Please leave room in your suitcase for a kitten. Ta.

love your name :o) .old painty can ned!
in Spanish magazines are that the organisers are trying to get Bjork, David Bowie, Coldplay, Radiohead and White Stripes. Nothing confirmed.
Also read this:
"So far the concensus is that Bjork is expected to play, but a lot of doubt as to whether Radiohead will be game. Kaiser Chiefs and Chemical Brothers are performing at a festival in Madrid, so count them out. Similarly Ladytron are playing at the Observatori in Valencia, so don't expect them to play.
A rumour has focused on a record curated by Yoko Ono - as this record features Peaches, Le Tigre, Cat Power and Anthony & The Johnsons, there's hope that these bands will make it onto the 'cartel'. Air, the singer from Everything but the Girl and even Portishead have been also been mentioned in rumours"
STILL haven't seen ladytron...one of my favorite bands i've still not managed to see :(
them at tdk cross central last summer... not mind blowing. Benicassim last summer on the other hand - phenomenal. I have my tickets, I have my accommodation (as much fun as camping was, I'm not doing it again) and just waiting for line up. apparently leaks started happening from feb 15th last year so expect some news soon...
sorry but LOLZ
It sounds too hot for me! I think 40'C plus booze etc is a recipe for disaster - although I nearly got sunstroke at T in the Park so it could be I'm just a bit of a freak...
I went last year and it was a bit pants. I think maybe 2/3 years ago it might have been good, but last year was just filled with British yobs who were wasted and horrible.
it has gone very british I'll agree... but I saw very little problems/yobs...
but i'd probably die.
its fucking horrible.
wheres good to fly from to get there?
You can fly into Valencia, Reus or Barcelona. If you book early you should get tix for £50...
I recommend renting a car for the time out there too... the trains are busy the last two days out of Beni...
does everyone think of the line up?
am v excited about animal collective, !!!, CSS, even artic monkeys a bit...
rumoured to be at glasto. iggy and animal collective are enough to justify going.
considering myself to have good music knowledge, i know little about iggy and the stooges...
what should i expect?
performing stomping garage rock
fun to watch but someone needs to tell him to put some clothes on!!
talk more about benicassim...
well we did anyway
