    i'm really surprised about all the complaining about the line up so far. Especially from anyone who has been to an ATP before. i mean, the thing i learned is what you think is going to be great, often turns out to be not so great (for me last year those bands included crystal castles, atlas sound and caribou) and then other bands that you had no or low exceeded expectations (for last year akron/family, oneida, el-p and black dice) and then, some are as good as you hoped they would be (again, last year... panda bear, jesus lizard, no age).

    it's a hard concert to judge by line-up because it's not totally about the line-up. it's about having an open mind, hanging out with like-minded people and just enjoying a well-done, high-quality experience.

    with that said - i agree, the line up (so far) is a little less "hype" buzz then last year. for sure. but that's not to mean there are not tremendous acts on the bill. i was so excited about the michael rother project when i read about this morning.

    sonic youth! tortoise! fucked up (sorry i grew up a hardcore kid - i'm excited), dungen... the names might not be at the tippity top of pitchfork's current "cool" list, but they make for a nice diverse line-up in my opinion.

    again - just my opinion

    i'm more than surprised. i'm kinda disappointed by people. this thread is for ATP love. being critical is OK, but there is too much ranting.

    i for one am more excited than ever for September to roll around... if the lineup stopped with this i would still feel like i got my money's worth.

    I already have more bands at ATP that I really want to see than I did at Coachella: The Stooges, Sleep, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, Explosions in the Sky, Fuck Buttons, Hallogallo, The Books, Beak>, Papa M, Sleepy Sun, Sunn 0)))/Boris, Raekwon, Girls, Fucked Up, Dungen.

    And I'm sure that I'll watch a handful of the bands that I'm less excited about, and I'll enjoy them thoroughly.

    There's going to be at least another half dozen bands add to Sunday, alone, so I'm not the least bit concerned.

    Agree with both Jared and Brad. I think the lineup is outstanding and even if it wasn't (which would never happen) I would still love ATP. It's the best US festival around with the best people. Period.

    Yes, and it's extremely distressing to me. That's right after a wedding I'm in so I'm going to be broke as shit and these flights aren't helping. I blame it on the holiday weekend.

    I'm very excited with the lineup so far. Saturday is going to be such an awesome day. I'm curious as to who else we will get on sunday, but I also haven't heard most of the bands, so I'm sure there is already stuff I will like. This is definitely the festival I am most excited for this year, the experience last year was much more enjoyable than the large crowds of Coachella. Not that I don't love Coachella.

    I have trouble getting over the fact that I will be seeing some of the bands we are seeing this year at ATPNY.

    Yes, it is definitely the holiday weekend making flights more expensive.

    AirTran has flights for $233 right now (I am coming early and leaving late, btw.) Stops in Atlanta, but still. This is the cheapest price I've seen and I've been paying attention for months.

    Don't have grits for breakfast at the Atlanta airport. It will seem like a really good idea, at the time, but they're really unsatisfying after a couple bites.

    I still can't go to ATP, but if anyone has a lengthy layover in Atlanta, I'll treat you to breakfast/lunch/dinner at either Waffle House or Cracker Barrel.

    Ohhhh Waffle House. My brother was looking at the menu, pointed to something, and said, "That gave me food poisoning last time I was at a Waffle House." He proceeded to order the same thing. He got food poisoning.

    Same...And now my boyfriend might not go because that weekend is the only time he can go home to see his family because his work doesn't give him a lot of vacation.

    a super close friend is moving to atlanta to get his phd at georgia tech. i might be seeing more of waffle houses if I have my way and can make it down every so often.

    although last time i went to waffle house i got called a fagg0t. but that was in kansas city, so i'll chalk it up to that...

    I can't guarantee that you won't be called a youknowwhateffword, but I can guarantee that their hash browns will be amazing.

    In thinking about it more, if the next round of bands is still super obscure (because, honestly, I'm clueless on the new adds, minus the Neu-supergroup) I might just have to stay home. Still don't have a job, yo!

    But Sonic Youth/Iggy/Breeders is just such a huge draw for me.

    Fuck dudes, if the Raincoats are added, I'm there. If not...I have some thinking to do

    Besides, I'm probably already going to Matador at 21 since I'll have places to stay...And it's soooo soon after.

    Anyway, I said my piece and I'm satisfied with Jamie's response (and I appreciate him responding at all when he obviously didn't have to). It's all good. Very much looking forward to year 3.
    Yes, but that communication usually consists of telling us to be patient and stop whining/hyperventilating over expectations and that the reason the fest was a miserable logistical experience this year is the fault of the gate-crashers, not the fest organizers. Whereas ATP has an agent on another festival's board being as helpful as can reasonably be expected.

    Oh, no, I wasn't talking about the Coachella rep. I meant the ATP rep. And yes, he is very helpful and I do appreciate him even bothering to come here to provide updates.
