Does anyone know of any good bands touring in Spain, France or England this summer?? My friends and are going June 25-July 31 and trying to find some good shows to go to in various places, as it's a great way to meet like minded people...

A few of my favorites will be over there, just not in the right cities at the right time suggestions?

What type of music do you like?

In summer, the festival is king. Great electronic festivals in Spain, killer rock festivals in England. Pick a genre, and there's going to ba festival... Or one that's all encompassing. They're by far the best way to see a bunch of bands in Europe at once. We've got one Tpunk hitting up the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age and Motorhead in Hyde Park. If I had the time and money, I'd be heading over for the O2 Wireless Festival, Pukkelpop, Sonar... you name it.

Try efestivals.co.uk for a jumping off point...

thanks for the hints everyone, we like all sorts of music, as long as it's good, haha. I was hoping to go to Sonar in Spain but I don't think it's going to happen timing wise, and one of my faves Daedelus is playing a lot but never in the right cities for us. And Sigur Ros is playing all sorts of shows that come close to matching up with what we're doing but not quite! damn!

Robbie Williams is touring western Europe right now.

Look at what being in Oz long enough has done to me! I used to laugh at him like every other American; now I want to go see him!

daedelus is uber neat. flexibility is key here for sure. if all your dates are set, search showlists for specific cities. ie barcelona? http://www.bcninternet.com/touristin...bject=Concerts
