next weekend... start the festival season

Festival organisers have decreed that summer is here. Next weekend's Essential Music Festival opens the season, and from then it keeps going until the end of August, seemingly without a break.

In this draconian, raveless age, and with no Glastonbury, we need at least one proper festival - an event where all the different dance music tribes can gather, if not under one roof, then in one field. Still, promoter Vince Power, owner of almost every London venue, probably sowed the seeds of this disaster last year when he won a court case against the police allowing his Reading festival to go ahead. The boys in blue are not good losers, and the traffic objection, which cancelled Tribal Gathering, was surely a settling of scores. How petty.
