Hey guys just wondering if anyone has any hot tips for concerts and music festivals in happening in Europe this Summer, particularly June and July.

Let's try and get a list going so no one misses a gig

If you are in Amsterdam check out: http://www.heineken-music-hall.nl/agenda.php , http://www.paradiso.nl , http://www.melkweg.nl/voorpagina.jsp .

So far, we have tickets to see the Chemical Brothers in Amsterdam at the end of June. I know they are old school, but I used to do a ton of X listening to these guys, so I figure a show in A Dam would be sweet.
There is also this Rock Festival in the Netherlands http://www.fieldsofrock.nl

Thats what I've got so far

Thanks for the awesome links guys.

I'm gonna book myself a Chemical Brothers ticket. Marc do you know what the 'cancellation insurance' is? Is that insurance for them cancelling the show or me cancelling the ticket?

Also MeTurk can I assume you'll be getting down to the friends of Ted festival?

Let's keep the links coming guys and see if we can cover the whole summer.

I'm pretty sure the insurance is if the band cancels. No promises though. Sounds like a TPunk meetup in Amsterdam end of June is in the works. We are flying back into A Dam from Greece the day of the concert, staying for 2 days then off the Haarlem for 2 days.

Yeah that sounds about right.

A meet-up sounds good to me. I'm not sure when I'm flying in yet but have to get back to London to leave on my Running of the Bulls trip shortly afterwords.

Hope so, I didn't know it was going ahead til I found that link. I had heard there was two islands fighting over which one was the real craggie island but it looks like that been settled.
