Why am I still in New Zealand, when Europe is clearly where it’s AT?! （/TДT)/
Since the coming months are summer for the northern hemisphere, this means 1340983 announcements of awesome festivals in countries I don’t live in. Similar to my SW Revolution post, here are five festivals whose lineups have been announced that I wouldn’t mind attending 😉 After all, I’ve never lived the festival experience, where you stay and camp in the venue and run from stage to stage… Sounds like so much fun /sigh
