Heartland Festival in Vevey - Nov 10-13

Amazing festival celebrating Canadian independent music. Simply wicked lineup including Broken Social Scene, Owen Pallett (formerly known as Final Fantasy), The Hidden Cameras, Do Make Say Think, The Acorn and others.

Here's the lineup: http://www.soundsquixotic.com/festival/lineup/

Tickets are on sale now for 37 CHF for a single concert or 100 CHF for the entire thing (http://www.soundsquixotic.com/festival/tickets/)

More details can be found on the somewhat difficult to navigate festival wesbite (just hold the mouse over the festival header to see your different options): http://www.soundsquixotic.com/festival/

Let me know if you are coming along for a night or two and we can meet up!

Saw The Acorn at the Great Escape in Brighton either last year or the year before, I forget. They were great, would be well up for a trip to see them in Switzerland

Like the new BSS album too, will check and see if its a one nighter or make a weekend of it

Re: Heartland Festival in Vevey - Nov 10-13

I'm definitely going. Got B&B booked for two nights Friday and Saturday, ticket for the Friday (Broken Social Scene!) and will make a final decision on the Saturday regarding that night.

Saw The Acorn a couple of years ago at an End Of The Road Xmas gig which headlined the much-missed Broken Family Band and also featured The Accidental. Darren Hayman and Jeremy Warmsley doing a set of covers of Magnetic Fields songs. One of the best gigs ever. And I've been to a LOT of gigs. A lot.

If anyone has any bar / sights / comic shop / other recommendations then I'd be Vevey pleased to hear them
