So we want a sub forum each for Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch, ACL, Outside Lands, and misc? Or just one subforum entitled Festivals where all talk of Roo, Lolla etc go into?

I agree with Soul, and also the people that said yes. Make the music forum slightly better organized...

tessalasset
05-02-2009, 10:38 AM
yeah menik. just one "Festivals" or "Other Festivals" subforum where all the festivals that are not Coachella go. it's easier to keep up on them that way and it's easier to keep track of non-festival music news in this forum.


calmer... of COURSE i'm jealous. i'm mainly jealous of the people who live in western europe cause it's relatively easy for them to hop between different fests, as opposed to the states.
