I really wanted to go this year but I can't justify the price of the flight for a 2.5 day trip...especially since I've never been there.

Are you going??

I'm not sure, though I've been thinking about going Sunday (especially since those are the only tickets left).

This is by far the fastest it has ever sold out. As a matter of fact, individual days typically never "sell out" until the day of the event, when the venue buys the rest of the tickets up for publicity's sake. It's fucking May.

Sunday has gotten deeper for me now that I've discovered the Jezabels

It's going to be a great weekend. Shame about Franz/The Weekend and the insulting placement of Sigur Ros. I feel so much sympathy for their hardcore fans with tickets. I may skip them, honestly.

Just had my tickets shipped out today, and saw the calendar.

Friday looks terrible to me, but that's okay because I'm going to be late arriving in from Orlando anyways. Only two acts from Friday that I can say for certain is The Shins and M83.

As for Saturday, Delta Spirit will probably be my earliest sure show, then Temper Trap. Kinda pissed that they put fun., B.o.B., and The Temper trap all at the same time. Probably gonna have to end up skipping Franz and just sitting tight for Bloc Party, and then off for (most likely) RHCP.

Here's the laughs though, Sunday is hands down my favorite day. Would've seen Mona early in the day but I'll have to pass as Bombay Bicycle Club will be a definite. Got a conflict with Sigur Ros and Gaslight Anthem, but considering I like Gaslight way more and Of Monsters and Men and The Big Pink follow them on the same stage, I'll probably just sit tight for that. Which would mean missing Florence, because they conflict. Sunday is full of conflicting times for me. Don't wanna miss Miike Snow either though... might see Childish Gambino as a headliner. Not sure yet.

Gotta work out a plan between my friends and I.

I think I'm doing the exact opposite of 7 for the entire weekend.

No, really, I think Friday (with the Tune Yards/Washed Out aftershow) is unstoppable (and conflict-free) and Sunday is a giant clusterfuck. They took the weakest day and paired all the good bands together.

I have decided to skip Fun and Sigur Ros altogether. I know I love those bands, but the point of the festival is to have a good time, and people may very well get trampled at Fun. Sigur Ros is supporting one of their weakest albums in the middle of the day, and with that hour long set, they'll probably play 6 songs, mostly from Valtari. I'd much rather see the entirety of Dum Dum Girls and Gaslight Anthem.

Thinking of seeing the first half hour of Florence and then catching the Jezabels' set. Florence is great live, but I've already seen her, and Ceremonials didn't add a lot of must-sees. Maybe they'll play What The Water Gave Me early.

I thought Dum Dum Girls were awful when I saw them at a festival last year.

Not as awful as sitting through Valtari material in 100 degree heat.

After re-considering as a group and getting more input from person #3 in our trip, it looks like we're adding a few more acts.

Friday will be the same (late arrival):

Die Antwoord
The Shins
M83
Black Keys

Saturday:

Delta Spirit
The Temper Trap
FUN.
*Washed Out
Bloc Party
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Sunday:

Bombay Bicycle Club
*White Rabbits
The Gaslight Anthem
**Sigur Ros (I'm not going)
Of Monsters and Men
The Big Pink
Childish Gambino
Jack White

Since Gambino means nothing to me, I'll just go to Jack White because my friend wants to go (despite the good spot I'll have for Gambino).

Okay not a whole lot extra, just Washed Out, really. I'm excited though! Six days.

I was up real damn close just 30 minutes from Temper Trap and they came out and announced that the show had been suspended until further notice due to weather

Just finished up with fun. from a million miles in the back. Got a good spot ready for Washed Out. Awaiting word on Temper Trap/Alabama Shakes to see if they're rescheduled for Sunday or just flat out canceled.
