Festival Potentials

July 6, 2010

After a friend had idea of heading to Seattle for Bumbershoot, I started thinking about some music festivals for this summer. As I’m heading back to England for grad for a while, and Los Angeles for a little trip in August (wee!!), there is some potentially some very good shows to be seen:

London, Sat 17/07 : Lovebox

Mark Ronson could be hit or miss, but I would love to see Loud Minority and Grandmaster Flash. Rudy Ranks, and Booka Shade could be great, too. Its a bit costly though, so I probably won’t go to this in the end. The Friday line up looks even better than Saturday’s, but I’m graduating that day. Another time, Dizee!!

Montreal, 31/07: Osheaga

The Saturday line up for this 2 day festival is great. Not that into many of the names above but I have been dying to see Robyn in concert for a long time, and I think Jamie Lidell would kill it, too. Robyn is going to be in Toronto, but for some mysterious Disco Lemonade festival which is very costly and the other artists kinda stink. Jamie Lidell is also apparently coming to Toronto September 14th…hmm…anways The National could be good (although I kind of hate how deep that guys voice is sometimes) and Mary Ann Hobbs will be around as well, who I imagine would play a pretty sick set.

Los Angeles, 08/08: Hard Summer Music Festival

This looks like a serious dance party!! The only two stinkers are Crystal Castles and Major Lazer, but Diplo and Switch (the Major Lazer bodies) on their own are pretty great.

Crossing my fingers than even 1/4 of these happen!
