    Zack, last year they added a biergarten to the festival (in addition to the normal stands where you can buy crap beer). They had a few Michigan breweries there, Great Lakes (from Cleveland), I think other than that it was just standard imports. I forgot to go in... my brother and I will definitely be hitting that up this year.

    And yea, what Patrick said, you don't have time to go to breweries. And you will probably want to do a beer run on the way from the airport (or at least, outside of the immediate area of your hotel), as you are not going to find anything you want to drink nearby. My red bull - 4loko - rum cocktail was born of necessity. The only place near the corktown is a liquor store that was sold out of juice mixers that day...

    I totally agree.So if I can Ill try to make out to Merchants fine Wine(16 minute drive) to get some brews which is suppose to be the best in the area for a beer store or just buy whatever is good and local brews I can get as I did at ATP.I totally understand this is suppose to be more of an event to just have fun with our friends and enjoy the music.I just want to try local brews and if there is the typical what I think will be founders and bells Ill be ecstatic about that in general as well for great lakes.

    Merchant's in Grosse Pointe Woods really isn't too far, but they're going to be closed by the time you guys get in on Friday, aren't they? Seems like a lot of effort for Saturday morning before the fest.

    Keep in mind the grocery stores can sell beer/liquor there, they just won't have as much selection as a specialty store. I was able to find my Woodchuck in most of the grocery stores at least

    Wish I could go to this just for the Echospace afterparty. Silent World is one of the best pieces of music I've heard in recent years.

    Hey guys for good beers go to Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe in the midtown area. It's an upscale grocer right on Woodward about 1 mile from the fest grounds. http://www.yeoldebutchershoppedetroit.com/

    I'll reply back with a bar list near the fest when I get home tonight.

    OK by far the best place to get great beers is Foran's Grand Trunk. Here is their Jolly Pumpkin menu: http://www.grandtrunkpub.com/beer-me...el-aged-beers/

    Check out their other beer menus here: http://www.grandtrunkpub.com/beer-menu/

    They are about 2 blocks from the fest right up woodward and usually have DJ's throughout the weekend. HIGHLY recommended for any beer fan. PLUS you can buy beer to go!

    I was going to put a list together but most bars have a decent enough beer selection nowadays anyways. It's become the cool thing to have micro brews, especially Michigan Microbrews, available at most bars.

    Cara, I think the mexican stuff was from Honey Bee.

    adamjab -- awesome! Thanks! I think most of us will be looking for someplace convenient to buy beer to take back to our rooms rather than hitting up bars though. (Just guessing based on the hours of day that are unused after considering the festival and after parties. )

    Mexican stuff was indeed from Honey Bee which isn't too far from Corktown Inn (2-3 minute drive). In 2011 I went Sunday and Monday before I went into the festival and that was my meal for the day.

    "This Wednesday is a BIG day. At 12pm EST, the following will happen:

    - We will drop the FULL schedule for the festival.

    - 300 VIP tickets will be made available. All you VIP veterans will be glad to know we are adding another bathroom trailer. We will also have viewing platforms for VIP on the Electric Forest, Red Bull Music Academy and Beatport stages.

    - Fourth wave ticket pricing will go into effect."

    not exactly from what I was told...they said I'd have to buy a VIP pass, then they could refund me for my original GA pass I guess, so a little more complicated but still doable, has to be soon though before they ship your GA pass

    ^ It's not that complicated, and they've made good on immediately refunding my friends who've done it past. It's worth doing.

    New Brendon Moeller podcast out on LWE: http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com/po.../#.UYAhBrU3srZ

    It sounds like there’s a shift in your music — not so much away from the dub influences, but more towards harder techno. Do you think that’s true? If so is this a conscious move?

    I think it is just the result of me listening to and being inspired by the genre. My first official DJ gig was in 1987 in an industrial/punk nightclub in Johannesburg. I loved this gig to death and was sad to see it come to an end when somebody jumped up into the booth and threatened to stab me for not playing a particular Conflict song. I’m enjoying the resurgence of harder industrial sounds happening in techno. Hopefully live techno is the future of techno!
    Ugh that underground stage is going to get HEAVY

    Uhm. YES, I'm loving that influence in techno

    Though I think it's official 'over' now since RA had a headline back in January about the new sound of industrial techno... :P

    I've gone to the dark side and have been listening to a lot of bass-music-type stuff of which I can't even pinpoint the right genre.
