How to prepare for a summer music festival

July 20, 2008

A pretty good starting point for thriving and surviving a summer music festival. It should also be added that you want to avoid a few things in particular to have a great time at shows this summer.

1. Dairy products
2. Jimmy Buffett concerts
3. Guys that look like the one below, particularly if they ask if you know where to “score” and if you’re “cool” or not.

Check out the guide here.

Jay Z at Glastonbury Festival 2008, UK

July 1, 2008

Jay Z caught some flack when it was announced he’d headline the Glastonbury Festival 2008 in the UK. Oasis member Noel Gallagher wasn’t pleased a hip hop act would be added to the historically rock-oriented festival.

“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” he said. “If you start to break it then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.

“Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go ‘Kylie Minogue?’ I don’t know about it. But I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”

So, naturally Jay Z kicks off his set at Glastonbury by covering Oasis’ “Wonderwall” before launching into “99 Problems.”
