So Eugene, Oregon (my current city of residence) is jumping into the festival market this year with a three day festival in late August. Here's the phase 1 lineup. Mostly EDM type acts which isn't my genre really. Phase 2 to be revealed "in the next 48 hours".
Is this a good lineup for this kind of music? I really have no idea.
Definitely not a bad lineup for a small new festival. A few big names, quite a few good artists under the obvious headliners too. After the rest of the lineup gets announced, I'd contemplate going if I can afford it!

The Sled Island schedule was released this week, and fuck me, it's going to be great!!! Very minimal amount of conflicts. Skipping Superchunk to see Jon Spencer Blues Explosion was tough, as was choosing between Divine Fits and Thee Oh Sees. Since I just saw Thee Oh See last November, Divine Fits won the battle.
Also, Badchoices will be happy...I'm able to catch the entire Good to Die showcase with Monogamy Party, Rabbits, Deadkill and Gaytheist. I can't think of a better way to spend my Saturday afternoon than watching these bands in the basement of The Palomino.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
