...Supergrass and Ash apparently...
to me. What is the vibe like? a good festival overall?
How easy is it to get to and from London? what time does it finish on the Sunday?
and people have been a bit down on it in recent years but I've always had a good time. The main thing putting me off these days is that ticket price has jumped massively (used to be about £30 for the weekend) for not much of a stronger line-up.
Train to Didcot from Paddington takes about an hour. You have to cab it from there but it's only about 15 minutes drive.
and there is a festival bus that will be running from Oxford, and I think there might be one going from London but amn't sure. Also, the 35A goes every hour during the daytime - http://www.oxfordbus.co.uk/main.php?page_id=56
That's pretty odd.
I see the logic with Supergrass, but Ash are a weird choice. Are they cheap to book these days?
Still, I imagine these will be quite popular choices. I'd quite like to see Supergrass.
I'm hoping for some really good bands in the sub-headliner slots.
headlined the Ben & Jerry's Sundae thing last year. I'd forgotten how many great songs they had. We had a ball! Well, they weren't as good as The Lemonheads, obviously, but they were good fun.
if it was Megadeth
and these headliners do so many festival and aren't special at all :(
That's just not true. And I really think Supergrass playing at Truck will be pretty special, but that's more of a personal opinion thing, anyway.
And £35 in 2006?
one of the times i went. it might have been another year... or all bullshit... apologies if so.
i dunno, it's just that Ash are playing my university ball thing too... i just don't see them or supergrass as being special as we've all seen them both a million times.
I do maths at uni, so I get really pedantic about tiny things like that.
I guess it's bad luck that Ash are playing yr uni ball but I can honestly say that I'm genuinely really excited about both of these bands: I've been a fan of Ash since God-knows-when, and Supergrass are a genuinely local band, so maybe next year we can have Radiohead. Thom Yorke, at the very least.
but if this is true it might just tempt me to go back
and they were incredible, it was really special.
this is makign me think i may need ot go to truck but offset was going to be my little festival this year....
how much is it this year?
Who the hell am Red Light Company and Detroit Social Club?
Internet stuff here:
Internet Forever still tbc...
If so, GUFFAW!
Aren't you playing at Indietracks, anyway? That's what I thought at least..
'not twee enough', they said.
That's the twee-est gig night in the world! (and break bones is more or less a lowest-fi twee-pop classic)
i like supergrass but i dont like them that much.
still haven't got round to checking out errors or calories.
still dont think i'll go though...
and it was about £60 last year.
anyhoo, very excited that errors are playing, woo hoo!
Already committed to Indietracks that weekend, but I can't think I'd be missing that much. Of those I haven't seen there's Broken Records, Calories (who I've only half seen to date) and Andrew Ferris, who confirmed himself as doing an acoustic set on the STA blog yesterday.
£27.50 in 2005, £40 in 2006, £55 in 2007 and £60 last year according to my wegotickets account.
The £27.50 in 2005 seems cheap, can't remember but was there some sort of early bird deal that year as I though 2004 was £35 or so?
It was a fiver the first year I went and I remember being quite shocked at paying £15 or so a couple of years later
and £15 in 2002 (although think that was went up to £20 after the first month or so)
That was my first one, and I've been every year since. But not this year, I fear...
i think its pretty reasonable to be fair..
I wasn't planning to go this year anyway, but what's with all this strange nostalgia for them? That said, Ash are still an awesome proposition live and outdoors.
