[2012] Festivals

Postby Security on Sat Apr 28, 2012 2:02 am

So which festivals and artists is everyone going to see during this season?
The start of the season here in the Netherlands is about to kick off and I will be going to the same festival I have been too in the last 4 years, Graspop (Megadeth bitch!)!

In the UK and Benelux alone there so many festivals it's almost insane! :D

Sharing of playlists/band lists is appriciated.

I was planning to visit Thunderdome and Dominator again. But since I'll be in the US from May 8th it doesn't seem likely. :(

Going to a new festival called No Direction Home. Lots of indie/folkie bands playing, including my absolute favourites Slow Club





Other acts include Richard Hawley, The Low Anthem, Gruff Rhys, Martin Carthy (who was amazing when I saw him several years ago) and Django Django who I think wil be awesome live:

There's tons of bands I've never heard of playing, which is always really fun - hopefully there'll be some really excellent music there.

Probably just do Hevy Fest. I think last year was better personally, but this year has some decent bands. I bolded a few I'm looking forward to seeing.

I will go to the "Eurockéennes de Belfort" next week ! http://www.eurockeennes.fr
The best French music festival of all time ! I wanted to go to the Hellfest, but I couldn't :cry: .
If you wanna hear good music, go to France during summer : there are lots of tremendous music festivals.

agreed 'Hellfest' is among the best and my personal favourites.The line-up there is always very strong.But i go to festivals very rarely , just because in Bulgaria festivals aren't for me.There's always Manowar, Maiden, Slayer coming every year and this stuff isn't for me.

unless your 15.. stay away from Roskilde.. so boring now a days, crap artist as well.. it has forsaken its Woodstock kinda atmosphere for a more "youngster drinking" festival style.

Omg Will Haven have Grady back, I think I just let out a little bit of wee. I also let out a few tears at the price of Hevy :( I will see them again one day.... one day....

:cry:
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.
