Stephen Heyman, writing for the New York Times, about the possibilities we're in a festival bubble.
An informal survey of headliners at 20 of this summer’s large music festival shows just how few headliners there are to go around. Overlapping is common; 70 percent of the festivals are headlined by either Florence and the Machine, Muse or the Swedish D.J. Avicii.

Yesterday, the New York Times posted an interesting article about Polyphonic, which invests in rising bands outside of the scope of a record label. What do you think of this idea and what bands would you like to see take advantage of opportunities like this?

The New York Times has a piece on this year's Warped Tour, touching on ever-popular topics like Brokencyde and Millionaires.
