    Bahnhof Strasse Free the Sepsis Six!

    Oh that's terrible. Saw that a kid had been hit by a bus and killed, the very worst thing for any parent :(

    As for the fest, we're not 100% sure we're going yet. There's still a strong possibility, but much will depend on line-up this time.

    Voley Knees Up Mother Earth

    They're doing a one day thing at The Eden Project this year too. Not my thing but it might be cheaper/easier to do than a whole weekend.

    Beautiful Days lineup, or most of it, now announced.

    [​IMG]

    Manics have underwhelmed me for ever, but it's not all about biggest-stage headliners** tbf ....there's plenty of smaller acts that I really like .....

    **All the same, what's this with waiting until June for the Friday headliners??? :hmm:

    You'd ban yourself from 74.6% of all festivals that have ever existed ever**, if you wanted to avoid them!! ;) :p

    **In a made-up but realistic statistic :D ;)

    Contractual reasons most likely... they are probably playing elsewhere (probably at a price where it would work out better to go and see them at BD) and so have to wait until that gig is done before they can announce this one

    Kaka Tim Crush the Saboteurs!

    dub pistols - another band who play every festival i ever go to yet have not one decent song. and the singer always comes across like a right nob.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    I think it's a licensing condition of most festivals these days. Either dub pistols or gentleman's dub club play or no licence issued.

    It might have something to do with one of the band/organisers losing his son FFS
    So what? Do you always go to see them at every festival you go to?

    It might be, but it happens quite a bit at other festivals too - often for the reason I stated. No need for the FFS, I wasnt being unsympathetic

    There's always been bands that play the festival circuit. It's a good way for them to reach a wider audience and a lot of the time the bands get to do the festival for free too. I don't get the animosity. The beauty of most festivals is that there's usually something else going on elsewhere if you don't like the band on one stage

    Animosity. :D

    I was clearly joking.

    It probably says more about the type of festival I go to, tbh.

    :D

    Sorry, I have a soft spot for the Levs and BDs

    Animosity was probably too strong :D But a lot of people do seem to get unnecessarily annoyed about it

    Dub Pistols and Gentlemen's Dub Club both played at the last festival I went to a few weeks ago and I enjoyed both of them (although Gentlemen's Dub Club is a bit vague :D)... I bought a ticket to go and see Dreadzone yesterday too :thumbs:

    And now you're quoting the wrong person. Shall we all start again?

    Damn - you've edited
