Heh, 'I'm being treated to a Bloc Party ticket by a friend who's coming up for Madonna'.

That's quite a funny statement, but I love the appreciation for a wide variety of music. Enjoy!

I actually have something that ressembles a list of concerts.

16,17,18 August - Pukkelpop, Hasselt
18 October - Radiohead, Sportpaleis, Antwerp
7 November - Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cirque Royal, Brussels

I'm glad I'm able to see many artists I love at festivals this year. I'll probably still buy tickets if Bloc Party do a gig here.

I had a Bloc Party ticket, but then I realized it's the same day as the Florence & The Machine show. I knew there was something familiar about the date 9/14.

I still managed to add another show to my list.

The Black Keys (with Arctic Monkeys) - March 7
Kasabian - March 27
The Joy Formidable - March 30
Snow Patrol - April 12
Radiohead - May 29 (new)
Radiohead - May 31
Radiohead - June 1
The Dave Matthews Band - June 5
The Dave Matthews Band - June 6

Coldplay - July 29
Florence + The Machine - September 14
Music Midtown Festival - September 21 & 22
Alabama Shakes - October 5

I'll be seeing Bloc Party at Lolla

I think this goes my semi-official Lolla lineup -

Friday (late arrival):

Die Antwoord
The Shins
M83
The Black Keys

M83 being my highlight


Saturday:

Delta Spirit
The Temper Trap
1/2 Fun.
Bloc Party
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Temper Trap being my highlight



Sunday:

Bombay Bicycle Club
??
The Gaslight Anthem
Of Monsters and Men
The Big Pink
Childish Gambino

Tossup between Of Monsters and Men, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Gaslight Anthem. Dunno who to fill that gap with between Bombay and Gaslight, might just enjoy the park.

14 acts, seems very do-able.

I think it's possible to see 9 full sets a day, so I'm pushing for 20-25 sets over those three days. I saw 20 at Pitchfork with half the bands of Lolla.

Classes end August 2nd and I'll be flying in from Orlando to Chicago on August 3rd. Getting there at around 11:00am at Midway, gotta get to the hotel which is quite far and then get out to the park so I'll be a while on Day 1. Sunday is the only day that I would want to see acts starting from the morning with Mona, but I figure it's best to not plan to see too many. We aren't exactly in our own environment up there, but I'll do my best to make the best of it. It's going to be a blast.

Wow, 9 is a lot. When do they start playing then?

I managed to see 6 to 8 bands a day at Werchter and I thought 8 was a bit much.

I saw Twin Atlantic, Civil Twilight, Neon Trees, AWOLNATION, an Airborne Toxic Event and decided to just skip seeing cake and Incubus (for many reasons, but mainly because I was tired. This was DC101 Chili Cookoff. I think 8 is doable. The reason why I only lasted 5 acts was because I was holding dwon a rail spot for every act and it was 90+ degrees outside and a rough crowd. I imagine Lolla is a bit more relaxed considering we will be moving stage to stage a ton, except on Sunday where ill spend 4 acts in a row on the Gambino (Bud Light? Google Play?) stage.

They start at noon, go to 10, and the headlining set is 2 hours. You can actually see 10 a day because the early sets are 45 minutes and that gains you an extra set over the course of the day, but roughly:

12-1
1-2
2-3
3-4
4-5
5-6
6-7
7-8
8-10

Obviously, you're not going to see that many because you'll need to eat, go to the bathroom, walk from stage to stage, etc. I usually try to aim for 7 a day.

And in addition to eating, going to the bathroom, walking, etc., not all of the acts you want to see will have times set up so nicely. Especially if you stay on the same stage.

So I guess... eating, bathroom, walking, and waiting.

Yeah, if you camp and stay on one stage all day (I've never done this for longer than an hour or so, for Cut Copy) you're only going to see like 5-6 bands per day. I've spent way too much money on this to do that, and don't consider front row all that important for most acts.

Ah, well the way I see it is that come Sunday I want to see The Gaslight Anthem, Of Monsters and Men, The Big Pink, and Childish Gambino really badly and they all just so happen to be on the same stage consecutively. The only act I'm really missing out on is Miike Snow... who goes through The Big Pink anyways.

I'm more about the fun I have though. I know, trying to get your money's worth and all, but to me it's more than a festival. It's my entire vacation. Going up there for the weekend and then to Detroit for a week.
