Haha, fair point, I just think that this year's stuff is a bit of a random collection of different bands.
I understand what you're saying, I'm just trying to be mean. :p:

I like the lineup tbh.

I'd have been sorted if most genres of music and a lot of bands had appeared on that line-up, is all I'm saying - which probably isn't the case for some! Like I said above, if it's the case that you haven't heard of the bands then it's your own fault because they're clearly big enough to be known. And like I said if it's that you've heard them and don't like them, then fair enough!
(general "you" here).

I'm just getting fed up of people trying to put a downer on those of us who are genuinely excited.
Fair enough. I'm sure you didn't mean it too but it came across a bit snobby, i do hope those who are happy with the line up get tickets and enjoy it though.

I'm just gutted there are no festival line ups that please me when I wanted a festival summer.
Oh well.

Alternative stage though, isn't that really small? Hopefully won't be too packed :/
Not a clue, never been before!

I'm really pleased it's not all really new (dare I say mainstream) bands, I love me a bit of Pulp and Strokes (and Beady Eye and the National.....)

(I'd think it's more snobby to proclaim other people's music tastes as **** tbh like some have been doing, but if that's how I came across my bad - i just get annoyed with people who stick to one genre then get all annoyed when stuff doesn't suit them).

That does really suck - is there nothing even halfway good?

Nah not that'd I'd spend goo money on, lots of little gigs though so its okay. Going Wireless too but only for Pulp.
If Frank Turner was on the Saturday I'd totally go for the day through, shame really.

lol, noobz.

It annoys me when people seem to think the headliners have to be these huge bands that headline every year. If that was how it works you wouldn't have any good new bands coming through and it'd all get rather boring. Seeing Muse headline has lost it's appeal now they're headlining everywhere for the 2nd time round, it'll still be good just not anything special.

Muse apparently going to play a more even spread of material from all albums. Great news.

That's really great news - I like their latest album but it's far from their best.

Provided they stay away from that godawful song (imo!) that they wrote for Twilight we'll be fine...

The V fest gigs were some of the best from the BHAR era. Deadstar and Space Dementia :coma: So lets hope for another good end to the tour.
