2013 Festival Thread

Recommended Posts

I think I'm most excited by Pheonix, Death Grips, John Talabot, Killer Mike, Fuck Buttons, Jackmaster, Blur, The Knife, Solange, Daphni, Thee Oh Sees, Goat, My Bloody Valentine, Wu-Tang, Hot Chip, Crystal Castles, Jessie Ware and Liars.

But there are loads more I'd like to see too. Some bands I really like but because I've seen them before wouldn't been too fussed about missing them if there is a clash.

Going to this for location as much as bands. last year was spititulaized, primal's and new order plus king cresote types (you always get in wales!), that kind of thing. No idea what it'll be like. but looks good!

I'm making plans to go to ArcTanGent festival this year. There are far too many bands playing that I like for me not to go.

I thought ArcTanGent couldn't get better but then a heap of bands have been added to the lineup for a Damnation Festival curated stage - Earthtone9, Dragged Into Sunlight, Bossk, Devil Sold His Soul, Winterfylleth, Humanfly, Manatees and Astrohenge.

 

METAL. OH YEAH.

Primavera Sound was awesome last weekend. The first night I spent moving from stage to stage quite a lot saw partial rather than full sets. Partly because the Boiler Room didn't stick to the advertised times at all  :mad: and there was just so much on. The highlights were the small amount of Actress I got, Killer Mike, Fuck Button and Jackmaster's tweak-a-holic set. What I saw of death grips and pheonix sounded good too.

 

The Friday was absolutely baltic which was shite but this was still my favourite day, first I saw django django, solange and tinariwen who were all okay but then things really stepped up with Blur who were fantastic and then after them I saw the Knife. Their current show has been a lot but I loved it and I'd definitely forgot the cold by that point as I was dancing like a maniac. Finished with a Daphni dj set which was also fantastic. 

 

After the music stopped on Friday I stayed up a bit too long at a flat party which meant I wasn't really in the best shape for Saturday which was a shame but a couple of acts were good enough to make me stop suffering for a while. Thee Oh Sees were brilliant and I didn't regret choosing them over Wu Tang (which had been the toughest clash decision of the weekend). I managed to see Wu's last couple of songs and they did sound good. I was Impressed by Liars and then  sadly very disappointed by My Boody Valentine and left after 4 songs and then moved between stages again for a bit before ending with DJ Koze who was great, highlight of the day. Then I went straight home to bed where I stayed for a very long time.

 

 

Got to do it all again in 2 weeks with Sonar :D

Going to head to Falls Festival in Tasmania Poland over New Years. Went to the Victoria one this year and it was far and away the best festival I've ever been to.

This in November. It's a shame ATP is ending but this is quite a line up to go out on. Seen most of the bands before but Television should be something special.
