you do realise RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and METALLICA are playing dont you?!
and don't get me started on RATM...
I'm sure the line-up will look good when it fleshes out a bit more though
well not recently, they have a winning formula, and they keep to it
than one song from st. anger, load or reload?
i've seen them twice and they have played upto about 4 songs from them, and they were fun enough live
with stanger on the reading headline slot they did 4 or 5 years back? everyone was kind of 'hmmm yay', and then after that they went into blackened and there was a communal shitting of pants.
but that might have happened, i think blackened was near the end
rilly good then
once youve seen them recently theres no point in seeing them again. i went to the gig at Wembley Stadium and I left after about 30 mins. It was boooring.
you cant be bothered to listen to their records anymore, cos they run in the same order
particularly the radio 1 tents, there's a lot of filler.. the Wombats indeed.
but thats only about a third if not a quarter of the bands actually playing.theres loads more to be announced
but they will put on a good show wont they
I go every year to whichever site i can get a ticket for, but the moment i really cant be arsed. Latitude is gonna cream this bollox!
And before them were SOAD, not a joke band.
It's not shit, it's just a line up that screams "It'll sell out anyway, let's put no thought or imagination into it". In recent years even the Carling stage (or whatever it will be called now) has had a bit of a fall.
I know there's more to be added, but it's the first time since 2002 that I'm not in a blind panic trying to get tickets
it was like a dust bowl down the front there were so many people moshing (or whatever) and the ground was so dry... - good times!
But you could see the dust rising up into our air.
One of our mates was right in the mix, came back, his trousers had been torn to shreds
but there will be planty worth seeing once everything else has been announced. YES
Metallica have made two half great albums
but will be a good, if not exactly vital show,
let's see: Nirvana at the peak of their powers vs Metallica ten years past their peak
oohhh big scary noises
and RATM might show signs of life but it's all a bit 13 years ago, no?
just sayin like
there are only three people per day on the radio one stage, no lock up, no dance and no introducing or whatever it's called, and then there are still a few othe tiny stages.
so I am guessing the rest of that list is true
seeing as what they have announced offically is as per
particularly the lockup stage
thats 3 great albums
Load and Reload they play.
The Memory Remains at Wembley was fucking epic.
There are very few line-ups that would convince me to go.
with a bit of biffy :D
is going to be Puzzle-heavy though, judging by recent sets. Which is fine if you like Puzzle though, i guess.
Either full of teenage pricks from the Home Counties, or teenage pricks from the North.
And the line-up is invariably shite.
Dealing with Babaychamed up 17 year olds away from Mummy and Daddy for the first time does not a good festival make
teenage pricks from london. me being one :) :)
but yeah the line up is a little shite. go to truck if your that bothered.
but i wouldn't say it was shit. T In The Park and V are shit.
its not really tickling my FANNY
I'm going to use the phrase though just for laughs.
is that they have announced pretty much exactly the line up that we all knew they were going to from the rumours, so there has been no exciting surprises. I'm too old to go (its for kids right?) but that looks like the strongest of the three big festivals by some distance.
not everyone likes RATM and Metllica?
I personally wouldn't mind seeing RATM, but think I would be left twiddling my thumbs during most days.
this year and the previous 2 years there have been so many great new and improved fests here and in europe with interesting lineups and nicer surroundings that reading just seems so 90s and predictable.
Surely no one over 19 goes though anyway. Its a bit like getting grumpy about the line up for the Radio One roadshows or whatever they are callng them these days.
especially in Europe.
started out at about £50/£60!
Don't base your music knowledge on Guitar Hero!
There are a few bands I'd like to see, but I didn't like the atmosphere last time I went. I think smaller festivals are the way to go...
But check out RATM's first album - learn to love that and then watching them live will blow you away!
in existence who thinks of RATM as nothing more than 'alright'
i got that first album and it's ok. I can't be arsed with political music and zach's voice annoys me
the atmosphere was rubbish, I spent most of the weekend wanting to kick people in the head. Too many kids trying to be 'random' and not realising not everyone will see the 'funny' side of throwing tents on fires.
I felt the same way. This is why I have decided that although I will venture back I am NOT camping!
the 5 days or so that comprise the festival weekend. Irritating teenagers pissed on cheap cider trying to be random, the inescapable muffled sound of horrible, horrible bands playing the main stage, the inability to go anywhere in my lovely town without encountering filthy 30+ white dudes with dreads and Greenday/Murderdolls t-shirts.
I'll ruin Metallica for you:
Metalli-fuckin-ca a couple of years ago. that amused me. Even though the line up looks fairly average, it usually has a few gems that get announced later on. Also even though the names mentioned for latitude are pretty ace, I don't think I could bring myself to buying a ticket for a festival that has a poetry arena. Instead I'm off to Belgium to see REM, Radiohead, beirut and all at werchter.
it looks amazing. Anyone ever been?
good well run festival, have some great names there, but as I said below only two stages, which can sometimes leave a choice between something like Mika and Counting crows, but you can get that in many places. Also, easy to get to on eurostar, and you can get by without knowing any Flemish.
I'm doing that and Reading, werchter does have some cracking top billed names but is fairly light on smaller bands as there are only two stages, so I should be able to catch a few of them at reading.
but once again the effing multi-credit card touting mofo's have bought up every single available ticket and but them on Ebay for mafia style prices.
Nice way to make some quick cash though..
Rage against the machine are now deemed worthy of being headliners but in their prime they used to play the late afternoon slot? (They were rubbish both times as well from what i remember.)
is the easy route to being a big band.
They were past their prime by then though.
I think Metallica's set in 98' (or whenever) was the most bored I've been at a gig ever.
i don't really like RATM and i've seen metallica before. rrrubbish.
