It all went well. Daughter danced all night and absolutely loved it. It was like looking at my 15 year old self. Loads of youngsters around us which was good to see that the legacy of new order looks set to continue. Never rained at all and got back to the hotel easy on the tram.

Hot chip were very good as a warm up as well. Gutted I missed WMC but seen them before and I am sure I will again.

Be a rebel slotted in nicely and sounded good and not out of place at all. Yes the last part of the set is becoming a bit samey but excellent first hour and always ends well with Temptation.

Hopefully when I see them in London we may get treated to a new track that they are currently working on and a a few changes to the set list. Not sure how many years of touring they have got left in them so got to make the most of them whilst we can



Hey did they say they are working on a new track during the concert or in a magazine interview, I would love to know. Thanks

I must admit i had a great night and really enjoyed the whole day tbh

I'm another who really didn't fancy it at all and was very close to not bothering

Luckily i took a punt and booked the premier inn heaton park as soon as i saw parklife was moved so getting in and out was painless,went in around 430 as wanted to see both support acts

Enjoyed WMC but i think they're trying a little too hard to look cool/uninterested with their blank stares...bar the frontman who acts like a total simpleton...i saw them come off stage and meet their mates straight after the set...all with massive smiles on their faces so why not show it on stage?

Hot chip i enjoyed too

I thought new order were great..was quite near the front but to the left of the stage and surrounded by younger people...i thought i'd made a mistake as they'd probably only know blue monday...how wrong was i they was all dancing,jumping and singing every word right from the off,,,as soon as they was singing the bass/synth lines from AOC i knew i was wrong

Yes the new order set is predictable but i don't really care when i'm there if i'm honest...i even enjoyed blue monday for the first time in years

Only disappointment is the JD encore but that's because i don't really like them,sorry

I was actually hoping for world in motion seeing as england got to the euro finals...sorry again

All in all a total triumph and i'd do it all again tomorrow...even if i spent a fortune and had the worst hangover i've had in a longtime yesterday

I'd agree with that. Might be a function of age, but I thought the facilities were fairly woeful - the bar service being a particular low light. We must have asked 5 or 6 stewards for basic info during the day and no one knew where anything was. God only knows what it must have been like over the weekend with close to 100k people around. We arrived early and left early so were at least saved the entrance / exit chaos.

Gillian mentioned "working on some ideas" (but not a specific track) in the Yorkshire Post interview that you posted. Phil also mentioned in a zoom interview a couple a months ago that something was being worked on but that it was "a secret".

Sorry Linus I may have given you false hope there. It is as per what Andy says above just what I read in Gillians interview and Phil comments. So there is chance, all be it small!

Agree with both comments above. Took my thirteen year old daughter and she loved it. My mate took his teenage sons. Great to see the youngsters there.

Thought they sounded great but didn’t like the festival set up and there were a lot of people there.
