Really? Major changes or just tweaking of times? Assumed with the actual time slots on it it'd be legit.

day splits are right, times aren't quite and they've fucked up Despacio

Yeah figured they'd messed up Despacio alright, but I can't see myself being in there apart from just a glance to get a look at the set up so wasn't bothered

So this has probs been asked already but anyone got any shouts for potential hidden gems in the lineup? Not necessarily obscure, just someone who mainstream bores like me wouldn't have heard of....

To give a rough approximation of my taste; the main priorities for me this time round are Future Islands, FKA Twigs, The War on Drugs and Tame Impala (though they're on the Sunday night and may be clashing with Florence, so I'm in two minds about that one). Others I'm thinking of catching are Grace Jones, George Ezra, CHVRCHES and Intepol (though I've seen Interpol twice before and saw CHVRCHES before too, so wouldn't be the end of the world if I missed them).

So based on the above (or ignoring all of the above and just throwing something out there), anyone have any recommendations?

I'm telling everyone to go see Ho99o9. Dreadful name, but aside from that their live shows look mental. They could be this year's Young Fathers on the Body and Soul stage. Or they could be a complete disaster. But it should be worth a look.

This playlist has 3 songs by loads of the bands. Good way to get a taste for each of them. Based on what you've said above I think it was Dawes that I found that you might like. Hinds as well.
