NYT called Nicki Minaj "the most influential female rapper of all time", but go on..
And if Drake can headline Coachella, then Rihanna most certainly can.
At the end of July. And Refused is specifically not opening that date, which leads one to think they will be at FFF. And Faith No More will not be.
Looks like I fucked up by booking a place for Weekend 2.
Oh really? You might not like those artists, but it's ridiculous to think that Rihanna or Nicki could never headline Coachella. Both have had plenty of critical success, too.
Arctic Monkeys are definitely at least at Phoenix's level of popularity now.
Also, VW has a way better catalog and has had more hits than Phoenix.
Trying too hard.
Ezra 2 days ago: "Right now we’re definitely gearing up to start working on another album but, we’re not in a zone of like getting in there everyday or anything. There have been discussions, of...
How about all 3 headliners have chick power?
Vampire Weekend, and especially Arctic Monkeys, could both easily be headliners without a co-headliner. Especially if the other two headliners are money.
I don't think we'll have a rap/hip-hop...
Yes, that's how lawsuits work. You need a plaintiff.
Does this mean The New Pornographers are done touring for a while? I think they only played one Texas date on their tour, and it was a fest (FFF).
As long as Iron Maiden opens for them.
Built to Spill were great last night at the Granada in Dallas. Glad I got to see a full set since I only caught about 25 minutes of them at Coachella.
nice setlist for a club show. Good to see...
Fleetwood Mac is one of the biggest bands in history. There's no way they are anything less than a headliner. Steely Dan is a musical history blip in comparison.
I love how the smallest show has the best opener. Haha
Columbus - Kid Rock
Orlando - The Temperance Movement
Buffalo - St. Paul & The Broken Bones
Milwaukee - Buddy Guy
Kansas City - Ed Sheeran
Nashville - Brad Paisley
Rolling Stones openers are being announced.
Raleigh - Avett Brothers
Dallas & Minneapolis - Grace Potter
Detroit - Walk the Moon
I think Blur is possible but probably unlikely. FFF could definitely afford them if they wanted to, though.
Also, if Ratatat was a headliner, wouldn't they be a blue stage headliner rather than...
I kinda liked them until I saw them live. One of the shittiest shows I've ever seen.
Zedd is very likely for next year. This fest booked fucking David Guetta in 2015, so I don't think they really care what is played out to Sahara heads.
Yeah this fest sucks so please don't come.
Psychedelic Furs & The Church - 2015 Tour Dates
Aug. 8 – Buffalo, N.Y., The Town Ballroom
Aug. 9 – Silver Spring, Md., The Fillmore Silver Spring
Aug. 11 – New Haven, Conn., College Street Music...
MMJ would be a cool headliner for this fest
I heard they're doing Sunday Bloody Sunday acoustic now so at least they are mixing up the arrangement.
Short answer: yes.
They've clearly spent a shitload on the stage and custom sound system. The band is really proud of their new songs (per their interview on Fallon), and they'd better be,...
Avetts and Hozier lol...
Because I'm still interested in who one of my favorite festivals might book this year, even if I don't particularly like them myself.
Sorry, I should have said, because they suck.
Oops. I forgot that happened cuz I don't care about them.
Might make this a double header with Mark Knopfler earlier in the evening. Hmm...
Well, the Guess the Fest site has the correct 2015 dates for the fest in the top left corner rather than last year's dates.
But yeah, I thought they said they weren't doing it this year?
thanks for the heads up, just entered.
It says tickets are on sale May 20.
2 nights at Moody please and thank you
Yes, St. Vincent needs to headline this festival. I doubt Faith No More will be there since they are already playing Austin Music Hall, but Refused is curiously absent from that bill, so they are...
Orange stage predictions:
Pick 3: Sleater-Kinney, The National, St. Vincent, Spoon, Pixies, Ryan Adams, Noel Gallagher, Wilco
others: Hot Chip, Sharon Van Etten, Charli XCX, War on Drugs,...
hope The Kills play FFF again
Yeah, and Roky's never been a good singer to start with. They definitely warmed up a bit after 3 songs or so, though.
Not sure which of these Mac DeMarco dates are new but a bunch are:
08-11 Boston, MA - Royale - http://bit.ly/1JKUo1q
08-12 Portland, ME - Port City Music Hall - http://bit.ly/1GytGch
Sunday was pretty great!
GOASTT – solid
The Myrrors – way above expectations, absolutely awesome
Mac Demarco – I heard him play Reelin’ in the Years, that’s all I have to say about this...
I should probably start my own CoS.
see Patti Smith, obviously.
I'd be more concerned about the possible lightning. Tornados never happen here.
I saw people complaining about parking again, did you have problems getting out tonight?
some dude just posted a picture on FB of a Metallica 2015 Tour t-shirt from Rock in Rio tonight with a June 6 date for Austin. X Games.
Maybe this is a California thing, but nationwide, not really.
I don't think Blur was an underwhelming headliner because of their performance (unlike Stone Roses who sounded horrendous, or...
no Psych Fest for me today, but I have a Sunday pass for tomorrow. Has the ground dried any?
