    Odd tidbit - but I caught the last couple songs of Kasabian, then casually walked up to the front row for Tycho. Ended up getting a Kasabian guitar pick simply for standing there. Kind of wish it...

    Considering that the festival sold out in 30 minutes last year, I'd be shocked if the price didn't go up some. Simple supply and demand dictate this. But Paul Tollett doesn't always follow the...
