Looks like @Tuna has already replied on my behalf.


#24

That will give Field Day some competition for sure.


#25

Yep, would be lovely if they all showed up at primavera.


#26

New additions


#27

Something about this lineup that just doesn’t sit right with me


#28

Too much dancy stuff that isn’t really dancy. Not sure festivals need to be booking django django and justice in 2018. Nowt to sink your teeth into.


#29

The person running this sounds nice


#30

A bit of context always helps - stage times, layout, etc., but it’s an odd mix


#31

Allie X! sweet!


#32

The creative for this festival is so so ugly


#33

What a surprise, a rich man from Southern California is a Republican!


#34

This lineup is a bit of a mess actually, isn’t it? Lots of stuff that just… doesn’t really fit together. Field Day and Primavera for instance manages to get the right balance of guitar/dance/trendy stuff but this just looks like they’ve got someone in who’s never booked a festival before. The undercard veers a lot towards the dance end, while the larger acts are more indie.


#35

I think he’s great, but at a mid-afternoon set at a summer festival DJ Richard is going to go down like the fucking Bismarck.


#36

I think there are going to be quite a few acts like this.

It sort of seems to be emulating Field Days of old with the dancey vs indie mess (as @iaminterested rightly points out). The proof of the pudding is in the eating, but can’t help but be a little confused.


#37

Justice’s current live show is one of the best things I have ever seen.


#38

Has it changed since last summer? Because their 2017 festival appearances were as dull as dishwater.


#39

Different strokes I guess, they were a real highlight at Glastonbury last year and their Brixton headline show was even better. Where did you see them?

Primavera (Porto).
