    Default Should I go this festival next week, and if so, what bands should I see?

    Wireless Festival, London.

    I am tempted to go on Thursday and Saturday simply to see Daft Punk and The White Stripes, but I am pretty indifferent towards all the rest. Any recommendations?

    Saturday makes me jealous.
    LCD Soundsystem, Klaxons, Datarock, Digitalism? Not to mention Daft Fucking Punk?!

    I don't know many of the other bands, but the above 5 are can't-miss, and all on Saturday. Then again they're all playing in L.A. within the next few weeks (not sure about Digitalism)

    I have seen Daft Punk, Klaxons, and LCD Soundsystem before, at Coachella, and I don't know Datarock or Digitalism. Could you recommend any tracks, or link me to something?

    I'd be happy to.
    Datarock is a cross between Devo, Happy Mondays and Talking Heads.
    Digitalism is techno.

    Datarock - Computer Camp Love


    Datarock - FaFaFa


    Datarock - New Song


    Digitalism at Coachella


    by the way, L.A. people , Datarock is playing at the Troubadour June 13 (same nite as Hot Chip unfortunately).

    What's wrong with seeing acts again that you've seen recently? If they were good last time you saw them, I'd think that would be added incentive.

    Saturday is going to be such a hardcore party.

    I guess I should have explained, it's a day-ticket sort of festival in the middle of the city, not a stay-overnight sort of festival. So going to Thursday and Saturday alone would not be a problem. I am definitely going to go to Saturday... still not sure about Thursday.

    Courtney> There's nothing wrong with seeing bands I've already seen, but I like seeing new things, too. Like, I love watching my favourite movies again and again on DVD, but it's somehow more rewarding to watch something new.

    Stef - I'm going with a few friends on Thu and Sat

    Current Plans =(depending on clashes)
    Thursday
    The White Stripes
    QOTSA
    Modest Mouse (unless you saw them very recently, you should enjoy the new setup)
    The Only Ones (Classic)
    The Sounds
    Alberta Cross
    Air
    The Bees
    The Kissaway Trail (one of the best albums of the year so far)
    The Lea Shores (if you like spiritualized/ride, you'll love them)
    Goldspot
    Far From The Dance (crap on record, excellent live)

    Also - Avoid dredg at all costs. Incubus lite (Sorry GnarVee, but it's true)

    Saturday
    Daft Punk
    LCD Soundsystem
    CSS
    New Young Pony Club
    Datarock (at last - missed their last 2 london shows due to conflicts)
    Mutemath (also crap on record, but good live)
    Klaxons
    Simian Mobile Disco
    Digitalism

    The other 2 days are shockingly bad - especially sunday(apart from les campesinos, who are genius)

    Live Nation are doing a special offer on the Thursday tickets at the moment. For 3 extra, you get a copy of Icky Thump delivered on release day.

    Jsut the same old, same old as far as headliners go. To be honest, I'd go just to see Tom Middleton. Is he DJing or is it some sort of live set?

    I wasn't going to go tonight but at the last minute a friend called me and offered me a free ticket, so I went.

    I watched Air for about 15 minutes and they were playing in a small tent that wasn't even half full. WTF? They were incredible. WAY better than at Coachella. 9/10

    Then I watched QOTSA for about 15 minutes. They were rocking out, and the musicianship was great, but I got a bit bored after a while. 6/10

    I wandered over to one of the smaller tents and saw a band called Polytechnic, who I liked a lot. 7/10

    Finally, it was time for the White Stripes. They were really good, but not incredible. And they didn't play Fell In Love With A Girl. 8/10

    Why did you watch Air for only 15 minutes?? I'm assuming schedule conflicts, but my god.
