Now that its been announced that Gbury is over 2 days this year, with a specific focus on Derry Bands on the friday, I wanted to start a Rumour thread.
Day 1 (derry)
Day 2 (The Rest)
I personally think it will definitely be the collapse of civilisation in northern Ireland, so i am going now to gather some pigs and hens to have ready for when we leave the complex financial system for a traditional bartering system.
I also heard that all the derry bands are alcoholics, and suffer from degenerative hearing diseases.
Excellent news because as we all know 'ALL' Derry bands are class - not sure if they're class cos they're from Derry or from Derry cos they're class but the main thing is that they are all class, all of them
There are quite a few interesting bands, electronic musicians and singer songwriters up here at the moment. I think the music being made here at the moment is alot less homogenous than music coming out of some other cities.
We aren't alcoholics. Thanks.
Also, not all derry bands are class. not all of them. not because they're from derry. just because they're not all class.

that was clearly a joke. But since you are being pedantic, i should point out that Derry will have alcoholics in it, like every other town or city in the UK.
Mine was obviously a joke too because I've heard some bands from Derry that are absolute shite
I'm an alcoholic, I think.
But photocopied music by rentboys head to toe in lovely outfits has driven me to it...I think.
Honestly i think its abit unfair to give bands from Derry the spotlight for the whole of the first Day.
But saying that i'm sure there are enough good bands from Derry to fill the day.
Same goes for the other Cities Too!
Am assuming that Gbury is getting some kind of grant for the CoC thing, which is fair enough. An extra day is all the festival was lacking, IMO.
Well, that and my mate's band.
Also, the craic in this thread? My eyes!

Aye, that is probably true. all of it. apart from the last part... that IS true. i'm away to the pub.
I reckon cos it's over 2 days bands who haven't played GBury before should get a headline slot. Bands like RedEye fer instance :)
Mebbe aimin a bit high LOL
Only noticing this thread now - sorry for not responding sooner.
Yeah, City Of Culture's support is giving us the opportunity to expand to an extra day which we think is a good thing and the feedback has all been positive.
Also, acts playing the Friday night will be from throughout County Derry, not just the city which broadens the scope a good bit.
Don't forget that tickets are on sale now (at last year's prices, no less) and make for great Christmas presents ;)

I love me for starting this thread.
When is anything getting announced band wise?
Would have been easier to say 'when are the bands getting announced?'
We love you too!
Band applications remain open until the end of January with the bulk of the line-up will be decided from that in the weeks and months to follow with first announcements due around March, all being well.
I love you glasgowbury peeps.
And, fastfude is full of alcoholics.

If there is a Friday line up too, what does that mean about camping? It says you can't even get in until 2PM on the Friday.
Does the Friday show not start until much later on, or is the Gbury website in need of updating?
