SUCKS

Its the same production company that put on Rothbury from what I gather. Maybe they couldn't use the Rothbury name for some (legal) reason.

Its gonna be a mixed genre fest. I was kinda hoping for an all out electronic music festival. String Cheese is the only act announced so far. More on the 28th.

Isnt it just Rothbury with a new name?

Except SCI will probably headline all 3 nights.

AEG Live and Goldenvoice are no longer affiliated so I don't think they will have the same financial backing/booking power.

I really hope they can come close to recreating the magic that was the first 2 Rothburys.

Like someone else said though, it seems to be an Insomniac production so the electronic line-up should be stacked.

Why does SCI have to play 3 nights? Anyhow Bisco is still fun even though you have to endure like 7 sets of TDB. Whenever you hear them start to noodle just hang out in the campground with your friends, or head over to the empty showers and actually clean yourself up.

it's the perfect storm... Same with this Snow Ball festival here in Colorado.. Just a bunch of crap with a few nice things. But it mobilizes the 16-21 crowd. I really can't blame the people who book these fests; Pretty Lates, Bassnectar + dubstep= job security

It has Bassnectar and Pretty Lights. Thats all any lineup in CO needs to have (and thats why every single lineup in CO has them) to sell tickets. Fuck them

Edit: Didnt realize you said the same exact thing in the post above lol. And Fuck the String Cheese Incident as well

Reo Speedwagon is gonna melt our faces! Not to mention all the guests that will play with them. Really hoping Skrillex sits in with them.

ha same old shit. too bad cuz those are some of the best festival grounds in the entire country.

... get ready for a bunch of unexperienced, underaged e-tards to invade the forest

This is so bad... such a shame cause I kinda wanted to go.

Seriously, if you are a fan of electric music and djs you have seen PL and Bassnectar at least twice in the past three years. I like both of these artists, and while they are doing nothing wrong, they should both just have taken this summer off.
Tiesto? Really? They paid him way to much and not enough other people enough.

Bisco please bring the heat....

I swear you can have Bassnectar and Pretty Lights headline a concentration camp and every fucking e-tard and disphit that doesnt know anything about electronic music in Colorado wiill line up around the block to get in.

haha sooooooooooooooo much hate on the colorado folk. but yea i agree for the most part. im just glad im not a fuckin retard and actually know where my head is at with these tunes.

on the upside of things, this means i get to go to umphreys and lotus at red rocks b2b a few days before my birthday

I'm fine with Bassenctar and PL on here, they both have a perfectly fine live show. The issue is everoyne has seen Bassenctar and PL at least twice in the past 3 years. Nobody cares at this point. Pair this with Tiesto and String Cheese for 3 fucking sets, and now really nobody cares.

This seems like it was thrown together last minute by amateurs trying to make a buck off the emerging festival climate. At 200 bucks this may seem a bit expensive to "kids" who can go to Starscape and see everything they want for 69$.

If Shpongle were to throw a live set down then I think it'd be worth it, doubtful.

The name was pretty promising, then I saw the line up. This is the most random line up of leftover festival acts I've ever seen. It says more to be announced, that actually terrifies me.

K, its hippies in Michigan, they are trying to be Bonnaroo jr with some more electronic artists on it too. How is this suprising? Have you see the Rothbury line ups before?

This in theory sounds fantastic. Camp bisco did it much better last year and will hopefully do it again this year.

Being that its a month apart from DEMF and costs roughly 4 times as much I doubt very well. Then take into account that The Roo is 2 weeks before this. Kids will have already blown their wads by the time this rolls around. Then All Good & Pitchfork are 2 wks after with very solid lineups. Maybe if it was $100-$120 for the wknd but way too much $$$ as it is. Not good for this production company.
