Really with the sighs and mehs? I love this line-up. Just at first glance, there's Elvis Costello, HAIM, Portishead, Chic, Public Enemy, Tom Tom Club, Toro y Moi, Cat Power, Django Django, Michael Kiwanuka, Solange, Nas, Sinead O'Connor and Lucinda Williams.
This would be a fantastic companion piece to Coachella; tons to see at both, and virtually no overlap between the acts I'd be most excited to see.
There are a lot of better European festivals. The Stones and Primal Scream are great, but other than that, I'm not too upset about missing out on tickets to this.
So Phoenix headlines Coachella yet only plays the John Peel stage here.
Not bad, but i am not too bummed about missing it this year. 2011, though, still stings.
Note that Bill Wyman is billed on the acoustic stage.
You're going to a festival not a concert . 1 and a half hours out of an entire weekend shouldn't be the judgement . Yes the Stones are one of those gigantic bucket list acts , they are also quite old and might put on a terrible show.
Whats really cool as all of you know and are all aware that because of how enormous Glastonbury is and how many different areas there are at Glastonbury (Arcadia, Greenfields, Shangri-La, The Common, etc) and how there are people from all walks of life in attendance, that the lineup really doesn't matter in order to have the absolute fucking best time of your life.
It's basically like saying you don't want to go to Burning Man because you don't like some of the DJ's playing.
Could live forever at the Other Stage ... and Crystal Castles headlining John Peel? Yes, Vagina, there is a Santa Claus.
I sighed because I wouldve enjoyed going. Lots of fun to be had. But theres always next year..
There are a ton of volunteer opportunities to go for free like this one:
The volunteering requires a 250 pound deposit.
Portishead, The Orb, and Leftfield are the ones I'm jealous of, and we got Leftfield two years ago.
Primal Scream as well.
Anyone else notice that Arctic Monkeys are first? FUCKING HELL YES! they deserve it.
First means nothing. They bill headliners according to the day theyre headlining.
And fucking shit, Daft Punk added.
btw ... resale is this saturday night @ 1am PST (9am GMT).
