The Perfect Bloodbuzzed Music Festival

Yesterday, on a radio programme, some music journalists talked about their perfect Festival line-up. Social networks also had their say, and aside of an entertaining hour, it forced me to think what would be mine. Took me a while, but I finally have my selection.

To be "professional", I considered a "draft" schedule and copied the five-day structure of this year's Primavera Sound Festival, with a very special line-up on the opening and closing days. It has been impossible to include everyone, but it has been a lot of fun doing it. Welcome to the first edition of Bloodbuzzed Music Festival!
