Be The Riott
Back in the day Lollapalooza and Hoarde were the only music festivals around. Now it seems every genre and their mother has a music festival, not only in the U.S. but around the world. A couple smaller festivals are coming up that combine the best and most diverse of today’s new music.
First up is the Download Festival today at Shoreline. The lineup is extremely good especially at the low price of $25!
Main Stage: Beck, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Muse, The Shins, and Rogue Wave
Side Stage: Coheed & Cambria, Kinky
(Unfortunately Wolfmother had to cancel due to a newborn baby)
Coming up in November is the RIOTT festival (11/11/06) with an even more diverse lineup of bands spanning several genres:
The Rapture, Clipse, Metric, Explosions in the Sky, Sage Francis, The Wrens, Diplo, Saul Williams, Asobi Seksu, Girl Talk, etc
I’m still curious to see how they can possibly fit all of this music in one venue (Bill Graham Civic Auditorium) and during one day…
