Thanks TCB, I already did the same and it translated only the band names, none of the venue details.

Yeah it was busy alright, perhaps too busy. The old Truman Brewary building goes off most weekends, it's just less of a ball ache crowd wise.

Anyone trying for Glastonbury tickets on Sunday? Daft Punk are rumoured to be playing which would be insane. Tickets go on sale @ 9:00AM

Yeah. I had a brief moment of insanity where I thought I might skip this year, then concluded that going to both Glasto and Bestival is the only solution.

Cool If the weather is good Glastonbury is arguably the best music festival out there. If it rains, it's like fucking WW1. Still willing to give it another go though.

The problem is that it's been dry about 2 times since 1995.

Is Fuji Rock good? I've got this idea there'll be loads of Japanese people looking down on me if I go there and get battered.

2010 was insane, something like 1000+ cases of sunstroke apparently. Had tan marks for a year afterwards where I missed patches with the suncream.

2011 was… not so hot, though the blazing sun came out for the last 2 days.

It looks amazing, the view of Mt Fuji is insane. Total opposite of an English festival though in many ways, apparently there's absolutely zero litter left.
