Terrible festivals - 2019 edition


#41

Thought Soul II Soul were better than this.


#42

So Brexit.


#43

“Karaoke freak show!”


#44

“Curated by Jo Whiley”. Shudder.


#45

when someone clarifies that their DJ set is a ‘party’ DJ set you know you’re in for a wild ride.


#46

curiousity got the better of me and oh my fucking god


#47

Really? What part of the last 30 years of their career have you not been paying attention to?


#48

That DMA’s band are comically shit


#49


#50

End of the road


#51

Are Two Door Cinema Club a Sheffield band? No way they’re bigger than the Manics or Rag n Bone man, is there?


#52

I would like to clarify that I couldn’t care less how many doors their cinema club has.


#53

Nope, they’re from Bangor in Norn’ Iron!

But I think they have a huge following of under-25s who got into them because they were pushed so hard on the last decade of R1’s indie shows.

Weird how I Can Talk seems as familiar as Mr Brightside or Take Me Out but didn’t even make the top 100 back when even Scouting for I don’t want to live on this shittwatarsebastarding planet any more Girls got to number 1.


#54

I would be interested to see how Babybird approach these festival slots. Do they just play ‘You’re Gorgeous’, ‘Goodnight’ & ‘Cornershop’ and bugger off or does Stephen Jones abuse the audience then play ‘Bad Old Man’ to total silence?


#55

Quite sad to see how Tramlines has turned out. Even when it stopped being free, it still had a really interesting line-up. It seems moving it out of venues across the city and into one big area has changed it entirely unsurprisingly.


#56

Is this ironic? The lineup looks like a DiSer’s dream!


#57

Underwhelming


#58

I suppose it lacks a box-office headliner.


#59

Bands you were amazed to discover were still a thing #534: The Rifles
