Virgin Festival Toronto 2007- Worth The Money!

Bjork is the Glow in the Middle
Back in- oh, I don’t know- March? I purchased tickets online for Vfest, and I didn’t pick them up until last week… I missed out on the anticipation having the tix in hand brings! Regardless, this weekend on the island was an awesome time. I got to hang out with Bex, who’s become fairly sparse as of late (stupid Toronto FC calendar, stealing my Bex away)… the weather was beautiful on Saturday, and bearable on Sunday (it didn’t rain on us at all, thank god!), and the music, obviously, kicked ass.

Toronto Island Sunset with Couple SilhouettedSaturday, we managed to catch the Arctic Monkeys, Interpol, a wicked sunset, some crazy Canadian Geese, and then Bjork with her outrageous gold lamé dress and mind-blowing reacTable

Stripes
Sunday, we headed over earlier (tried to, anyways), and caught a bit of Tokyo Police Club, Stars, some cow porn at the Centreville Petting Zoo, The Killers, Editors, and then the grand finale- the Smashing Pumpkins.

Man, I’m tired now. Still!

  1. That was an awesome weekend!!!Good call on getting the tickets so early in the year!Bjork and the Pumpkins rocked the fricking house!! Bjork blew my mind with her ‘dj’ was using the reactable. Her voice is so distinct and haunting.I can still hear her wailing those Icelandic high notes.It was such a different vibe the following day when the pumpkins came on. Their overpowering rock & roll presence just screamed ‘WE ARE THE FUCKING PUMPKINS’ yeah baby!! Total powerhouse.I totally did not feel let down this time I saw them. I enjoyed the fact they played a little something something from each album. I almost died when they played Hummer and By Starlight.All in all a great weekend was had. Enjoyed each day and the company!!!My back still hurts from standing, but it was all worth it!!

  2. Yeah!! I’m totally still tired… I afraid I’m gonna get sick! But again, it was all worth it. The waiting in line, the price, etc. etc. I think though, if I ever go again… I’m really gonna try and get there for when the gates open! And check out some more of the non-main-stage bands.

  3. Here’s the Pumpkin’s set:United States > Star Spangled Banner > O Canada Bullet with Butterfly Wings That’s the Way (My Love Is) Neverlost Hummer Stand Inside Your Love Tonight, Tonight Tarantula Starz Zero Glass + The Ghost Children By Starlight > To Sheila 1979 Superchrist Doomsday Clock Heavy Metal Machine Encore :Today Bex
