I just looked at the ice outside and got this lonely feeling for summer and the joy of music festivals.
i don't know if there is anything better.
a couple of perfect examples are Bumbershoot in Seattle, Washington.
Labor Day Weekend.
or Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California.
Sometime at the end of May.

Unfortunately, Canada is not yet on the bandwagon of hosting Big Name music festivals. We have, on the other hand, held festivals like Pop Montreal, which You Say Party We Say Die played at this year. Canada has also pulled off hosting some great folk festivals, like the Mission Folk Fest which is brilliant, and the Winnipeg Folk Fest, which Bonnie tells me is great.
Top Ten Bands/Artists I'd love to see at a music festival:
2. Jeff Buckley
3. Arcade Fire
4. Broken Social Scene/Stars
5. Four Tet
8. The Flaming Lips
10. Queen (i know, not possible. But to see Freddy Mercury live?? That would kill me.)
