As spring is finally here and British Summer Time begins...I am keen to know who is going to what festival, and why?
We have talked endlessly about the festivals that are going on, who is headlining and who is rumoured to be going. We have obviously lost Glasto this year, which will change the kinds of things that people might go to.
For me, I think this year I am going to try Boomtown, the festival near me. I really fancy a smaller, more localised festival and want zero hassle!
Until Glasto comes back next year, I don't think I will venture to a big festival. I think the line-up for Reading looks ace but I don't think I will be going. The riots and the aggro seem to have put me off I think.
What about you guys? Where are you planning on going and why?
What will you choose this year? Will you stick to the festivals that you know and love or will you venture to something new? Is there one particular act that you want to see?
For me, I am hoping that next year will see Bloc Party return. They make a festival for me. In my opinion, because I am sad, a festival without them just isn't the same.
I think a change this year from the big festivals will be interesting. I may even try one or two other small festivals like End of the Road or Wilderness!
