This one is quite difficult. Need a while to think.

The Libertines are an actual reunion act, too, split in 2004.

...and The Sundays.

3 for the price of one.

Looks like Crop Circle falls victim to the questionable billing dilemma. That and a weak undercard. Not worth a trip to England.

Also, just as an FYI, the Libertines were declared fair game and were not considered a reunion.

Make it 4. Mazzy Star, as well.

The lack of unique electronic acts has cost Crop Circle my vote. I have seen Orbital and Chemical Bros on MANY other posters. Vineyard has 808 state (!!!!) AND Ellen Allien & Apparat, not to mention Fugees, who would be awesome to see live.

Edit: I just noticed Vineyard has a comedian MC at a stage each day. That's kinda cool.

Stevie Wonder and Al Green co-headlining is very win. As are the presumed main stage MC's. Get some lulz on between acts? Is nice.

strokes above the stripes? no. still gets my vote, though.

That's the billing that I was talking about, although having the Strokes at all is bad enough.

Vineyard-only because they put Stevie Wonder in the right spot.

Crop Circle also has ETBTG, another reunion act.

Also, anyone who questions Crop Circle's billing, remember, it is in England. UK festivals have a history of putting acts like Klaxons, Arctic Monkeys, etc. all into headlining slots despite what us yanks think. Food for thought.

Everything But the Girl is fine, although the Sundays and Mazzy Star do appear to both be reunions in addition to the Stone Roses. I will speak with Erik and see what happens at this point. I don't think there is any intentional cheating, just lazy research.

The Wrens, the Stone Roses, Sun Kil Moon, Six Organs of Admittance, Circulatory System, Juana Molina and The Dodos put Crop Circle over the top for me.

Vineyard Sound is a really good festival and should it win I figure it'll start to get my vote (he says without looking at potential matchups.)

This would only hold true if the person that made it lived in England. I am pretty sure there is only one UKer in the contest, and I know what fest that is. Not this one.

I dunno. I mean, if I had chosen a UK location for my festival and booked acts like the aforementioned alongside Keane or Bloc Party or what not, I'm pretty sure I would have taken the precedent of British booking into account and billed them higher than they'd be billed here in the US.

I think there was an Icelandic festival last year that had Sigur Ros headlining and I want to say it got a lot of slack for the fact, but I think it makes sense... To each their own.

Stone Roses and The Sundays are both reunions, but that would be awesome despite the rule breaking.

Vineyard has Yesayer. Vineyard is also much more diverse, and doesnt have The Strokes billed above The White Stripes. Vineyard gets my vote.

How are the Libertines fair game? They are most deinately a reunion.

Damn this one is close. I voted for Vineyard Sound because their Saturday looks incredible and I hate the font for Crop Circle's poster.

The Strokes as a headliner over the Stripes?! I dont think so...

Plus vineyard is nicely diversified

vineyard is so formulaic
just another predictable lineup

No Bowie. No Portishead.


In fact it has quite a good number of acts I haven't seen on any other poster, or on very few, like 3 or less. This goes for Crop Circle as well. I'm not seeing what you are seeing.

I don't want to vote for Crop Circle but the smaller acts are more my taste than vineyard.

Congrats to Vineyard Sound for it's victory...I really didn't think you were gonna win this round to be honest, but you move onto the sweet 16...I need set times soon.

Thanks to Crop Circle for participating...obviously there were some problems with reunion groups regarding your fest, so sorry about that, but I always enjoy your posters and lineups each year...0-3 though, you really haven't had much luck in this contest....better luck next time though, perhaps for you, fourth time will be the charm.
