    Default artist brief descriptions, bio, and "recommended if" for entire lineup?

    has anyone put together anything that list all artists and a few words about each one on a single page? might contain things like genre, 'sounds like', 'recommended if', record label, hometown, bio, etc.

    just a small paragraph for each artist on one page.

    "has anyone put together anything" ... "on a single page"

    What do you mean? I've been working on my "list" since the lineup was announced, and AllMusic has been super helpful for some of those that I wasn't familiar with.

    Spend some time and do some research. You've only got one day left to bone up!

    i'm wondering if someone has already done this and put it up for others to use.

    that is not what i'm asking for. i know i can go through every artist link and do it myself & do my own research.... and i'm not asking for 'one of' recommendations. (thanks for the tip spinecraft) i just know that some people put a lot of time and effort into planning for this weekend and would imagine that someone already has a single page outline with artist bios already finished. and if so, might've already shared it or would be willing to share it.

    all the artists have links to media content (youtube vids / band sites) you should spend some time and find your likes/dislikes your OWN taste

    DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH YOU LAZY ASS


    SleighBells is kinda cool

    i didn't ask anyone to do it or do it for me but merely if someone already has done it and would share it. i have my own taste but thanks for the brilliant suggestion.

    Well, I think the conclusion is that people haven't done it. If they have, they're not sharing it. Instead of waiting for someone to be kind and give you all the answers, just find out what you can. End ridiculous bickering. End thread.
