I don't understand the flak MCR are getting. I don't think that they should headline either, but the same **** happens every year. In '10, Arcade Fire ahead of people like The Libertines, Weezer, Lost Prophets.... It happens. I think '09 is the only year in (relatively) recently history where I don't think anybody could have argued with the headliners/2nds. Artictic Monkeys/The Prodigy; Radiohead/Bloc Party; Kings Of Leon/Kaiser Chiefs. IMO '09 was one of the best lineups in recent history, but each to their own. '08 had good headliners/2nds too.
Oh and finally - is this the fourth year running that enter shikari and crystal castles have played?
I'm finally gonna be 18 for a festival. It's going to be inevitably messy.
I agree with whoever said about Paramore not being great last year. I saw them play the main stage at 11am a good few years ago (before they were famous) and I was totally blown away by Hayley, hence becoming a fan. 6(ish) years on I was really disappointed by them. I was on the barrier and getting squished in anticipation of blink but I just felt they came across badly - as if they weren't bothered about being there at all. xx
I have my weekend ticket, obviously, just wanted to go early to beat the rush and stuff but didn't manage to get one yesterday :/
Thanks in advance!
