Is it just me or has there been an explosion of new music festivals in recent years? If you don't believe me take journey over to the Live Music Blog and search for the word "festival". The nice thing about all of these new festivals is that no matter where you live you are probably within driving distance to one. Currently I'm making plans with some friends to head over to Wakarusa which will once again be held in Lawrence, KS.
The appeals of festivals are many but one big draw is that you get to see a lot of your favorite bands in one trip and also get exposure to new bands that you might not otherwise have seen live. From a live music taping perspective an additional benefit of the festival scene is that the taping policy of the festival will often times trump that of each band or record label. The result is that live recordings of bands that don't usually taped get injected into the taping community.
The band I am featuring in this episode is one such example. Despite very few live recordings in circulation, here is Neil Young and Crazy Horse live from Bonnaroo 2003.
