Check out the list of acts coming up over the next couple of days and set your DVR to record the ones that catch your fancy.

Once they’re all recorded, you’re ready to play them back and pretend you’re throwing your very own music festival.

First invite a bunch of friends over (you can charge them if you want, it depends on how good a friend they are).

Next, make them stand all squashed together for about 8 hours while they watch and charge them five bucks for a bottle of water (even more for snacks).

If you really want to make the experience authentic, invite one or two street people to join in the fun and add that special festival crowd aroma.

See, making your own fun is easy. This recession is gonna be a blast!
