Just been looking at the lineup for V Festival this summer. Having bought my ticket last September when a limited number were put on sale at the previous years prices, I was pleased to see Kasabian and the Kings of Leon as Headliners (along with bands like Editors, Stereophonics, The Kooks, Madness, Doves, White Lies, The Prodigy etc etc) given it was a relative risk buying the tickets so early with no idea who might be announced.
So I thought I'd see if anyone else is hitting V Festival, or any other Music Festival this Summer and what you think of the lineups if you are going?

I shall be at the Wickerman Festival in Scotland (as usual) as it's very family freindly and has a great atmosphere. No acts announced as of yet, but they never disappoint with a nice varied array of artists.
The Wickerman Festival - Scotland's Music and Arts Event
Oh, and they burn a full sized wickerman at midnight on the Saturday:

We had a great view of the burning from our teepee last year as the kids were sound asleep inside.

Make sure you get to see White Lies. They really do put on a good show, and their music is first class. And take a look at their site. Now THAT'S a background! (broadband may be required!!).

I shall be going to Download and to the Leeds Festival. Wasn't going to do Download but my mate had a spare ticket and then they announced the headliners...ACDC, Aerosmith and Rage Against the Machine...how could I not go?? Lol.
Of course Leeds hasn't been announced yet so having pre-ordered my tickets was risky but I find Leeds never disappoints.

Good shout, I saw White Lies at Glastonbury last year and loved every second. Their album is quality as well, really looking forward to seeing these again.

Glastonbury here for the 4th time running! I've been to quite a few of the festivals, but Glastonbury is the only one I keep returning to!

I'm busy, busy, busy at the moment but I have some free Download tickets so I might have to pop and see Rage Against the Machine and AC-DC should be a laugh.

Now also going to the Hop Farm festival headlined by the one and only Bob Dylan with loads of other folky acts. Should be bloody amazing to say the least

Bad move, the southerners haven't got a clue how to festival properly, went to reading last year and the crowd just stood there wheras stafford went mental for V festival.

I've now applied for the Radio 1 "Big Weekend" as well.....lineup isn't great plus most of the bands I'd want to see are playing V as well but hey ho, it's free and it's only a few miles from the caravan :-)
And only a non festival musical note, I bought tickets for Richard Ashcroft and his new band (United Nations of Sound) in June :-) As long as he plays some of The Verve's back catalogue it will be immense :-)
