See..its all good with these big old festivals, loads of dj's, 8000 arenas etc ect.. but i always think they totally miss the point! They arent really fesitvals at all.. rather just big 'raves' sponsored by fucking vodaphone or wella hair gell!

A lot these days are missing that friendly vibe, and are really faceless, copycats of each other...



If you are after something a bit different but still with really good music i recommend going to bloom. Its a weekedn one near Bristol, about 8000 people and its only £50

loads of wicked hip hop, breaks and music that went on all night! I would seriosuly reccomend it... I know its not global slammin crahser land but still.. fuck all that big coroprate bollocks !

Last year's highlights included Coldcut, the Trojan Sound System (we were dancing around to the sounds of classic reggae in scorching heat for 3 hours!!!!) and a drunk rodney p brocking out!

Bloom looks pretty sick, may have to reach this, but Dour festival FTW!!
It's in Belgium and looks bloody good. Friction, Sub Focus, Roni Size Live, High Contrast, Shy FX, Pendulum (DJ Set), DJ Q-Bert, Ice Cube, Steel Pulse etc etc. Loads of bands and reggae and other stuff. Anyone else going??

Yeah got mailed the line up so far.. not bad! the tickets are 80 quid now which is still a bargain.

It was good last year a nice relaxed mashup compared to the relentless madness of Glade (which is also fucking wicked). Its quite funny cos last year you had Pendulum and then the next day on the same stage there was the little brass band playing.. i was pretty strung out..it was confusing....

the music stops about 2am i think and evryone goes to this other tea tent place where they were palying Breaks all night..its cool! Lots of weirdos to meet, like how i remeber festivals were when i was 18..;)
