If Lord Huron and Pale Waves are same day I'm in, otherwise, nah.
Lord Huron at Bottlerock on the 26th
Well, now I'm just crossing my fingers for a Gang of Youths or Turnstile aftershow.
Well.... I got nothing. Hope you all enjoy it!
Going for turnstile then leaving
If it helps you any, they're playing the Palladium on may 7th. Probably cheaper haha.
Wow that is bad.
Wow, Sunday has absolutely nothing for me. Saturday could be a fun day with Tame, Anderson, Hozier, King Princess and Mitski.
There's usually enough on at least one day for me to give serious consideration to going (although I never wind up doing it - usually the bands I want to see are playing headlining dates closer to me in the same time period.) There isn't a single band I'd pay money to see this year. Not one.
Pay money to see? Or pay the amount they're asking for a single day ticket to see?
Janelle Monae, Christine & the Queens, and Blackstar are all awesome. If you're going to be there anyway, I'd recommend seeing them at least.
Honestly I don't think the lineup is as bad as people are making it out to be. It's nothing fantastic but they're some solid acts in there. Really looking forward to Gang of Youths and Turnstile.
I mean, it's definitely not for me... But when you look at it? The line-up makes perfect sense. Both for the festival brand and what's popular in general at this point.
It's an off-year for festival line-ups in terms of shit being mind-blowing.
And this line-up is just... Not for me this year. And I can point directly to the acts that "took" the slots of others that would have been more up my alley haha. Hopefully I'm more aligned next year -- this is the first time in years I've had to find plans for Memorial Day weekend!
Actually pay money to see. Just nothing for me this year, at all. I'm sure it'll do well (and that's good!), but there's definitely no consideration on my end this year. Totally agree with you - the line-up more or less makes sense and it should please their target market quite well.
The only band on there I'd see would be Twenty One Pilots, more of curiosity than actual fandom. But, I definitely wouldn't travel out of Maine for them.
Plans have changed & I have to get rid of my Saturday pass if anyone is interested. Bought early ($100).
Janelle Monae cancelled. Replaced with CHVRCHES.
Between CHVRCHES, Turnstile, and Gang of Youths (with Lamont Price and Sam Jay as comedians that day)... Might get myself a 1-day pass for Friday if I can get one for cheap.
What is happening
Going all three days but soloing Friday if anyone wants to meet up! Here's who I plan on seeing each day:
Gang of Youths
Christie and the Queens
Greta Van Fleet
Twenty One Pilots
Big Red Machine
SOB X RBE
Rainbow Kitten Surprise
