September 3-4, Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA
Bad lineup, IMO. Will wait for the days to be separated to see if I want tickets. I'd love to see Chance and am interested in seeing what Weezy would play. Khaled could have some cool guests. Uzi is a plus.
I think the lineup is great. Rihanna, Coldplay, Jamie xx, Chance, Grimes, Mustard, Khaled will be super fun, St. Lucia, Desiigner, Uzi and Yachty, Gallant, Basement, Touche, Car Seat Headrest, Sophie Beem, Kevin Devine, Day Wave, Cherry Glazerr, From Indian Lakes, Aaron West, Porches, and Into It. Over It.
None of the major headliners jump out at me, at least compared to Ye/Beyonce/Modest Mouse/The National from the past few years. Even the lesser known rock acts don't interest me. Last year you had Hop Along and a few others that were dope.
I can understand that, but this is the first lineup that I've actually been willing to spend the money on. My friends who go to Villanova have gone for the past few years, so I'm excited for it.
It's definitely a fun time, I'll be drunk for most of it anyway
this lineup is really great, would have considered this as my fest of the summer if i didn't already have pitchfork, am considering coming up for saturday if the day by day lineup is solid though
FKA twigs just got added.
The top part of this bill is such a contrast to the lower end. Basement, Touche Amore, Aaron West, Kevin Devine, From Indian Lakes, and Into It. Over It. on the same bill as Rihanna and Coldplay is strange yet very cool.
Went to this from 2012-14. Always an AWFUL crowd, mainly due to the fact that the people who turn up to this are not regular concert goers. Maybe I'm just used to the NYC concert crowd though. Also, was so pointless when they booked indie stuff like Phoenix, the National, Spoon, Miike Snow as only about 5% of the crowd knew them.
Maybe one day, this will actually take place in STL. Not holding my breathe though.
Wait do they sell single day passes or nah?
Going Sunday I think
I feel like From Indian Lakes is really random given the rest of the lineup.
they just put that on there
IIOI, car seat headrest, aaron west, touche, kevdev, porches?
Set times are up. There's a few conflicts for me. Porches and Uzi overlap a bit, SZA and Car Seat Headrest overlap a little. I don't know if I should catch Yachty and Touché, or catch Yachty and DJ Khaled late since i'm seeing Touché headline in October. Other than that, it works out great.
No Grimes on there?
Grimes dropped due to illness, which really sucks.
Be there Sunday
Well I'm glad I didn't commit to tomorrow then. Gonna save $$
Looks like Lil Wayne just announced his retirement. Wonder if that means we're just getting a 2 Chainz show tonight?
Kevin Devine was saying something on Twitter about how the stage with him and touché was basically abandoned by the rest of the festival
Like, attendance-wise, or by organizers?
