Rumor has it that The Arcade Fire and The Decemberists will be playing at the same time forcing people to choose one or the other. I hope it isn't true.

That's an excellent lineup indeed. Distressing number of Swedes on day three though.

It's interesting how much ticket prices have gone up for these types of events though. I was gonna make a post saying how much cheaper (vaguely equivalent festival) Roskilde tickets are, turns out they've gone up over 50% since I last went there (2002) and are now pretty much the same price.

Is it exploitation to go see Roky Erickson? He's completely mad.

He's doing a world tour this year, he's got several dates in Scandinavia too. Maybe he's got better?

This is the third time round that we've been told Roky's much better now.
