Alright, who’s planning for festival season right now?
True, Coachella is already over for the year, but if you’re getting amped to pack up the car (or bus) for Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, or any of the many festivals out there, then let’s get amped together!
To start, I wanted to share some of my favorite festival movies, and a few I just discovered. From documentary to mockumentary, there are some really great flicks that will surely get you online to buy your tix! Let us begin from the beginning:
Fest Movie 101: Woodstock the Movie I think it’s time to see this three hour masterpiece that harkens back to the days of your parents. Get a cool blast from the past, enjoy the music, and you will totally have something to talk about the next time you have dinner with your folks!
Take Two: Taking Woodstock Maybe you’re not into all that old footage. Check out the movie Taking Woodstock, where Demetri Martin plays Elliot Tiber; the young genius who managed to bring the infamous festival to his home town. Crush Alert: Both Emile Hirsch and Jonathan Groff (who starred in several episodes of Glee) are in this film, and cute beyond belief!!!!
Fruit and LOTS of Cheese: Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo This is the funniest darn mockumentary starring Les Claypool (of Primus) and tons of other rockers. The plot: small time jam band, Electric Apricot, gets their first chance to play as opener in the elusive festival of all festivals “Festeroo”. Filmed at the High Sierra Music Festival, this one is tons of laughs. Just check out the trailer and you’ll see!
Many of the real fests have their own documentaries as well. Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and Coachella all have their own and if you’re truly a fanatic, you’ve probably seen them.
Have you been to any of these or other music festivals?
