    VIP includes free beer the whole fest? Jesus Christ. This fest sounds awesome.

    Yeah I was planning on watching her. Didn't work out though. That's cool though. I'm sure she's great.

    Seriously considering going down to Austin for this now. Wow. Anybody know how quickly this usually sells out?

    I went last year and I think it sold out a couple weeks before the fest.

    For anyone thinking about going, DO IT. This is a great festival during a great time of year in Austin. It was my third year attending and it's easily one of my favourite festivals. PIP is cheap, considering the free beer with free food, so this fest is very doable. They also give away a lot of swag. I got a sweet backpack last year that I use almost everyday. The only recommendation I have is to book accommodation early.

    I'm really considering going this year again but after the week I'm taking off next week and then another week I'm taking off in October I doubt I'll be able to swing this.

    God this lineup is so good. If I wasn't already going to FYF, I so would do this. Wish FYF had Youth of Today, BTBAM, Real Estate, Beach Fossils, Lagwagon, Santigold, Wavves, and Diamond Rings...just to name a few. However I'm beyond stoked for Desaparecidos and Quicksand.

    I want to see PiL again so bad. Stoked to see some new material live. And overall this really is a great line up. Was just in Austin earlier this year on business. Very cool town. Lots of good eats. Like this

    I stayed in the historic Driskill hotel. It's beautiful inside and supposedly haunted. Damn nice place, although the rooms are not that big.

    Another great thing about this festival is it ends around 10 or 11 and there are always after-parties with these artists at the venues around town. I hope I win the guess the fest contest. I had so many of these bands on my list.

    So I was blinded by visions of flying ground beef and shredded lettuce. Taco Cannon is not an actual taco cannon. It's a stupid name for a local band. Bummer.

    Another poster I saw said "A Taco Cannon" which made it sound like it's an actual cannon that shoots tacos. If otherwise, that's the biggest fucking tease of a name, so fuck those guys.

    Can anyone give me a quick lowdown of the vibe/deal with this concert? Lineup is great, right up my alley. I've been to Austin, for ACL Festival one time, loved the city, had a good time at the festival, but I'm not really looking forward to standing in a blazing hot field for three days half a mile from the bands. Like, is this 8 thousand people, as opposed to 80 thousand? Is it generally decent weather at that time of year? Vendors good? Is the VIP (pip?) worth it? Security not overbearing? Any help would be, well........, helpful.

    they hold it at a place called Auditorium Shores. I think there are maybe 20,000 or so people that attend. vibe is way different from acl. it's definitely worth experiencing. never done pip though.

    If I'm looking for a hotel room, is pretty much anywhere downtown convenient to the Festival? i.e. Would I need a car? Is renting a bike an option? Is it still blazing hot by early November?
