Terrible festivals - 2019 edition


#121

What a tune this is


#122

Oh yeah I must say that I bloody love James - remind me a lot of being a kid and hearing my brother playing them loudly from his bedroom. GBOL


#123

Yeah the best of came out during and soundtracked a very formative year of my life so I’ll always have a lot of love for them. Definitely the outlier on that lineup imo


#124

Aye, when I got to see 65Daysofstatic, Rolo Tomassi and Future of the Left for free. I got really sun burnt then got the burn kicked in a mosh pit. Precious memories


#125

Three really good bands, a couple that I’d look at but probably wouldn’t love (Nash, Go! and Joy Formidable), and a bunch I don’t know. Doesn’t make for a terrible festival…

Would go to the Friday.


#128

Don’t think I’d even heard of Two Door Cinema Club before this thread


#129

You have been blessed before now.


#130

I just listened to their two top songs on Spotify and they were both on the playlist when I worked at TGI Fridays so my earlier post was a massive lie

It’s inoffensive I suppose

Edit: wait the top THREE songs


#131

Maybe to you :wink::smile:


#132

A festival exclusively for people who think that living in Southsea is a personality to Instagram themselves at.

Had the WORST time watching the Flaming Lips there a few years ago.


#133

Ash below Starsailor is weird and kinda bleak


#134

or Ash below one bloke out of …BASEMENT JAXX DJing :man_facepalming:


#135

Feel like Vaccines playing third is a bit of a comedown for them, too. Weren’t they headlining the O2 only a few years ago?


#136

They did when they were getting played on Radio 1 all the time yeah. They’re definitely at a ‘still weirdly popular with young people despite not really doing much of note’ level like The Wombats/Two Door Cinema Club and will probably stay that way.


#137

Why so bad? I live fairly near and was tempted to go and see F Lips.


#138

That lineup’s fine. Not brilliant or anything, but perfectly serviceable for what these sort of things are.


#139

I’m disappointed at the lack of properly terrible festivals this year so far. Had some absolute stinkers last summer.


#140

Reckon the fact that so many went under/lost money over the last couple of years means you’re getting less of the ‘throw darts at a list of bands’ line ups.

Like there are loads that I wouldn’t go to but most of them are semi-coherent and have some thought put into them (other than tramlines which is a complete mess as per)
