I feel cheated... how long ago did MCD know that The Coral were playing Bestival on the Isle of Wight the same weekend as this??

Its a disgrace, as long as supergrass and travis turn up ill be happy, was really looking forward to seeing the coral. And yes Lid1978 sure they knew , interesting that they still havent said anything and dropped all mention of the coral on the festival site when the tickets were sold out.........

Who could they possibly get at this stage of the same calibre? I'd love to see Roisin Murphy back there. She was fantastic last year and I saw her again in Benicassim this year... Class act. There are no dance type acts in the line up which is a bit of a bummer.

It is all very disappointing - poor organisation.
Let's hope the atmosphere is like last year, if so it should still make for a great weekend.
I will keep an eye on your (excellent) blog for updates...

Just got a call from MCD as I had mailed them to complain. It seems that they tried to get The Coral to play Saturday instead as they were booked for Bestival on the Sunday but couldn't arrange equipment etc to be transported to and from in time. Their spokesperson Leslie said there was nothing MCD could do about the cancellation and will be announcing Starsailor as a replacement.

wow what a turn around actually wouldnt mind seeing them, so the coral couldnt bring equipment , and where would they be able to find some equipment at a festival??

Thanks for the info you leg end
