The Stones were always rumoured but I never saw it happening tbh (see Hanto's post). Mumbling Sons are such a safe/boring booking and Arctic Monkeys would be better suited to the Other Stage imo. Was hoping for a last minute change of heart from Daft Punk Cry

same about daft punk. hoped strokes might play aswell.

cant believe mumford and sons are headlining. sad that so many people like them. they tuck their jeans into their boots! Sad

p.s. i've also known a long time who was playing.

also must remember to post in the dream thread and slip in i am sleeping with a girl.

Couldn't give a monkeys about the Pyramid lineup either way, can't remember ever particularly enjoying anything on that stage.

Excited about Portishead, Nas and Public Enemy but at least one of them is blatantly going to clash with the other as they're apparently all headlining their respective stages.

I quite like the idea of Mumford fans getting down early to get to the front and being subjected to Nick Cave.

Sticking out tongue


dont think the strokes are doing anything which is kinda strange considering they've released a new album.
rumour that dp are gonna show at coachella to support phoenix, but i reckon its gonna be cassius as philip zdar is their engineer/producer.

Yeah and that's what I also meant.

If Daft Punk had played I would really be kicking myself as I need to see them live, as well as the Stones. Here's hoping the new album will bring a tour of sum description. If Alive 2007 is anything to go by, it'll be amazing.

I've known for a while as well. But the main acts this year were supposed to have been Stones, Fleetwood Mac and Daft Punk. That would have been brilliant. Could take or leave Artics and definitely won't go to Mumford. So hopefully NAS is on when either of those two are playing. I feel sorry for whoever has to go up against the Stones mind Laughing out loud

Went last year, its good just seriously hot (40+ every day) the beach is SHIT though on the festival site and the sea bed is horrific for walking on.

Its a good festival though very small you ended getting to know most people after the 3rd or 4th day. Only problem i thought was the main site closing at 12-1.00pm every night and the after party was in the middle of nowhere about 20m away in a car (assuming its the same this year).

Hire a bicyle if your staying in tisno, learn a bit of croation so you dont get RINSED on drink, spent £900.00 in a week (it aint cheap).

Boat parties are really good. Be prepared to listen to 110-115dpm disco for 90% of the time.

It was good but I wouldnt go again, there is so many better ones!

Got the train down few years back lew (10 day interrail ticket, can't be validated in your country of purchase so flew cheap to Amsterdam). Went Dam-Berlin-Prague. Barcelona is way out of the way and would cost you too much time, but plenty of other places you could go via: thought about Budapest, Austria and Venice (you can use your interrail to get a boat from Venice across to Rijeka/Pula/Split for a small additional fee.
You might turn up feeling a bit ragged tho! Smiling
