    Well Coachella is an established festival. Not quite the same thing.

    the "Kanrocksas" name explanation is hilariously awful.

    Yep. This was part of the reason why the Flaming Lips' 2004 Coachella set was like four songs long. Damn Beck, havin' babies....

    Paul T did a press conference in Mexico for the 2008 line up. And that was a million times better.

    I mean if you want to get 100k people to this thing, dont show me a fucking powerpoint and an email of the kansas town hall meeting notes. Hire a PR firm and promote this shit. They need to have a coming out party that would make Clay Aiken jealous.

    Yeah, no sale.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    This definitely did not meet my hopes, but at the very least I'm happy there's a major festival coming to KC.

    I haven't liked Eminem much since High School, but someone as high profile as him could establish Kanrocksas in the area to be improved upon in years to come.

    No, they explained how it was gonna be set up. Stages on the infield and whatnot. I am sure youll be able to go into the grandstand. You know how big the racing oval is at a normal speedway, right?

    yeah, i've been to a few races. i just didn't think the infield was big enough for the 100,000 they're hoping for. and the track itself, at least at the turns, is very steep so i would think they wouldn't want people on the turns, but i suppose the straightaways would work. but wouldn't the heat on the asphalt be unbearble if they had it open?

    for a first time fest the lineup is pretty good...however. if they wanna compete with Lolla, they need to scale back and aim for 40-50k.

    Its probably the only place in KC that has the infrastructure they need to pull this off, thus the lofty projection. I do predict camping will be a total mess since it is ''free''. And after checking the camping FAQ, opening the campgrounds on Friday morning is just opening yourself up to problems.

    I would assume the 100,000 talk is simply marketing. In reality, it will be 50,000 per day, and which gives you that 100,000 for the weekend figure.

    Wait a few week and head across the state to St. Louis and see TV on the Radio/Deerhunter/!!!/The Roots/The Hold Steady/Cat Power/Surfer Blood/Das Racist and more for $64

    It's in a nice park, too, not a speedway.

    So - anyone checking this out? I wasn't planning on it until I won tickets yesterday. Anything I should be checking out outside of Flaming Lips / Black Angels / A Perfect Circle?
