  2. The Format


    Outside of a few standouts, this is pretty underwhelming.

    that being said, Lauryn Hill, Japandroids, Fleet Foxes, Courtney Barnett and Julien Baker would cool.

    Haven’t heard of 95% of these people. Then again this along with Coachella and ACL cater to the hipsters

    So much to say about this one because I see the sentiment often

    1) The fact that you don't recognize 95% of festival acts doesn't mean they're "hipsters," it just means you're out of touch.
    2) "Hipsters" is from like 2008. The things that used to describe hipsterism are deeply mainstream now.
    3) You not having heard of an artist should be an opportunity for you, not a slight to them. May sound wild, but you may not know ALL the good music already!

    To be more on topic...Friday looks good to me, but Julien Baker and Big Thief potentially over-lapping is truly the stuff of nightmares for me.
