festivals you're planning to see this summer
« on: April 22, 2007, 10:17:35 »
this subject has been popping up here and there so i thought of putting up a thread of it is own for.

since not all of us can hop on the plane and get over to  fuji rock festival to see the man himself, then we're going to need to find some substitutes, to kill our summer holidays etc......
so where are you going? paying a traditional visit to your good old favorite festival ground where you've been every year since the beginning of the times? or maybe checking out some new happening somewhere?
or maybe travelling somewhere a bit farther just to see something that you'd say is worth travelling for?
let us know - and moreover, give us recommendations (or warnings...) of any great band line-ups -- who knows if some of us would get an urge to get there, maybe we were already planning to spend some of our holidays somewhere in the neighborhood.

also, you can post some experiences from earlier years if you wish.

as far as i've decided, i'll be going over to here:

http://www.myspace.com/ankkarock

just to see NIN. the rest of the line-up for sunday there is pretty dreadful (for instance ' the ark' from sweden... uh-huh: they are the ones presenting sweden in the eurovision song contest this year... what was that?? eurovision song contest? well, ok....). so to be honest, it's going to be a looong day...

anyway, since it's a pretty small festival with mostly finnish bands only so my jaw really dropped when i heard that they got NIN. it's not a big festival even in terms of finnish summer festivals.
+ a good thing is that it's not very far from where i live.


By the way, have you seen the line up for the Sziget Festival in Budapest?  8)

now i have... oh, i see - some good bands in there too  :smth023
i assume you'll be going there?

by the way, the 'hammerworld stage' makes me laugh though: they're have kiling joke and negative on the same stage....
negative: i mean didn't you say you really fancy that 'tokyo hotel' kind of "gothic glam rock for teenage girls" kind of hosers??   :roll:
 :lol:

So far I'm set to attend the Sasquatch Music Festival (Day 2) http://www.sasquatchfestival.com/ at The Gorge in George, WA.

Some bands I plan to see...and tape  8)

Beastie Boys
Interpol
Spoon
The Polyphonic Spree
Bad Brains
The Dandy Warhols
The Black Angels

Seattle has a yearly performing arts festival called Bumbershoot that takes over Labor Day weekend.  This year's line-up is looking pretty weak and I'm not sure I'll be going.  And I live 10 minutes from the site!

Ah, and I'm a finalist in a contest to win tickets to Lollapolooza.  Not holding my breath to win this, but it sure would kick some serious ass  :rocker

they seem to have "a couple of" decent bands there (pearl jam, iggy, interpol, muse...)
- wouldn't be total waste of time to go over, i guess...
so, good luck with the tickets!

...and how about in 2008?


well, to be honest i don't even like going to festivals, i like it less and less the older i get: you are forced to watch all kinds of shitty bands, the good bands play short sets, the audience is mostly noisy, possibly very drunk and about 80% of it seems to have ADHD. etc etc.
anyway, i might seriosuly consider this:

as they have porcupine tree and interpol listed.  :smth023

If only MCR would be added to the bill I'd just have to join you for this festival.  My life would then be complete  :smth044

oh crap: porcupine tree's on friday, interpol on sunday! nothing at all on saturday.
i wouldn't want to buy a three-day ticket because it's a rip-off (100 euros) but buying two tickets for two separate days is even more expensive.
aaaah this is why i hate festivals, really! (one of the reason i mean)

saturday was a fun day after all. some crowd action from saturday afternoon:



"beautiful" indeed. :)
the singer called us "ye bunch of f**king crazy badgers!!!". :P :lol:

i'm generally not into folk stuff but this was an amazing live band, i have to admit. a must see. i've rarely seen several thousand people going so absolutely nuts (in such a joyful way!) in a matter of seconds and staying up there for over an hour.
