    Unhappy How many people know %80 of the bands playing?

    I have never heard most of the bands playing, meaning I have to go out and buy their stuff to listen to it, so when I see them, I can enjoy their music. Anyone have the same problem?
    Last year was great, I knew most of all the stuff.

    Very familiar with about 10%
    Have heard of but music is mostly unfamiliar: about 40%
    Totally unfamiliar with about 50%

    That 90% of unfamiliarity will = about 40-50% when Coachella actually arrives. That's what the 3 months are for.

    Definitely don;t know 80%, but I've heard quite a bit of the lineup in at least a passing listen. That said, who would want to go to a festival where they knew 80% of the lineup? I mean, the lineup could use a little tweaking in my opinion, but the fact remains that there are plenty of artists I want to see on each day. I think everyone will start getting psyched up when the little band capsules start going up and new "must-see" bands emerge for everyone. I'm not as familiar with as many of the hip-hop and electronica acts this year, but I really have been kinda veering away from both of those genres lately anyway.

    yea, I always go to Austin City Limits from toronto, but to go all the way to LAX for this lineup... Its a tough call.

    I'd say I have listened to or own music from about 40% of the artists. There are a bunch that I have heard of but have never listened to their music.

    i've heard of 40% of the lineup and heard 30%-35%. i actually like that. instead of preconceived notions about bands i can give them all a fair listen now.

    I don't think I ever come close to knowing even 40% of all the artists.

    I usually know around 20%. This year, maybe 25%. I do a lot of studying as we lead up to the event.

    I'm somewhat familiar with maybe 2/3rds of the lineup, thanks to myspacing and youtubing, and am interested in maybe 1/5th of it. And of the remaining unknowns, even if the same percentage ends up appealing to me, it still won't add up to previous years.

    I know 62% of the bands. I'm mildly embarrassed that I just took the time to go through and count.

    By April, my goal is to know 100%.

    I know/listen to about 65% (on a fairly regular basis) and have heard of (or listened to a song or two) from approximately, another 20%.
