Ahhh that’s an excellent line-up, khruangbin kicking off things on the Thursday is the dream. Great surprise to see fleet foxes on the bill, especially as I’ve just gotten back into them as I’m doing a songwriting class led by robin which is awesome. Some great undercard too, so hyped for this

Fleet Foxes is good but really disappointing not to have Big Thief. 

We got ourselves into thinking Big Thief were playing even though there was no indication they were going to make a third visit this year. What's stranger is that Battles (and Hinds, Dead Meadow and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets) are  over to play Manchester Psych Fest on the 3rd...

Maybe Wet Leg are being saved for the second announcement? Unless they're in the US over the weekend it'd be strange for them to talk about their EOTR formation/credentials for a year and then not play when they have the best opportunity they'll likely ever have.

No idea on this khruangbin doubt.. they will be the band of the weekend and are playing big tours around the world. They’ve sold out Alexandra Palace on their upcoming tour.. Such an amazing live band, I don’t imagine people will be disappointed after they deliver 😎

It’s a good line given the circumstances 

What circumstances? The first entirely British name on the bill* is eleventh down. They're clearly expecting every overseas band to make it, which is risky given we don't know if there'll be a continental European festival circuit for them.

(* it's not clear if Aldous Harding is still based in Wales)

Some very good stuff there for sure.  I’m sure people here will be underwhelmed by the headliners though..

Not me. Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes & Pixies are the best 3 headline acts they've had in years as far as I'm concerned!

Great undercard as well.

The pandemic.
