We’re only like a month into the festival rumor mill and I already feel like I’m repeating myself. But here it goes anyway… things are getting busy, really busy! This week, we have lineup news and rumors for a few of the worlds biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Coachella, T in the Park, and Ultra Music Festival. Plus, some of our favorite mid-tier extravaganzas made news too, though thanks to the injury sustained by Devo’s Bob Mothersbaugh, it wasn’t really for the best.
We also have a few Consequence of Sound-related updates. Like, for example, don’t forget to attend our MoogFest kickoff party, which takes place TOMORROW! Also, for your tweeting pleasures, we recently gave the Festival Outlook its very own Twitter account. So if you’re interested in instant festival updates, follow this bad boy now.
