    Thanks Brandon... I was waiting for a thread like this, I will probably skipping out on this lineup as well unless some of my plans change this year and I can somehow squeeze it in.

    I felt the same way, although I did feel a twinge seeing the London Suede, Leftfield, and Shpongle on there. Oh well.

    Lots of other things to spend my monies on this year (despite there being several acts I'd like to see), as of now I'm not inspired enough to take the trip.

    There's a good chance I'll end up in this thread.

    Yeah, not going. I planned on making last year my last, and the lineup, while decent, hasn't changed my mind. Sasquatch is closer, cheaper, and less physically demanding.

    But if Neil Young is added...?

    This is what I'm still holding out for. Where is the 90s grunge reunited supergroup? Where is the guitar shreddage legacy artist?

    They said they're selling less tickets this year. The attendance will be the same as it was in 2009.

    Not happening, how do you add more on top of 183 confirmed artists? And youll be surrounded buy clones of yourself for 4 days, not fun enough?

    if it's any consolation, the webcast was pretty decent last year. I'll be watching it again apparently.

    The webcast was awesome last year. The band selection was good and the picture quality was great with no lagging at all. Even though the lineup last year was spectacular, I can't say I'm too sad about missing Clusterfuckchella. I'm really counting on Paul T keeping his promise about lowering attendance this year. I have faith though as several people said he was visibly upset on Sunday of last year.

    Why wouldn't they announce it if they were going to do that?

    They're not lowering attendance. Maybe if this one doesn't sell out they'll reconsider.

    Maybe it's just me, but it's feeling like the end of an era.

    I know LA to Palm Springs isn't a hop, skip and a jump away, but it's not a huge commitment either...

    I just say this because I'm just starting to get to know a lot of you guys (and probably this means annoying the fuck out of most of you), and it's a bummer a lot of you won't make it.

    Remember when 08 was announced and Prince wasn't on it yet? I was equally underwhelmed (but bought tix and had a blast anyway). But this one has better 2nd/3rd tier acts, and based on the 06/08 precedent, I think we still got a big name to be added.

    But then again, maybe this is Paul T/GV/AEG's way of saying "you guys want it back down to 60k, this is what you get for 60k". I think this lineup will sell 60k worth of tix, because the fest on it's own is popular enough now.

    Regardless, I hope at least some of you re-consider, and if not, maybe I'll see ya at Lolla (or Sasquatch or the 'Roo if the lineup is killer).

    Yeah but 08 had Portishead, Kraftwerk, RW and MMJ right from the get go. Prince was just the cherry on the top.

    Did you not see the article someone posted a few months ago? He "announced" it through a direct quote in the article and apparently it was from a completely legit source. Several people (I remember TomAZ and captncrzy for sure) said they'll give it another shot because of this.

    They never, ever said they'd lower attendance. They said that "too many people" was a problem, and then specifically identified the gatecrashing as the issue to be addressed.

    I don't think they'll have difficulty getting to 75K this year given that they probably could have sold 85-90K last year. With luck, the "expanded venue" won't just apply to camping/VIP/parking etc.

    The lineup is deep, and solid overall... But it definitely lacks a wow factor. If Coachella required significant travel expenses, I'd find it hard to justify this time. I mean, the last several hours I spent in Indio consisted of Spoon->Phoenix->Pavement->Thom Yorke->Gorillaz while Orbital and Plastikman went on nearby...

    Yeah 08 was the last big hoorah the past 2 years were not bad at all. Its been pretty worth going for me every year since I started going in 05.

    They didn't have to lower attendance with a lineup like this.

    I wish I'd skipped Pavement. :/ But it was kind of hard to ask my buddies to do yet another march across the venue.
