I was just scanning back through my pictures from last year and I’m genuinely getting excited about this weekend…
I didn’t do one of these last year but this year I have a couple of small issues that maybe you can help me with.
I’m down on the Friday but on air in the Roadcaster til 5 so that rules anything before then out. Saturday I’m down all day but Sunday I’ve chosen Springsteen. I’ve had a scan through the listings and just jotted down everyone I think I might be interested in seeing. Yes, it’s an aspirational list, there’s no way I’ll get around to everything and there are many clashes, but still.
So, Friday its:
Main Stage – Lily Allen, Blur
Green Spheres – Fight Like Apes, 2 Many DJs
Music Academy – M83, David Holmes
And then on Saturday:
Main Stage – Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Elbow, Bloc Party
02 Stage – Doves, Nick Cave
Green Spheres – TV On The Radio, Pet Shop Boys
Music Academy – Messiah J, Crystal Castles
Dance Arena – Annie Mac
New Bands – Passion Pit, Little Boots
B-Live – Soundcheck (the lovely Unarocks)
Right then, what am I missing and why? Particularly early on Saturday, there’s not a mad amount taking my fancy…
