Terrible festivals - 2019 edition


#61

Would watch Arnocorps.


#62

And presumably Mortishead are a troll core tribute band to Bristol’s finest?


#63

Entertaining


#64

(I’m slightly obsessed with Amplified Festival. Let me know if you would like links to the “documentary”)


#65


Bloody good rep.


#66

The Bluetobes were never boring and still aren’t boring, and I still love them. Saw them recently and thought they were ace.

Admittedly if you were expecting the Bluetones but got a Mark Morris solo set you might be underwhelmed a bit, I guess…


#67

lol is this real?


#68

Are these real bands or was this drawn up in the Sugar Ape office?


#69

I thought it was at first, but theres no way that Holy Goof and Lil Baby are real


#70

‘Honey Dijon’… ‘Not3s’… ‘TBC’ lol


#71

When you don’t recognize any of the bands on a festival line up it doesn’t mean the line ups shit, it means you’re out of touch with what the kids are listening to these days.
I bet there were 50 year olds moaning about the 90’s R&L line ups too.


#72

Yeah I was going to say I have no idea if this is terrible or not. Headliners look about what I’d expect for Reading I think. I went to Reading when I was 17 and a big part of the experience was just going between the stages/tents and checking things out. Not sure it matters too much if not all the bands are amazing.

I was going to then insult Tramlines and the britpop ones but I guess a lot of people my age will enjoy them so fair enough I guess.


#73

Bands on that lineup that I know for sure are shite:
21 pilots
the wombats
you me at 6
twin atlantic
post malone
a day to remember
bastille
the story so far
bowling for soup

pipe down

edit: that came across a bit harsh, should have added a safetywink


#74

I’m not normally one for wanting the ‘good old days’ back but I do wish festivals were how they used to be before every fucker puts one on. So many bland line-ups. You get a handful of good bands in the most average shit that only people that listen to the radio like.


#75

This is an improvement on last years Reading imo with Anderson Paak, The Distillers and house band, the Foo’s.


#76

Enjoy TBC at Reading, pricks


#77

No less than FOUR Enter Shikari sets though


#78

My little sister is VERY excited about this so I’m happy.


#79

I’ve not knowingly heard a track by any of those artists on the Saturday line-up.

Where do I swipe my indie points card?


#80

No problem with Flotsam and Jetsam. Struggling with all the fonts, though.
