Looks interesting. I just had that email from Bird On The Wire.
are those venues near each other? (ie, within a few minutes walk)
the actual website has their addresses http://visionsfestival.com/
two are right next to each other, the third is ~10 minutes walk
Maybe even trip to London interesting.
But I'm away that weekend.
Which is a shame as Radfest was flipping brilliant last year.
and said that they were working on something new. Which appears to be this.
Cloud Nothings worth it for me alone, having missed them every time before :(
Plus The Haxan Cloak was brutal at Birthdays, I'd gladly (maybe not the right word) go through that again.
Is this going to be a horrendous queue fest though?
this is the only thing stopping me buying a ticket at this point
Thanks for the tip!
Oval Space and Netil House are very close to each other (though there's a canal in the way). the other venue seems to be new.
went to a party there a few years ago
I've probably been there as well, just never know the name of the place.
!!! and Jeffrey Lewis don't clash I'm there.
I can only see problems.
I predict a clash-fest/queue-fest scenario.
I think I will just lodge myself where Fucked Up are and hope that the surrounding stuff is of interest.
If it isn't a horrendous queue fest, can go and see half of Fucked Up, then go to finish off at !!!. If it is, you leave halfway through Fucked Up to join a queue.
maybe they could swap stages at some point, and then everyone can see both
even though it was inevitable.
Echo Lake & Still Corners are my two must sees.
What are the venues like?
The pics of Netil House show a rooftop & a carpark. I'm guessing the music is in the carpark?
Anyone had any information regarding wristband collection?
Still tossing up me. Still concerned about queueing bullshit mainly.
have only heard a handful of the artists so any tips on who to catch and what they sound like would be appreciated
want my e-ticket for £15? I got in on the early bird but currently laid low with inflamed tonsils and can hardly swallow (ooer)- want to go mad for !!! but can't see it happening. Message me if interested.
But I am just going to be in Netil House from Paws until Fucked Up.
Really excited now.
could be my undoing tbh
so I think I'm gonna check out Haxan Cloak instead and then try to get back in for Cloud Nothings
hopefully moving between venues won't be a complete nightmare
unfortunately none of my bands are playing). Anyone know the area well? Are all three venues within a ten minute walking distance or do I have to use a bus?
and also being chased by bees. bus it
More like 5. Netil house is on Westgate Street, right?
It just round the corner of Mare St and Westgate St
Have really slept on it but I have no plans today and that's a great lineup.
available at the wristband collection venue; the Oval Space. But they advice getting there early. I guess they would say that though.
I saw the full sets of Echo Lake, Cloud Nothings and Jeffrey Lewis and bits of Micachu and Tirzeh, Iceage and East India Youth.
Overall, I thought it was well organized for an inaugural one dayer. I thought moving between venues and queuing would be a hassle but I didn't mind it and I was probably lucky in that I didn't have to queue at all.
The highlight was Cloud Nothings but Echo Lake also put on a great set.
No queues! Plus plenty of areas to hang around outside so it wasn't necessary to stand inside a dark venue in the middle of a summer's day waiting for a band to come on.
Missed Public Service Broadcasting, but managed to see The Soft Moon and bits of iceage, Cloud Nothings, Still Corners, then all of !!!. !!! were worth the price of admission alone - absolutely brilliant.
Saw Public Service Broadcasting, !!!, Cloud Nothings and a few more (Jackson Scott I think) - also sat for ages in the brewhouse listening to DJs and drinking strong IPA....
Didn't have to queue either, all three venues were quality. Good crowd as well, no bellends.
I got very pissed and only caught a few bands but I thought the multi-venue set-up worked well. The canal/pathway to/from Oval Space especially felt like its own world. Lovely crowd, spot-on, superb vibe.
Cloud Nothings were outstanding. one of the few bands to truly make me feel like a boy again. crowdsurfed twice, topless for one of them (it was so hot at the front, my god). Covered in cuts n bruises, sliced my finger on the monitor but all worth it. Love them
had an excellent time. Not too massive, no arseholes, easy to get around, good value for money.
sounds great! But I opted for Owen Pallett instead (which was also excellent)
no queues, no idiots, super pleasant vibe, nice venues, drank some excellent ales at the London Fields brewery in the sun. Haxan Cloak was good, love Molly Nilsson, The Soft Moon were great, Cloud Nothings pretty fun. Good day all round.
end that's what made the day really fun. Each venue had a slightly different vibe and the food and beer varied at each place too. An excellent festival. Well done and thank you to the organizers. ATP perhaps you could learn some lessons on how to organize an all dayer.
all nice, and having slightly different vibes to each one was a nice feature.
glad to hear this was good. i might go next year
Didn't queue all day. Good ales in stock, spent a bit of time on the Netil House rooftop.
Paws were fantastic. I need to listen more to them.
I stayed with a mate to watch Iceage. I thought it was one of the worst gigs I've seen all year. Left after four songs for the rooftop.
Cloud Nothings were fun. Wasn't too huge on the new songs but it worked as a three piece.
Danced to !!! like a loon for a bit at the front cos I've seen Fucked Up twice this year. It was a very fun set.
haxan cloak was fookin' glorious.
My highlights were Still Corners and !!!. Atmosphere for !!! was so good. Wondered where the lead singer had gone at one point, only to spot him prancing around on the bar. Crazy.
The Brewhouse venue was probably my favourite, mostly due to the wide selection of beer. Shame they didn't sell some bottles of it at the other venues.
Loved that there were no queues. Easy to see any band. Food was good too. Had some some jerk chicken that went down well. All in all a great festival. Especially considering this was the first.
Saw Primitive Parts, Public Service Broadcasting, Molly Nilson, Kiran J Callinan, Haxan Cloak, Soft Moon, Koreless and !!!.
Highlights were PBC, who I wasn't really familiar with but sounded like a krautrock Avalanches, Soft Moon who were reliably intense and !!!, who were incredibly fun and danceable.
Kiran J Callinan was beguiling- veered between Nick Cave, Prince and Depeche Mode.
Really well organised, no queues for anything, good crowd, nice venues. Will definitely go again.
I did worry about leaving Fucked Up for !!!, thinking I might get caught in a massive queue, but none to be seen. Infact the only time I saw a queue all day was for IceAge, but we were going up to the rooftop anyway. Top marks for the organisation on that.
Highlights were Cloud Nothings and !!! I'd forgotten what a brilliant live band !!! are.
was very good. Every band I saw seemed to run exactly to advertised time, which is amazing.
Not a bad word to say at all and I'm so happy my initial fears were totally unfounded.
All three venues were great for different reasons and the overall programming just made total sense.
Cloud Nothings were the absolute highlight for me.
I hope this was the first of many.
