    Default USA MUSIC FESTIVALS BEST OF 2009

    USA MUSIC FESTIVALS BEST OF 2009
    Rather than make this a poll I figured we can just run a tally and people can vote and give their opinion as well. One vote for each category. One fest for each category. I realize this will be biased in some regard towards Coachella and that’s fine, I would really like to see everyone’s opinion in each of the categories though. For fun you can add a misc. category with the same fests as options too. So for instance. Your response should look like this, just an example:

    Best Overall Fest
    Coachella
    I really like the overall experience at Coachella etc.

    Best Lineup
    Bonnaroo
    The lineup at Bonnaroo is exceptional each and every etc.

    And so on. Then you can add one category of your own
    Best Food at a music fest:
    Bonnaroo
    The variety available etc.

    Try to limit whatever misc. category you want to add to just ONE so we can keep this sort of neat, organized and easy to read.

    1)BEST OVERALL MUSIC FESTIVAL

    COACHELLA
    SASQUATCH
    BONNAROO
    LOLLAPALOOZA


    2)BEST LINEUP AT A MUSIC FESTIVAL

    Yes, given the title, that was blatantly obvious.

    Alright menik. You win with the annoying oversize picture. I can admit a bad idea. Feel free to delete the thread.

    fuck them... it was a good idea...

    very simple:

    best destination festivals: coachella and bonnaroo

    best city festival: thats up for debate.... IMO.. Lolla is 1 and number 2 could be APW, OSL, etc... u can get a good debate on that one.. destination fests are not even close...

    BEST HEADLINERS:
    This is really too close to call. I would have to go with Lollapalooza because of personal taste. (Depeche Mode, Tool, KOL VS Paul Mc, The Cure)

    BEST UNDERCARD:
    Coachella

    BEST ELECTRONIC ACTS:
    Coachella
