Most festival lineups in the past five years are interchangeable and indistinguishable from one another.

i feel like the promoters arent even trying here

a) if I were sorry enough to be one of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, I'd be quietly devastated by this poster; b) I'm amazed at the low billing of Jessie Ware and Modest Mouse.

Simon H., Friday, 20 February 2015 00:09 (three years ago) Permalink

Modest Mouse (the only band on the bill i like) have never had any hits in the UK

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 20 February 2015 00:10 (three years ago) Permalink

Charli XCX is also really low.

Van Horn Street, Friday, 20 February 2015 00:12 (three years ago) Permalink

Hard to justify Jessie Ware being any higher on that bill. There's a couple of things I'd see on the Friday and the Saturday, but the Sunday looks pretty dire.

It wasnt like that when it started in Strathclyde Park, Hamilton.

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 20 February 2015 00:59 (three years ago) Permalink

Sunday night line-up on the first T in the Park, Strathclyde Park July 1994:

Primal Scream
Del Amitri
Teenage Fanclub
Crowded House
The Saw Doctors
Gun
Grant Lee Buffalo
Baby Chaos

Id rather see Primal Scream headline T In The Park over Primark Scream who headline this years.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds headlining over The Prodigy? #scotland

the prodigy headlined in 95 (was amazing). the next year they played about 3rd on the bill so in daylightdespite having had #1s and being huge. I forget if it was Pulp or Radiohead headlined that day. (i saw Leftfield instead of Radiohead and Afghan Whigs instead of Pulp)

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 20 February 2015 03:04 (three years ago) Permalink

Leftfield finished about 20 mins before the curfew time so i left early to get a taxi up the road (was too knackered to walk 15 mins up the hill ) and i walked outside to the surreal site of 200 riot police in full kit. Nobody else around. Apparently a few hours earlier some motherwell casuals had crossed the park to try burst their way in. (half the park is in Hamilton half is in Motherwell and TITP was on the Hamilton side)

the Kink Festival in Orlando last year had a solid 1-2 punch conclusion of Gojira and Mastodon, but the rest of the lineup was...

Puddle of Mudd
Nonpoint
Devour the Day
Crobot
Islander

the Puddle of Mudd show was so embarrassingly bad. at one point Wes (the lead singer) went on a weird (probably substance-inspired) rambling monologue, and then he says "so I talked to my mother this morning" and my friend yells back "and she said 'make sure to lock up when you come in tonight!'".

also they did a limp dicked cover of War Pigs god I wanted to murder em.

but seriously tho I know Mastodon/Gojira have a wider appeal than other metal bands but who the fuck thought pairing them with nu-metal acts that nobody likes anymore was a good idea.

oh and hardly anybody showed up until the last two bands, apparently the festival was a huge bust and did poorly financially

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Friday, 20 February 2015 03:12 (three years ago) Permalink

what a strange kind of festival to have gojira and puddle of mudd. I suppose mastodon have softened a bit so possibly could have fans of both but....

Never heard of the others.

Eric Burdon & War, On Drugs (Cosmic Slop), Friday, 20 February 2015 03:15 (three years ago) Permalink

Nonpoint are having some kind of resurgence apparently. they opened for Megadeth and they had a fuckin' street team at the show (wtf is this 1999).

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Friday, 20 February 2015 03:17 (three years ago) Permalink

weirdly heartened to hear that puddle of mudd are still going

Guilfest wins this title every year but yeah, for a festival as big as T in the Park this is wretched.

Gutted that Wireless, which is around the corner from me, has leaned EDM this year. Kendrick and Nicki Minaj are playing, but Avicii and David Guetta are headlining. Clearly this is the summer of the EDM hacks.

Minaj moron (Re-Make/Re-Model), Friday, 20 February 2015 11:36 (three years ago) Permalink

I keep forgetting that people like The Script and Twin Atlantic (a) exist and (b) are huge. Only on ILM would anyone be surprised that Jessie Ware and Charli XCX are low on the bill.

New Prodigy single is the worst thing you will hear at that festival or at least joint worst.

what's with all the bands having preplanned album sets. I mean I know this is a thing now and I've seen many shows like this and have no objection to the format, but the choices for the album are a bit weird. ie why aren't Deftones doing "White Pony", I know people like "Around the Fur" but it's pretty far removed from who they are as a band now. I realize "And Out Come the Wolves" was Rancid's commercial breakthrough but it isn't as if it sounds that different from their other albums, a mixed set would be more fun from them.

Offspring performing Americana? fucking terrible album! at least when they did Smash in its entirety last year it was fun to relive all of the songs that got me excited as a 13 year old.

Mostly tho this poster looks like it was pulled from 2003.

re: Rise Above Fest, Butcher Babies are one of the worst bands I've ever fucking heard. There are plenty of phenomenal female-fronted metal/rock bands out there that are making great music. This one insults the audience by pretending these bands don't exist and presenting female-fronted metal as a novelty, solely playing off of the hotness of its two leads, while playing generic nu-metal that sounds fresh out of 2001.

I would go for Slayer, Bad Religion, Descendents, All, Buzzcocks, Flogging Molly, Coheed (fuck off), Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Melvins, Fear Factory, Down, and Propagandhi. not a bad lineup at all.

It's in Iceland though, I doubt the population can support multiple large festivals aimed at multiple demographics, even if they are all hugely into music.

Glastonbury alone is like half the size of the entire population of Iceland.

I would totally attend a concert in Reykjavik to see Slayer, Stormzy and Gucci Mane in quick succession. Speaks to me as a family-type popular concert, and I'm not surprised there'd be Icelanders who're able to dig all three. I have strong doubts about the names below though.

Drawing on inspirations from classic funk bands and present day electronica, Funkadelic Astronaut blends the best of both worlds to provide a unique sound that they call “Funktronica”.
