    I want to see most of these bands, but it's hard to bring myself to support a new festival startup that isn't making an effort for diversity in the lineup at this point.

    I can't justify the $150 price tag for this, especially when I have seen most the bands I want to at Taste of Chaos over the last two years, a $20 fest
  5. Dan O'Neill


    That is an amazing list of bands.

    Solid line-up, but it's nothing particularly special. Feels like they're going for something between Riot Fest and Fun Fun Fun... I love a lot of the bands from the headliners to the undercard, but there's more bang for your buck at other fests (that, as has been pointed out--have a bit more diversity).

    Especially if you go to shows pretty regularly. You can see most of these bands easily enough. Not quite worth traveling to for me.

    From what I can tell, tickets are not yet on sale.

    Don't ever go to a festival at this venue. There's so many terrible stories from Chain Fest and Beach Goth, so terribly run.

    I've heard a ton of bad things, which makes sense knowing what the layout is over there, I just don't get how it would ever work well. Otherwise Observatory is a solid spot for regular shows, but festival? Ehhhh not feelin it

    i'd say blame Morrissey... take him out and i bet the festival is a lot more affordable.

    100% agree. I think they also justify by making it a 2 day festival instead of one. Either way, not for me

    oh it's 2 days?! ahh so much less interested now. spot on with your taste of chaos argument

    Woah. $150? I didn't even know what the price tag was when I said you could get "more bang for your buck" elsewhere... Oof.
  15. Schooner


    Awesome line up!! Would be so over this if I could get there. Bring on plenty of great male bands

    Morrissey has already cancelled.

    $150 seems a little steep for this. I just paid $120 total for 2 people over a two day span for The Killers, Kings of Leon, the 1975, Fitz, Andrew McMahon, Foster and more.

    This is my home venue and I live 4 minutes away, but I can't justify that price tag knowing how much of a cluster it will be.
