Depeche mode, toots and the Maytels, inspiral carpets, royksopp, 2many dj's, wailers, macca B, the Specials, Justin Robertson, but tbh, you always sort it out, so what do I know?!

Folk the system, Levellers, 3 daft monkeys, hobo Jones and the junk yard dogs, ferocious dog, new model army, Tim Minchin, dokovi kolective, stiff little fingers, wonder stuff, Newton Faulkner, doozer mcDooze, gaz Brookfield, barsteward sons of Val doonican, fox and the pirate, Brian stone, meds atomic dustbin, sisters of mercy, placebo, green day,

Pretenders, Garbage, Louise Distras, Skinny Lister, Idles again, Muncie Girls (young band), John Otway, Attila and Barnstormer, the Cure (in my dreams), International Teachers of Pop, Human League, Halestorm (rock).

Neds Atomic Dustibin (I couldn't come the year they played) and Sultans of Ping FC. Basically if I only saw them all weekend I'd be happy.

It simply has to be the The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican - so many missed out this year as the Woodland was full up. They really deserve a repeat or even better..... a main stage slot. You know it makes sense ๐Ÿ™‚

Something brilliant and new. Itโ€™s discovering new stuff at festivals for me. Rolling out big overblown names is the death knell of festivals where the crowd changes and the feeling goes. Keep it fresh!

Echo and the Bunnymen, Stranglers, The Skids, Gary Numan, Wildhearts, Frank Turner, Urban Voodoo Machine (please can they play every year ๐Ÿ˜‰) thanx

Please please please no psytrance. It's the Midlands, we play funky deep house. And The Beatles, as zombies.

Half Man Half Biscuit, The Wildhearts, Black Thorn, a few people have said Duran Duran and I agree they would be interesting. Chas & Dave, Terrorvision

Burning spear / steel pulse or another big roots reggae headliner for the pallet. Leftfield & more dub & drum and bass in magical sounds (the mad hatterz takeover has been great last couple of years)! Malabi tropical (fantastic Israeli band please check them) and The Hatstand Collective (brilliant original psychedelic funky rootsy blow ya socks of fusion of wonderful people and musicians, please check them out) for the Maui Waui stage, would go down a storm โค

Leftfield, Orbital, Faithless, Afro Celt Soundsystem, The Waterboys, The The, Johnny Marr, Julian Cope, and of course the Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican (can these be an annual fixture now guys?)

Pizzatramp, counting coins, popes of chillitown , wonk unit, Matilda scoundrels, inner terrestrials, faintest idea , captain hotknives, random hand

Would love to see Terrorvision, The Trees, Bon Jovi need to come over, Ferocious Dog, Sari Schorr, Sound of the Sirens, the list goes on but most definitely my new favourite Datura Roots Collective!!!!

Vintage trouble, reverend and the makers, bar steward sons of Val Doonican, Sweetchunks band, Funke and the two tone baby, levellers would be brilliant. Wi have a good time whatever the line up though

Those DJ's in the woodlands on the Thursday before Jon McClure were fantastic. Place was bouncing!!!! So, Greg Wilson, Joey Negro, Kenny Dope, Norman Jay, Crazy P, Horse Meat Disco for more of this feel good genre please ๐Ÿ™‚

Without sounding rude I pay for my tickets to get surprised by your amazing band choices. My favourite festival of the year because you choose bands I wouldnโ€™t so Iโ€™m leaving it to the experts

Bands for the main arena stages and Convoy Caberet (acts for Magical Sounds & spoken word tents to follow): The Horrors Toots and the Maytals Hawkwind - on the Pallet Stage Sat night! Nik Turner - in Convoy Caberet Friday night! Billy In The Lowground on the Woodland stage, Sunday afternoon please First Aid Kit Mogwai Underworld...with Iggy Pop if possible please! Wilko Johnson with special guest Roger Daltrey The Wonder Stuff Public Service Broadcasting (tbc, need to listen to their latest album) Plus, if possible... Late night chill out area(s) playing ambient and/or dub reggae sounds in one or two of the new spoken word/theatre tents, thanx!

Rev peytons big damn band, wonk unit, samantics, unknown era, L7 (I can dream right?!), mr tea and the minions, the barsteward sons of val doonican (because it wouldn't be bearded without them), doozer mcdooze, skinny lister, yur mum

The Pixies, Violent Femmes, Echo and the Bunnymen.....oh and Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican.....whoever you get will be good. Never had a bad line up. Always something for everyone and someone new to discover. Keep up the good work.

Sisters of mercy, adam ant, pop will eat itself, emf, wish hounds, Noel Gallagher, my bloody Valentine, johnny marr, hyperjax, shed seven, thousand yard stare, house of love

I think you pretty much get it spot on every year. Something for everyone's tastes. A tad more rock would do nicely though.

Dirty vertebrae, ferocious dog, holy moly & the crackers, gaz Brookfield, mighty mighty bosstones, skunk anansie, bar steward sons of val doonican, bloodshake chorus, wille & the bandits.

Left two out: Don Letts DJ set Thursday night to get the ball rolling... The Whip - their set Thursday night on the Pallet Stage at this year's festival was cut short owing to the traffic problems (IIRC their drummer got onsite late) and only fair they get another crack!

Gong, Steve Hillage, System 7, Levellers, Pulled apart by horses, sounds of the sirens, red hot chilli peppers, UGLY KID JOE that's all for now ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Warpaint are awesome ! Alt-j are a great sounding band at festivals.... Crazy P.... Baloji were good at Bluedot festival.... thereโ€™s loads !

Anyone still waiting for a PayPal refund? Yep! Overdrawn now to the max! Because duplicate tickets bought and Bearded Theory accepting no liability! It's your frickin festival man! Get a grip!

Seems the school, has Sold out too, and is there no option to book family camping this year?

Added 3 tickets to the basket at 09:00, did the Capcha then was told they were gone. Now at full price. Did all these go to people who paid deposits?

Early bird not available at 9.00.....oh my word that was quick! Literally seconds....

Joy Wylie, Joe and I bought our tickets! Joe managed to get early bird and I had one in my basket but it froze and disappeared so had to pay full price ๐Ÿค” But, we're going again!! Xx

woohoo! Got mine, see you there!

Got ours ๐Ÿ‘

Got ours! Canโ€™t wait!๐Ÿ˜

Can't believe the early bird tickets went so fast. Got tickets but at full price!
