Any cheeky little announcements to whet our appetites before tickets go on sale on Thursday,  Walter?  Woof! X



Thats a bit left field Walter! 

Or could it be Robyn???

From a comment on the Facebook page PJ Harvey looks likely.

"There, inside the garden. They kissed and the sun rose."

6 Music have just announced PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams and Future Islands as the headliners. Also mentioned Conor Oberst, Michael Kiwanuka and Field Music.

Any love out there for Dirty Projectors?

Just spent a couple of days revisiting the back catalogue ahead of new album.  Can't stop listening to Swing Lo Magellan.  

Please please please

THE MOUNTAIN GOATS are touring with Jason Isbell in USA in June and July. 

John Darnielle has just tweeted the details and said "it's a lifelong dream for me to play the Beacon" . 

Now some people may think he means the Beacon Theatre in New York but maybe it's the Brecon variety of which he speaks .....

Would that it were so ... hopefully Jason will let them know that the main stage is already named for them and awaiting their attendance.

In a recent interview Ezra Furman's response to the classic "what advice would you give to your teenage self?" was "listen to the Mountain Goats..." - a nice endorsement.


The Hapoonist & the Axe Murderer
Israel Nash
St Paul & the Broken Bones 

seen all the above this year and would love to see them at GM, and I know its wishful thinking but would love to see the likes of Arcade Fire there as well....ooooo and Vintage Trouble

No insider information.

I tweeted them a while back about Neal Casal, RA and GospelbeacH, and both started following each other and a few likes were thrown around.

Yesterday Beachwood Sparks came back on the scene so I asked GM about the possibility and they rsponded by saying "not this year sadly but but there may@be relevant news next week"

Could be something?



and BS 'back on the scene'?

look at me frantically googling now


and they can have future fucking islands

straight swap

Hmmm Mogwai announced as a headliner for Festival No. 6 - was hoping they might be a Far Out headliner but maybe they're a bit too big for that. Interested to see what we get in the announcement next week.

They headlined the main stage in 2012 so I doubt they'd downgrade. Green man have been retweeting Ride, potentially following the Slowdive - Lush trend of far out headliners 

Well, here's hoping that Pumarosa being added to the Spotify playlist means that they're in tomorrow's announcement. They'd be near the top of my request list.
