The Killers are my 4th favorite band ever and I'm pissed if that tells you anything. The Killers JUST FUCKING HEADLINED. And they were just in Chicago in December. This isn't exactly an exciting draw.

And when I say the Killers just headlined, I will amend that to the more honest, they headlined just 4 years ago, in 2009, which wasn't that long ago. And Phoenix just headlined in 2010.

I wouldn't be upset about the lack of EDM in the headlining slot. Perry's is getting more bloated every year and I'm sure it will attract some good acts in line with what you're looking for. Probably best to separate the two. It's annoying having to deal with rave bros camping all day long.

When I already know that I'm not getting any of the following artists, I'm already a little bummed:

bassnectar, calvin harris, Felix da Housecat, Flosstradamus, Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, Zedd, Zeds Dead, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, David Guetta, Empire of the Sun, Kaskade, Tiesto

(Yeah, some of those were at Lolla last year, I was just listing the artists at other festivals in the area that I have even a remote interest in seeing)

I'll admit, though, that my greatest disappointment is in regards to Empire of the Sun.

I feel like Empire of the Sun is a total exception to that list.

Well I mean mostly everyone you mentioned there is some form of trance, house, or dubstep style DJ. I feel like them and Calvin Harris don't really fit on that list.

I was actually surprised to see that Empire of the Sun performed on Perry's. Not crazy surprised though, considering the nature of most of their fans. I just always imagined them as a bit more of a synth based rock band, not a DJ set.

Plus, they're an exception because they're the only thing I'd consider seeing

Well yeah I know that much. I was at Lolla last year! That's how I figured Empire of the Sun played it, because everyone else on that list was obviously a Perry's band.

Santigold played Perry's. They're not picky.

I'm so torn right now. Part of me wants to hold out hope and buy the tickets tomorrow and then if it's as bad as I'm expecting, sell them.

But, then I remember that I could see at least four other big shows this summer for the price of Lolla.

I can't choose .

It's a good investment. You're guaranteed $300 by June, just depends when tickets go on sale for the other shows that you want.

I'm actually buying two right now (and if a third friend joins us I'll resell it to them at face, otherwise take a profit).

EDIT: Bah, I got what you meant now.


Anyways, it's $400 now because there are two of us. I'll get the $400 back eventually if I end up selling the tickets, but I just don't like the idea of paying $70 extra if I end up liking the line up.

Good luck to everyone buying early bird passes tomorrow! I tried for that secret sale which was a complete waste of time. Hopefully these won't sell out in 2.4 seconds the way the souvenir passes did
