    As I get older, I'm starting to really love the idea of music festivals, especially the ones with camping. I guess I'm a hippie at heart and yearn for something like Woodstock, and my local festival, Bonnaroo, has been compared to it. The good, original version, not the decent '94 version, or the festival killer '99 version. If you've never camped out at a multi-day music fest and had good times with complete strangers, you aren't living.

    But, anyway, I'm going to Bonnaroo (headliners: Eminem, Arcade Fire, Buffalo Springfield, Widespread Panic, the Black Keys & Lil' Wayne), and like 70% leaning towards going to Pitchfork in Chicago (headliners: Animal Collective, TV on the Radio, Fleet Foxes, OFWGKTA). My roommate wants to go see his girlfriend in LA and see OFWGKTA at LA's Hard Summer Music Festival (headliners: Duck Sauce, Boysnoize, Chromeo, Ratatat, Skrillex & OFWGKTA).

    That pretty much rounds out my summer, although I really doubt I'll end up doing the LA festival, because it's not worth a plane ticket just to see LA and OFWGKTA. Sorry, Tyler.

    What about everyone else? Is Glastonbury happening this year? That's THE festival for me, and a lot of people I know.

    I am going to Carolina Rebellion Festival in Charlotte, NC on May 7.

    Line Up: Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Three Days Grace, Stone Sour, Seether, Bullet for My Valentine, Theory of a Deadman, Alter Bridge, Hinder, Skillet, Saving Abel, Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry, My Darkest Days, Cavo, Rev Theory, Pop Evil, Art of Dying.

    I'm basically going there to see Godsmack, Stone Sour and Alter Bridge. Those are among my favorite bands list. It'd be cool if I get to see Rev Theory too. I like Hinder and Skillet, but I wouldn't mind not seeing them.

    FESTIVALS........never been to any but will be going this year, so fucking excited. Glastonbury is happening this year but I'm not too bothered about that festival. I'll be going to 2 of the most awesome festivals this year.

    1st being Download Festival, where I'm going with a lot of LPU friends. And yes, the idea just came along as Linkin Park were announced. 5 nights of camping and 3 nights of music. Here's the lineup

    2nd festival is THE Sonisphere Festival . Just recently bought the tickets. And I'm glad I booked it, a few week ago I didnt even have the money and was gutted, really wanted to see those bands, worked my ass off and bought the tickets :D 4 nights camping and 3 nights full of bands. the lineup

    [​IMG]

    Another festival I really want to go but can't because being broke is High Voltage. Will wait till a month or so and see if I can afford or not. Here's the lineup for that one :D

    Thats it for now :)
    Thank you :D

    shit, I don't know if I should do Pitchfork or Lollapalooza. MUSE and Coldplay are two of my big guilty pleasures, then there's stuff like Bright Eyes and Crystal Castles. FUUUUCK.

    I'll still do Pitchfork, probably. Gotta see OFWGKTA live.

    I'm going to SoulStock this weekend, a Free Admission Christian Festival in Decatur, AL, to see RED and Fireflight.

    In September, I'll be going to Big Spring Jam in Huntsville, AL. They didn't have it last year, but it is back this year. I know I'll be going even though they haven't announced the artists yet. 2008 had Shinedown, A7X, and Hinder to name a few and 2009 had The Black Crowes, Cage the Elephant, Collective Soul, The Fray, Saving Abel, and Huey Lewis & the News.

    And last is Bayfest in Mobile, AL. No lineup yet for this year, but last year had Godsmack, Saving Abel, Adelitas Way, Shinedown, Skillet, and Papa Roach so hopefully they will be good this year too. ;)

    This Year, like last year, i will attend 2 Festivals.

    Hurricane Festival in Schee├čel, Germany, June 17-19. Line-Up: Foo Fighters, Incubus, Arcade Fire, Portishead, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Flogging Molly, Jimmy Eat World, Boysetsfire, Sick of it All, Sum 41, Parkway Drive and many more.

    Heineken Music Open'er Festival in Gdynia, Poland, June 30th - July 3rd. Line-Up: Coldplay, The Strokes, Prince (yes, THE Prince), Pulp, The Streets, Hurts, Kate Nash, Paolo Nutini, Simian Mobile Disco and many more.

    I'm totally stoked for these two. Last years Heineken Open'er was the best Festival i've ever attended. Not because of the Line-Up, though it was awesome, but because of the Athmosphere and the People who were there.

    Look at how many good bands i'm going to be seeing within 4 days! I've perfected my schedule to allow pretty much optimized moving about and having enough time to get to each set. Basically.

    Not to mention stuff like comedy (the League definitely), activities in the cinema tent (Q&As with Aziz Asnari (screening his new movie) & Zach Braff) and random bands I'll stand and watch for a few minutes in between shows.

    Oh man I can't wait.
