An outdoor gig! In Sefton Park! No restrictions! Headlined by Blossoms.

Last night felt surreal, like for a few hours I was in another world, away from the worries of the pandemic. I went with some strangers I found online, then me and some girl in the group proper h

Is anyone else having daily changes from huge confidence that we’ll be at a festival this summer, followed by doom and gloom because you can’t see it happening,before waking up the next morning with huge confidence again? Rinse and repeat.

(not helped by this thread changing from good news to bad news daily, haha)

Absolutely!

I keep telling myself - they're on until they're not - trying not to get hugely excited just in case, and definitely not thinking well the 1st week of May is done & my July festival is (as I type) still happening 😉

Absolutely buzzing at the BDs announcement.  I'll be honest, even if it ends up being cancelled the lift it's given me at the moment is exactly what I need.

Good line-up that. Big Moon getting a smaller billing than I'd expect though.

Walking Like We Do was my favourite album of 2020, but I don't really think of them as being that big. As much as I think they deserve to have a bigger following I don't really know anyone else that likes them and they don't get that much radio play.

Fair points, but I think by almost any metric they're bigger than Show Of Hands.

also a fair point as I've never heard of Show Of Hands - though according to their wikipedia page they've played and sold out the Royal Albert Hall 😮

I think they're like some old folk legends or something. My partner's parents love them and have seen them loads but I had never heard of them either before we met!

We need some way of demonstrating how many people have heard of Show of Hands...

I love Show of Hands 😂 whenever they play at Glasto, I'm there - bringing the median age in the crowd down by a few decades.

Honestly, they're really not - and that's from someone who loves The Big Moon, indeed they were my last gig before this all started. Actually, I looked at the poster and was proud to see TBM being billed equal to Show of Hands especially when you consider the BDs demographic.

Multiple times, I believe.

Fair enough, happy to admit I was wrong on this. By "almost any metric" I basically meant Spotify plays so, in retrospect I probably should have said "by the one specific metric I've looked at".

However, having now given Show Of Hands a bit of a spin today I have to say, they're not for me.

If it does I’ll likely be organising a beautiful days efest meet over on the beautiful days section 🙂

Worth adding a caveat that Longitude is Ireland.

This tells us a lot about where data results have taken them so far given how much MB has supposedly been putting it for their events.

This week is crutial for many events.

Longitude is in Ireland, not even part of the ERP. 

They are on a totally different roadmap to the UK.

Getting it mixed up with Latitude I think! 

I did get a scare this morning when I saw a headline about an outbreak in the Sefton area...turns out from a bit of googling that sefton park is actually nowhere near sefton Council area (so not in it as I'd assume) in relative Liverpool geographical terms so won't affect the event results!
