Listen to the Fans, Get Our Bands!

I know I said to look out for the headliners post today, but I'm writing with little time so, instead, I'm going to share the bands that I (and some friends of mine) would like to see play at next year's Bunbury festival. There will be another post with their comments as well...but that will include what they did and did not like, as well as the bands they loved seeing during the first year of Bunbury. Keep an eye out!



Next year I'd like to see bands like Band of Horses, Arcade Fire, and Fleet Foxes if possible. I think they would really mix well with the type of music we had this year.

-Kyle Greely


Really loved Margot & the Nuclear So and So's, 1,2,3, Airborne Toxic Event, Neon Trees, and Grouplove. Would love to see them all come back, actually, but would love to see some new bands play, too!

-Chelsea from The Glitter Pox


Not including the bands I enjoyed this year, I'd really like to see The Spill Canvas, Armor for Sleep, and Ed Sheeran next year! With someone like Kevin Devine playing this year, it made me realize that Ed Sheeran would probably fit in quite well at Bunbury.

-Lauren Becker


I would also like to see Ed Sheeran play next year, as well as Mayday Parade and Paramore.

-Kari Becker


Who do you want to see?!

Even if you live too far (and are unable to travel) to attend next year's Bunbury, what bands would you like to see rock it out?

Bunbury was great!!! I'm so glad I got to be a part of it... I would LOVE to see Edward Sharpe, Two Door Cinema Club, The XX, Shiny Toy Guns, Walk The Moon, Avett Brothers, Mumford, Robyn, Marina and The Diamonds, Florence and The Machines, He Is We, Jack White and whoever else we can get!

I'd go to see Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, and Grouplove. All three are groups I like and haven't seen live before.

Ohhh, this is so cool! I've actually never heard of Bunbury before (that just shows you how out of it I am since I'm a radio and contemporary kind of music listener) but I like the idea of a whole bunch of bands coming together to play :) The only one I really recognize is Paramore, but if anyone can play, I think my friend and his band would rock it! x)

I can tell you're a music girl, Lauren! Getting more into that kind of stuff is my goal for the summer :) <3

Would love to see Weezer again. But how about Modest Mouse, the Black Keys, Radiohead (I know its a stretch) or how about The Killers, maybe Noel Gallagher.

MGMT - obsessed! :)

Oh, Arcade Fire! My friend mentioned it once and he said the music is worth-listening. I guess I need to borrow his ipod and listened to their songs! Paramore is another band I recognized from the list too - their songs are amazing! <3

I can't wait to read another post about Bunbury Music Festival, Lauren! Hopefully you can brighten me up to my next favorite songs! <3

I need to look up some of these bands. I do enjoy Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, and Grouplove.
