Is it bad that I'm relieved that Radiohead are not on the bill?

I'm holding out for a dedicated Radiohead headline show in Ireland at some stage.

LCD will put on a great show.

Animal Collective are unreliable, plus new material is shite.

Anything I've seen of Jack Garratt would have me run a mile.

Lana Del Ray is the Sam Smith of 2016. Sell tickets to the hotpants cocktail brigade.

I actually dont think its a bad lineup. Broken Social Scene, Haim, Wolf Alice, SFA all good undercard acts. Its just nothing special either. Still think theres another headliner to come. Not Radiohead though, if they had them they surely would have announced them.

Youd think Radiohead would be in Ireland at some stage though. Theyre playing everywhere else. Maybe at Marlay Park?

radiohead haven't announced any UK standalone dates yet. we live in hope. i'm just praying they don't announce something in june while we're away, or there'll be tears.

Sure neither was Sam Smith.

Compared to the initial lineup last year its got decent headliners and big sized acts, not many names in the undercard though.

Found it:


Florence + The Machine
Underworld
Manic Street Preachers – Róisín Murphy – Tame Impala – Hot Chip
Belle & Sebastian – The War On Drugs – George Ezra – Future Islands – Jurassic 5
Chvrches – Ride – Jon Hopkins – Battles – My Morning Jacket – Jessie Ware
Django Django – Low – Pond – Tourist – Metz – Girl Band - Kwabs
Låpsley – Alvvays – Marika Hackman – Jack Garratt – Wvyern Lingo – Circa Waves
Hinds – Shura – Ben Khan – Curtis Harding – Aquilo – Little May

Id say looking at that Last years was slightly better. 9 more bands too.

Happy enough with that. Haven't seen SFA in a while. Might be a run out for my 1996 tour t-shirt. LCD and New Order are good headliners. Undercards a little thin but I guess where most of the future announcement will go. Depending on the stages and times I might go see BSS, Avett Brothers and Savages too.

Jusging by the reaction of the facebook commentariat this line up will hopefully turn away a few of the shittier crowd members.

I prefer this years. Until they added Blur I was fairly uninterested last year.

I'm hoping Suede get added at some point. That'd be enough, and maybe a good hip hop act.

Today I had to google 'digital penetration'. For a second there I thought Adam Johnson was having sex with his phone.

Haha just seen some teenage lad dancing down the footpath opposite my house. He clearly thought no one was watching as he seemed to hear someone behind him down the road and stop suddenly before walking off.
