The distance between then makes any similar line ups irrelevant
or the distance in style; small festival aimed at beardy speccy guys with girlfriends in floral dresses, plus, as the years go on a child called Banjo in a Bugaboo?
If I was in a touring band, I'd play ones which were good or which I was likely to go to as a punter, not just any old thing. Money, eh?
Well EotR def is, and everyone says the same about GM.
I think it was more a general question, probably shouldn't have posted it here
headlining green man this year - thought they were ATP exclusive outside of scotland?
english exclusive.. oh well.
If EotR do it, Greenman will do it the next year. Is particularly obvious with the off-piste acts (i.e. not the folkier stuff). If they weren't two festivals so clearly aimed at exactly the same dollar it wouldn't matter, but is starting to get a bit silly now.
But it's loads better than gm
Nothings obvious comparing the 2012 gm with 2011 eotr, sorry.
Very sad to see GM establishing a Friday night headliner tradition of dull post-rock.
Tenth anniversary this year - was hoping for something a little more inspired (Bonnie Prince Billy *cough*), but the line up as a whole is absolutely boss this year.
no more than you'd expect from 2 festivals with essentially the same target audience. There's only so many bedwetting mid-level MOR indie bands (safety wink)
Solid line up for GM, better than EOTR this year if you ask me.
Mogwai, who are only marginally less boring than explosions in the sky, headlined Eotr last year but so did joanna newsom, who headlined green man the year before. I've seen most of those bands at green man in the last few years.
I'm restricted to festivals during the school holidays so it's gm for me but I'm sure eotr is great too. Roy harper is welcome to play next year as far as i'm concerned.
