2013 Summer Festival Preview: Canadian Edition
There’s a golden rule of seeing music live that says that all music sounds better in the gloaming of a warm summer evening. Nothing quite matches the experience of laying back on the grass as the stars reveal their centuries old light to the naked eye and listening to your favourite songs. I have such fond recollections of The Tragically Hip’s Roadside Attraction festivals from my early 20s that I more or less refuse to see the band indoors: I don’t want to spoil the memories of hearing Wheat Kings wafting through a magical summer night.
It’s June, and that means that its the start of summer festival season–or at least the start of planning it. Early bird tickets have probably been on sale for a while for most festivals and you’ll need to get vacation booked from work, so you better plan ahead.
