    Default Create A Festival Conflict Contest, Winter 2007/2008

    The purpose of this contest is to create a festival that will have not only the most conflicts, but also the most painful conflicts. I have not really planned out the rules but I will flesh this out.

    Conflicts are an important part of the festival experience, and I think it is important we celebrate them now, before they are very, very real come April.

    Mine was a painful reality last year. Soulwax was a great call and my second favorite set of the weekend, but Rod Y Gab were painful to miss.

    EDIT: Or were they ALL already done, and I missed your point. In which case, you forgot Muse VS UNKLE.

    Until the rules are fleshed out...how about some very real ones from the past few years. Not the personal ones...the ones where any idiot could look at it and say "Uhhh...don't they have the exact same fanbase for the most part?"

    A few off the top of my head...

    Tilly & The Wall vs Of Montreal: Coachella 07... I picked Tilly because I wasn't that familiar with Of Montreal at the time, but now that I know more, I would assume they attract a similar fan. Having Silversun Pickups at the same time was just adding insult to injury.

    Public Enemy vs Cypress Hill: Vegoose 07- Yeah, at a hip-hop festival, that's counterprogramming. At a rock festival where you are the only 2 hip-hop acts playing that day, it's just plain stupid.

    I'm going to have every band play in a different city at the same time, and then I'm going to instigate a travel industry strike.

    Public Enemy vs Cypress Hill: Vegoose 07- Yeah, at a hip-hop festival, that's counterprogramming. At a rock festival where you are the only 2 hip-hop acts playing that day, it's just plain stupid.
    I really wanted to see Of Montreal, so I had to see them, but I merely wanted to check out Tilly and the Wall out of curiousity. Now I wish I had seen Tilly & The Wall instead because apparently Jarvis Cocker was in the tent and kept letting people take pictures with him.

    New Order vs. The Dresden Dolls was fucking awful. Picking the Dolls was a strange choice because I had only recently gotten into their music, while I had known New Order since childhood, but I was quite obsessed with that album. And then it turns out that New Order doesn't come to LA later in the year like I thought they would (December for the Dresden Dolls, but I was out of town, and that's dumb playing during Christmas break when so many the college kids would be elsewhere), so I'll obviously never see them. But I heard their performance sucked ass, while the Dresden Dolls owned all. Anyways, their music is quite different, but both had more of a connection to the headliner than the other bands on the lineup (New Order influenced NIN as Joy Division, Dresden Dolls were personally chosen to be the opening act).

    I still can't believe Arcade Fire and Gang of Four conflicted. Wow.

    I think just throwing out conflicts is more organized than whatever format I'll come up with, so feel free to keep doing that.

    How about Alter Bridge vs The Heads vs Heaven & Hell vs Audioslave vs Zwan vs Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe vs Slick Idiot vs Velvet Revolver vs The Gary Cherrone version of Van Helen

    Sorry, that was silly

    Ransom 1 vs Mogwai and Vincent Gallo collaboration.

    Painful on many levels.
