But it's not like he's disabled or anything. Jeff Becerra is paralysed FFS.

Mercyful Fate and Beast in Black would be great.

Have you got the new app? The app you used for last year is now obsolete.

Times are still absent from my app entirely

That's the old, defunct app. You need the new one.

As for me, no times are displaying at all. They do seem to have changed the running order a little though - if correct, Ross the Boss is actually opening the Sunday. Also looks like Resin would be opening the Sophie Stage that day too.

The 'Favourites' feature is all well and good until you get into the arena and find that you can't get a signal

Times are now up, but has things like Aborted playing a 19 hour set from 08:24 - 03:36, so I don't think it's worth relying on yet

Well, the launch of the set times on the app was a bit of a clusterfuck. Looking at the screen shots on Facebook, the set times where all over the place: Anthrax where down to play for 1 minutes at 3:36 in the morning and Aborted where on around 8:25am to 3:30am!

Right now all the set times are blank again.

I feel a bit bad for them, it's pretty embarrassing stuff.

They just announced it again!

If only there was a tried and tested method of communicating something to a wide audience without requiring (but not excluding) the use of smartphones.

We could call it something like the world wide web, and people could connect to it using any number of different clients in order to consume the information!

Sounds daft, don't think it would catch on.

Ross the Boss now back to being a few spots up.

Oh, apparently if you add something to your favourites, then go to your faovurites and select the band, you can see the time on the next page. I suspect that time is meant to dsisplay on the front page too, but isn't.
