#4 Spot: Double weekends. The final performance of Swedish House Mafia. Deadmau5 to close out both Saturday nights. Ultra is cranking out news at a fast and furious pace for 2013.

#7 Spot: Hey. Wanna see the lineup for Noise Pop 2013?

#10 and #11 Spot: Here’s a smart move in a crowded festival season — move to the uncrowded months like the dual combo Snowball and Snowglobe Festivals which combine skiing, snowboarding, and music.

#14 Spot: I once had to piss so bad that I used the janitor’s sink in the original CBGB. True story. Anyway, the festival will return in 2013.

#19 Spot: Do you have what it takes to win the Ms. Suwannee River Jam contest? Do I have what it takes to not spend the next hour “researching” the Ms. Suwannee River Jam?

 

 

 

#24 Spot: Osheaga has posted a big old photo gallery from 2012 to get you stoked for next year.

#28 Spot: That’s a funny name. Here’s how Perry Ferrel came with it.

#29 Spot: Sonisphere UK was cancelled. Boo. Sonisphere Italy still on. Yay.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#40 Spot: Yoga plus Hawaii plus mellow music. You will become so relaxed that you’ll slip into a coma.

 

 

#46 Spot: One of the anchors of the World’s Loudest Month.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
