Personally, I am yet to attend Outlook festival. Last year, my tuxedo wasn’t ready in time and I simply couldn’t turn up in the same one I’d worn to the summer ball. My darling Miffy would have been too embarrassed to even look at me and I daren’t imagine what her father would have said…
Anyway, announced today, the line-up for this year’s Outlook festival is bigger than the ego of the guy who invented bacon. Featuring Fat Freddy’s Drop, Phife from Tribe, Scuba, DMZ, The Bug and a hell of a lot more, I would be able to feel my money getting ready for lift-off if I had any.
Of the vast and illustrious catalogue on offer, some personal favourites are Fantastic Mr Fox, Phaeleh, xxxy, Dark Sky, Mosca and Kuedo…but picking favourites out of a line-up like this is like Scrooge McDuck selecting his favourite gold coins from that huge fucking pile he’s always diving about in (with no trousers on, I must add).
Below is a video documenting the highs of Outlook 2011 and the entire line-up announced today lies after the jump. The official website isn’t up yet but you can head over to the Outlook Tumblr for updates.
