Indeed! I've been agitating for a layout change for some time - this is much more logical.

The white print on the coloured panels is a little hard to read in dodgy light, but I won't complain!

To play it safe, i'll say most bands end at midnight.


To play safe I'd say one band plays till midnight for 4/5 days and none are scheduled to play after 11:45 on Monday
There is more synchronised start/finish times across the different tents, still doesn't make it any easier to decide which acts to see and which quality shows have to be missed
This is a superior user-friendly display ~Thanks Admin.

Recommend using someone else's colour printer to print this.
I think the colours are going to get confusing by the end of the evening.

It's looking good!!

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

It's that time of the year when the "official program" is going to be out soon. I think last year's program was vastly better than the previous year's program. I still rolled up with my own program laid out the way I like it. It was different from the official ones but the same in respect that you could see at a glance start and stop times and when the clashes were happening. So I had mine and my 2 sons used the official ones. To sit down in our camp chairs at our campsite in the clear light at the start of the day the official programs were really quite easy to read. However, each night as the night worn on they kept asking to look at mine because the official ones were harder to read. They had too much colour. They looked really nice but coloured panels over background colour in poor light is not good mix. If they had had even got rid of the background colour they would have been much easier to read. I think the only way to road test the program admin, is to print it out, go to the pub for a couple of hours one night when there's a band playing, enjoy some drinks, and keep going outside into the poor lighting of the street and see how easy it is to read. If you want to send me some money to cover expenses, I'll be happy to help you do the road testing.

as someone who was against the app. for phone a few years ago...but who used it last year...and found it really useful because it is backlit and easy to read...I hope the app will be up and running again this year.
especially since I have a new phone with a bigger screen.:d/

I still favor the rhythms mag for the big picture.

I too found the 'Official Programme' hard to read because the background was too dark. I downloaded the app and found it to be different to the official programme. I do however prefer the official programme as it is easier to comprehend with the layout.

I thought the app was really good, but also had my own custom print out of the proceedings for each day in a format I found easier to use than the official one. Would be good if the app is updated.

Not out yet for this year.
You will have to wait until all the announcements are made and the final playing times are published.
