Desertfest, because the London line-up looks like this so far:-

Pentagram

Dozer

Lowrider

Kadavar

Wo-Fat

Conan

Ramesses

Pagan Altar

Black Moth

+ a few others. It's essentially some kind of stoner/doom fantasy land, but I'm more swayed by the same festival's Berlin leg because fucking Yawning Man and Unida are on the bill.

Deciding which to attend will be difficult.

I might go to Field Day - will see who else they get to play. I've been to the last two. Last year it was pretty bad, with awful sound a lot of the time. This year was much better, so hopefully they've figured out how to do it properly. I might go to Green Man too. I've enjoyed the times I've been, even if it does tend to rain a lot.

Ooooooo, that's tempting. I saw Wo-Fat at SXSW earlier in the year, they were mighty impressive. That Black Moth album is all kinds of good too, with the riffs and the lassie that sounds like Melissa Auf Der Maur (ok, it's maybe 2 kinds of good but it's still good).

It's awfully good. I'll probably go. Last year Orange Goblin, Amplifier, Red Fang, Black Tusk, Ufomammut, Colour Haze and Toner Low played so hopefully the TBA acts will be of that calibre.

The problem is, I can't decide which to go to. London for convenience or Berlin because it's my favourite place on the planet? Hrmph.

Worst thing about festivals, isn't it? There's always going to be some clashes but the schedules have usually worked out quite well for me at Primavera and I haven't had to make any really tough decisions.

Last year if you liked the cure you definitely had some clash issues since the cure played forever and seemed to clash with everyone.
