So it looking like there aren’t any obvious gaps in the schedule for secret sets and whatnot? 

Doesn't look like it unless there's the hidden stage somewhere, and reading between the lines with the email they sent out last week it felt very "that's your lot, this one was a fucking nightmare, don't expect anything else".

Bit torn on the main stage setup. Back to back headliners with 5 minute gaps is cool if you've got an iron bladder and aren't drinking from the bar but otherwise you're gonna have to dip mid music to do either. Probably have to float around further back in the crowd

Boiler Room X Cupra, isn't it?

I think that's further down. I'm talking about that grass knoll opposite old Primavera that was used for the Arcade Fire secret set and...ah also used in 2018 (not last time, my mistake) for Hidden. Saw Lee Fields there, was nice.

I know there's always going to be clashes, but there seems to be some really poor scheduling for acts of the same styles that would have the exact same fanbases.

National V Warpaint sticks out. Posted it on my Discord group and a few people were very confused by that one.

Yeah, you can get over that hip hop act you like clashing with your hard rock faves as there a bit different but Caribou and Jamie xx, for instance, is a bit mad. National v Warpaint too. Lots more examples above.

Based on this, any guesses for Gorillaz guests? Slowthai a banker, surely? 

Little Simz featured with Gorillaz last year in their UK Sound Machine gigs.

I presume the splitting of the vote with certain fanbases/genres is so people are moving around the site a bit more mid-act? The more people move around, the more you're more likely to quickly try and grab a beer or food, maybe. I dunno. Some of it is so brutal that there must be some reasoning behind it.

Yeah I’ll be doing that. Might have to retire after Lingua Ignota as I have a feeling that will be devastating.

Feel like there’s gonna be an ‘efestival’ crew for that run. I’m definitely in as well

Lingua opening is a pretty harrowing start to the festival but I guess in a sense it's "ripping the plaster off"? Appreciate the darkness then get to partying. 

Second only to Cave's 2nd gig after losing his son before Gorillaz and Tyler

In my memory it has always been that way. And if there were any reasoning behind it, I would rather think it’s for crowd management reasons more than anything else (don’t underestimate how important that has become in running a festival nowadays)

Kacey Musgraves and Girl in Red are overlapping by 5mins on the Mordor side-by-side stages.....

Guessing GiR will have the last 10mins of her set chopped off.

In a way it's kinda cool that GIR can say thanks and then "now look that way" and hype up Kacey. 

The worst offense is Dinosaur Jr. taking me away from both, although they're playing Manchester later in the year so maybe I don't have to miss out...

Will wet legs appeal be as big here as it will be at Glasto or any other UK festival? Thinking I’ll likely give them a miss at Glasto because of how rammed the park will be.

It'll be busy as there's nothing notable up against them and they'll catch a lot of the crowd that are getting on site at that 7pmish time.
