My ideal Music Festival lineup

July 11, 2010 | Filed Under Popculture | No Comments

I’ve been at the Ottawa Bluesfest this week – which technically has become less and less of a Blues festival and more and more of a generic music festival over the years…  In any case, this week it’s been great acts like Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the B52’s, Metric, Roger Hodgson (doing much of his old Supertramp stuff), and Moody Blues.  As you can tell, they are all bands that have been around a while, (with the exception of Metric).  I’ve gone to see a few newer bands like Down With Webster, but for the most part, this festival really plays to the boomer generation.  (Last year KISS was one of the headliners).

Don’t get me wrong, I love the old stuff and am very much enjoying the shows, however, I do prefer to listen to the new alt-rock radio stations rather than the “classic rock” stations.  And as such,  if I were to pick my dream lineup for a music festival, I know that most of my friends would have no idea who these artists are.

So here is my dream music festival lineup (not in any particular order):

Muse
Mika
The New Pornographers
Arcade Fire (playing at Bluesfest yeah!)
Scissor Sisters
HelloGoodbye
OK Go
Arctic Monkeys
Fratellis
Billy Talent
Franz Ferdinand
Gnarls Barkley
Modest Mouse
Vampire Weekend
Watchmen
Spoon
MGMT
Fallout Boy
Hot Hot Heat
Garbage
Interpol
Gwen Stefani
The Strokes

If you hear of a festival where most of these bands are playing, do let me know…
