It was meant to be done for Radiohead but I heard in the end they stopped checking for IDs as the queues got too long - they did check at the start. I imagine that wouldn't be the case in a place like the Olympia (smaller venue).
I went to see Radiohead in the US and my ticket was only issued...
FF confirmed as going ahead today (though back to a 2 day festival).
Makes you wonder what place would EP have this year.
All the festival promoters are interlinked anyway (e.g POD does FF which also has a stake in EP, MCD have a stake in EP/Latitude/Oxegen etc..)
