Festival is consistently great every year. I gotta say I don't know anything about them actually, just did a search and found out they were on Grey's Anatomy soundtrack...?

Bestival wins awards every year, and the awards are only getting more and more prestigious. It's almost the UK's version of Coachella now. Albeit on a much smaller scale.

Oh yeah I know, I go to multiple festivals over the year in the UK, even Isle of Wight...but never done Bestival. This is the year, I think.

They had an ad on the bottom of Spotify today...kind of like Matt Pond PA/Dawes, but it doesn't feel totally genuine to me.

Hahaha yeah they're kind of douchy I feel, but they are from the UK so I just wanted to know if you know anything about them. They seem to be touring all the time.

Oh, man, I'd kill to see some of the bands at this. Specifically Warpaint. Need to stop sleeping on their live dates, because I know they've hit MN numerous times the past few years.

I mean, maybe that is unfair to say. I listened to about one and half songs. But. That is my initial impression. I would just take 'em for a spin yourself and forget I said that, haha.
