Column by Richard Thomas at The Wire online about being unsatisfied by the "the consumer feeding frenzies unleashed by music festival programmers out to fill every seat at the table":
"The[se festivals] are predicated upon the concept of the cornucopia: an eclectic assortment of artists all in one place over one weekend.... There is no concept other than a supermarket-like offering: lots of popular products in one space.... These festivals... act as trusted cultural aggregators for fans happy to be treated as herd-like consumers getting everything on a plate in an all you can eat buffet of nothing."
"All you can eat buffet of nothing" - sentennnnnnnnnce!
And lots more acerbic thoughts and phrasings in here (although not everyone would agree, indeed one hostile commenter calls it "a shocking hamfisted screed"! and most of those who saw fit to comment disagree with Thomas's contentions)
Such as "NCP: No Concept Programming"
