    They should have had shuttle information and crowd control management post-festival available upon announcement of the new location. I know there’s only so much that can be done about the latter, but still.

    Yep, and don't forget the EP and "Orchard Park," which were my favorite songs of his until the new album.

    The chorus was honestly pretty fire.

    They sounded incredible tonight! Two cool tidbits about the show: A joke was made on stage about the sea foam green guitar and Aaron played half of G Train acoustic but didn't remember all the chords in the song Dan came out on stage as himself before the Aaron West set and played a song called Pool Day he wrote with his son Wyatt while he was away in Alask last week. Wyatt wrote the lyrics and Dan recorded it and said we'll never hear that version, but he played the song live tonight. So incredibly sweet.

    They killed it last night in Orlando. Setlist was fantastic and I’m still sore.

    The line-up is really solid for me this year. There's a small handful of bands I've never seen or haven't seen in a long time, a few I'd be more than happy to see again despite having seen them recently, and some really strong "if nothing better is going on" acts. And a lot of the bands toward the bottom of the poster that I'd never heard of and are kinda rad. ...But I'd be lying if I said it wasn't fully that Laura Jane Grace/Catbite OpIvy set, the Lawrence Arms, Dilllinger Four, and ALL that got me to pull the trigger. One fully uniue get and three "they don't really ever tour" bands. That whole NOFX stage is fully my shit but those are the ones that made me say "fuck it, I'm going." (And I think there's a bunch of that throughout the poster. But it's all pretty niche. Like, Public Enemy is a really solid get. But there's a very specific type of person who would be stoked about them in 2024. And... I'm one of them. LOL)

    Last time he did something like this it took his wife publically calling it gross for him to delete it. (Something about fuck around and find out with the slaughter in Gaza. I don't remember it all because I try desperately to stay off all text social media platforms. I don't even know why I know this much. :-/) I'm shocked he hasn't double down on "I meant it in the medical term usage" like everyone used to do when they were 5.

    He simply could have said ANYTHING about it, good or bad, and chose to do the exact opposite. Coward.

    i think im still warming up to this line up . there arent many i actively dislike, but i didnt have that many instant "holy shits!' either, especially in the upper card - when look at everything above the marleys, the only instant must sees for me are sublime, cypress hill, the hives, and SoCo. but also i will absolutely get myself excited about public enemy, pavement, st. vincent, Mastadon and a few others by September the Nofx vs headliner will be tough choices every night, may depend on which albums nofx does (if they do any). NOFX probably gets the easiest win over slayer but the other two may be game time decisions. things heat up once we get to the nofx marquee and the bottom section with that incredible hardcore line up + sincere engineer, souls of mischief, the mysterines and saxsquatch. Lords of the lost being a Eurovision band makes them an attraction ill need to check out at least for a bit, haha

    Definitely my thought too. I don't think it's even really a "map" and we'll have a clearer idea of the layout a lot closer to the fest.

    My take on the "map" is that it's Mike's fever dream and it'll look like 50% of it.

    I read it as five stages total, and they're all the same size. With roughly the same number of bands as usual (and presumably no headliner that demands an unopposed slot), I don't see why they'd go to more stages.

    If you’re at the hotels at Midway and have a rental I would drive. I imagine the Ubers will be out of control. Just wait and see what they do about the shuttles first. I work right next to those Hotels and my advice is not walk it.

    I'm actually debating on whether or not a rental car might be worth it this time around. Especially if I wind up splitting the cost of an AirBnB that's 10 minutes away... The ability to just get in a car, drive the 20 minutes (assuming traffic) will inevitably be worth it to not have to deal with ride-shares. Plus being able to drive to/from the airport, etc.

    Man, today's been a wild ride. Canceled that shitty motel. Booked a room at the Double-Tree Hyatt as a "just in case." Got a text from a friend who lives in Normal, IL and had bought a ticket last year wanting to split an AirBnB... My partner, who had said she didn't want to go, noticed the Laura Jane Grace/Catbite set and is suddenly considering it leaving me having no idea what the fuck I'm doing or what I need to book (or not book).

    Yeah true maybe they did speak, but it just feels weird regardless because now the Red Stars have to find a place to play which idk it’s like “hey we’re moving in and kicking you out, deal with it” and not helping find a solution.
