Post image for are you going to glasto?

one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated music festivals in the world starts tomorrow – glastonbury!  located on worthy farm in pilton, glastonbury has been going on since 1970 – the day after jimi Hendrix died, to be exact.  it has come a long way since its first year, when attendance was only 1500 and the cost of entry was one pound (which included free milk from the farm). now there are too many artists playing to even list, and tickets are extremely hard to come by – but i can see why. it is definitely on my list of festivals that i must attend at some point in my life.

it reminds me of bonnaroo but on a much bigger scale – a farm that transforms into its own bohemian world of music, dancing, laughter and lights. and maybe some mud…

love that last photo…those girls have the right idea!

some of the many acts playing at this year’s glastonbury: gorillaz, muse, stevie wonder, flaming lips, phoenix, the national, lcd soundsystem, mgmt, grizzly bear, black keys, mumford & sons, the xx, julian casablancas, broken social scene, mos def, george clinton with parliament, toots & the maytals, loudon wainwright III, broken bells, local natives, beach house…and many, many more. sigh.

are you going? who are you excited to see? be our eyes and ears… and feel free to send photos to blog@freepeople.com :)

top two images from the glastonbury scrapbook.

i know its not the easiest to see, but the girl on the left’s hat is rad – check out the pattern on the underside of the brim.

tunesday

this album came out a couple of weeks ago but i never got a chance to write about it – it’s ok though because if there was a soundtrack to the americana trend, blitzen trapper would be on it (oh wait, they are…).  their music is a mix of indie, folk, rock and country- sort of like mumford and sons, who i wrote about last week, but a little more upbeat and fun and with some definite 60s influence. perfect for a picnic in the sun or a drive across the broad american landscape.  just put on their tune “wild mountain nation” and you’ll get the idea- and their second album also had the amazing song “furr” on it, which i still adore.  listen to some of their tunes below, including new songs “destroyer of the void” and  “heaven and earth.” also check out the video for “furr”, i love it.

“Furr” by Blitzen Trapper from Jade Harris on Vimeo.

directed by jade harris, the video is made up of over 3000 photos and took about two months to create. no animation programs or photoshop elements were used – the entire video is made out of compiled paper.

Post image for rocky mountain high

anyone heading to the telluride bluegrass festival this weekend? i wish i was…there are a couple of bands playing that i really like, and it looks so beautiful and relaxing there – it definitely seems to draw a really laid back, hippie crowd.  colorado is one of the few states in the US i’ve never been to, and i really want to change that very soon…

among the bands playing are alison krauss, yonder mountain string band, bela fleck, edward sharpe and mumford and sons!

Post image for tunesday

bonnaroo really threw me off… i’m all discombobulated. but its tunesday so i wanted to post about one of the bands we saw this weekend that really rocked – mumford & sons! a friend actually recommended them to me a little while back, i listened to a couple of their songs, but wasn’t blown away. after seeing them live my opinion totally changed. they were definitely one of the high points of the weekend and they got the crowd really amped up – surprising for a band who’s music is pretty mellow, a mix of folk rock and a little bit of bluegrass.  it doesn’t hurt that they’re also adorable :)

here are some photos from their bonnaroo show (not taken by me, from the bonnaroo website):

untitled

now listen to a few songs from their album sigh no more – the last song on the playlist, “lover of the light,” is a new song that they played at bonnaroo and i LOVED it. let me know what you think!
