Big Love Festival
Who’s planning on going to this?
Official site: Big Love Festival
Here’s the electronic stage lineup:
Plus a bunch of crooning Asian radio pop acts that no one here probably gives a shit about. The full lineup is on the official website linked above. The festival is headlined by Blue, the UK’s answer to the Backstreet Boys.
Time: all day, starting June 21st through June 24th
Cost: 300 / day or 800 / all four days
They have RFID wristbands this year like Coachella:June 7, 2012 at 2:43 am #8855
300 big ones is a bit rich for my blood, but i was once a reasonably big Suede fan (the band, not the fabric). if scalpers offer 200, maybe….June 7, 2012 at 4:38 am #19259
Old school rock for me, I’ll go to check out Ash and Extreme.
Saw Ash a few times at festivals and a one off gig at Somerset House in London which was special. Good live but Tim’s voice is a bit weak away from the studio.June 7, 2012 at 11:04 am #19269
I”m in. Although it is expensive, I didn’t get to go to Zebra this year so Big Love is my only chance for a summer festival.June 8, 2012 at 12:03 am #19275
I’ll unfortunately be in Hangzhou/Shanghai that weekend but might I recommend to everyone to check out a band called 山人, they’re playing on the Saturday I think.. they are a seriously awesome folk group out of Yunnan, use a big variety of instruments and have great tunes. If someone can pick up one of their CDs for me as well I will pay you back for it plus a generous tip!June 8, 2012 at 5:31 am #19277
Will Blue wear leather pants for their performance?! I’m so in if they do! :/Off with their heads!!June 8, 2012 at 6:47 am #19278
More importantly, will they oil up their naked torsos?June 8, 2012 at 7:41 am #19283
@brendan: maybe he can give you some waxing tips. Some pretty impressive manscaping going on there…SMOOOOOOTHHHHJune 8, 2012 at 9:24 am #19284
going there for the rock & roll not the electro folks.
panda tent WAS the zebra music festival, at least big love is pulling in some talented shredders, punk rockers and badass babes.June 8, 2012 at 10:08 am #19285
Hey, contemplating going, 300 a bit pricy though. What day/night would you recommend out of the 4?June 10, 2012 at 4:50 am #19300
Dont think 300 is too bad, promoters obviously spending a small fortune with flying in and paying for foreign acts, venue hire, and all the other million other things that need to be bought, hired and promoted to run a festival. 300rmb for a full days entertainment sounds pretty good to me.June 10, 2012 at 4:54 am #19301
Andy, its more about my funding than the lack of lineup, organisation, etc Don’t really know many of the bands, so any recommendations would be good… I usually like more rock/acoustic than electro… but pretty open…usually like festivals, though haven’t been to one here yet.June 10, 2012 at 5:04 am #19302Quote:Hey, contemplating going, 300 a bit pricy though.

Saturday is the day that me and most of my friends are going. Most of us have to work on Thursday and Friday and Sunday at festivals is usually beat. Justin (Bix Snax) and I are holding down the electronic area from 2-5pm.June 12, 2012 at 6:24 am #19336
Friday 6/22 most people should be off for the Dragon Boat public holiday. I think Friday and Saturday will be the most crowded.June 12, 2012 at 6:46 am #19338June 12, 2012 at 5:29 pm #19340
