$399 for a 3 day pass is actually pretty good... you'd pay like triple that to see all of these acts individually.

I've seen all these performers (when I had more $) through the decades so I don't have to go

(was lucky to sit outside Forrest Hills Stadium last summer to hear The Who one mo' time, since I couldn't afford to be inside They sounded great Happy memories!)

Are we going to see old hipsters cruising the Oldchella fairgrounds?

So much money to see a bunch of people past their prime that I wouldn't go watch if it were even free because it just ruins the music for me. I'm a massive fan of all of those acts except The Who even. Neil Young and Waters (and Floyd for that matter) were at least undeniably great live acts into the 80s when those other ones were already cheese-fests. McCartney getting back on the tour circuit at the end of the 80s was already a boring nostalgia fest for boomers.

And Dylan isn't really a savings issue here like the other ones are...his shows rarely ever actually sell out and few people beyond his most dedicated fans think he's even that great in concert. I've known a lot of people that have seen him live this century and they said they couldn't even tell what songs he was playing most of the time because he's that uninspired a live performer, so for him this will be a massive increase in audience.
