Band of Horse, Horrors, Local Natives and Edwyn Collins the main acts
Not overly excited about the first batch. The festival needs refreshing; it's starting to get a tad 'samey' and losing some spark, for me. I still enjoy it, but they are resting on their laurels.
again this year for me then
How do Band of Horses get away with releasing drivel for so long and are still able to headline a festival like this? EOTR looks way better already and more acts this week
I'm sure green man's other headliners will be better. The bands announced are decent, just not massively exciting!
seriously considering just doing End of the Road instead...
he won some Brits!
The undercard is decent, with some underwhelming headliners.
and I imagine once the line-up is filled out then it'll be really good, and it is Green Man so will still be fun. Might see if I can steward, at least, but don't fancy spending £145 just yet..
At the moment though, i do think EOTR has the superior line up
purely because it is in the school holidays and I keep missing Roy Harper's shows.
I've heard of Ben Howard but had no idea he was 'a thing'. From the reaction here and on the GM boards I'm guessing I won't too impressed.
there's always at least one headliner that seems weaker (Jarvis Cocker, Animal Collective, that kinda thing), but getting Ben Howard as a headliner will probably attract a new audience.
I guess it just depends on how much of a gamble it really is to have somebody who's just won two brit awards as your headliner. If it attracts more new people than it puts off old, then it's definitely worth it.
A natural progression from Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai in that slot the last two years. Ben Howard is a no mark but will please the Mumford dullards and shift a lot of tickets. Band of Horses are great live and have a shit load of tunes, the undercard needs more psych stuff for me. It'll be fine.
. Especially Low, Swans and Midlake
Last year SUCKED without.
happended last year?
just had to be careful of my footing. wellies are for mugs (definitely gonna buy a pair if I go this year).
final headliner are the Kings of Convenience
Whole load of other bands.
For the first time in a while, not at all tempted by Green Man this year. EOTR is a much better line up (headliner wise) for once.
I rarely watch the headliners anyway. Apart from the headliners, the EOTR lineup looks really, really weak this year although I'm guessing they have a fair few to announce still. Normally it looks really good. Do they have the late-night stuff there like they do at Green Man?
actually think the EOTR is strong overall now it's all out.
were brilliant headliners at Porto Primavera last year. Really surprised me.
made some nice discoveries last night. looking forward to seeing Low, Haiku Salut, Swans, Horrors, Money, Phosphorescent, British Sea Power, Wild Smiles and a few more.
not an amazingly exciting line-up but lots of ones i'll watch.
