Create your own music festival! What would YOUR ultimate line-up (list of bands) be?


The Floo Network [destrokkin'] asked:

Okay so I though this would be a really fun thing to do….. and I’m going to do it, even if no one else answers XD

It’s for a festival or music event.
Make it as SIMPLE or as DETAILED as you want.

You must include:
1. The name of the festival
2. Top Ten bands you want at your festival
3. Location (in a hall, outside, on a beach)
4. The festival’s ‘dress code’ (smart, casual etc)
BONUS – anything else you want to include?

Okay, here’s mine.
1. Jay’s by the Sea

2. MGMT, The Drums, Passion Pit, Bloc Party, Empire of the Sun, Vampire Weekend, Florence + the Machine, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and finally Lisa Mitchel (not that she is near my favourite, but she’s a great festival chick)

3. It would be on the beach, in the summer

4. Casual, (must wear something Floral or a head scarf)

Bonus… There would be many different stages, probably 5. Then two bands would be allocated to a set stage for the day and they would alternate every few songs.
No set seating and no VIP sections.
