    I'm hoping the lineup has more weight than the poster art. Some of you have killer skills. My photoshop skills are for naught. Plus, people don't go to festivals because of how the poster looks.

    we try to keep things simple, you guys try to complicate them. wont do this contest anymore if its simplicity is too much for you guys to handle. would you prefer we just take it down and forget the whole thing? or will you just shut up and post your damn posters already. sheesh.

    Also, you should know there's a bunch of anal retentive freak nerdbots on here that are going to freak out, overcomplicate things, and whine.

    ... So Dani, how about you hand out some tickets to those of us most against overcomplicating things like me and then shut the contest down? Sound good?

    It's all good. I was kind of looking forward to the mad dash when there was like one year unnanounced and everyone would be scrambling and there would be like 100 posters. haha. But this is cool, I've got lots of really sharp poster concepts to unveil by the end of the month. Best of luck to all, well, best of luck as long is it doesnt top my luck. haha.

    I already bought my ticket anyways and I don't really care if I get VIP or not. I'm travelling with others who won't be vip so I don't even know how much I'd use it.

    That said I'd still really like to win just to say I won and to have the VIP option.

    i think that should count for something. i worked hard on making my lineups feasible and appropriate, and got to work FAST because initially the winners were going to be declared as the posters were being made. changing the ruling on winners kinda fucked the people who were trying to get theirs out in a quick manner.



    edit - i have had fun learning photoshop though, so i suppose if i dont win, thats gratifying too. but i was like "gotta get these posters out quick! winners soon.... aaaaaand that worked against me, i feel.

    I thought the winners were supposed to be announced by the end of Feb and at random times. Not as they were posted. I put mine up quick and early so that it would be ready to be judged and maybe being first would get bonus points. If not I also had more time to improve mine.

    hahaha chut up j/k ... you all just assume that they will pick a winner anytime/just like what they did for 1977 so you made some posters/sent your entries in a hurry or whatever (menik's poster/entry is brilliant & deserving IMO ... however, they should let others make some 1977 posters for an alternate winner since menikmati/our good friend is a moderator of this board and so we could see others thoughts about it ... erik should keep/get his much deserved prize)

    from the few that i've seen, the poster designs are great (but ...). however, overall most entries i've seen lack originality/uninventive/with unbelievable/unrealistic billing & lineup issues/lineups meh (NOW GO FIX THEM! heh heh) ... if I think I cannot make better posters than what have been submitted so far am not going to submit mine

    * one or two are really great ... I won't even try making posters for those years
    Well Arman it was originally stated in the first post that "winners will be selected as we go along", so I can understand the confusion/frustation I guess.

    This is a really cool thing for GV to do - I mean they're offering nearly 30 tickets for free here. And seeing as it seems like GV is pretty much playing by the contest by ear, more power to them. Not everything will work out perfect the first time around.

    Also, if I recall correctly, the original rules stated that you could use reunion acts, however, it appears that has changed. Will posters that had reunions be held accountable?

    What about that changed? Dani's ruling on it was if they're alive they can play, nobody gives a fuck if they were broken up or on hiatus that year.


    This is a really cool thing for GV to do... if I win. If I don't win, it was a colossal waste of my time and my sweet Simon Cowell-esque critical abilities which I will never forgive.

    whoever said there couldnt be reunions?
    i think alot of the board members are jus criticizing unlikely reuinons, like bands getting back together after a year or so..

    from 1st page:

    You can only use bands who actually existed by the year of your poster.
    I could've sworn that was added a few days after this had begun. But I may be wrong, though. And when I later read it, it sounded like it was ruling out reunions.

    it was probably added later and not initially because you'd think that would be assumed. why the fuck would i add the beastie boys to a 1972 poster?

    Pretty sure Dani would call this overcomplicating on your part. She discussed it back on page three or something. A band existing doesn't mean a band not on hiatus. It means the band has to have been formed by then and the people have to be alive or whatever.

    I'm pretty sure its just overcomplication on my part. She did say this:

    So it all makes sense now. Just wanted to make sure.

    I had a totally wrong reunion on mine and I was called on it. I'm sure it's cool that people have a reunion on their poster. You would think it would be encouraged.

    I also love that Mr Sparkle avatar. It should be one of the posters and just throw a date on it.

    Is anyone else surprised that we haven't seen any pro-marijuana posters yet?

    I expected a giant pot leaf with a lineup on like page 4.
