    Cool U.S. VIRGIN FESTIVAL

    I don't know if this is being discussed anywhere else on the board..but the initial lineup for the Virgin Fest in Baltimore was just announced. Police, Pumpkins, and Beasties..same weekend as Lollapalooza..which is odd. Last year it was the last weekend in September.

    This is great news..but I'm still holdin out for the Lolla lineup.

    That kind of makes it obvious that the Pumpkins are playing Lolla now, since it is confirmed that they will be in the States that weekend.

    it's also been said, somewhere, perhaps billboard.com, that some artists are definitely playing both fesitvals.

    I bet they still do. I remember last year Kanye performed at the San Diego Street Scene and flew to Chicago for Lolla the very next day. It is still very much in the realm of possibility.

    I forgot about Street Scene. Is that going on this same weekend? If so, it's gonna be a shallow pool for available artists that weekend.

    So aren't Virgin, Lolla, and Street Scene all on the same weekend this year? I'm guessing Street Scene will be the weakest.

    this is only the 2nd annual show and being that this year it's 2 days, it may be setup differently..but last year there was one main stage (chili peppers, the who, killers, etc.), one small stage on the other side of the infield (flips, brazilian girls, clap your hands), and then a large dj tent (tiesto, etc.)..they also had other tents with activities and areas to chill out

    after goin to bonnaroo, v fest seemed pretty lame..but this year sounds pretty sweet so far

    I am not expecting much. I am sure this year's Coachella will wipe out all festivals. And I am sure it won't be better than the past Coachellas and Lollapalooza I have seen... But I want to see The Police and The Smashing Pumpkins, so it'll do.

    I am kind of hoping that it gets some of the bands Coachella missed though. Mew? Badly Drawn Boy?

    I have my doubts though.

    This is gonna be a rough weekend. Only in America do 3 festivals conflict and make the amount of bands available slim to none. Share the wealth and make everyone happy ya know? Having Lolla and Street Scene the same weekend just happend and wasnt the worst thing. But moving Virgin because the Police made them move to work with tour plans is just plain booty kissing and all about money. At least in Europe the bands are spread out over the summer and you can see them a few times in different countries.

    Having three festivals the same weekend is, in fact, real shitty. Every year there are some bands that hit the festival circuit and everyone wants them, but this extreme competition is going to stretch them out too far and is going to leave, at best, two decent festivals and one shit one.

    has it been confirmed street scene is taking place that same weekend? No. I would safely bet they're having it earlier (or maybe in late august, though bands are booked for reading/leeds during that time).

    Street Scene hasn't announced their dates yet. It still says August 4-5, which were the festival's dates last year, but Street Scene typically runs on a Friday or Saturday. I bet they move it to a week earlier. As for Lolla, well, they have their work cut out.

    I could easily see Street Scene changing dates to accommodate a few bigger name artists. Their numbers have been dropping each year, pretty sure they try to get all the huge bands they can.

    Why is everybody so content with the Pumpkins not playing their hometown's festival when they will be roughly a few states away from it on the same weekend, I remember Kanye doing street scene and Lolla in two consecutive days, I really do believe now more than before that the Lolla headliners will be Pearl Jam, Daft Punk, and the Pumpkins...this is simply because the Pumpkins are now confirmed to be in the US that weekend.

    agreed. lolla also has one extra day..pumpkins could easilly play friday night with no other conflicting shows.

    To all of you who are saying Street Scene might change dates, I think you are right. I did a search on Yahoo!, and look what came up under the description of the Street Scene site:

    "September event transforming the streets of downtown San Diego."
