Festivals in Brief: Lollapalooza, Sasquatch!, Primavera Sound

on October 20, 2010, 4:45pm

So, uh, we’re officially busy.

Not only are we fully immersed in the alcohol fueled bender known as CMJ 2010 — which we helped kick off! — but the inaugural MoogFest is just a week away. By the way, did you know we’re having a party there too?

And all that comes on top off a Festival Outlook section which is getting busier by the day. As of yesterday, four of country’s biggest festivals — Coachella, Sasquatch!, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza — have rumors, with more names sure to be added in the days to come.

Sounds daunting, right? Well, good think we sum it all up in a weekly feature we like to call “Festivals in Brief.”

— On Monday, we helped kick off CMJ 2010 with the 12th annual Conflict of Interest party. Here’s our review, as well as a video recap.
