Best Coast, Wavves, and Against Me! are all playing. wondering if there will be any other crossover. HEALTH, Portugal. The Man and Titus Andronicus on Friday, that would be sweet. The Hood Internet in the dance tent would also be sweet.
I don't know how they do it but that festival continues to get worse year after year.
Seriously. Last year there were a couple bands I was willing to sit through all the shit for. (Andrew W.K., Agent Orange, Reel Big Fish) but this year there's hardly anything I would really want to see.
I'm still probably gonna go though just because all my friends go and it's still alot of fun
quite a few bands just got added to the full summer schedule, check it out
I'm hovering on the Lolla website because they're mentioning this Secret Sale in which tickets are $60/person and they're not announcing when those go on sale.
I can't even tell you how many times I've refreshed the damn page.
Anyone know anything about it/when they released that last year?
The secret sale came and went at some point this afternoon. Like within a few hours.
I'm a little late to this, but there is some insider knowledge on when the secret sale is, because each year, many of the regulars on the Lolla board end up getting them, and I don't think it is because they keep hitting refresh. I remember a bunch of regulars were posting the top secret info one year, and all the others regulars got pissed because it would lower their chances of getting them, so everyone had to delete their posts. Those tickets usually sell out in seconds.
It's pretty annoying though, it gives many regulars an excuse to brag about getting them whenever people talk about how bad the lineup is. "I would pay $30 to see Band A, and $30 to see Band B, so I totally think the lineup is worth the $60 I paid," and, "really, $20 a day is totally affordable, I can't believe you aren't going."
Sled Island announced another huge batch of bands for their festival, and it's fucking sweet. Got my pass all lined up and since I'm not attending Sasquatch this year this my big festival for the summer, so I am happy with it. The rest of the line-up comes out on May 1.
