Balls. I'm going to miss Bloc Party's return to Chicago. They were awesome when we saw them just over a year ago and in August they will appear at Lollapalooza
in Grant Park alongside Radiohead, Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco - whole line up here
I've always wanted to go to Lollapalooza, although I'm pushing it for festivals, however if you are in Chicago between 1st and 3rd August, it should be good. Alternatively the Pitchfork Music Festival
is in Union Park in July. Spoon, Jarvis Cocker and Public Enemy are amongst the bands playing.
However Bermuda has it's very own music festival
in October and in an effort to bring a bit of Vegas to the island the Premier Ewart Brown is spashing out an incredible $2.2m
to bring Beyoncé, Alicia Keys and er, UB40 to play at the four-day event. Last year one of the headliners Natasha Bedingfield probably played for 20 Marlboro Lights and as much Pinot Grigio as she could drink.
I noticed that all of the tickets have already "sold out," shame because I'd wouldn't have minded catching Alicia Keys, although the Whispers play at the Fairmont Southampton
Beach Club on the Friday, and The Beat Goes On....
