Virgin Festival poll

With the massive two-day Virgin Fest coming to town this weekend, I'd like to take an informal poll.

Who are you looking forward to seeing the most? Are you going both days, or just one? Anybody you haven't seen you're really looking forward to seeing?

I'll be blogging from there all day Saturday. I'm wondering if Amy Winehouse is going to cancel the date last minute, or if she'll actually show up. I'd like to see her, the Police, Paolo Nutini, Modest Mouse, the Beastie Boys and Ben Harper.

I'll be working the fest at one of the main stage bars. Must say that I'm pretty disappointed at the main stage line-up on Sunday. 311, bad brains and matisyahu all on the second stage while garbage like panic at the disco is on the main one?!?! What's that about??

No complaints about Saturday though - it's stacked from start to finish. Sam, I'll save you the trouble...saw modest mouse at a festival before and they were terrible live. Have fun and don't forget to tip your bartenders!!!!

so greg.... free drinks for loyal midnightsun readers, i assume?

It's a concert, you will serve me my $7 beer and I will like it. I will not tip you. I'm not going to tip the nacho guy either. Its ur job, do it.

Also, most people don't know who Bad Brains or Matis are, hence why they ain't on the stage.

Tell u the truth $200 to go to a concert for the weekend is a little steep. But i'm a sucker.
