New heavy/noise type festival at Motion in Bristol next May.
Colour me interested.
will be a very similar clientelle i'd think? direct competition.
Supersonic is 25 - 27 April
i'll keep an eye on both but i reckon this will cut Supersonic's crowd a wee bit, especially as they've got quite a good name headliner already.
aye, seems to be saturating the market a bit dunnit? especially as you've got roadburn and desertfest a few weeks before too.
when i was at supersonic in 2011 there seemed to be a lot of people that had travelled from around the country to it. Bristol would probably cut the number of people coming from down south if it ends up being a similar lineup.
which might - this is admittedly getting into the realms of total speculation - mean that they go for a lineup that's a bit more like the ones in their first few years, when there were little to no metal bands on the bill
wouldn't mind that at all either to be honest. just really hope the capsule team keep running events.
And Capsule are very much still going - they've programmed the majority of the launch events for the new Birmingham library (which has been fantastic so far) and at the end of October they're doing a Supersonic-esque thing too:
But will wait until the rest of the lineup is announced before getting a ticket. Too often the undercard for this sort of thing ends up being one band from Japan and a bunch of second division post-metal.
Let's face it, they are worth it.
