This looks amazing
So chilled. It was lovely. Would like to see a bit more diversity on line-up this time though. Disappointed they seem adverse to going down the route of putting a few electro acts on the bill.
Will probably go this year, but it does seem a little post rock by numbers in places. Fuck Buttons was such a brilliant headliner last year.
If only for their trolling of so many math-rock snobs. A few people I was with kept on complaining about how they played the same song for two hours.
I thought they were amazing.
Lineup keeps the post-rock fan in me very happy but as said above a bit of diversity wouldn't go amiss. Glad they've said there's going to be more toilets this year, that was literally the only gripe I could have had with last year.
In vaguely related news the 2000 Trees lineup is looking pretty damn strong.
slightly disappointed with the line up so far this year, was hoping for a bit more rock/metal, last year had FOTL, Bo Ningen for example. Doesn't seem to be so much of that which is a shame. Have got a ticket. Probably won't go. Great festival overall but nothing grabbing me this year. 2000 trees looks better in my opinion
This festival is a very short distance from where they make The Great British Bake Off.
No need to thank me.
they are showing some commitment to their original brief. Last year was a good time, but I enjoyed all the non-wooshy instrumental stuff and was sort of hoping they would build on that bit. The metal day in the second stage was great, and FOTL on the mainstage was so much fun. Also Fuck Buttons, was a bit off brief too.
So now there really isn't anything for me.
everything is hassle free and fun and all the things I hate about massive outdoorsy festivals are gone.
Going again this year, rumours about the third headliner have got me very excited.
Echo all the above about how good it was last year, and I'll be going again this year. Line-up definitely isn't quite as strong this time round, thought theres still plenty on I'd like to see. If it wasn't just outside Bristol I may have thought twice, however, it is, and its brilliantly organised, so I think will be a fun time again.
and the bands from last year. Might go because it's not that expensive and because of the dance tent, will have to see how things go with money.
Line-up isn't quite as strong so far this year but already have my ticket as it was so good last year and it's only 1 day off work really so why not.
hopefully the acts I'm less familiar with will provide enough variety to make things interesting.
how does that work at a two night festival?
but all three have been announced already.
So it could be that Russian Circles are headlining that stage, leaving room for one more on the main stage.
of my Creative Zen circa 2006-07.
Pretty happy with that.
But then again dunno what they could've really booked that would top last year.
Still going anyway.
after the brilliance of Fuck Buttons last year, but then I like Mono so I can't really complain.
Never got into them.
Saw them live once and they were pretty good, if not particularly spectacular, although I was mainly there for Talons who were supporting
There'll probably be someone else still playing on another stage when This Will Destroy you are on.
It's too niche isn't it? Can't think of another festival that narrow. I was hoping they would turn this into a sort of budget, camping ATP type line up - that's what they had last year, I reckon by accident, but this just looks boring. I really like Mono, but after a whole day of instrumental stuff, and 46 pints of bitter, that's not what I am after.
Good luck to em, but I have been niched out of this one.
never underestimate the pulling power of post-rock. all these nobody bands like God Is An Astronaut have massive fanbases - granted most of them are the children of Russian oligarchs (c.f. last.fm shoutboxes), but they can still easily sell out pretty big london shows as soon as they're announced
BATS, Baby Godzilla, Jamie Lenman, We Are Knuckle Dragger, TTNG.
Well, five that I know of.
Actually, really, really looking forward to those two bands especially.
