    Yes, I hear myself. I said we get much more than most places but to be technical, it's not exactly everything. Which part of that was false? Oh wait, I forgot this board is full of douches that get butthurt whenever someone not really seriously vents over things that don't affect them in any way. Nevermind. So sorry!

    But you're not lacking in festivals in California. You get one of the absolute biggest and best ones in the US a little over 2 hours outside of LA. There's Street Scene, Treasure Island, Outside Lands, a ton of electronic and smaller festivals. If you live in LA, that's not more than 7 hours to any of those places. In addition to that, you get at least 90% of touring bands. If a band only plays 4 US shows, it's almost a sure thing that LA will be one of those cities. Live music in LA has it's downside too. Some stuff gets booked at shitty venues, it's harder to score tickets, there's more people so you're bound to end up further away, the crowds can be a fucking pain, traffic and parking almost always suck, but you do get the music. I'm just saying, be grateful for it. And calling me a psychotic homicidal maniac every time I call you out on something is creepy.

    This article has probably been posted but I never saw


    Detour Festival Goes on 'Hiatus'; Whisper Campaign Begins on Impending Amphitheatre Announcement
    By Randall Roberts in Off the Record, news
    Tuesday, Aug. 18 2009 @ 8:07AM

    The LA Weekly's annual Detour Festival, which over the past three years has brought to downtown Los Angeles Basement Jaxx, Beck, Justice, Cut Copy, Gogol Bordello, the Mars Volta, Hercules and Love Affair, and dozens of other bands and DJs, is on hiatus. As in: there isn't going to be one this year.

    Call it festival fatigue. Blame the economy, the industry, the biz, the Powers That Be, the health care system, or the glut of afternoon-into-evening music events.

    There are rumblings, however, of a different kind of musical event for the fall, to take place one of the city's gorgeous open-air facilities. If the upstairs whispers are true -- and this is just rumor at this point -- the event would make for a glorious triple-epiphany of an evening.

    We'll keep you posted on details. The word that was stressed when West Coast Sound received news of Detour's status was hiatus. As in: this is no End of Detour kind of thing. We're just holding our proverbial horses on it for now.


    (I didnt know Basemenet Jaxx was at Detour)

    I like year 2 the best. Year one was a decent lineup. I did not like the year 3 lineup.

    I thought the first year was excellent, I loved the way they set it up. Second year wasn't that great for me.. just more played out electro ed banger group/kids there and the set-up was wack. I didn't even go the third year.. Line-up was not interesting at all... although, I still hope it comes back.
