#2

I will go and see The Roots at Somerset House on July 12th 2018


#3

I will not be going to London for any of those. The Roots and De La Soul should be good though.


#4

I would like to see The Roots or De La Soul.

But not for £50 each, no chance.


#5

Would quite fancy The Roots, De La Soul and Roisin Murphy.

Oh, those are all when I’m at Latitude. Next…


#6

The Roots would be good. The rest are a bit disappointing.


#7

Every year I realise how out of touch I am reading the line up for this. Well, every year for the last few years anyway. Who the hell are Flight Facilities? And LP??

As I say to myself every year, remember when they’d put decent bands like Mogwai on? Sigh…


#8

Tindersticks supported by Emmy The Great.
Belle and Sebastian a couple of times, once supported by The Shins.
The Lemonheads.
Goldfrapp a couple of times.

I’ve been to quite a few others but those above were the best ones I’ve been to there.

Just close the poll and the thread now I reckon. Good bookends.


#12

The best had to be Beth Gibbons (Rustin’ Man), who was supported by Sparklehorse that night.
Feel quite teary thinking about the latter.


#13

Who’s LP?


#14

@Lo-Pan


#15

Luciano Pavarotti (surprise DJ set)


#16

I’m hoping it’s Lee Perry.

You can only pay for tickets with an American Express card!?
