    I bought an early bird pass, this has become my go-to festival (4th year attending). It's relatively cheap, never feels too crowded, and the lineup is always excellent (even if I don't care for the headliners).

    I'm hoping Beck is one of the headliners this year.
    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.

    You dont really have to be that close. Ive been staying up in Lakeview ( where wrigley field is ) everytime I go to the fest. Either the bus which is maybe 45 mins ride or the train which is about the same will get you there with no issues. You dont need total proxmity with how public transportation is in the city. And the fest ends at 10pm, its not like youre going to be leaving at 1 am and struggle to find a way to get back where youre staying.

    The times I did this fest I stayed at the Hostelling International hostel in the loop. It's very well-maintained and lots of festival attendees stay there as well. If you're okay with hostels I'd highly recommend it.

    Do they sell VIP tickets? And if so, what do they include?

    VIP is not sold. They auctioned off a pair last year, so if you really felt the need to drop a lot of money for a good cause, by all means. VIP includes only a few things, so theres no reason to even really get it. Being able to watch a performance onstage from a ''viewing area'' with sub par sightlines, and then the VIP area which has some different food and alcohol, and no bathroom lines. Is that what you want to do the whole time?

    In the past they've done stuff on Facebook where they ask a question about the fest/an artist and whoever they pick as the best reply gets VIP tickets.

    I definitely don't need VIP, just wondering if there was one and what it included, it does sound like a waste.

    Slowdive that exclusive that was putting primavera over the top . Way more exciting than outkast . I bet they only play 100 shows in the next year.

    He's not playing in a damp basement in Brooklyn 15 years ago, so it's really not worth your time to see Beck these days.

    You never fail to act like a jackass. I understand there will be adds, but I still think its interesting that they were put on the initial second line and above the acts that are listed below them. I just hope that both of their new albums will justify their bumps in stature.

    Great start so far. Slowdive is a surprise. I hope Death Grips don't cancel.
