First announcement next Wednesday, 21st Nov
Much better than the previous two anyway - looking forward to the announcement.
Field Day can do one.
I *might* consider going again if it gets good reviews this year.
Hopefully the horror stories I've heard about it consistently being filled with helmets are untrue.
unless it's 2010 and there's 2 people per square foot of grass.
Have been twice.
Thought it was fine both times in general. The talking through acts and it being overcrowded and slightly dodgy sound is true, but i also think it's not enough to ruin the day if the line up is decent
take your positivity elsewhere.
Hot Chip and Kindness playing apparently
Who are Kindness? Never heard of them?
Rest of the album failed to live up to it tbh.
You're not looking at the Australian festival of the same name?
a twitter rumour. Also, the gigsandtours email promoting it said to prepare for the annoucnemt by listening to music from Kindness and Hot Chip on FM radio...
get one facebook for this announcement then?
Bat For Lashes
Do Make Say Think
How to Dress Well
Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion
Charlie Boyer & the Voyeurs
Francois & the Atlas Mountains
Is not knowing about good bands. If you look at some of previous years line ups months beforehand they're immense. I bet some of these guys will be bigger names to us lot come May.
Decent. I'm up for that.
2013 line up isn't very appealing, granted
It was overcrowded, far too few bars/staff, they had run out of cider by late afternoon/early evening, toilet queues were massive and tent sizes too small. All of these annoyances were areas that had been massively improved upon too, so i dread to think what it was like in previous years. That said, i'm tempted to try it again, the line-up looks fantastic already and i didn't find the attendees all that bad. The sound (across all stages) in general was pretty good too.
This is what everyone says every year but it never goes well. The world music additions are great but I'll just hope they play other London shows.
It was a farce. If you queued for the Beer tent, then you had to start queuing for the toilets immediately after, due to the lack of facilities. The Archie Bronson Outfit were asked to turn their sound down, refused and had their set cut short (They were put on a stage closest to residents).
A complete joke. Not been back since.
and it wasn't just The Archie Bronson Outfit who suffered from poor sound either. That said, 2010 was really good fun and last year was good too (although not as good as the previous year, possibly owing to me being ridiculously tired).
after 2011's horrifying mess of overcrowding and terrible sound. got offered a free ticket at the last minute for this year, and ended up having a grand time. may well go again this year, though probably with relatively low expectations.
But after Bloc I swore never to go to another festival based on lineup alone, and I've heard to many bad things about Field Day to risk it.
Not going, again
Probably won't be going.
2012 I had a right proppa good time
will probably go in 2013...
