referring to the staff party in the article or to COVID itself?

I just got my vaccine in Serbia. I literally just showed up, waited in line for 30 minutes and got my first dose. Next one in 3-5 weeks

 

A lot of older people don't want a vaccine here cause ???? so it's kinda open to public, when I was there majority of people were under 50. Love my country 😐

Any chance that non-Serbs can show up and get vaccinated?

Parklife festival lineup announcement this week for September. Primavera to follow in next couple of weeks?

If they announce anything related to the 2021 edition of the festival going ahead... man, that'd be a hell of a leap of faith.

Even if they don't have any faith left, that would still be a logical step to follow. At this moment you gotta want to keep ticketholders optimistic and maybe even get some new sales through. 

If the UK keeps up the vaccination rate, a 15.000 people festival might even be possible there, something that is very unlikely for continental Europe.

Well if they don't announce it at some point soon, that's guaranteeing that it won't go ahead!

exactly. worse case, it get's cancelled and you earn a few months before you need to refund anyone.

Sure, it's a lot of logistics and coordinations, but at this point in our life, I'm quite sure there's no pre-payments to any artists, venues or other suppliers, so it's only work that will go down the drain

Where did you get that info? I always thought it's a huge festival, even the articles about moving to September mention that the capacity is around 75-80k.

I think that what they are saying is a 15k cap festival might be possible in the UK but even that is unlikely for Europe (thus ruling our Primavera this year).

Simply lifted it from the Wikipedia article. I guess you are right though, all other sources say 70k plus. Maybe someone misread 75.000k when writing the article or smth. Withdrawing my optimism.

I am still optimistic 2022 festival can happen.

2022 will be an insane year, lineups-wise. Even if festivals are smaller scaled this year, at least we have a beefy speculations season coming op this fall/winter to look forward to. 

Always looking for positive angles. 🙂

If the UK keeps up the current vaccination rate, then we could be pretty much clear of the virus well before September. Whether vaccine supplies allow that is probably the biggest issue. If that gets sorted then there's no reason why the rest of continental Europe can't catch up - The UK hit almost 500k vaccinations per day recently, and there are still some of the bigger vaccination centres that haven't come online yet. I can't believe the rest of Europe can't match the UK government's ability to run a vaccination program.

I've seen comments from the Parklife people, and they appear to be serious about trying for September. It's a shame that it's such an 18-30 festival as it's within walking distance of my house 😞

UK don't have a problem with Astrazeneca and Pfizer like EU 🙂

Bicep dates rescheduled to september. I guess it's fair to assume PS and all comparable bands in size have also been rescheduled. What about the big ones? Who are we losing this time? 

I feel like strokes the national and massive attack will try to avkid skipping the chance to play ps as much as possible. If they don't play this kind of festival, then where are they going to play (coachella doesn't book strokes anymore)? The same could be true for tame impala. No idea about tyler. Ps looks like having developed a good relationship with him or his team over the years. And he doesn't seem to be playing very huge festivals such as coachella so it could be also in his interest to do ps... Anyway if tyler drops out they just need to fix any problem they have with bbk and give us kendrick 🤤

I'd be very sceptical of the Australia-based Tame Impala making it and frankly of any non-European acts. Would seem more sensible to focus on those with less complicated/expensive touring  needs.

Especially as the trend now seems to be towards ever more restricted border controls.

Interesting on Bicep. They've added an extra date too.
