"The event was scheduled to take place on 6 July at Nobles Park with a line up including Primal Scream, Paloma Faith, Johnny Marr and Laura Mvula."

Heh, Mulva.

Not exactly a 150 quid bill, innit?

I knew a guy in college who was from the Isle of Man.

If you wever want to royally piss off someone from there, call it "Man Isle" or "Man Island". Drove him nuts, like he'd seriously get upset. So naturally we'd say it all the time.

my family is from there. my brother and aunt live there. i've never heard anyone call it either of those things.

I've heard they are going to try and re-schedule it, and hold it on the Isle of Lucy instead.

All music festivals eventually sh*t themselves out. It usually happens from marketing people given too much power and turning it into a commercialized farce.

I remember last Summer seeing the Aspen Jazz Festival book Kid Rock as their headliner. I could name hundreds of other examples, but it would depress me too much thinking about it.

Exactly what I was thinking. Perhaps it was BECAUSE of Johnny Marr there were poor ticket sales.

Intoxoman: What were they expecting with that line-up?


Ticketmaster to create a time machine to 1992?

I'm pretty sure that's the point: calling it "Man Isle" or "Man Island" would be incorrect and probably not what someone from the area would ever do. Such things have a propensity to irritate the locals, like saying "Frisco" instead of San Francisco.

ah. got it. yeah, i suppose it would grind my gears if somebody purposely got the name of my hometown wrong.

I thought the last festival hit a new high in altruistic, self-indulgent, bullshiat, mollycoddled mother-my-dog instinct rock and roll. I thought it was the worst kind of pimply shiat of the worst kind of city ghetto probably populated by winos, junkies and general all round fark-ups.

I'm not sure about the music festival, but the motorcycle race they have there is  awesome

What, the spontaneous combustion incident?  That was decades ago.

I believe the PC term is "Isle of Person", subby...
 
2013-06-25 12:21:51 PM
I was trying to make some kind of smart remark involving "Isle of Girl", but then an Elton John song got stuck in my head.

Maybe some Nickelback will dislodge it.

I blame the music festival being cancelled due to the Towlieban.

Looks like this music festival didn't have three legs to stand on.

That is the worst greenlight I've ever seen here.

But does it piss you off when you read that?

Who would wantto pay to see this when you culd go to the Wacken Open Air festival a month later? Much better lineup.

Isle of View too, Man.

just got back from the TT races a few weeks ago; locals were saying there were more people there than there have been since its centennial year in 2007...unfortunately, this music festival is like the kid sister to the quarterback brother in the world of entertainment..

As a locale, Isle of Man seems about as useless as anyplace else. But mention the TT and rabid motorcyclists from across the globe openly fight for airline seats. I've always wanted to see it in person but have had to settle for magazine articles and (later), pirated broadcasts.

What I meant is that it's not a huge destination of worldwide tourists on its own, but that race is world-famous. I wasn't trying to insult it...was more trying to illustrate how nuts international motorcyclists get when the Man TT is mentioned.
