YAY January!  Time to get excited about the festival announcements and really look forward to – oh



I’m already booked for this one:



Not overly excited about the line-up at the moment but there’s more to come.  Cardiff has something similar but they’ve gone a bit more diverse with their choices:

I’d just like a ‘we heard Passover and decided to start a band’ festival. 

I got sick of the faff around Desertfest so skipped it last year but could be swayed for 2019:



Any booked?  Anything tickling you at the moment?

I'm going to Womad for the first time. Can anyone confirm it's going to be wall-to-wall 55 year old accountants shuffling awkwardly to Afrobeat?

I'm going Supersonic and Primavera. Can't wait for both and just hope the wanker-Brits-abroad-to-seeing-awesome-stuff ratio isn't too high to spoil the latter. Carly Rae Jepsen, Robyn, Stereolab, Shellac and Avalon Emerson within 3 days has to be hard to completely ruin.

I could get into Glastonbury free, but I get so burnt out at that thing that I can't construct a full sentence after the first day (and I have to turn up almost a week early).  Maybe West Holts will draw me back in.  Got to let the dude who gets me the tics know soon.

I know that sounds like the most wankery first-world problem ever, but the last couple of times I went I ended up spending hours just staring in the vague direction of the Tor wishing I was there instead.

Primavera's got the line up to beat this summer. It's chocka.

Off to Glastonbury as usual.  Line-up's already shaping up to be better than 2017.

You're feeling Supersonic?

Not forgetting that as well as having great music Supersonic is an absolutely lovely experience with a lovely crowd (well it was the time I went).

Bevis Frond!

Most of the top end of the line-up is out of the top drawer, but I'd definitely be checking out Rosalia, Sons of Kemet XL, Kali Uchis and CupCakke (if shes well enough to play)

Cheers. I’ve got a new speaker so just shouting things at it to play. Listened to more new music in a week than have in years.

Rosalia in particular is something special.  Obviously the likes of Robyn and Carly Rae Jepsen should also be dope.
