I only went one day last year because I was on crutches, but it was a blast. The Replacements killed it on the stadium stage, and Kishi Bashi blew us away on the lawn. The only downside was the indoor electronic stage filled with preteens that made it basically impossible for us to get to Negativland. I rank it above Block Party now because that's become a UW frat brofest, and their security is possibly worse.

I'm trying to figure out what this could be. It doesn't really make sense with the way block party is scheduled unless it's a bunch of different stages mashed together. Ratatat would he on the main stage but they wouldn't have music going past midnight outside. Oh well, I'll be quite happy if ratatat, Jamie xx, and com truise play.
That would be cool if they started doing "late night" style sets on the main stage after the headliners at Block Party.
Noise ordnance would never let this happen, and as cool as it sounds, the ludicrous amount of alcohol-infused U-district bros would ruin everything for everyone.
