I think my actual top 5 “must sees” are probably too embarrassing to admit on here. 5 after that are a bit more acceptable choices though 🤣

 

Oh come on! Let us have 'em!

Very frustrating, also clashes with Sleaford mods. Saw The Streets in 2019 so I will almost certainly be at Orbital this year. Wish I could see all 3 really though!

Ah f**k I want to see sleaford mods alo, but i did see them a few years back

Keep changing my mind! 😂 But today, anyway:

 

LCD
Keane
Orbital 
Psychedelic porn crumpets
The scratch 
 
Honourable mention to TLDP, The Ks, Idles and Faithless, who I would love to see again but will depend on how busy it is. 
 
Bought Fontaine’s tickets to remove some fomo

Michael Kiwanuka

The National

PJ Harvey

Fontaines DC

Corinne Bailey Rae

 

apart from headliners though (which I think are mainly dubious), there is so much to chose from I get dizzy thinking about it. It’s only after 9pm when my potential choices start slimming down.

I see a lot of gigs, probably 3 or 4 a week, and I'm really struggling this year with what to see.  

Not because I don't like anything, but because there's so much that I like, and so much of it is acts that I've seen multiple times.  Champagne problem I know - not asking for sympathy.  Just caught between trying to see my faves or see something different.  And I will have FOMO either way.  

 

I think my top 5 musts are 

 

PJ Harvey (top five aritist of all time for me)

Cyndi Lauper (always a treat, and very underrated) 

Janelle Monae (never seen her, tickets were too expensive when she came here)

Idles (friends of mine, and gotta show up to see them nail it)

Lankum (am not able to make the show when they come here)

Ask me today and:

Alvvays / Mdou Moctar / The National / Danny Brown / Keane / Minna no kimochi.

 

Ask me tomorrow and:

CASISDEAD / Mannequin Pussy / High Vis / Sofia Kourtesis / Paul Heaton.

 

Ask me on Thursday and who knows, etc. Far too many to choose from, going to be some nasty clashes in there as per!
