    People learn your history, that's not the "classic" look. The 2008 poster as it is now, is MUCH MORE related to the original "classic" poster of 1999, not the one you posted.

    It'd be interesting to know why they decided to change it to a "much more classic 1999 related look" this year, and not other past years.

    I wonder if they will sell the 2 versions of the poster at the festival.

    I'm sure it's to sell 3-day passes. 3-day passes means camping passes sell, and reduces traffic/congestion. If you have the lineup split by day, people will know which day they want to see, and they'll either not buy or they'll scalp the other two days.

    If you have all three days mashed together, people see it strictly in the context of a three-day fest, and 3-day passes sell better.

    I'd bet that's the logic, anyway.

    It hurts my eyes a little to look at the poster that's up on the website. Day-by-day is so much easier to see who is playing.

    However, I completely agree with braundiggity, why else would they mush the line up into one giant poster?

    I'll pay $20 for a poster that has Jack Johnson's name tastefully removed.

    If you go to event info and click line up it shows line up by day...Doesnt matter how the poster looks, people dont have a choice but to get the three day passes since single days are sold out anyway. Unless they want to get them on ebay.

    That 1999 poster... i hadn't looked in a while. Basically twice the quality we have this year

    Sorry, I digress, but is music dying? Coachella has probably the BEST lineup this year of any festival, and it still fucking blows.

    Putting a big, red X through his name with a Sharpie would be tastful and classy enough for me.

    I hope you mean the best lineup of any AMERICAN festival, because the ones in Europe are fucking amazing and destroy the US ones.

    they only did it cuz this years sucks bad. its should have been a 2 day event and now they cant sell any tickets. they're just mashing it all up so people cant tell what day they want to go. fucking golden voice fucked up. they watered down a good festival.

    I definitely prefer the old poster set-up. It made it easier to see additions. Now it just looks all clumped up.

    I'm not getting my hopes up.

    and do you really buy posters at the festival? I always order them online later. shipping charges > carrying a poster around.

    Not if you buy the poster at the end of the night and just bring it out with you.
