    bring on the major leagues

    Wow this is like...real festival level. I'm no Mumford fan and am completely unfamiliar with Tool but there's enough there that I might go for three days anyways. And this bodes incredibly well for future years. If we're going from two barely worth attending weekends a year to one legitimate festival and a fall beer fest every year this was an enormous upgrade.

    My favorite festival lineup to be announced so far.

    They could have just had Bon Iver headline instead of Mumford lmao

    This is a better lineup than Bonnaroo. Unbelievable. I've been planning to go on a festival trip, and this might be the one. Chance, The XX, Bon Iver, Weezer, 1975, Cage the Elephant, Nathaniel Rateliff, Run the Jewels, Modern Baseball, Pup, Car Seat Headrest, Mitski, Run the Jewels... and those are just the artists I actively listen to, so add in Tool, Mumford & Sons, Sigur Ros, The Hotelier, Mac DeMarco, etc. who I'm sure put on great shows, and this is maybe the most stacked lineup I've seen.

  11. What a killer lineup. Gotta go this year.
     
  12. Hope weekend passes go up soon. Was tempted to grab a 3 day even knowing its highly unlikely I can make it Friday

    We were just talkin' bout the Jesus. Prestigious

    best festival line up imo.

    edit: I mean... they got Natalie Portman and not the band about her haircut.

    I can probably only go to 1 day of this so I'm hoping Tool, The xx and Piebald are on the same date! Even 2 out of 3 would be cool haha

    That's a damn solid lineup, probably my favorite along with Shaky Knees. Smaller fests are killing it this year compared to the bigger festivals. Mumford & Sons is the only stain on that lineup.

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    This lineup is fucking fantastic. I haven't been so envious of a festival lineup in years.

    @maybevictor Prestigious

    whoa i was so amazed by the lineup i didn't even notice Hotelier / Piebald in the smaller type

    I'm more confused that Piebald/MoBo/Pup/Hotelier are billed in the order they're billed in. Missed Pup earlier too

    welp i bought a three day pass. worth it to see xx, bon iver, chance, solange and sigur ros alone IMO. Lucy, Major lazer, whitney, danny brown, rtj, weezer, mitski and 1975 are all good bonuses.

    Really impressive lineup. Not a lot of acts but there is no filler.

    I honestly don't care much for Tool or Mumford, but Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, The XX, Weezer, The 1975, Chance, Solange, Car Seat Headrest, Mitski, Modern Baseball, Run the Jewels, Tegan and Sara, Frightened Rabbit, Whitney.....damn. I'm going to Coachella and yet this smaller/cheaper fest has me all jealous haha.
