These festivals are really starting to suck big time.
Coachella does not suck.
You can still have a pretty good time, but these big ones are starting to annoy me. I thought Forecastle in Louisville had the best lineup for rock fans of any fest last year, and no one really talked about it.
It seems to be the same formula for all of the big ones. Get some outdated headliners that you know a bunch of dumb schmucks living in mainstream lallaland will buy tickets. Then try to fill the undercard with the good bands of this time to reel in the real music fans. I just wish these festivals had more balls, and it seems they're getting less and less balzy with headliner selections.
