  • Ben Parker

    Love Panic-TLG-New Mastersounds-ALO, too close datewise to Bonnaroo if I do that. Plus, I hate cops.

  • Kane: would this be in response to the cops out in full force?

  • Yeah that’s the biggest thing. It’s not even an issue of not wanting to get caught for anything, it’s that it completely ruins the vibes of a festival and there’s too many other great festival opportunities to waste my time with this one. Not too mention, all those headliners can be found at better festivals I feel.

  • There’s no way in hell I’d go to this until I had written confirmation that the Nazis won’t be there.

    I heard Anne Frank is doing a live reading from her diary at this year’s fest. No word yet on whether 6 Million Jews will be in attendance.

    I’m actually surprised you haven’t posted my comments man. I’ve been coming to this blog for over a year.

    What’s the deal?

  • My crew and I ran in to no problems last year and all thought it was easily the best festival we’ve been to in a long, long, time…

    With everyone not going this year (thanks!), I’m really looking forward to there being more room to dance and less chatter at the overly crowded sets.
