Let's say this: 12 months from what? Lineup annoucement? Weekend 1? 2? Due date for pool submissions?
Just pick a date. Reunited after 1/1/11 or 6/30/11 or something like that.
If there's Coachella to be had, I'm gonna have it
DAMN YOU PEOPLE STOP MAKING MORE WORK FOR ME
I like the HCB idea. Anyone that's played a reunion show since 04.18.2011. Trying to not exclude bands like Pulp who announced they were reuniting but didn't play any shows for several months.
Of course, it's also considered a reunion if there's no announcement and there's just a surprise on the poster. Been known to happen.
I think it should only be considered a reunion if the act's first show is at Coachella. Otherwise, where is the skill (or luck) in predicting it? It's just a prediction of an act that happened to get back together in the last year. That's a pretty arbitrary way to get a bonus point.
But this isn't my pool, so it doesn't matter.
Yeah, but there's no way to predict that. Say the reunion is announced on the poster, and then they do a bunch of shows in London or some shit prior to the festival.
What if your reunion act is the headliner? Do you get 2 points for being a headliner and 1 point for being the reunion?
Pitchfork Festival: 7/19 @ Union Park
Mountain Oasis Festival: 10/25-27
How about a bonus point or two for naming the band who gets invited back for 2nd consecutive year?
It takes a fast car, lady,
To lead a double life.
Yeah according to that article, the reunion act will not be a festival focus, so I doubt they are a headlining act. Just do your best. When the lineup comes out, I'm sure we will all be able to tell who the reunion act is.
Ok, I sort of disagree that Pulp isn't a reunion. They don't seem to have ever announced their breakup, but they took a nine year hiatus, and announced their reunion. Jarvis even called it a reunion. Thoughts?
Reunion: An instance of two or more people coming together again after a period of separation.
It's just too convoluted to come up with rules around it. Like I say, I think we'll all know who the "reunion" act that Paul was talking about is when we see the poster. I'll give all "reunion" submissions a fair shake.
Let's just say this. If there is a question as to whether or not a band qualifies as a reunion, email me and I'll confer with my advisors.
I will be submitting my list this week or the next at the latest
Finally posting on the board for the soul purpose of winning this bitch! Can't wait to get some even more cooler stuff or whatever it is we're competing over.
