    No Futureheads but some interesting stuff. Roxy Girls are the up and coming Sunderland band and I love a good New Orleans style band.

    If I'm not away I might go and see Northern Sinfonia doing Steve Reich's Triple Quartet:cool:

    Not something I would have said with Seaburn in mind.

    Love a bit of Shostakovich as well as the Steve Reich. Worth going just for that.
  10. I misread that as "the brass band with the best fowl" and got confused :lol:

    Shame that, don’t suppose it’ll make too much difference to the Seaburn crowd. I’ll be at Durham like.

    It was the same day but the music started after the ships left.
    Good weather that day as well.
    Really enjoyed it.
  16. poor line up compared to previous years imo, should have a whip round and get the rest of maximo park there, his solo stuff is pretty awful

    Have to say its the first time Ive been disappointed. I like Roxy Girls but there's nothing else which grabs me. Shame the last 3 have been tremendous. I'll still go and support it though.

  19. Judging by last year's audience, it's a lot more mixed than say a traditional Split Festival crowd so I guess it's difficult to get the balance right. I tend to go with an open mind and hope to be surprised by someone. Last year there was a band in one of the smaller tents, they were possibly Norwegian, and I really enjoyed them without knowing anything about them.
    I was working last year and dotting about between various groups of mates when not working so I'm hoping just to kick back and enjoy the day this time around.
