    Default Who has the greatest number of acts they want to see?

    So I took all 3 days, winnowed out the acts that I either dont want to see or dont have enough info to judge and Im left with...

    89 acts.

    Eighty NINE

    A number that will only grow as I get better acquainted with some of them and of course once the inevitable additions roll in.

    Last year I had like 100-something.

    Anyone beat my number?

    Pro-Tip: Throw your list into an HTML editor that numbers the lines automatically to keep from having to count them yourself.

    I'm around thirty,
    Which means fifty by April.
    Conflicts will abound.

    If you really want
    To see eighty-nine plus bands,
    You'll be unhappy.

    I have around 50. I'm gonna have conflict disappointment for sure. Also because there are certain bands that get "Conflict Override" where I cut out acts in order to good spot near the front.

    24...eight per day so far.

    After closer observation, I must sadly declare that the undercard is disappointing. Of those undercard acts I want to see (so far), most I either like or am curious about, as opposed to love.

    Clearly, I am not NEARLY as indie as any of you. If only I was more hip...

    My number is about 15 acts per day. Obviously, set times will prevent me from seeing everyone I want to see. I have 2 or 3 "must see regardless of conflicts" acts each day; the rest will be determined by stages/set times.
    My name is Becca. Hi.

    Facebook, yo.

    I have a system of grading that goes:

    Must See - Obviously must do anything to see them
    Try To See - Try my best, or maybe I've already seen them and would watch something else if it conflicts
    Maybe - Could do with or without
    Buzz Band - They're apparently all the rage so if nothing better is on I'll see what the hype is about
    Who Gives a Shit? - Self-explanatory

    I've only researched Friday so far, but I have 3 "must sees" and 9 "try to see" acts. So 12 acts I'll make an effort to get to for Friday, conflicts permitting.

    Here is the breakdown for me by day (so far):
    Friday = 16 (9 must-see acts)
    Saturday = 10 (3 must-see acts)
    Sunday = 7 (5 must-see acts)

    It reminds me a lot of 2007.

    Default Add em up. Who has the most acts they wanna see?

    Add em up and see who has the most?

    I started a thread like this a while back, but that was before we had the basically full lineup, so lets start clean.

    Dont list them, dont rank them. Just count them.

    Use one metric and one alone: do you have a postive desire, barring conflicts, to see the act? This is binary. Yes or No.

    Add up your Yes's.




    Right now Im at an even 90.
