Chris: “I’m a Virgin Festival media pass virgin. Looking forward to that first time”. I’ll be walking around the festival asking that same question, can’t wait to see what kind of video responses I get.
Super pumped to check out this weekend’s Virgin Festival in Toronto. 2 days, 3 stages, 1 DJ tent, a crapload of great bands and DJs and a slew of logos, endorsements, gadgets, booths, sunburns and stylish sunglasses. If you’re going, you might find this handy (map).
Bands I’m Looking Forward to seeing the most.
Saturday: Flash Lightnin, Constantines, MGMT, Wintersleep, Kooks, Foo Fighters with trips into the Bacardi Tent for sets by Lets Go To War, Thunderheist, Flosstradamus, Sebastien and Switch.
Sunday: Winter Gloves, Paper Lions, Sebastien Grainger and the Mountains, IMF faves Arkells, Silversun Pickups, Stereophonics, Sons and Daughters, The Pigeon Detectives and some little band known as Oasis.
Plus leaving room for surprises. There is a bunch of bands on the bill that I really don’t know well at all. Lets see what they can do.
