Live Music Events - What I Care to Share

I've decided that I will share with my followers in a series of blog entries my own personal experiences of live music performances.

This post is just to let you know and a bit of background on the matter.

In 2008 I attended my first major event...The Big Day Out Festival in Melbourne Australia. To those that aren't familiar with this festival it's, I believe , Australia's most famous, largest and one of the longest run music festivals. As the name suggests the festival goes pretty much for a full day. From memory you can get in at around 11am and depending who's playing and what's happening the last act has been known to finish at midnight....A BIG day out indeed.

Since then I have been to a number of other events and festivals including V Festival, Soundwave Festival, Trackside, Stonefest and Coaster.

Some acts I have seen live and will talk about in future posts include:

- Rage Against the Machine
- Rammstein
- Iggy and the Stooges
- Muse
- Andrew W.K.
- The Smashing Pumpkins
- Queens of the Stone Age
- The Prodigy
- Pendulum
- Dizzee Rascal
- Karnivool (Aussie Band - Do check them out if you haven't already)
- Anti-Flag
- Bullet for my Valentine
- The Ting Tings
- Dead Letter Circus

...and more.

As you can probably tell I have a wide ranging appreciation of music, so keep your eyes on this blog for original stories, photos, perhaps a video or two of artists you love that YOU WON'T SEE ANYWHERE ELSE!
