Terrible festivals - 2018 edition


#281

Don’t talk to me about heroes
Some of those men sound like Suggs


#282

Have Ought ever written a song as fun as Murder on the Dancefloor though?


#283

A friend regularly shows me their recent songs and they’re alright. Nothing groundbreaking, but alright. Good songwriting. Certainly nothing with as much cringeworthy forced quirkiness of Let’s Dance to Joy Division any more.

I remember seeing a woeful festival set to make it’s Brighton debut this year but forgot it’s name

I hadn’t heard much since I saw the poster on my facebook feed a month ago
It’s been cancelled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’

#286

It’s for a good cause but that’s an awful lot of money for a festival full of cover bands


#287

Second stage would have been a solid lineup in 2009.


#288

Foo Forgers :flushed::joy:

#289

Have we had any festival cancellations yet - feels like we must be in the zone now?


#290

Apparently the singer from Foo Forgers used to be the drummer in Nearvana


#291

would watch an indie film about this


#292

Me too. It’s a hit waiting to happen


#293

Anvil meets Spinal Tap


#294

Disappointed I’m not there, now


#295

this thread is making me fully lose it :'D


#296

All festivals are a bit shit now aren’t they?


#297


#298

Further up this thread someone mentioned the Reef/Wildhearts/Terrorvision/Dodgy tour. I therefore feel obliged to say that I attended it at a packed Digbeth Arena in Birmingham on Saturday night and had an ace time. :slight_smile:

(OK, Reef weren’t all that)

Really hoped Towers of London were a dream, but there it is in black and white.
