I like going to musicfestivals, take the tent and watch bands play all weekend but i can't imagine that i'm the only one here. so where are you guys going this year and who you're looking forward to see ? :D
are you going all weekend or just one day ?? what festival you want to visit someday ? :)

my plans for this summer :

- Pinkpop, the Netherlands may 30-june 1(www.pinkpop.nl)
just one day, RATM is the main reason i'm going. nice line up this year but have seen a lot of those bands already and it's not my fave festival

- Rock Werchter, Belgium july 3 - july 6 (www.rockwerchter.be)
all days, every year a great line up. and i like it there :cool:

- Cactus, Belgium july 11-13 (www.cactusfestival.be)
depends on the line up, but if i go it will be just 1 day. love the food over there :D

- Lowlands, the Netherlands august 15-17 (www.lowlands.nl)
all weekend, my fave festival :worship:

Sziget festival is the one i'm the most curious about from the ones i haven't been to btw

Sziget festival is the one i'm the most curious about from the ones i haven't been to btw
only festival I've been to, went there just to see Radiohead but it was a great experience with Franz Ferdinand, dEUS and some other bands
List of artist is not as good as western festivals but the main stage has good acts. There are 4-5 other stages for different genres (metal, world music, electronic etc)
The venue is fantastic, an island on the Danube. It's rather cheap and the good thing is that it's very near the city, 3 tram stations. There are enough showers although you gotta hold the line for round 30 min sometimes. It goes for 1 week though i stayed only 5 days. There are also many discos, there's a jazz tent, ambient tent (where you enter without shoes and there are no seats but you lay on the floor, great place :D ), silent disco (everyone has headphones, so from outside looks like people are dancing without music), base jumping, and great bars that stay open all day and all night (best time to go is in the morning when everyone is drunk from the night before http://youtube.com/watch?v=Cij2Y19mOS4 )

If I had money and time I'd surely go there again. I like also the festivals in belgium (Werchter and Pukkelpop sp?), they usually have great artists

Heineken Open'er in Sopot :rocker:

But this year's list is probably the weakest ever. It used to be a decent event. Still I think Massive Attack will come.

Chemical Brothers are here every year I guess lol. I like Beirut, would like to see them live.

Gentleman was in my city not such a long time ago :yawn:.

I wouldn't mind The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand and Skin again, this is some good stuff live.
