Sort of weak headliners aside, I give this lineup an unequivocal 10. It is insane. Saturday makes me want to cry already. I want to see literally everything on that day.
Thinking about it over coffee, as I am wont to do, I don't necessarily think it is a coincidence that both the headliners and the highest billed Sahara acts are a step down in profile from last year, though, while the overall lineup is deeper. The reaction from people who maybe came for Guetta and Snoop and the party on my Facebook has been overwhelmingly negative. Not just like, "this is a lame lineup and I'm upset" but more like, "there is a 0% chance I will go to this, I'm selling my ticket as we speak".
Can this sell out two weekends? I think it can, from the brand alone. But how quickly? And instead of scalping, are we going to see a lot of people sell their pre-sale tickets this year?
