The Low Down :
Never been to the festival yet! I thought this year was going to be the electric picnic year. I have grown old of Oxegen not the line up just the atmosphere and attendants. Electric picnic boosts a powerful line-up but i still was disappointed not sure why but it hasn't made me go crazy and steal €240 yet!
Maybe come Friday I will have that urge. My top picks are highlighted in green and i would love to see Bright Eyes and wilco. who knows might see you there.

Hellos, just fell into your blog. You've just about got me considering going to London for Morrissey & Beck, cheers, that slipped under my radar completely.

As far as EP goes, I'd surely make My Bloody Valentine one of your green highlights too.

Nice blog

What jusk said. My Bloody Valentine are the biggest draw, easily.
