im only going Friday, so Tyler is a shame. But not missing being in a half decent spot for Kendrick to see the end of his set. Happy Daughter aren't on too early, was worried they'd be at 3.30ish and have mates who are in no rush to get there too early

I was only at Longitude once, but yeah, it's very small. There is a one way system yes, but if I remember it was more suggested and not enforced.

Kind of want to be up near the front for Kendrick anyway so I'll have to judge it on the day.
Not too long between stages but if you want to be up front for Kendrick you'd want to be leaving Tyler 15 minutes before the end. There'll be enormous crowds going to him from Tyler, and a similarly enormous one forcing themselves to watch the Lumineers to get a good spot. I've made my peace with missing a lot of him to see all of Tyler.

Iirc someone told me there's a one-way system between some areas? Something to do with a bridge over a lake or river in the park.
this is true, it is a one way system over to the heineken tent area (if its still called that this year), you have to take a slightly different route back but it's not the end of the world

Marley park is a nice venue though, mid sized but not too difficult to get around

The thing that put me off last year was the age of the crowd, they were essentially all teenagers, very drunk teenagers. Depends on who is playing though. I'd imagine Saturday will get the teeny crowd this year

I saw Odd Future at Oxegen a few years ago and they were good enough (sound was shit) but ye'd want to all get up the front for Kendrick lads. One of the best gigs I've seen in the last few years was him in at Primavera Porto a couple of years ago.

I wasn't too far from here:

I think I might swerve a lot of Tyler's set as I saw him last year at Primavera. He was fucking brilliant and only my absolute love for Kendrick is dragging me away from Tyler's set.

He must have been clashing with someone I desperately wanted to see there that year. How else would I have missed that?

Saw him at Osheaga in Montreal last year. Possibly the most I've enjoyed a gig ever. That said, I was looking forward to him more than anyone. He was still playing a mostly good kid maad city setlist last year which was great. Not sure how great a certain few of the TPAB songs will be live

Phier or anyone else, have ye been to a place called Sage Beach in Berlin.

Going to a gig called Watergate Open Air there on the bank holiday sunday. Looking it up here and all the reviews etc are talking about the restaurant part, presume there's an open area or something too. Tickets were only a tenner anyway so it's worth a punt either way.

Think i had a work do there once. Badeschiff is nicer 'cause it has a pool.
Won't be a bank holiday here, but it'll be grand· Sundays are the best days anyway.

Ah Pan-Pot.

Its like Oxegen if it had of kept going and descended into scumbaggery at the rate it was.

I seen a few vids of the campsite. Made the Oxegen campsite look like glamping in the alps

Just looking at that too. Security "nowhere to be seen" etc, according to the Sun.

Suns out, guns out wayo wayo.

There's no security at Fusion and it works out just fine.
