Run the Jewels has to play, but I don't think they'll headline. If there's a hip hop headliner, I'm thinking Kendrick Lamar would be more likely, especially after his SNL performance a couple weeks ago. Possibly Wu-Tang, but not likely since they just played Bumbershoot.
Friday rap headliner is a tradition that should continue as long as its not Macklemore.
Run the Jewels should sub! Kendrick seems like a good candidate for rap headliner. The combo of A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg could be a candidate as well. I saw an interview with Ferg the other day where he said they want to play shows together in 2015.
They are playing the Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas Memorial Day Weekend. Given the the relative proximity of Nevada and Washington along with modern advancements in transportation technology, I consider them a plausible and fucking awesome booking.
Edit: Rancid is also playing that festival. I don't think we'd get both of them, I but I consider either one equally likely and potentially awesome.
Sweet! Rancid would be a pretty creative booking for the festival and I think it would go over pretty well!
Looking more and more like I'm just going to have to wait for the lineup to buy. Too many of my pals aren't sure yet.
Debating presale. When I looked earlier the pass was $325 and premier camping was $225 (no fee). Now the pass is $350 and the camping has a $27 fee added (plus $20 shipping). I'd obviously split camping with my friends but $700+ CAD is a lot for me to drop in one day.
