    Are these passes the kind that sell out in minutes? Or will I have a few hours to get one? I think I'm going to go!

    also- i was delighted with the plethora of cabs and public transportation options.

    Honestly... we took the bus twice for Optical shows (Nordstrom Music Hall) and walked to and from most of the sets. Oh and then there was the Dinky show and that frisky ride home at 6am. Wooz, that chick is gonna visit me in Colorado this summer. major lulzer

    I purchased mine in July or August last year. On that note- dB 2010 was wildly successful and they've grown exponentially since then. If everyone who attended 2010 does like me and gets 5 new friends to come, this thing will sell out far far before it did last year.

    It's settled, I'm getting 2 passes at noon. I take it they'll be $157 after fees and what not? Just going by the info from last year that's still on the site.

    Last year the regular sale passes were $157 mailed to your doorstep. But they've since changed their ticketing partner and are clearly expanding the festival. I guess we find out how that effects the price in 20 min. I'll bet they're in the $110-120 range.

    Got the 5 and 7 mixed up...

    Cool. It seems most of the showcases are 16&18+ this year according to some Facebook post I saw earlier.

    I'm really curious as to who they have planned to fill up those venues.

    Electronic acts to play each venue off the top of my head...

    Paramout: Deadmau5 (recetly w/ full rig), Bassnectar (recently), Shpongle

    Showbox Market: Moby, Hot Chip, Deadmau5, DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist, Bonobo, Rusko, Chase & Status, Beats Antique, Ghostland Observatory, Above & Beyond, Crystal Castles

    The reason I asked was because I was trying to think of what kind of act or acts would fill those venues but also fits with the db vibe. I'm anxious to find out.

    Maybe Leftfield?????

    Acts like Leftfield and Aphex Twin would fit the innovative/progressive vibe but I just can't bring myself to believe they're possibilities. Modeseletor/Flylo/Carl Criag to Leftfield is a massive leap. I think the bigger venues will garner more slightly bigger names but ultimately it's the promoters taking a gamble on electronic music's growing popularity. But these are all mildly educated guesses at best.

    Looks like we're exchanging the email attachment w/ barcode for a wristband. Similar system to last year.

    Wooz and I were discussing that. I mean the Plastikman concept is perfect for dB.

    And then a Minus showcase... Oh me oh my.

    Nice. Going to be tons of fun.

    Re: Hawtin & Co. If we pull anyone from Minus, Cocoon, Bpitch Control, Kompakt, etc. I'll be happy. A label showcase would be a dream.

    it's what's best... gives you more flexibility and you're not pulling out your spending money left and right. Get the pass now and don't think about a thing until then

    In a conversation on their Facebook page dB said the final tier pass is going to be $200 in August. Food for thought.

    Wow. The final tier pass was $157 last year right?

    They've gotta have SOMETHING big planned...
