Okay fair enough but are we saying that £25 is not a good deal for two days of music featuring all those bands?

Be fair guys Glastonbury was free the very first year and has gone up in price year by year ever since!

£25 still seems like a good price to me, how many other festivals have that many bands for the same price?

The Horrors are worth £25 on there own so hot from me!

I played Primary Colours to death but live they couldn't cut it for me,

my live letdown of 2009.

I supported Doorly and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool not too long ago around the country.
Pretty decent line up for £25.

It'll be interersting to see how the newer acts will cut it live such as I Blame Coco and Lissie (Trulli).

Good to see a nice spread of acts but its a shame some of the headliners like Tinchy Stryder will attract the 'wrong sort' of people who will spoil things for everyone.

EDIT: Just spotted Dawn Landes on there - very nice!

ive not heard of any of these bands! am i too old?

whats the booking fee? it must be added to the price of the deal, if it's an essential cost of purchase/getting your ticket.

ie, similar to buying a payg phone, with mandatory top-up cost which must be included.
#9
No I don't think you are mate. They aint main stream. Probably up and coming talents.
#10
Some pretty big names there, would say they are pretty well known, but would attract some of my least favorite people!

Booking fee is £2.00 per ticket, plus £1.00 delivery fee per order, as far as I can see - so remarkably cheap by usual ticketing standards!

i've edited the title to reflect the booking fee.

Yeah that's put me off - potentially lots of angry young jobless types 'representin', yo' and stabbing everyone.
Muse at Wembley was spoilt a bit by loads of gimps kicking off and pushing everyone as 'The Streets' were supporting - then they all left when they finished, before Muse started!

Voted hot anyway.
#15
Cold from me. Used to be free, and now they charge more every year and theres worse artists every year. The only decent band there is Shikari tbh.
#16
Dananananaykroyd are one of the very best live acts around at the moment, they're worth the £25 alone!
#17
seems like a reasonable price for a couple of days of entertainment
#18
Agreed the only decent band there are Enter Shikari, all the others are shocking

Surely you're not too old to remember Donavan?

I'm knocking on a bit but De La Soul are well before my time.

THANK YOU. How can people complain with De La Soul and the Horrors adjacent? That is incredible variety! The Horrors last album was probably the best of the year.

No phun intended.

Strangely enough, there is a bar called Fleet Street in Newcastle City Centre, just next to Local Chronicle newspaper offices.:)

While taste is a very personal thing, the range of artists on here suit the old, young, trendies and hipsters.
I may take issue with some, but there's some family fayre on that line up like Paolo Nutini.
Personally, I'll probably be raving to Fake Blood ad Andy George & Jaymo!
#28
Dont forget folks, this doesnt include any parking or camping site (as there isnt one) so factor in the price of a hotel (if you arent local) and the funds soon rack up.

It was great when it was free, and the acts then were a damn sight bigger/better than the ones from the last few years - but as usual, the idiots spoil it for the rest so they slap a ticket fee on in an attempt to stop the undesirables (who would never 'pay' for music) coming along.

For those that havent been, I urge you to go along to the cluny/cluny 2 - two fantastic venues.
#29
I know you used to be able to buy the tickets from the HMV on northumberland street, you can save £3 that way!
#30
Line-up looks really good IMO. A lot of the acts there could soon be holding their own in much higher priced concerts.
#31
Enter Shikari went to my school and live just around the corner from me
