    it looks like Coachella minus the more unique acts like Jeff Mangum, Pulp, GY!BE and Dre/Snoop... plus, Bonnaroo has Skrillex

    Coachella wins

    An absolutely ridiculous statement...half the lineups the fucking same.

    Bonnaroo 2012 has 5 buzz acts I totally wanted to see on this year's Coachella Lineup - Kurt Vile, The War On Drugs, The Antlers, Charles Bradley & White Denim...Coachella has The Weeknd, Yuck, Destroyer, M83, WU Lyf...both fests whiffed on a lot of the strong SF garage acts out there right now like Thee Oh Sees, Fresh & Onlys and so on and so on.

    Coachella Does have Pulp, Refused, Company Flow, Squeeze, Buzzcocks, At The Drive In vs. The Beach Boys...so I will concede a straight up Coachella win on the reunion front...but as someone who prefers Jam bands to DJs, overall,I'd call it close to a wash...and this says nothing to the fact that Lolla has had a better lineup than Coachella two years running.

    Don't get me wrong, Coachella's always my favorite fest...but more for the vibe/venue versus the lineups...which have become pretty comparable...and highly interchangable...between the 3-5 top US fests.

    No kidding, that's a totally braindead thing to say.

    Coachella has had the best lineup since 2007 to 2012 compared to all other festivals. Possible exception might be Bonnaroo 2009 which was pretty dope and the only one I would have gone to.

    I completely disagree with everything you said here. How can you say Lolla had a better lineup than Coachella two years running? I went to Coachella and Lolla last year and Lolla didn't even compare to Coachella in terms of the quality acts that I saw. Even most of the EDM lineup at Lolla was Coachella's sloppy seconds. I had a great time at Lolla, but Coachella is a much better fest overall, not even just artist lineup wise.

    Here's a thought experiment I shared with my Coachella friends. If you carry it out, it's an opportunity to test your assertion that the two fests are the same!

    I'm thinking something like this: A band that plays Coachella and only Coachella for the past time period (say three years) gets +1. 'Roo, -1. (Or flip the plus minus, doesn't matter to me).
    A band that plays both in the same year (::cough cough:: Radiohead among others) gets 0.
    If they played one fest one year, and the other the next, they get a half point on the more recent fest e.g. Skrillex -- Coach last year, Roo this year, so -0.5. 0.3 if they played one two years back and are now playing the other.

    Then average the scores for each festival over the past 11 years, or however long they've been in existence.

    If the two festivals were absolutely unique, scores should be +1 and -1.

    I'm wondering how much convergence toward 0 i.e. every band playing both festivals with no unique acts at either, there would be over time.

    I imagine there's someone who's more into stats than me that might nit pick with the numbers or the methods, but it's a start.

    So, have fun. This thread will look forward to your perfected methodology and results at the end of next week :-)

    Bonnaroo is awful this year. Just completely awful except for the headliners.

    There is very little on that poster I'd actually get excited about, and most of it is at Coachella. If Bonnaroo was my festival I'd be pissed. But then again it's two entirely different crowds, looks like most on Inforoo love it.

    Coachella looks way better, but Bonaroo does have better headliners, by the looks of it. Ben Folds Five is also a nice get.

    People will argue that. I would take both Phish and RHCP over the black keys but I would take no headliner mentioned at any festival over Dre and Snoop. Radiohead at Bonnaroo > Radiohead at Coachella

    Completely agree with this. And the only thing resembling untz is the skrilly??? ouch. No thx bonnapoo

    I am a little jealous of Black Star, little dragon and the roots though

    I would take both Black Keys and Dre/Snoop over either Phish or RHCP any day. But I can also easily see how that would be reversed based on personal preferences.

    I was planning on going to Bonnaroo until I saw that lineup, all my friends are in love with the lineup. HOW?! I know its because they already bought tickets during the pre sale and dont want to think they are getting screwed. I will not be going to that. No Jack White?!? how did that not happen? I was holding out for something amazing but it didnt happen. The farm is fun and pretty magical but I cant wait to walk on grass this year at the polo club! That dust last year at Roo was way too much. I will miss being able to roll joints out in the open though and buying a pipe on the grounds. I love having a festival pipe collection.

    3 random people hugged me immediately after it ended. I was completely out of my mind and wasn't sure what was going on.

    Black Star (Mos Def + Talib Kweli) and The Beach Boys are both unreal gets but other than that this lineup pales in comparison to Coachellas

    But I would never go to Bonnaroo, Waaaayyyyy too many people

    I may have missed it but I think it's interesting that the Roo and the lineup is an article on CNN but I never read where they announced Coachella or the lineup. Did I just miss it or does this mean in the mainstream media, the Roo is of note but Coachella is just another festy? cr****
