Music Festivals.

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:

1. Radiohead
2. Jeff Buckley
3. Arcade Fire
4. Broken Social Scene/Stars
5. Four Tet
6. Bjork
7. Low
8. The Flaming Lips
9. Wilco
10. Queen (i know, not possible. But to see Freddy Mercury live?? That would kill me.)

"I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously you never get hurt. If you never get hurt you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends."

i was going to comment on jeff buckley as well. but i guess that's taken care of. i too miss summer. a music festival right about now could possibly replace the sunshine beating down on my body for a short time... but that wouldn't really work, because what kind of music festival happens outside in the cold, or indoors for that matter? sigh...

.. i just read this comment and it sounded a little lame, but i'm publishing it anyways.
