I prefer to monitor the summer festivals on the radio and the internet. Music festivals are more like a mega-party these days. It's not about the music anymore and that's a pity. Moreover it's expensive. Sure, I missed some nice concerts again at this weekend's Pukkelpop festival. Sonic Youth played Daydream Nation. And there was Cocorosie, one of the most exciting bands around these days. Are the Casidy sisters weird or just plain nuts? I don't know but you really have to check them out. The Hairnet Paradise video is a good start. It's amazing what they do with a kazoo and a couple of toys.
