Sunday on the Main Stage

Final day of the festival, and here’s the artists appearing on the main stage (reverse order of appearance):

  • Goldie Lookin Chain – never heard of them, so are they worth a gander?
  • Scissor Sisters – No questions here. I WILL be catching them (Mike would never forgive me!)
  • Franz Ferdinand – Probably one of the big draws of the day, why are they on so early?
  • The Thrills – nice album but not sure how it will transfer live, not too fussed if I miss them.
  • PJ Harvey – OOPS not bought her new album yet! First lady of rock, live? You bet! (Anyone for a repeat of THAT Glasto pic?)
  • Kings of Leon – one of my albums of last year, not sure how they will be live.
  • Pixies – Errr… I know I should but .. well I’m not actually that bothered.
  • The Strokes – Headlining. Really? Two good albums, a good sound but again I’ll probably be at the NME stage for Massive Attack.

So Sunday on the main stage consists of Scissor Sisters, Franz Ferdinand, PJ Harvey and maybe the Kings of Leon. As I already feared, Sunday is the day where I WILL have to miss an act I’d like to see.. there’s just too many!

Of course WHO I catch depends on the running order, as I’m pretty sure that the Main Stage and NME Stage try and stagger starting times. This may mean catching half of an act here and there but it’s better than nothing. Later on I’ll post the bands I’ll definitely be trying to catch. Who knows, I might even blog from the event itself!

(Anyone know of a PDA version of Blogger? There used to be one but it’s gone now…)

Saturday on the Main Stage

On to the BIG names then, the ones who score chart hits and have the “true muso’s” frowning at them. So, in reverse order of appearance:

  • Big Brovaz – I was intrigued by their first couple of singles but seem little more than a novelty act at the moment.
  • The Beta Band – Every part of me says I should love this band but I just can’t. I don’t know why, please don’t hate me.
  • Black Eyed Peas – One single later and they ‘went global’. Hopefully they’ll do some stuff from their back catalogue but I doubt it. Could be good live though.
  • Pink – I liked her Missundastood album but haven’t heard her latest. Not sure about her abilities to sing live though, probably one to skip.
  • Faithless – Yes Yes YES. Say what you like about them, they have enough anthemic tracks to carry off a festival performance. Looking forward to seeing them live.
  • Starsailor – First album was good, second album was the same as the first. Probably one to avoid.
  • The Charlatans – last minute arrivals doing a greatest hits set. That’ll be short then. Not a fan, will happily miss them.
  • The Darkness – whilst no replacement for his highness of Bowie, I actually think they might be alright. If you take them as a tongue-in-cheek act then they could be fun. I’ll probably be watching Muse though.

So it looks like the main stage will feature only lightly for me on the Saturday. Faithless being the only MUST SEE band for me.
