How soon before they played did you go into the crowd?

Could a really lovely, beautiful person post the stage times for Saturday. I can't get the app and for all my searching can't seem to get all the info another way. If there's too much to post just tell me to get stuffed and sort out my retro phone.

We got there around 3pm through the general admission in'12 and it was rammed and by the time the band started we were about 200 yards from the sound desk very disappointing sound...but Wolverhampton the week before made up for that!

Just wondering if anybody has been in the premium view area via the west entrance before, guess I'll find out Saturday as We'll be there in the queue from 12:30! :D

Well tickle me pink, thanks a lot. I've confirmed I'm useless on the internet.

Just checked out Blur's support acts...ugh awful!

Guess that's the state of modern music...I was at Knebworth for Oasis (who I was pretty unimpressed with live despite all the hype), support acts for their own gig:

Chemical Brothers, Ocean Colour Scene, Manic Street Preachers and The Prodigy (who were awesome that day)...bit different lol.

Agreed it's not the best bill, but Drenge and Teleman are both really good for those that are early. They do clash though, so I'd opt for Drenge.

It's the gap between The Horrors and Blur that I'm having trouble with. Other than Roots Manuva, is there anything else worth seeing?

I still think they were both gonna support Blur but BST got greedy and split it over 2 nights. Not that it worked.

I rate Metronomy, pretty neat band. Fufanu were also surprisingly decent from when I saw them support Damon at RAH.

Blur's support acts are not as good as The Strokes' (Beck and Future Islands, holy shit) but they're not that bad. I'd rather see The Horrors than godawful Ocean Colour Scene :mrgreen:

Blur wanted Beck as a support act but he'd already confirmed to support The Strokes before Blur were confirmed.

That would have been much better. How the Strokes are headlining anyway, God alone knows. It should be Beck!
