As Norfolk outfit Bad Touch get ready to play at this weekend’s Ramblin’ Man Fair, Adam Aiken looks back at 2017’s other big rock festival, Download, where another local rocker Oli Brown was among the highlights...A couple of heavy showers last night have left some of last year’s battle-scarred fans looking at the sky with trepidation, but as things get under way there’s no repeat of 2016’s Drownload and the muddy nightmare it became for many. Kicking things off are Blackwater Conspiracy.
And so we approach the end of this fascinating and addictive yet bizarre and depressing presidential race. It's hard to imagine anything so absurd happening again - yet perhaps the saddest thing of all is that things have become so partisan in the US that this could be the new norm.
It's taken them the best part of 45 years to get to Norwich, but Y&T's blistering set is one that only an act at the top of its game could deliver Y&T Waterfront, Norwich It's taken them the best part of 45 years to get to Norwich, and perhaps Y&T's presence at the Waterfront is a reminder that this band's days of being high up festival bills are long gone.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
