God, sorry Sasquatch, but I fucking wish I lived in Spain sometimes. They should've just renamed last year's Prima lineup as "Lumpy's Dream Lineup"
I know how you feel, but the thing about Primavera is that they have like 6 stages going at once. I checked out the schedule for last year a couple of days ago, and while solid, had a buttload of conflicts. Worse when there are a few hours of bands you don't like/don't know then three of your favourites play at the same time. I like Sasquatch's formatting. There are conflicts, but they are manageable. And the stages are close together enough that you can see full sets without worrying too much about missing the start of another act somewhere else.
I always drool over Prima, Coach, Roo, Lolla lineups when the posters come out, but when the set times are announced I realize that I'm only going to see 5 or 6 (sometimes less) of the bands I'd like to see on a given day.
Edit: Though I've never actually been to a major fest outside of Sasquatch, so really, I'm just talking out of my ass.
