    Im fully on board for a Euro trip. Im down for anything that is heavily geared towards EDM. If there is something with Orbital playing then I am down for sure.

    QFT. Orbital is booked on a few Europe gigs this year if I am correct. Ryan we are becoming more like twins everyday.

    reading about it now and its look very nice
    Never been to Lolla so can't comment. From what I've heard from my sister and other family, Oxegen attracts a subset of Irish people more interested in causing trouble, drinking, burning tents etc. The kind of scum I honestly haven't seen in 10yrs living in the US.

    I went to Primavera last year and it was great; this year looks the same if not better. Barcelona is a tremendous city too. I'd go there.

    Just my 2c.

    Oxegen is rough, it's true. But that suits me, I know what I'm in for, and I like the rowdiness of it. So long as you're in a large enough camping-party that you can look after each other, and so long as you don't mind the sheer environmental adversity you're up against, you can have a good time.

    Just once a year, I like to party like a viking.

    Ha!

    Don't camp on the periphery of the site, you should be fine. I don't think it'll ever be as bad as it was in '06 ever again.

    To be fair, I've only ever seen the abandoned tents getting burned on Monday morning. I don't think you're likely to wake up on fire, like.

    There's a good indy article about it at http://www.indymedia.ie/article/77264

    "riot conditions in Camp A on Sunday/Monday night, the towers pulled down, the rampaging drunks, druggies and robbers and assaulters setting light to tents and the undermanned out of control security who tackled both the law breakers and the innocent with equal viciousness.

    PARTY!

    It is very possible to do both. A flight to Barcelona would only be around $100from London if you book reasonably early.

    If I have to go to Europe next year to see Orbital I will. We'll see what happens, but the creation of this thread was a good idea.

    That is why my ideal plan would be primavera -> glastonbury. open jaw flight into barcelona, out of london, with a few weeks in between for traveling.

    if we're going to plan anything we need an idea of dates. if the two festivals you want to hit are three months apart, or the same weekend in different countries, well you get it.

    I'll start. faxman can you update the first post with these dates and others people add? once 2010 dates start being announced (eventually) we can update again, but they should happen in roughly the same order. I included ATP although I don't know if that reoccurs at the same time each year.

    2009:

    ATP Fans Strike Back - May 8-10. Minehead, England.
    ATP - May 15-17. Minehead, England.
    Primavera Sound - May 28-30. Barcelona, Spain.
    Pinkpop - May 30-June 1. Landgraaf, Netherlands.
    Rock Am Ring - June 5-7. Nurburg, Germany.
    Download - June 12-13. Donington Park, England.
    Rock Ness - June 12-14. Loch Ness, Scotland.
    Glastonbury - June 24-28. Glastonbury, England.
    Rock Werchter - July 2-5. Werchter, Belgium.
    Roskilde - July 2-5. Roskilde, Denmark.
    Eurockeenes - July 2-5. Les Eurockeenes De Belfort, France.
    Wireless - July 4-5. London, England.
    Oxegen - July 10-12. Kildare, Eire.
    T in the Park - July 10-12. Kinross. Scotland.
    Benicassim - July 16-29. Valencia, Spain.
    Global Gathering - July 24-25. Stratford on Avon, England.
    Pukkelpop - Aug 20-22. Belgium.
    V Festival - Aug 22-23. Chelmsford and Staffordshire, England.
    Reading/Leeds - Aug 28-30. Reading and Leeds, England. (duh)
    Creamfields - Aug 29-30. Cheshire, England.
    Electric Picnic - Sep 4-6. Laois, Eire.
    Bestival - Sep 11-13. Isle of Wight.

    using my super useful new calendar, it looks like that would be about a 4.5 week vacation in 2009. that'd be awesome if you can swing it though.

    I'm checking out rock ness this year, I can provide feedback later.

    if anyone else has advice for must-attend or must-avoid festivals, speak up. I went to T in the Park once and won't be back.

    If anyone wants any advice about Glastonbury, just shout. I help out on their information team during the event.

    (The most basic advice is: It generally sells out before the line up is announced, so you have to decide to do the festival and not worry about the acts.)

    I'm going to Europe this fall....so I'm out. Coachella is my music vacation. I like my other vacations to revolve around drinking on a beach.

    For some reason I thought glasto was mid-june (3rd weekend) rather than the last weekend. It'd still be doable maybe if I worked for a few days or week over there. (I report in to London so I've done this a few times to delay coming home, and it's great, since really all I do when I show up is disrupt things and drag the office to long lunches and afternoons at pubs).

    You just sold me on Oxygen. I could go to Glasto travel a little end my trip with Oxygen and then back to the states.
