Anyone who'll be out in the Midwest in early May should check out the Nelsonville Music Festival in Nelsonville, OH. This year the Flaming Lips, Neko Case and George Jones are headlining the fest, with over 30 more bands to be added in the coming months. Information on tickets, camping, etc. is available at www.nelsonvillefest.org — hope to see some of you Sasquatch fans out in Ohio!
I just bought my tickets to the Pitchfork Festival this summer. Initial lineup has Animal Collective, James Blake, Curren$y, Fleet Foxes, Dismemberment Plan (!), Ariel Pink, TVotR, Cut Copy, Odd Future, Destroyer, and some others. Anyone else going?
While the Pitchfork Fest is the biggest crowd of hipsters you'll ever see, the lineup has been pretty bomb several years running. Just that first list of names is worth the money, and there are 3x that many to come. James Blake is sweet but I'm SOOO excited I get to see Animal Collective this summer (after being denied by squatch)
i'm considering buying a pair of tickets for the Pitchfork festival just in case Lolla's lineup sucks... which is possible.
The other thing about buying tickets to these fests is that they sell out, and so if you have the capital, you can really decide later if you're actually going, and just find a buyer (face value) for the tickets.
