Oh I have a love hate relationship with websites that play music when you open them. Sometimes I'm trying to do things with a little stealth people. But, I found a good one: The Sasquatch Festival , killer tunes. Nice work guys. Of course I really (really) want to go to this festival at the end of May in Seattle but I'm not sure the Big Bad Money Monkeys will let me. Damn BBM-Monkeys. I would also love to go to Coachella in California, but the BBM-Monkeys. We did get to the wicked Exit Music Festival in Serbia last June, which honestly was sooooo much fun. I still think my fav is the Meredith Music Festival in Melbourne though, it's relaxed and easy and fun.

It would be great to finish our round the world trip with a music festival, but then again Mexico and tacos, mojitos and sombreros are pretty damn good too. And to be honest with you I'm a pretty lucky girl I've been to heaps of festivals in my time including Exit in Serbia, Nibe in Denmark and the Mogul Smoker here in Fernie (at -40 degrees!). But if I could I would go to these ones (including all the ones I've mentioned already - read: to lazy to retype!) :

* Roskilde, Denmark - because I wasn't allowed to go in 2000 when Pearl Jam played

*Electric Picnic, Ireland - because I didn't get to go last year and it sounded awesome via the radio

* Burning Man Festival, Nevada - because it would be like no other music/art festival

* Glastonbury, England - because I should, really.

* Blues and Roots, Byron Bay - because I really like blues and roots and don't listen to it enough

* Mt Fuji Rock Festival, Japan - because Japanese bands are crazy and ski hills in summer are beautiful

* Queenscliff Music Festival, Victoria - because it's so chilled

* Sziget, Budapest - because Hungry is the coolest place

* Pukkelpop, Belgium - because Jono went and said it was wicked

* Sweden Rock Festival, Sweden - because Sweden has the best rock bands i.e. The Hives

All this talk of festivals and this guy has written a book! A Year of Festivals by Jarvis Hammond. I know what book I will be reading next. What a great idea. Nice one Jarvis.

I'd really like to go to Coachella or SXSW cause they sound really cool!

I just totally updated my blog roll so I can check in on you!

Hope you're well! Looks a little cold for big fashion though! I'd not survive!
