ØYA 2009's Insanely Huge Line-Up Released



Although we were jealous of those who attended Barcelona's Primavera Sound festival a couple weeks back, we were also a bit skeptical.  Why go to Europe to see a festival whose lineup is almost entirely American bands?  Over the course of this summer every one of those bands will be a quick subway ride away.  It's like how our BBC and New York Times RSS feeds are almost identical.  Where's the regional pride?

Answer: at the ØYA 2009 festival.  With a ton of American and English heavy hitters (Wilco, Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, Beirut, etc.), and a fair share of domestic acts, the August festival's line-up is so hot that nearby glaciers will likely sink into the ocean and cause massive flooding - or maybe not, we did skip most of our environmental science classes.  Hey, where else will you get to see Beach House share the stage with bands called Slagsmålsklubben and Snöras?  Full schedule of over 200 bands is below.
