Ik probeer een dezer dagen es in mijn archieven te snuisteren; we vinden die Seaside-locatie wel. Mocht je mensen kennen die op facebook zitten, kunnen zij via die weg misschien ook al es de vraag stellen bij de organisatoren (dezelfde mensen die enkele jaren terug de documentaire over The Sound in de Post in Oostende hebben vertoond)

Betreffende locatie Seaside festival... ik zou het niet meteen weten, moet ik zelf ook es opzoeken. Er is wel een facebook groep van de vroegere organisatoren van Seaside... die mensen zullen je wellicht sneller kunnen helpen. Zelf zit ik (niet meer) op facebook.

Dear Sir, The reason I edited the shows that you just reverted was because as I am going through my Cassettes of Live concerts and trying to update your web page as I convert these to Digital format. I have a physical copy of everything I have edited.

Hi Dirk, I'm not going to argue with you about Aynsley Dunbar, but the band existed from 1968 to 1970 and there are plenty of pics and references to them playing Amougies online. I wasn't aked by the site to provide references, so didn't even think to do so. Here's one example: http://www.zappateers.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=371358&sid=96ea6df5935ee9fe398294738454571e

Ah. Actually, all EC acts already had that medley assigned to EC&SN, except for EC solo. All I did today was move the EC stats too.

It looks like that particular medley was first performed by EC & The Confederates though, so I considered moving all to there. However I didn't in the end, as the EC wiki wouldn't let me easily work out if this was in fact true.

This is a grey area, and I haven't found anyone else agreeing with me (except for PhilipeLandry) on this. I like the idea of grouping all performances of the same mwdely. Unfortunately, a cover tag is the only way to do this (I haven't really explored the new mod medley feature - would this address it?). This works well for EC examples, who plays the same medley across many of his stage acts. Another good example is a medley The Beatles used to play (I can't remember the name), and many tribute acts perform the same medley (and other artists as regular covers too). It would be great to be able to group these, but for a very long time it hasn't been (officially) possible.

What did I do? I've just spent a few hours working on his stats.

Dag Dirk,

ze streamen dit weekend alle Zomerbar-concerten op de website van Proximus Pickx! Hier heb je de link: https://www.proximus.be/pickx/nl/festivals/rockwerchter/live


Hello Dirk,
thanks for your answer. When I read the discussion in your link, the solution suggested by pomes27 is “[translated title] @Cover[Bob Dylan] @Info[French version of (original title)]”. Your change was "(translated title (english title) @Cover[XYZ]".

Hi Dirk,
you changed today "Je veux te graver dans ma vie" in Johnny Hallyday setlists into "Je veux te graver dans ma vie (Got to Get You Into My Life)". Don't know whether this is correct as in all youtube videos I saw he only sang French lyrics. But it's ok.
The reason for my complaint is the following: Normally when moderators make a batch edit, I don't get a message. But today I got nearly 450 emails. Is it possible to go back to the old way, that moderators can do batch edits without sending emails?
Thanks in advance,

Re "Just wondering why you created a completely different edition of the Glastonbury Festival here https://www.setlist.fm/festivals/glastonbury-festival-4bd63b76.html  . I'm sure you're aware this festival exists already 50 years.
If the venue is a stage or a bar on the site of Worthy Farm, this shouldn't be listed seperately since we don't use the name of different stages for a festival. If it's a bar in the centre of the city, you need to ask to delete this edition of the festival and link it to the one which was organised already several times."
Ok, have had that festival entry removed.

Thank You :-) Stay Safe!!!!

I've started editing all your requests. Thank you

Writing to request you take a look at this forum post and weigh in. https://www.setlist.fm/forum/setlistfm/website-support/artists-residence-is-lockdown-live-stream-location--ok-to-keep-private-33d7b0fd
Artist is doing live streams from home. I had listed the location as Private Venue, Devon(County), England since the Artist has ALWAYS stated their home location as Devon in England, never specifying the village. For seven years in thousands of interviews and articles with the Artist and his celebrity spouse, as well as on these live streams “I’m at home in Devon", I’m at my home recording studio in Devon”. The U.S., UK and European media have also only ever named their home as Devon since that’s what Artist states, per the EU privacy laws/GDPR.

pomes27 found one gossip "article" on a Devon news site listing the name of the village vs 837,000 other web search results that list just Devon. pomes27 changed the venue location and when I asked to revert back to Devon, per his suggestion I posted in the forum for other Moderator opinions.

I understand that these livestream setlists are already an exception to the normal site guidelines but I’m requesting to respect and maintain the privacy of the Artist that the press also allows, and list the location for the live streams as Private Residence, Devon, England. If the Artist or spouse ever publicly identify the village then I would update.

Thank you for checking it out if you have the time.

The virtual BXBW festival was May 2020 as listed, utilizing (in this case) recordings from December 2018, at a time when such an event is otherwise not possible.
Does setlist disregard all events where artists appear to a pre recorded performance?
I think to list 'virtual' events by established artists, doing so to support the future of live music, is valid.

By disregarding 'virtual' gigs during lockdown for which attendees are invited to pay to participate, you are not really entering into the spirit of what the bands and promoters are trying to achieve at this unprecedented time. Surely its inclusion would be a valid record of the artists attempt to maintain some inertia at a time where it is otherwise impossible.

Definitely was an oversight on my end, I don’t remember seeing the venue on the site but I just looked at the poster and it says “First Presbyterian Church Concert Hall, San Anselmo, CA”. Sorry about that, I’ll change it.

Moonalice document and archive all their gigs on their own website:


You might enjoy seeing this poster below. We already have this show recorded here, but it's the first time I've ever seen a poster for it:


It turns out that the section of the guidelines I was talking about is still there, I just couldn't find it!

"Note that the same additional information for all shows of the day is not a valid identifier. So always be sure to note which show was played at what time of the day."

I hope this makes sense?

Thanks for getting back to me, I have seen your new edit just now.

I didn't follow your original source link. Online sources can go offline or move to new URLs. We should try to summarise any found information information in a structured and consistent fashion on our database.

Unfortunately, "@Info[two shows]" isn't really good enough. You should differentiate between which is which. I like to imagine it as a brand new user searching for a show they remember attending 30 years ago: all known information should be as obvious and easy to them to see.

I think that there used to be a section in the guidelines about differentiating between multiple shows on a single day with an @Info tag - it looks like it has been removed in preparation of the new set times feature. I'll post in the forum to check with Michi about what to do in cases when we don't always have information of doors and stage times - hopefully this can be added to the guidelines before the set times feature goes fully live.
