Festivals are a nessessary evil. Cheap to "turn up and do", it gets you to a wider audience and in turn raises your profile.
I personally hate festivals and everything about them. The people it attracts, the food, the god awful other bands, the toilets, the overpriced warm beer.
is is and isnt isnt

Festivals are "easy" (good) money. Last time they played The Roskilde Festival in Denmark they apparently recieved 150k.

I don't like festivals. I have seen the boys at Ruisrock, Õllesummer and Storsjöyran festivals (and 6 other gigs) but I still prefer arena gigs. The atmosphere is completely different.

I've seen the Pet shop boys 3 times but I've not seen them for over 20 years!
Just booked to see them at Bingley, not too far away from me, only booked one ticket, can't get anyone else to come with me(my friends have such bad taste in music) and there may not be many more opportunities to see them again.
I'm very excited though

Wow, all I have to say is the crowd tonight in Utrecht was simply spectacular! The venue was a bit too small but man, it was a full-on 'banging with lasers and strobe' rave! The Dutch know how to appreciate PSB!

It was a great gig. I was a few meters before the stage. The floor was bouncing so hard of all the people jumping, I didn't need to jump :-D

Review of first Utrecht concert:

Positive, which is good news, since synthpop is a taboo here. Oh, and it's in Dutch. Long live Google translate.

Ironically enough I have found PSB to be are their very best at festivals, as the penny drops from people that they are not a) a guilty pleasure and b) EXACTLY how many songs they have. Their o2 show was one of the worst gigs I have ever been to for the crowd, and cannot wait to see them at Festival No.6 which is easily the best festival I've ever been to

I was there at the front and people started throwing hats on stage and then t-shirts!
It was fun to see Neil pick up a t-shirt and twirl it around......great gig :D
