  1. Re: How big will the crowd be for Axwell Ingrosso?

    I'd honestly never heard of these guys before the lineup, meaning I'd been making good life decisions.

  2. Poll: Re: How Many Sets Do You See on an Average Day?

    I think 9 sets is my average, with a couple of those being split. Number's probably a little less for Sundays because I show up later do to being dead freakin tired.
  3. Re: The Weeknd Closing Out Main Stage Over Jack White???

    What the hell are we even arguing?

    All three headliners serve three different purposes. They did their job. Drake will draw the kids, AC/DC will draw the mature crowd, and Jack's the balance...

    Yawn. Even if I was a local, I'd maybe only get a day pass or two for this. Another year it is, then.

    Wonder if they can resist putting Twin Peaks on the Twin Peaks stage.

    If we have Nero and Axwell ^ Inwhoever both closing the Outdoor, I wonder what that means for Sunday's Outdoor closer? EDM on the Outdoor isn't unprecedented, but I really don't like this trend.

  16. Re: My name is _________, and I am excited for Florence and the Machine

    Breaking Down is their only song I dislike, so it needs to go away already, but I doubt they'd play such a pee-break song during a 55-minute set. I still think Drumming Song kicks ass, though.
