ok i think coachella has a great solid lineup, but the headliners are not strong at all compared to lollapalooza. and lollapalooza has done a good job with lower acts. so lolla gets the vote for now... coachella a close second..

i vote coachella for the simple fact of portishead......sure radiohead is playing lolla but they are touring the usa. is portishead? not that i have seen. Lolla and pembeeton would be a close second.

Primavera - No contest. (Unless you are obsessed with Radiohead/Rage). 2 x Portishead (1 Acoustic) makes my mouth water.

You forgot T in the Park and Benicassim. And Sasquatch. And lets wait for Virgin Festival to announce the rest of their lineup.

Then we can argue amongst ourselves.

T In The Park is the best for Europe.... but......... for North America? Prob Coachella with the overall artists... Lollapalooza for the headliners.

I assumed this poll was just about north american festivals?

This poll definate left out Sasquatch. I would choose Coachella over Sasquatch, but still, it should be considered a contender. Also, V-Fest Baltimore, Vancouver and Calgary all have yet to be anouced. Don't forget abouty ACL too. Not to mention Vegoose and Voodoo. And of course, there is always Bumbershoot. There are lots more festivals which have yet to be anounced.

The T in the Park main stage lineup is beyond shite. Shed Seven, for fucks sake. It's a whole 3 days of mediocre bollocks.

lolla's lineup is better . . . on paper.
but it still just a collection of coachellas past.

if you go to both 'chella and lolla, you'd have the best selection of bands at any other fest in the US this year. Go to both! :D


Oh...and Lolla wins...but I am VERY stoked for Portishead!

Lolla's lineup is the strongest, easily.
Coachella is always the best weekend, but Lolla definitely has the best lineup.

I think there is now no doubt Coachella is #1. I bet everyone who voted Lolla wants to take back thier votes.

Lolla is a good line up indeed.

But when placed next to Coachella's, it is practically inferior.

See you in Palm Springs :)

as of now because of PRINCE, Coachella is once again number 1, but LOLLA is still up there. I bow down to you GV.

I voted other, because the European Fests once again are kicking ass and taking names. Not a good summer to be broke.

That they are, but I think Coachella can now stand up to them.

Thanks to the Purple one, this has become a no-brainer.

I actually disagree. I voted Lolla and I still think it has a better lineup. It still has the best 3 headliners of any U.S. fest. Plus, there's a lot of great rock music, which some of us still prefer to electronic stuff. And I've never gotten to see Radiohead, my favorite band. I am much more excited for Lolla's lineup, but Coachella has made it a toss-up. Of course, it took millions of dollars to add Prince, Aphex, Goldfrapp to boost ticket sales and Lolla doesn't need to do that, but I guess a lineup is a lineup.

If it wasn't for the comedy, Sigur Ros, Ben Folds, and Ladytron, Bonnaroo would be useless, since Coachella has almost everything they have, and more!

Plus, Coachella has had all four of those before. Go-chella!

I originally thought Lollapalooza, but I changed my mind.

After hearing about Prince and Foo Fighters being added to Coachella.

Coachella is totally #1 again.

Sasquatch should definitely be on there. Coachella is still #1 but I think sasquatch is #2

V Fest Toronto. Sasquatch, V Fest Baltimore, Pemberton, Pitchfork, V Fest Calgary...

Why doesn't this poll have more options????

Lolla is a close second but Coachella is just going to be mind blowing. Portishead and Kraftwerk and going to kick so much ass. At first i thought Prince was pretty lame but after listening to the superbowl halftime show i know he is going to put up a show.

I would have voted for Lollapalooza, but they have little to no electronica.. so I voted for Coachella.
