Festivals 2012 - any plans?

124 posts in this topic

I was looking at Wilderness: [url="http://wildernessfestival.com/"]http://wildernessfestival.com/[/url] has anyone been?

I love the line up at Bloc, but ideally I want to get out of London, do a bit of camping/outdoorsie stuff.

Change of plan from Glade by the looks of it, think I'll be going to Boom festival in Portugal.. it looks so chilled out! Has anyone been before?

I think I'm going to make an effort to get there to see the JBs. Shame it's not the south of France though.

Let me know if you do go. I'll be there all weekend with the family but I'm sure I can make time to have a pint of purity with a fellow 'murkker if you fancy it.

I'm probably doing Bestival (GREG WILSON 4 LIFE) and Glade; I was tempted by Bloc, but it's in central London this year, and I don't think I can hack a multi-day festival in the city. If I go home to bed, I just won't bother with the next day - you need the half-sleep of a tent to keep the momentum going.

Have you seen the announced Sonisphere line up. Queen featuring some guy who came second on American Idol as the singer :facepalm:

The missus wants to go to that for Faith No More. We've already seen them twice in recent years :facepalm: I'd like to see Mastodon again, and Andrew WK though.

So far the list is for this year is looking like Download, Optimus Alive in Portugal and Reading. End of the Road is a strong possibility, but I dunno if I could do it after the session that Reading normally involves.

Exactly, which means they should leve it alone, not use a American Idol reject to cover Freddie.

I really want to go to Primavera, but I imagine I'll be too poor at the time.

The Jeff Mangum ATP weekend looks awesome, but again, it's a chuffin' pricey weekend of boozing is ATP festival. Looks great though.

End of the Road always looks good, but they're doing another festival in Nottinghamshire this year called No Direction Home, which is shaping up to be okay.

Oh, that is nasty from May and Taylor. They might get away with something like that at V, but there should be no place for Adam Lambert at a rock festival. I can't take Queen seriously with a lead singer who's younger than me. It shouldn't be allowed.

I'd rather see a Queen tribute act than this botched reforming, it's just sad.

Howjamean?

We're planning on bringing enough Gin to drown in, pre-mix it in 1ltr/1.5ltr bottles and carting it around most of the day.

Add Buckfast and Super Tennants to the mix...

Well I've booked my flights, transfers and ticket for Boom Festival in Portugal! I doubt it will be of any interest to most of you mind, but one huge plus about this is that it's a 7 day festival around a huge lake in the middle of summer so it'll be hot hot hot - excited doesn't even cover it!

Queen are a pop act loved by our mums and aunties so its hardly a huge surprise to see that they are now fronted by a pop singer known from a TV series loved by our mums and aunties

Come to Mostly Jazz in Birmingham. He's one of the 'curators'.

I went to Glastonbury last year and Global Gathering the year before. Both were decent.

I'm eyeing up Bennicassim and/or Ultra Music Festival in Warsaw this year. Decisions :x

Fuck.

Mostly Jazz it'll have to be.

I'm taking the family (we go every year). It's across the road from my house. If you or Art or anyone else wants to have a pint of Purity let me know. Also if you need any local knowledge. Can't put anyone up as I already have a friend coming up for it.

Parliament/funkadelic. In Moseley. :panic:

I'm going to A State of Trance 550 in Den Bosch on the 31st of March and I'd like to do Sunrise festival in Poland sometime this year but it depends on funds and finding a job when I finish Uni in June. However, more importantly, I've recently been booked to DJ at my first proper festival at the end of June which is the Xstatic Summer Festival in Derbyshire, so I'm over the moon about that. Line up is pretty good too!!

Got myself a Bestival ticket a couple of weeks ago. Already a great line up, but it just got a hell of a lot better now a certain Mr Stevie Wonder has been announced as the Sunday headline.
