A stag weekend trip to Hamburg (a frustrating 70km away from the Hurricane festival) means I will not be around this weekend for FNM’s Teutonic triple-whammy of festival dates. I hope to provide some news though via Blackberry. Here’s some links and news that should help.
As always check Stubbadub and CacaVolante for news too. I’ll also be on Twitter here and regular commenter here tbeest is always quick with the set list news.
Nova Rock: Festival site is here. Not sure if they’ll have many updates and no live video is planned. Austrian TV station ORF has a preview here. It reports that tickets are still on sale so if you fancy seeing FNM on a smaller stage on the same night as Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and Slipknot you can still make it.
Hurricane Festival: FNM move on to the Hurricane Festival near Bremen in Germany on Saturday night, headlining the main stage at 23.00 after the Pixies and Social Distortion. Again tickets are still on sale with day tickets at €75. The Hamburger Morgenposten have a preview here.
Southside festival: Then its off to sister festival Southside in the south of Germany on Sunday. Its a similar bill to Hurricane with FNM on the main stage at 22.00. Again tickets are still on sale from local ticket outlets and at the festival site.
It seems that German TV channels ZDF and Arte will be filming both Hurricane and Southside for transmission in a series of programmes in August on ZDF anda 90-minute special in November on Arte. More here.
