There are no good rock music festivals. There is the Warped tour, but I'm really not into that scene.

Europe gets all this, and all we get is 'Sounds of the Underground' garbage, where the only decent band is Opeth, and I don't even know if they're plyaing it this year. .

Oh well, I'll at least get to go see Fear Factory, Hypocrisy, Suffocation, and Decapitated this year. Hopefully SYL, and maybe Gigantour if I can afford it.

I wanna go to Wacken.

I just got back from the Download UK festival. Stunning.

The lineup is here: http://www.downloadfestival.co.uk/lineup/index.asp

Quite a heavy showing, as you can see - both in terms of the music itself, and the names they've managed to swing. Metallica got the biggest crowd, but Guns'n'Roses and Tool pulled a fair few people too.

Highlights of the festival for me were Tool, Opeth, Fishbone and Guns'n'Roses.

Not a fan of the new Guns, because frankly, it's the new Guns. I just wanted to know how they were? There was tonnes of speculation of how their new stuff sounds, and I personally didn't like the stuff that leaked.

Ravinia Festival = win.

I got to see Elvis Costello. YAY!

I'm going to Graspop on June the 25th. Can't wait to see Helloween, In Flames, Arch Enemy and especially Ensiferum - one of my absolute favorite bands. I have never really been to such a huge festival so I don't really know what to expect, but I bet I'll like it haha. I just think the 'no-taking-your-own-drinks-and-food' rule blows. Ah well, I'll survive.

Wacken looks excellent as well. I'd love to see Wintersun and Gamma Ray Shocked

I'm going to this small festival in Sweden, Arvikafestivalen, which used to be all about goth/synth/electronica, but has now sadly started turning towards more of an indiepop crowd... Still, some great bands there including:

Funker Vogt
Satyricon
Arch Enemy
Nitzer Ebb
Crystal Method
KMFDM

Actually wanted to go back to Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany too, but had a paper to finish Razz

I'll be going to Warped Tour I hope. I'm more into pop-punk, and they seem to be putting more hardcore bands on the Warped Tour now. It should be fun anyways!
