Thread: What's With ALL THE CANCELLATIONS This Year?????

    Default What's With ALL THE CANCELLATIONS This Year?????

    Is it just me, or does Coachella 2008 hold the record for the most cancellations of artists at any Coachella Festival? So far (see another thread), there's been seven. I was really disappointed in this year's line-up to begin with, but I bought my 3-day pass pre-sale. Then Madness backed out. Bummer. Every single act that has cancelled so far was on my personal "must see" list--all 7! Now I'm hearing rumors Rilo Kiley and Goldfrapp are maybe's. Jeez. Is it too late to sell my 3 day pass and buy my Sasquatch tix? It seems Sasquatch has the best of the Coachella 2008 acts, plus Sasquach got R.E.M. this year. All we got was Jack Johnson, 1/4 of Pink Floyd, and one hit wonder Portished.

    Thank you for worrying about that. Now I don't have to.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    It does seem like alot more cancellations than usual and we still have a month but maybe it just seems that way. Anyone know the typical number of cancellations ? I usually only remember stuff like Cocteau Twins cancelling. Regarding the OP, Portishead really only had 2 albums + a live one in the past, but they are amazing.

    To tell you the truth, none of the cancellations except for Madness have bothered me that much (Knock on wood).

    where in the world did you hear that rilo kiley or goldfrapp are cancelling?? other than that, not one word you wrote hasn't been said multiple times in other threads... Sasquatch? yawn...

    but, i'll give you that Portishead is a one-hit wonder, but that means shit to me... how long has it been since radio or mtv mattered with music that isn't shit?

    If you say that "all we got was Jack Johnson, 1/4 of Pink Floyd, and one hit wonder Portishead" I would question how much you know about music.

    ya, 2008 has had its problems with cancellations, which sucks...but they also did add Aphex Twin, and are the only american festival with The Verve back together, and Portishead's only US date... and one of Kraftwerk's few.... there really isnt too much to complain about, other than JJ and the cancellations. This lineup is insane compaired to some of Sasquatch... Sasquatch is awesome for some of the acts it has, but it doesnt have the variety that Coachella offers every year and all that...
