absolute fucken nightmare
maybe i wont get a ticket after all.
Isn't a single band you want to see there with SO MANY amazing bands and DJ's playing then you have some serious issues I think...
It's mainly not my thing but with so many acts it's nearly invetible! Unless you only like really heavy metal & doom or something!
its nothing new tho, the only person i wanted to see last year was stevie wonder.
but as a package the last two years have absolutely smoked it
Not brilliant. When I saw the West Holts stage I thought it was going to be another year when absolutely every band in the world played, but the other main stages aren't that special.
So, so happy with that. The rest is a mixed bag though
Think how FUN Monae will be...
Also - CHUMBAWUMBA
still, some killer acts but the clashes are already proving to be dire
pisses on its chips from a great height this year...
Most of Bestival's acts are at Glastonbury?
for most of the best stuff that's playing there sure...
The Cure? Diplo? That's the only two I can see off the top of my head.
Brian Wilson, all of the acts hyperdub are bringing, same with the Numbers and Night Slugs stuff, Public Enemy, Rustie, Emeralds, Modeselektor, Zola Jesus...
Each to their own and all that but Glastonbury has over 500 acts playing across the weekend. There's definitely as much good stuff on as at any other festival.
am i going blind?
bestival >>>>>> glastonbury
still no primavera mind.
Not as good as some of the other UK festivals but I'd say its the best of the big 4 (Glasto, Reading/Leeds, T in the Park, V)
We went to Glastonbury 2 years ago and the lineup wasn't this good, we still had an awesome time.
If you're going, feel lucky. You should try T in the park sometime - it's shite!
raving about T in the Park. No joke.
Or they like The Proclaimers? Paolo Nutini? The View? The Fratellis? KT Tunstall? Travis? ANYTHING Scottish?
I might be stereotyping here but most of the people I know who go to T and like it, go because they like to get wasted and sit in front of the main stage all weekend and listen to bands like this.
They do get some good bands playing but the lineup has got worse by the year. (saying that, this years is much better than last years).
It's pretty pish.
I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.
but if you go to Glastonbury just for the music you're doing it wrong
It's what Eavis call an 'old boy' slot, they normally put somebody pretty big in it... kind of for families/older folks.
its usually one of the best things there.
but still, that bandwagon-hopping cretinous twat being placed that high on the bill makes me feel unwell.
praying that I get a ticket on sunday
He'll sing Homeward bound as the sun is just about to go down and it will be amazing.
should be on the sunday afternoon legends slot.
and sheds and not understanding kids these days
And so on.
and I think this might be the best line-up they've ever put out.
Which is how it should be really. Though I'm sort of glad I'm not going, as I'm far too picky.
I'm going to miss so many bands, because I will get sidetracked... just every blinking moment the is something on, I'm going to be running from area to area like never before.
Sunday is a nightmare as far as headline clashes go! Kool & The Gang, Beyonce and QOTSA are all worthy of closing the festival for me, surprise Impala have made it onto the pyramid and get 2 slots in the festival.
But overall, very happy at the line up
What the fuck are you all going on about?
Anyway, much as Glastonbury is basically the worst place on earth, there is definitely some really strong stuff buried in there.
what earth do you live on and can you please tell me where it is?
ironically dancing to Beyonce.
nor do they seem to have been to Glastonbury but rather V festival
It would be one of the few justifications to hope for rain.
Might as well go kill themselves. Quit moaning & don't bother buying a fucking ticket next time so I can get one. x
And a lot of filler. Would have to say, on the whole, if I'd paid for a ticket, I'd be reasonably pleased.
Part of me is hoping that it's because they have a greater number of leftover tickets than in previous years. Either way, I'm going all out on Sunday.
1) Because they released it on the 14th last year
2) Word got out that it had been leaked
3) They are afraid of not selling out
4) They always release the line up when the tickets are almost sold out
So I don't know
That is all.
Saturday but MOSTLY SUNDAY is a hell for clashes, so much so I'm going to throw around the term Clashtonbury with little regard of how unoriginal/boring it is.
Just look at the line ups side by side on Saturday and Sunday and prepare to weep :(
Which he apparently didn't on his UK tour (where he bafflingly played to about 5 people)
depends how good he is at ATP
Joy Formidable, Wild Beasts, TV on the Radio, Caribou, Bright Eyes, Everything Everything, Yuck, Friendly Fires, Those Dancing Days, Morrissey, DJ Shadow, Phoenix Foundation, Queens of the Stone Age. It like someone's broken into my head and pulled out all the bands I want to see and put them over 5 different stages. Looks like I'm going to have a good summer!
in the two dance tents is fucking insane. some good stuff dotted about all over the place too.
extremely good news, I'd recommend them to anyone:
what a cracking stage that is proving to be, bands by day and DJs by night... great use of the dance stage at night to stop the scenario where you had a world class DJ playing to 5 people.
Best stages? West Holts or Oxyler On West On West with The Park and WoW running at joint 3rd
Two bands I follow on Facebook have self confirmed and are nowhere to be seen.
As far as the line up goes it's weaker on paper (for my tastes at least) than when I last went in 2009. But there are still more than enough good bits spread about to fill up the time. Saturday night is a right pickle! Park vs. West Holts.
but at the same time I know the visual display accompanying a Chemical Brothers greatest hits set may very well be too much to miss.... and my friends will probably going to that.... GOD DAMN IT so hard to choose
I failed to get tickets in October so I've signed up to work there but I'm considering trying my luck in the resale tomorrow and going as a punter. Saturday and Sunday especially look great.
I like her quite a lot and all but 1) I didn't realise she was big enough to get on the main stage and 2) the idea of her soft, gentle folkabouts playing on the largest stage seems a bit odd.
I like the line-up anyway. I hope the BBC feeds show some of the Eels and Bright Eyes gigs, and I really hope Elbow pull out that Independent Women cover of theirs.
That she'd be better fitted for a Park headline slot. But then, I've heard quite a lot of people who I wouldn't expect to like her talking about her recently (I mean, she's still not really played on radio 1, more 2 and 6music). The Pyramid's great for massive sing-a-longs which I can't really imagine for her.
And seconded for Elbow playing Independant Woman (although I'll probably end up seeing Janelle Monae instead), I expect they will, Guy Garvey's that kind of person.
This one made me laugh though:
Sufjan, Kanye & Cut Copy aren't playing.
and Kanye is headlining the big chill so he might be exclusive to that or something
dunno about Cut Copy
How has no one mentioned him yet, he is going to be insane
there's no sign of either pulp or the strokes though.
I'm hoping for at least one of them to pop up under some incredibly tedious pseudonym.
go home strokes.
The Killers / Arctic Monkeys / Kasabian
