    Hopefully they have a decent lineup this year, they have been very active on social media but have felt their lineups gradually get worse each year for the past few years. Great festival all the same but rarely does the lineup give me an urge to buy a ticket.

    Last year was still very enjoyable, hard lineup to predict each year. Loved more of the hip hop approach last year and found many new very enjoyable alternate acts at it (as usual)! Really hoping it's a good announcement, I feel there might be 1 big headliner this year and probably some changes coming with less focus on EP now, although hopefully not too many changes.

    Always enjoy the B&S announcement...

    "Is this really a headliner" type act
    Odd act you never heard of.
    Irish Hip Hop act.
    Left of centre dance act.
    Americana act you never heard of.
    One massive pleasant surprise act.
    Well known among trad fans act
    Weird theatrical act you never heard of.
    Another left of centre dance act
    Afro beat act you never heard of.
    Mother DJs
    Irish Hip Hop act you never heard of.
    Quirky weird out singer songwriter
    African Reggae act you never heard of
    Irish DJ
    Irish DJ
    Irish DJ
    Irish DJ


    ...and then its always one of the best weekends of the year.

    Always look forward to the announcement, followed by my bemusement at much of the lineup followed by discovering some fantastic acts I'd have never discovered otherwise.

    Suspect RÜFÜS DU SOL are returning this year. My girlfriend tweeted a while ago saying she hoped they'd appear on the lineup. They liked the tweet at a time where they hadn't liked any other tweets in a good while prior.

    Personal wish list would include Slaves and Fontaines DC.

    Have been the last two years and really enjoyed it...not going this year :(.

    If the age profile was slightly younger I would consider going again. Felt a bit ould fellaish last year.....probably just me.

    Decent headliners, bit heavy on Irish hip hop which I'm not big on and light on electronic music which I am big on. I'm sure there will be more added but like I said earlier.. Doesn't make me want to take out the bank card and spend €200.

    What I really like

    Marc Rebillet (best act)
    Metronomy
    Sampa The Great
    Khruangbin

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,491 ✭✭✭Ferris_Bueller


    Watching the stream here (just before it cut!) and they said that they are turning the festival on it's head this year and it will be completely different than in previous years.

    Edit: soda blonde there too, dont think they are listed on the website.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,491 ✭✭✭BadTurtle


    Not much there I'm bothered about, bar a few decent irish acts. Will give it a miss I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,956 ✭✭✭Ricosruffneck

  • Registered Users Posts: 382 ✭✭Peterd66


    If last few years are anything to go by, big acts will "cancel' and line up will be less impressive. Never saw a festival like it for cancellations!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 159 ✭✭IspeakcozIcan


    Absolutely delighted with this announcement. So many acts I want to see. Honestly much better than I expected.

    Got the early bird already as I don't go to B&S for the line-up, but this has me really excited.

    Kojaque was the performance of ATN last year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,491 ✭✭✭Ferris_Bueller


    Nialler9 posted an article here, had a couple more acts that weren't originally included like Aoife Nessa Frances, Daithí, Kitt Philippa Kynsy, Nealo, Powpig. Also says in the article that "It’s the festival’s eleventh year, which they are billing as “going back to where it all began” and promising to be “smaller, smarter, cosier, shinier, glitzier”. Would be a bit skeptical about that last bit.

    What was it like last year compared to previous years for anyone who went? The Absolut stage was gone which is usually somewhere I spend a bit of time. Any other changes?

    Reckless In Love was brought back into the arena
    Worked better in the arena for me...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,491 ✭✭✭Ferris_Bueller


    Reckless in love inside. Absolute gone. Dancewise it was fairly soft I have to say. Good but nothing to write home about.

    Place was empty. Good because you had space to walk around in and space and space and more space to camp. I would love to know if they took a massive loss.

    ATN absolutely battered it regards dance music.

    Where was Reckless in Love moved to if ye don't mind me asking? I saw Mother DJs tweet they will be taking over the Woodlands stage on the Saturday this year, wonder if thats a hint that Reckless in Love will be gone?

    What was the Hennessy bar like that replaced Absolut? Was it a similar type of idea? Heard it was packed to the brim one night and they stopped letting people in, maybe the night it rained.

    ATN definitely gets better dance acts than B&S no doubt about it, but something about B&S is more fun or something, very light on electronic acts in the announcement tonight mind.

    Well you'd imagine they would need to get a good crowd this year seen as they are by themselves having gone from EP.

    Reckless in Love was basically in the same spot as where Absolut used to be, except a bit further down the clearing and kind of on the other side of it, if that makes sense.

    If they’re moving back into the woodlands, that would be great because I loved the years they were in there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,585 ✭✭✭✭MJohnston


    curious if they left themselves or weren't wanted?

    The announcements at the time were very much that they didn’t see themselves fitting into that festival anymore.


  • Registered Users Posts: 382 ✭✭Peterd66


    Examples please?

    Examples please?


    Santigold, princess Nokia , songbhoy blues, off the top of my head.

    Both Santigold and Princess Nokia cancelled because of a family bereavements. You can't really complain about that.

    I'm happy with the line up so far, it's better than I expected and I'm glad that we got the early bird tickets this year


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,501 ✭✭✭PabloAndRoy


    Interesting lineup. Marc Ribillet really caught my eye. Metronomy always good live. A fair few in there that I don't know as usual. Will probably go for Marc Ribillet alone. Sure its always a good weekend*.

    Apart from the year it rained badly.

    Yea it was very empty last year. It was short a few thousand people from capacity.

    This years lineup is looking soft on dance music too. **** ton of hip hop :mad:


  • Registered Users Posts: 525 ✭✭✭llatsni


    Lineup looks great! Best in years.
    But I’d also like to see some full-fat electronic acts added.

    Tourist, Christian Loffler, Maribou State, Bicep, Gidge, Rival Consoles, Max Cooper, Parra for Cuva, Sohn, Forest Swords, Leon Vynehall... any of those would fit in real nice methinks.

    Edit: quick scan of RA says they’re all free that weekend too!!!

    I really hope they're holding back on electronic stuff an announcing a collab with AVA or someone similar like ATN do.

    Bicep are too big for B&S these days unfortunately, they have sold out shows in Belfast(2 nights) and Dublin(2 nights) close to the summer.
    Max cooper and Leon Vynehall playing AvA festival at the start of June as well.

    Reckless in Love stage still has be announced as well in May and it's pretty much all electronic acts so that's still to look forward to.

    I've put Tourist, Gidge and Maribou State on every one of those after festival surveys they email out asking what acts you'd like to see.

    It's the first year in 5 years I haven't bought a ticket the second they went on sale but any of those bookings would prob make me buy a ticket.

    There's a group of us that go every year but by Sunday afternoon last year we all wanted to go home because we genuinely felt unsafe. Saw too many fights, the fences from us and you were down, so many people robbed around us etc.
    I know some people didn't experience anything like this but just by Sunday the security didn't seem to care at all.
    Would definitely like to know how much smaller they're making it and what glitzier newness they plan on bringing, I'm sad it's not in my calendar (yet.) !
