I hate the IoW festival. All that money for one goddamned stage and such drossy mainstream crap.
And now I'm going to have to shell out £140 as I wanna see Pixies again.
Milking that reunion a bit now.
maybe this will shut up the idiots on the IOW forums...
for gods sake...I don't like the idea of grinding through a weekend of blandness for 2 blinding acts. Why can't they just do day tickets!?!?!
that they're not doing atp or whatever. that would've be awesome. I'm hoping that'll be doing a few proper gigs to go with it, as it says festival exclusive, rather than only show. And plus they said that for neil young and that meant fuck all.
I thought they'd split up again! I really wanna see them again.
In the past it's been quite easy to get dodgy wristbands from touts on the last evening though, expect to pay £50.
Also lots of people leave on the last day to get ferries etc long before the last act. Two years ago I left at 6pm and gave my wristband to a lady outside the gate who really wanted to see the Rolling Stones. Her face was a picture.
I'm very confused - are they just gonna try and stuff Neil Young & The Pixies in with The Ting Tings/ The Stereophonics etc etc... or are they trying to give the festival a bit of a credibility makeover?
but for neil young they didn't say how exclusive, probably exclusive to the fucking isle of wight. Whereas here it says only UK festival date. But we can hope they're doing others..
That's apparently what their customer service desk said about Neil Young
