Not enough people are talking about this one
in no small part due to the fact that exlposions aren't playing it
cos there haven't been any confirmations fot AGES.
camber= less stages, so less bands.
i've looked through the lineups again, and there are MUCH more bands at PF that i actively want to see, instead of passively thinking that theyre bands i sort of should see at some point.
but im sure explosions is going to be a great w/e and i might try and get some last minute action...
Think there might be a few more yet. There are normally around 35 bands at the Camber weekends.
..that the EITS will be good. I'm thinking about getting a space late (finances depending).
i have an awesome challett of "irl" peoples omg
Or for how long, but let's do party on oM day, yar?
Most of the people I like at EITS I've seen already. I'm more excited about the PF one.
but yeah, we could do with an update. I'm hoping for Dan Deacon, Girl talk or some hip hop. Maybe R. Kelly himself (legal scenarios permitting of course...).
They'll show the recent episodes of Trapped in the Closet on the TV channel.
would be perfect
but unfortunately most of my friends don't seem so keen. Still trying to round up a chalet worth of people :(
And the other thing that puts me off is knowing that there are going to lots of scenesters i'll want to punch all weekend... and the one person I REALLY want to see, Jens Lekman, is playing both anyway... hopefully Pissed Jeans will do a UK tour anyway
+ free fun fair at Minehead
+ nicer chalets
Whatever. You know. Hair and tight jeans.
Punch punch punch.
(I'm sorry for inadvertedly insulting you the other day in the Xiu Xiu thread btw)
the pitchfork one is at camber.
ya see if he'd used proper sentence structure i woulda got it first time
(pokey tongue face)
but not much of the line up is actually that exciting, it's mostly stuff I've seen before/people that tour anyway.
I'm excited about the Pitchfork one. The line up is a bit more imaginative and stuff. Sebadoh! Pissed Jeans! Glass Candy! WOO!
So so weak.
are 0% though.
more stuff being sorted out for pitchfork as we speak, some VERY exciting things if they work out! the lineups for both are amazing, clearly.
whilst the explosions one has some very good bands playing, 4 of whom i voted for at the versus the fans atp, the pitchfork one has loads of fairly newish bands hwo have never played the uk. which is more exciting i think.
i can enter to win a free ticket?!?!
i like those kind of contests!
entrance is £140-£150. odds? 1/1!
how do you expect me to have that sort of money??
is it the same company who does tshirt selling for other festivals, like i think it's called 02?, the one who does it for ATP?? if so, maybe i can work it..but it's probs not, eh? :(
I bought my boris tshirt from the woman guitarist. Her english wasn't very good.
No 2 berths, but I'm keeping an ear open for anyone with spaces for you.
so I'm going to neither. YAY!
the line up looks incredible so far, so much more exciting than the EITS one. Fingers crossed that HEALTH and Jenny Hoyston will play (both are touring in May), hopefully Dan Deacon too. Some noisier stuff and hip-hop wouldn't go amiss either.
i hope to share a bed with the boss
Should I still be able to book a chalet for the end of Feb, dya reckon?
but only in the pre-born to run era right?
so i'd go to this if i found the money before it sold out, but after the EITS one sells out.
having said that, this one does have a crackingline up...
especially as I didn't know Bamos was going.
gotta be done.
Or just me hollering tunelessly to Redd Kross songs or pretending to be in Man Man all weekend? because this is going to happen anyway.
Our chalet>>>>>>>>>>>>anyone elses
Why must there be this division? I went to both the May ones at Camber in 2006 and they were both amazing for different reasons.
I'm going to Pitchfork ATP and not Explosions because I don't want to spend that much money.
The two are pretty different in feel now which is great. One in a grotty old holiday camp with fewer people, newer bands and less mainstream names.
And one for me with more mainstream names, less bands with swearwords in their names (oh the controversy), better chalets, nicer pool and nearer to home.
Everyone's a winner!
not the festivals themselves.
The Pitchfork once is deffs going to be more fun. Smaller stages, smaller site, better disco (the Queen Vic one obvs), nicer beach, tastier donuts, scummier arcade - WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN.
