3rd picnic for me and probably the last (will forget how much it all cost once I'm there but GODDAMN!)
and we were really tempted a couple of years ago but the cost is eye wateringly expensive. Especially when you factor in travel cost from the UK, it just isn't worth it. May as well go to mainland Europe where there will be similar line-ups, better weather for much much less money. Having said that heard nothing but great things and hope to go one day.
Line-up this year looks excellent as usual.
The travelling is a bit of a pain but I can't wait.
This shows my age and lack of imagination I guess but for me its really an excuse for a load of mates to get together. The line up is good but a lot of the bands have played before which leads to the usual comparissons that "they weren't as good as last time".
A really special vibe most of the time and this year has a very unexpected excellent weather forecast!
Looking forward to it now...
Random selection of my EP highlights
Arcade Fire 2005 (stuff of legend at this stage)
Massive Attack 2006
Gang of Four 2006
Paddy Keenan 2011
My Bloody Valentine 2008
was rather good. didnt think much of the gang of four set tbh, preferred new order/ elbow/ the long blondes
Arcade Fire were brilliant. Missed most of Kraftwerk though because of the Flaming Lips dicking about on the main stage.
Squarepusher and Orbital is heartbreaking as well as a bit stupid but besides that not too bad.
So looking forward to it. Anybody been to the smaller body and soul festival? Was at it this year and rate it as one of the best weekends of my life.
