lol seriously. Coachella is based off European festivals. People really need to think before hitting that "Submit Thread" button.

And you need to read before hitting 'reply'. What I said was GV was going to enter the English festival market with something of their own. Of course there's already festivals in England and they pre-date Coachella. That's not the point.

I know a bit more about it than I posted but I'll leave it at that.

Like microcuts, read again and try to comprehend the simple statement that was made. Do GV run all those festivals in England? No. They're looking to launch their own.

Coachella beats Glasto hands down. Coachella is hot and beautiful. Glasto is wet and miserable. Coachella is less than half the attendance to Glasto thus enabling everyone to get closer to the bands and there aren't any pissheads.

They'd have to make it pretty special. There's already so many in the UK, and you can only have them in a certain time frame when there will be a chance of sun. So June - August is the norm.

But yeah, we already have a bunch of them. Reading/Leeds, V, Glastonbury, Oxygen, Isle Of Wight, T In The Park, Download, Creamfields, Party In The Park, Womad, Bestival, Latitude, Guilfest, Global Gathering, The Big Chill, HI:FI, Beautiful Days and Get Loaded.

Phew. I think that's all of them.

This made me laugh.

And as for that comment about there being a festival in England called Bestival..they should rename it Beastival. I would go just for the name.

WTF, Glastonbury is possibly THE best festival in the world, hands down. The amount of stuff that goes on there, its like a whole new city just for a weekend, with some of the best music in the world! I could quite happily live at Glastonbury for the rest of my life!

and I live just down the road from Michael Eavis (owner/organiser for you yanks) so I get free tix!

Glasto's lineup this year so far looks like crap and the 2005 lineup wasnt anything special either.

bumbershoot's been around a long time dude....dave, pat, and krist all jammed together on some led zeppelin there back in 1997

Yeah Bumbershoot has been around for what 20 years? But the way you have to get around to seeing bands is whack, but thats how they do it and its worked so... Oh Street Scene is another "festival". And V is starting to happen randomly around the country now. Next one May 20 and 21 in Vancouver...



Wow, I'm impressed u certainly know the festivals in the UK, Don't think I could name that many festivals from the USA off the top of my head.


Thanks, I try to keep up with things over there as much as I can. I got a subscription to NME for X mas last year(2005) so it was fun to get an issue every week with festival coverage in the summer...

that photo is from a few years ago when a flash flood occurred after sudden, heavy rain. It affected a small part of the camping area and, if I remember correctly, didn't last long. Still, it would've ruined your weekend if it was your tent under water.

Have you noticed that there's not many people in the picture?....thats because its only a wet tent and they're down in the Arena having a laugh!

Listen up my American friends. Glastonbury is like this every year without question. Every year many people drown in their tents and valuble crates of booze are washed away never to be seen again. As are cars.
You never see anyone freely smoking bifters, selling hashcake or falling over pissed and class As are none existant. There's nobody in the healing fields cheering when the sun rises over the Vale of Avlon. In fact, it's impossible to have any fun of of any sort whatsoever! Plus, anyone caught making a noise on the camp site after 01:00 generally has the dogs set on them by the festival's secret police.
Basically you'd be foolish to spend your cash on a ticket as you'll be guaranteed to have a shit time. Plus, if you decide not to come it may give me a cat in hells chance of getting hold of a ticket.

And there's never any naked birds mud wrestling openly around the arena either!!

Sure, but if they try to launch a Coachella in UK, they won't bring the sun, it'll be wet too...

I haven't been to Glastonbury and I'll never go there. ATP's rock.

Phew. I think that's all of them.

you missed Truck 10 festival, end of the road and Glade! but well done for pointing out we have to many festivals!! some amazing, some pointless as they have the same line up as about a dozen other festivals.
