You mean because everyone who wants to see them will want to see them just for that?

Or because they're playing opposite headliners or something?

Because they're basically a one-hit wonder, yeah.

I saw Grizzly Bear at Lolla a couple years back and got a 10 times better spot after Two Weeks.

I don't think 'one-hit wonder' is a fair choice of words but I get what you mean.

Kinda like how nobody could stomach Chiddy Bang here in Orlando until Opposite of Adults. Well... that's more people being ignorant and not appreciating decent music and just preferring songs that are full on samples of other artists music.

Maybe not, but the majority of people going to see non-headliners at festivals are only going for one or two songs. When I saw Gotye at Pyramid there was a gigantic exodus after Somebody, even though it wasn't even the highlight of his set.

How are you affording flights from Florida btw? I thought college kids couldn't afford to buy a bottle of water.

I don't mean "one hit wonder" in a derogatory sense; the Flaming Lips were one hit wonders in the mainstream until Yoshimi. If M83 were to play Midnight City early the same thing would happen. Again, I hope it does.

Looks like I won't be seeing Black Keys. Oh wellz, they play Lolla every year.

There's a group of us. We're considering driving up there...

But my money comes from remainder scholarship money for each semester. I get about $600 for 4 months for my own free spending. Otherwise... I'm normally poor. Most of the scholarship money sends me to shows.

Well yeah but when I think one-hit wonder I think a band that's one-and-done. Can't really call a band who is currently at their highest point so far a one-hit wonder.

There's a lot of bands going in there with their one or two songs. I'd imagine Temper Trap gets the same treatment with Sweet Disposition, or Bombay Bicycle Club with Shuffle. Only reason that bothers me is because the audiences are usually sitting there staring away until they get that song. It's annoying, especially when you love that artist.

Guys, there's a great festival here. Why fight? Why It's not like we're stuck with Bonnaroo or something.

My system to figuring out the schedule/conflicts is to flip the lineup over and stick five artists in each time slot, since four artists typically play at once with one staggered between them. With that in mind, let's see this shithole I paid $200 for.

Friday

Dry The River
First Aid Kit
The War On Drugs
The Black Angels
Tame Impala
Metric
M83
The Shins
Black Sabbath

Saturday

Chairlift
Washed Out
Neon Indian
fun.
Tune-Yards
Franz Ferdinand
Bloc Party
The Weeknd

Sunday

The Sheepdogs
White Rabbits
Dum Dum Girls
The Gaslight Anthem
The Big Pink
Sigur Ros
Florence + The Machine
Jack White

Sunday is undoubtedly the weakest, but Friday and Saturday completely make up for it.

I bought two 3 day wristbands, however, my time off wasn't approved at work and now I cannot go this would've been my first visit to chicago & my first Lolla . Anyhow if anyone wants to buy them please PM me. *Le sigh*

I really hope someone benefits from my misfortune. It was not meant to be this year. Hopefully next

The tickets have just shipped and I will have them in hand by next week, and yes I am willing to sell 1 at a time, not the pair necessarily.

Please let me know if you're interested. All I'm asking for is face value.
