    Has anyone ever been? I'm mapping out my plans for this summer and I'm debating doing Friday and Saturday (would love to do Sunday, but I'm sure I'd have to be back for work).

    I've never been but I'm going this year. I've heard it's a lot of fun and just the headliners alone justified the 3 day for me. Also really excited for Mitski and Pinegrove (who are both heavily rumored). Should be a great weekend, especially if LCD has some new tunes out by then.

    Mitski has a date in Grand Rapids, MI on 7/12 so I'd be she's in.

    It felt a little overcrowded at times last year but it's worth checking out

    Let's hold our breath until we disappear

    When is the lineup supposed to be announced? Sorry if it has been posted already.

    They've been kind of vague. They announced the headliners last Monday, but the rest of the lineup is supposed to be coming probably within the next week or two. I wouldn't be surprised to see it Friday or Monday. Not sure what the hold up is, but I'd think they'd want to get it out before the Lolla lineup comes out.

    I just impulse bought a ticket to this. $175 for 3 days is so value, makes travel and accommodations much easier to swallow for me. And the lineup that they're slowly revealing is great so far.

    Fuuuuuck this is great.

    Really considering doing Friday and Saturday. If Sunday had a little more I'd love to do the whole weekend.

    Fuck I just wanna see Pinegrove play a club show lol.

    Really really hope they'll do an aftershow. I hope Mitski does one too. A 45 minute set or whatever they end up getting won't cut it for me.

    Yeah, I mean id love to branch out my music tastes and see a bunch of artists on the bill in addition to Pinegrove, but I just don't have the cash to front for it now. Combined with the fact I was out of town for Lolla/Pinegrove's after show last year, Andrea then they had to drop the Kevin Devine date in Chicago as well

    That's totally understandable. Luckily I've been planning on going to Pitchfork all year so I was able to make it work, but it does suck when bands you want to see end up at expensive festivals. I really really lucked out with that Kevin Devine tour because I was in Michigan for work when that tour rolled through and the venue was like 15 minutes from my hotel, so I was planning to go to that anyway, even before Pinegrove dropped Chicago. I think it was the last show they played before Evan had to leave.

    I really do think they'll do an aftershow though, so you have a good chance! If not, I'm sure they'll be doing a fall tour. I'd love a Pinegrove aftershow with Jeff Rosenstock opening. Idk if that makes as much sense to anyone else as it does to me, but I'd love it.
