    Default CREATE A FESTIVAL - ROUND 2 - L'AVENIR FESTIVAL VS. MUERTOS FESTIVAL

    Round 2 - L'avenir Festival vs. Muertos Festival

    Welcome to round 2 of the create a festival contest. Here the match ups last 4 days instead of 3, in hopes of people taking their time and putting some thought into their vote, because it's pretty important by this time.

    So take some time to look past headliners, listen and explore the smaller bands, and take whatever else into account and then cast your vote. Each winner of a round 2 match up will BE REQUIRED to submit set times for the next round. I'll be contacting each winner personally to give them more info on that and the time frame. Failure to submit set times results in you being forced out of the tourney.

    Remember, no alias (or those I suspect are aliases) votes, and no one under 100 posts is allowed to vote either. Enjoy.

    L'avenir Festival:



    Muertos Festival:

    For sure, I already have an idea of the "Final 4" at this point. (In The Tomb) is one of the best ideas for sure.

    As much as I've always wanted to see Sigur Ros play inside a Mayan temple.....the Muertos line-up sucks shit through a straw overall. John Williams? Kylie Minogue? Violent Femmes?

    Muertos may be hard to beat, but L'avenir has some inspired choices (RHCP and Tool are not headliners I want to see, but there's still plenty else there I want to see). L'avenir gets my vote.

    I do agree that the "In The Tomb" idea is brilliant, and it's hard voting against most of Sunday's acts in particular, but again to me, L'avenir has some inspired choices.

    What do you mean who is Zero 7? And yes I think this is a problem billing wise for sure. And putting them below 311 is a no no. And yeah Muertos gets my vote, I wanna be "In The Tomb" and besides I speak spanish so this helps on any problems traveling and its pretty much my backyard since my family is from Guatemela and the whole Mayan Temple thing takes me back to that kinda thing. Oh and the food would be killer, also the best coffee too.

    muertos wins in the aesthetics department, that's for sure. l'avenir gets props for zero 7, but sunday's lineup makes no sense whatsoever. so i can come at three and leave at seven? is that what you're trying to tell me?

    sorry. just trying to provide some perspective here. good luck with this.

    the billing for Stroke 9 is humorous being as they can't sell out a lounge bar in San Francisco.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    I think Passive was going with what he liked and not with what would attract an audience in terms of draw.(unless I am wrong. Passive, explanations please)

    how sad. i'd rather fly all the way to mexico than drive a couple of hours south to ToC, NM. id' still go to L'avenir, since it'd be so close.

    it was a really tough choice but i really like muertos overall.

    i have a personal problem with madvillian featuring danger mouse though.
    madlib is all you need.

    Alright lemme explain what I was trying to go for...

    What I wanted to do, for each of the three nights, was to capitalize on a near-specific genre of music that I like, for example:

    Night 1 - Pop-Rock (The Offspring, Stroke 9, Nine Black Alps, Nightmare of You, The Automatic)
    Night 2 - Ambient Music/Trip Hop (Zero 7, Thievery Corporation, Hooverphonic [who apparently I'm the only fan of on this board... oh well], Broken Social Scene, Mazzy Star)
    Night 3 - Rap/Hip-Hop (Nas, Tricky, Madvillain ft. DangerMouse [which I admit is my way of squeezing in a Madvillain performance AND a DangerDoom performance], and Lupe Fiasco)

    I originally had Living Colour instead of 311, but Brandon pointed out to me that they're broken up, so I rushed my second choice for someone to play before RHCP.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    I'd like to know how that 'tomb' exactly looks like, but regardless to that I like the Muertos lineup overall.

    Dia de Los Muertos has a WAY better and catchier name. And a sweet poster.
    And... the Violent Femmes.

    Yeah, Zero 7 is pretty awesome. But they do not deserve billing over Gorillaz who is a headliner on the other festival. Then again I suppose I'm not the one to go to for billing purposes.

    L'Avenir seems like a Kroq festival to me. Not sure why. The poster is ace though.

    Muertos has too much good going on. Esspecially some choice hip hop acts.

    Believe me, if I wanted to even remotely touch that approach, my poster would be less KROQ and more Pretentiofest 07'.

    I wish I didn't know who was behind both of these. It's making neutrality a lot more difficult.

    Both of the posters are gorgeous. Both lineups are real mixed bags with some good and some bad. I don't understand the name of L'Avenir: why is it in French? It's cute that it's in Truth or Consequences, but I don't understand the language choice. I like Big Sky and Cityscape more than both of these.

    I'll think about this more later.

    It's in French because I figured everyone else would either do English or Spanish names and themes. That and I can actually speak French.
