    Re: Lollapalooza 2014

    They are nearly a lock with that announcement. They are a really easy match being a 90's band, and you know a Chicago festival will get them. Lolla has the most cash out of the pack, so I'm expecting...

    Re: Lollapalooza 2014

    I don't disagree. RHCP was a pretty shitty headliner though, and they played Lolla the year before. And you said it, Lou wasn't there. But Lolla got shit day of the decade Saturday. I didnt even...

    JT isn't necessarily a lock at this point. By August, he will have played Chicago several times over the year before. I wouldn't even say Outkast is a lock either. Lots of options is all we've got a...

    Wow, Lolla hate snobbery. As someone who's been to Lolla, Coachella, Roo, ACL and a half dozen others, I don't get it. The weather last year was the best festival weather I've ever experienced, and...

    At this point I feel much better about skipping Coachella this year. There is an almost 100% guarantee Outkast will be at Lolla, Summerfest, or both.

  15. Re: Saturday is the Single Worst Day in Coachella History

    Re: Your Opinions on the 2014 Lineup

    Yeah, I think Saturday is the strongest pretty easily. A shitload of good stuff. The undercard of Sunday is severely lacking, and Friday is pretty balanced.

    I think I agree. Way too many radio friendly names with shallow catalogs and weak music.

    It's the one thing I find unfortunate about Coachella. There are a lot of impolite, entitled, obnoxious kids. Probably the youngest demographic of the major festivals. Roo has a nice vibe. Lolla...
