V-Fest 2008 (Toronto)

Okay, so V-fest is back this year on Sept 6 and 7th at the Toronto Islands and the main performers have been announced.

The first day so far consists of the Foo Fighters, Bloc Party, Spiritualized, Wintersleep and the Constantines.

The second day will feature Oasis, Paul Weller (formerly of the Jam), Stereophonics, the Weakerthans and the Pigeon Detectives.

There are alot of decisively established British and Anglophilic bands and while I'm a huge fan of Britpop and British music, compared to last year's lineup of the Smashing Pumpkins, Interpol and the Killers etc., I'm not sure how I feel about this year's lineup. I like most of the bands playing this year, but it doesn't jump out at me just yet.

More performers will be added to the list, but if you've already made up your mind, tickets are going on sale this saturday at $159 for both days and $87 for just Saturday or Sunday.
