There are a lot of music festivals coming up all over the world. After all, summer is the best time to enjoy live music: under the stars and with friends.
While there are so many great events like Download, Sweden Rock, Wacken Open Air, Heavy Mtl, Rocklahoma, South Texas Rock Fest, Bonnaroo and more...a lot of people are disgusted with their respective line-ups. The chances of you finding a festival with your personal dream line-up are slim to none. I want to attend every festival I just mentioned - but there are bands on every single roster I can do without. Such is life.
With that said, why not create a Fantasy Festival? If you were a promoter - and money was seriously no object but you still wanted to sell tickets - who would you book, and why?
We'll say the Bring Back Glam! Festival is three days. Here's my list in no particular order:
Queen with George Michael
Bullet for My Valentine
Pretty Boy Floyd
Vains of Jenna
Blue Oyster Cult
I think it's safe to say I have a diverse list of Metal here. Since we're dealing in fantasy, I am going to set my festival smack dab in the middle of Maui. If this were an actual festival line-up in Maui, your tickets would probably cost $800 - but in BBG! fantasy land, I'll sell you a seat for $300. I promise you'll get leied!
So, do you think you can create a better festival? I dare you.
