Virgin Festival

virginfestival.jpgSound fun? Vancouver’s getting it’s very own Virgin Festival this coming May long weekend (May 20-21) at Thunderbird Stadium. My Chemical Romance, The Killers, AFI, Muse, Hot Hot Heat and Billy Talent will headline along with other acts announced closer to the date.

Just like the Toronto festival, Vancouver’s will include an interactive V-Village with vendors, food, hair stylists, tattoo artists and massage services…

…In the UK, where the V Festival has been an annual event since 1996, more than 130,000 fans flock to two locations. Similar festivals were added to several U.S. cities and to Toronto last year.

Tickets for Vancouver’s inaugural Virgin Festival go on sale Feb. 3 at 10:00 am at all Ticketmaster outlets. One-day passes are $39.93 plus $1.00 for the Virgin Unite charity and a $2.25 facility fee. [Canada.com]

If you are a Fox Rocks Club member, you get $10 off AND a pre-sale starting next week.

Although the festival circuit has its pros and cons, I’m most excited to see Muse. The ‘most exciting live act out of Britain today’ isn’t having the best luck with sales of the new album Black Holes and Revelations in Canada so maybe that’s why their participation on this tour is overshadowed by Billy Talent and the Killers. It’s a shame, but at least they’ll be coming to Vancouver this spring.
