    I think day tickets are still available, and Foo Fighters are headlining that day. Rest of the lineup is pretty sick too (The Horrors, Tribes, The Gaslight Anthem, et al.), might be worth it.

    Too true. Friday is probably the best day of the lot IMO.

    The Black Keys are awesome!!!! I'll probably be working when the festivals are on Fingers crossed they decide they like England loads and end up touring the country.

    LOVE THEM
    but no - they're doing Reading and Leeds in August and they did a tour in february so I doubt they'll be back for at least another year.
    I don't mean to have a hipster moment, but as it was quite soon after they gained a lot of momentum the concerts were mainly full of people who knew of their existence before El Camino, they still managed to sell out arenas though - I saw them in Nottingham and it was packed! Best gig I've ever been to, definately go see them next time they tour

    Yeah, I concur (if you're referring to Leeds), although I initially only bought a ticket to see The Cure. Not too long to wait now.

    A day ticket for Leeds is a bit expensive but you do get The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Gaslight Anthem, Eagles Of Death Metal, Pulled Apart By Horses, Polar Bear Club, Bullet For My Valentine, Gallows and Trash Talk.

    :headbang:

    Plus a lot more.

    The ticket itself was 40 quid, so the gig was definately worth that.
    Because it was really far away (was at uni on the Welsh coast and gig was in Nottingham) I spent another 40 on getting there but was going to the gig with a friend who I hadn't had the chance to see in a while and was staying with my best friend who was at uni there and who I went out with after the gig.

    So yeah, worth it but travel costs only so because I was doing something else as well

    Hoping it won't be too much longer than a year till they next tour the UK :/ they've done a fair bit here recently and they're an American band who're popular over there too so might not be back for a while.

    (also - I'm the crazy type of fan who gets a band tattoo so was always going to spend loads on seeing them)

    The friend I went to the gig with had actually travelled to Amsterdam to see them before

    The Cure are the stand-out act of the whole weekend for me. Should be an amazing set so I hope you enjoy! I was going to go but there just aren't enough bands playing over the whole weekend to make it enjoyable for me.
