    The full lineup is being announced on May 27th at 10 am, and they will have a kickstarter for ticket purchases available.

    I'd really like to see a show at Pappy and Harriet's again, so I'm hoping that the Dandy Warhols play on Saturday so I can make it down.

    I remember liking what I heard of Stripmall Architecture like four or five years ago on turntable.fm from Grossmagic but I have never seen them or listened to them since.

    Does anyone have anymore info on this festival like whether it has ins and outs, what the camping is like? I backed $100 for a weekend pass and a campspot regardless, but just curious if there is any more info. the festival page doesn't give too much info.

    Camping is, I assume, spots on the corral campground in Pioneertown, which is right next to the venue. And I'm 100% positive that there will be ins and outs. It's a pretty relaxed atmosphere at Pappy's and Harriets.

    awesome. I've never been to Pioneertown so I'm looking forward to this. Pretty sure I'll do this solo, which for me, will be a first.

    Hmm. The Dandy Warhols either don't know if they are playing on Saturday, or are not playing on Saturday. Hopefully the former.

    Dandy Warhols most likely will go on around 10PM Saturday. Every year the headliners played Saturday on the outside stage then after midnight the party continued on the inside stage.

    Oops, yeah, I meant Friday not Sunday. I guess that makes sense, they are the biggest name so they'll close it outdoors on Saturday. Awesome.
