/\ high speed trains that they have in a couple places. Japan most notably, that can travel something like up to 200 mph
that is what I figured, just wanted to make sure.
The second I saw some pictures of Fuji Rock... I knew I HAD to go. My fiancee also really wants to go to Japan. So it works out perfectly. Money is the main issue. If not this year though, I will make it someday.
I also want to go to Japan because I am 6"6 and will apparently be treated like a golden god over there.
Best performance I have ever seen was muse.
Best festival was bonnaroo. I had so much fun this year.
Fuji rock is nice festival, too. I went to 98, that was Bjork, Beck, Prodigy, Primal Scream, Iggy Pop,etc.
6'6", eh? Why, hello there
also, I now have friends in Japan (random) and we've been talking about Fuji Rocks. I just don't see it realistically happening for a few years for me. GLASTO has to come first. There is no question, no doubt, that it will be my first international fest. Plus the european accents make me melt like nothing else

We can have a (bullet) trainchella. Well, trainfuji, I guess. No, that doesn't look or sound right.
If Massive Attack and Jarvis Cocker play again, since both are presumably touring next year, I'll be happy.
I would be down but 09 is all about the Roo, and Lolla(maybe).
Japan >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> everywhere
Oh yeah IF portishead play ANYWHERE in the US I will be at that also, even if it's ATP NY which is a fest I have no interest in.
ive seen muse in irvine and at vegoose last year, they were simply stunning and would be AMAZING at coach...
also, after reading all this Roo (PHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIISH!), Fuji, and Glasto talk, me thinks i need to be hoping on a plane here shortly for some more festivals...
One of my best friends just moved to Austria so I'm going to a European festival next year. I don't know which one yet, but if Roskilde's lineup is anywhere near as good as it was this year then that will be the one.
Backwater have you bought your ticket for Flogging Molly? Can you really buy tickets at the box office?
I'm going to Hollywood sometime this week and getting tickets for quite a few shows. I assume the Palladium has a box office. If not, I don't think I want to pay over $40 to see Flogging Molly. I'm definitely getting tickets for Jedi Mink Tricks at the Fonda, Face to Face and Umph at HOB, and maybe Galactic and Meth/Red at HOB.
FUCK THESE FESTIVALS! I can't resist anymore but can I join OT discussions and interrupt the regular programming?
IMHO, the 3 music festivals that I need to go before I die (1 in Europe, 1 in Asia and 1 in North America):
2. Fuji Rock
3. Coachella or Bonnaroo (or take out Coachella since I've been there 3x already, however ...)
Honorable Mention: all ATPs (in the world), UMF (I will try to go to this every year), too many great festivals in Europe, Woodstock (happy to be at '99 ... would like be at '09)
I think Coachella has the edge over Bonnaroo since it's not like Glastonbury (from what I've been reading and hearing). And for my tastes, overall, Coachella always has a better lineup than Bonnaroo. However, there are so many bands that I truly love that will fit in Bonnaroo than in Coachella. To be honest, many haters are right, they should stay away from Coachella. I love Coachella and so many people in this board/attending it but there were many times that the crowd was just too lame in many shows I've been/witnessed (yeah, it's just how they are). I would really want to be part for realz in next would be epic rock shows @ Glastonbury just like what I've seen in you tubes).
If I'm ready financially (and I have to choose 1 only) I would go to Glastonbury over Bonnaroo regardless of the lineup. Sorry guys, Bonnaroo might be the Glasto of US with inferior lineup.
Having said all of these, count me in also as wanting to go badly and experience my first Glastonbury / Fuji Rock / Bonnaroo next year but WAAAAAAH I can't afford it.

You should put Sasquatch on your list just because of the venue, regardless of the lineup, enough though they are always really solid for a festival of it's size anyway.
Yes, Sasquatch is in my Top 10 American festivals list that I need to go before I die. It seems like it's all worth going there just for the venue alone regardless of the lineup. The unpredictable weather is scaring me. Weather-wise, is that the Glasto of US? j/k
from the moment i saw this thread this was the first thing that came to mind.
I have always loved this song and this particular performance has really stuck with me. I was not there. I merely happened upon it one evening last year on the telly.
There were some other factors into why those shows rank so high for me, Paul. But yes, Portishead is the tops. I'm pretty sure I would travel anywhere in the States to see Portishead again, and hopefully for longer than, like, 70 minutes this time.
