honestly, I usually leave a festival before the headliners. No fault of the band, but I hate seeing an act from about a half mile away. And if you get any closer, it's uncomfortably packed. I tend to rate a lineup based on the "second and third line". Those are the bands that will really determine whether I had a good time. Friday looks awesome, Saturday is kind meh except FOALS is awesome, and Sunday is pretty good.
yeah, I typiucally avoid the main stage at a festival unless its someone I really want to see. And usually the last show all the other shows slowly wind down (never been to coachella), so it makes sense to go chill at the camp.
I think the lineup looks stellar, especially on friday and sunda. friday - japandroids, four tet, infected mushroom and purity ring.
Sunday - tame impalaa, cloud nothings, tanlines and vampire weekend
Saturday - only birdy nam nam and the xx I want to see and haven't seen live already.
