my favorite magazine is helping put this festival on

I guess Gnarls Barkley being added to Outside Lands is really not happening.

I think I'm finally ready to agree that there are too many festivals.

This supermarket has too many choices. Why can't there just be 2 or 3 brands of cereal instead of a gazillion and a half. With so many cereal brands all the good stuff gets spread too thin.

seriously... this should have just been posted in the too many festivals thread...

they couldn't have picked a worse timing for this... it's like a week after outside lands and then treasure island is three weeks later... wtf is the point?

how bout a festival in sf in june or july?... i'd go.

i don't think this is marketed to the outsiders. it sounds like a local foodfest/concert.

OSL - destination fest (there will be plenty of heads there).
TI - for the hipsters.
SlowRoast - is for the hungry.

And there could never be enough CEREAL

I agree. I mean.... Isn't this the third festival created for San Francisco in the span of two years? What's more... All of those festivals are going to basically overlap. That's ridiculous.

Well, it's the same weekend of Bumbershoot, I guess if I didn't already have plans on Labor Day weekend, I might be interested. But, what the hell, am I supposed to go to a festival every week? (Maybe if I lived in Europe)

Gnarles Barkley!!!

I'm trying to decide whether to go to this or the first night of Outside Lands. This is cheaper but I want to see Radiohead. I'll probably go to OL
