The festival was over, the boys were all plannin' for a fall

I am going on holiday tomorrow after work. I am going to Holland to attend the Lowlands Music Festival. This will now be my sixth year. It such a great festival, all the big UK bands without the big crowds, it also focuses on up-and-coming acts rather than established ones, so there's always something randomnly entertaining to find. There is no better feeling than being blown away by a band that you've never heard of. They also have hot showers and have even introduced a coffee to your tent service which sounds amazing. It is far more civilised than English festivals.
If you're interested in the festival, you can see some photos here of what it has been like in the past. Here is some of the line-up...(drum roll):
iForward Russia!
Arctic Monkeys
Be Your Own Pet
Belle & Sebastian
Bloc Party
Dirty Pretty Things
DJ Shadow
The Dead 60s
Fun Lovin' Criminals
Hot Chip
Iggy & the Stooges (v.excited!)
The Kooks
Less than Jake
Massive Attack
The Magic Numbers
Panic! At the Disco
The Raconteurs
Scissor Sisters
The Streets
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Zero 7
