From the people I have talked to that have been to both or just one: This fest could make a run to be one of the most popular fests in the summer. Yea July 4th either really sucks for some people or a perfect weekend for a festival .... cr*******
I went the first year. Better than all of the other festivals I've been to, BRoo, Lolla, Summer Camp, etc. Venue is incredible. The Sherwood Forest is to die for. Plenty of drugs. I encourage any and all to go. Great weekend.
I've heard the same thing Ron did, that's it's really the best festival there is. Some of my friends who have been to roo a few times, lolla, and some other smaller fests say that it's way better than anything they've ever been to. I don't know anyone that's been to coachella and rothbury though. Either way, it sounds like it's definitely worth going to.
Ok. so my friend just moved to Chicago and I told her that if the line up to this is good next year then we're going! I'll fly in to Chi-town and then drive up from there.
That's good news. I want to attempt to get that damn week off, and if I do, I'm making Jacob go with me. Midwest is usually really nice around July 4th, and Jacob has (babysitter) relatives somewhat nearby in Indiana.
(not holding out too much hope for it, but I really want to go)
