I can't imagine what the campground must be like for that festival. Oh wait, yeah I can, I live in Texas.
Edit: The first week I got my job here I was invited to a barn dance. I had no idea what the hell I was getting myself into. It was basically a college party like any other--beer pong and Busch lite--but there also happened to be some two step dancing going on as well. Yee haw!
Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of it. From the outside, it it seems like it's growing by like 200% with each passing year. I'm not even sure I'll have a chance to get anywhere close to anything next year, and I'll be living in one of the buildings where one of the bands played this year.
Has anyone ever done SXSW? That seems awful to me, it's just like one giant line and realizing I am not nearly cool enough to get into any of the shows I actually would want to see.
I went last year and had the time of my life. The way it's portrayed in the media and what it's like for the average person on the ground isn't remotely the same. Journalists and other people with connections will spend all of their time trying to get into these super exclusive parties while I just posted up at a cool party each day and saw lots of great music.
Wow Lollapalooza probable headliners are really bad. Mumford & Sons, The Killers, The Postal Service, Phoenix, The National, and Vampire Weekend. This is turning into a bad year for headliners in general.
Do you think every festival collectively shit their pants and signed The Postal Service to a headliner slot the second they announced they were touring? They are headlining/subheadlining what seems like half the festivals in America this summer. I bet if people realized that they would be EVERYWHERE this year they'd have been more hesitant to book them.
