I can't believe this line-up! Obviously, there's one huge omission from it but there is always a next time, who knows  :?

Ok I'm gonna say it.

I haven't listened to a single song (save calling all the heroes) by any of these bands but I surely do feel like I should have.
From what I can gather, this is a helluva festival for proggers.

But where to start?

I like dark, and electronic. Rocky but not too cheesy. I can do soft songs but they have to have an edge.

Any suggestions? :twisted:

EDIT

Rubbish, I saw Pallas at High Voltage and quite enjoyed them  :lol:

my personal recommendation would be not to listen to the Saturday bands   :lol:

My favourite is obviously Tinyfish and being that they are led by a Godfrey, I would start with them.  Then Magenta.

Do not mistake the John Mitchell It Bites for the 80s It Bites.  (Though I guess they might do that song) Tall Ships was not exactly my cup of tea at first but after seeing JM do some of the songs many times at gigs it has kinda grown on me.  I have preordered the new album that they will be playing on the night.

Ordered! Sunday is an absolute cracker although I don't know any of Mars Hollow's stuff. Bit more mixed on Saturday but still worth going.  Subterranea is my favourite IQ album so that's a must! Rather went off Pallas after the way they treated Alan Reed & wasn't that taken with the last album but I'll give them another chance!  Not that convinced about the Tangent - when they followed Frost* at Summer's End in 2008, I went to the bar with other Frosties & Dec! 8-)
Come on, you\'re a lion!

Note: I think that the poster is slightly wrong, in that Mars Hollow will be on before Magenta on the Sunday.

It is indeed right not to confuse the two line-ups of It Bites but I have seen/heard them do the vast majority of the 80's IB stuff and jolly well too. It's right they should focus on the new stuff and I can't wait to get the new album.

I too didn't like the way Pallas treated Alan Reed but I bought the XXV album and I've seen them a couple of times since. It is  well done live but arguably lacks a little character (hmm...actually, pun intended! :mrgreen: ).

I was luke (puns ahoy!) warm about the Tangent when I saw them at Summer's End '08 (it was rather confusing with so many on stage...BUT at SE '11 I was luke hot about them. In the cut down form, just four of them with the amazing Luke Machin on guitar, I could have watched them for at least another hour. Andy Tillison seemed re-energised in that setting.

The Sunday line-up is pretty sweet. I don't know the band that I can't helping reading as "Marshmallow" but I hear good things about them. I hope their inclusion on Sunday doesn't "squeeze" the timeslots of the other bands too much (curfew and all).

I would be happy to watch the Saturday lot, but we can't be there that day. So, let's have the Day tickets Nellie!  :)

I was originally just going to go for Sunday but has I'd have to travel up on Saturday anyway to be there for the start on Sunday I thought I may as well get a weekend ticket and go up a bit earlier on the Saturday.

Me too. Tickets ordered and Monday off work booked. I can't wait  :)
btw the word on the IQ forum is that they won't be doing Subterranea as the venue is unsuitable.

I will be there. You just try and stop me. Everyone else should be there, too.  ;)

I will also be at the warm up gig Tinyfish are doing as a double header with Dec at the 12 Bar in Swindon on Friday the 6th... http://www.tinyfish.org/gigs/gigs_front.htm ...if any of you fancy a third day out on the RAWK tiles.  :)
