Would love to go to this if the price wasn't so hefty and it wasn't a pain in the ass to get to the hamptons.

i was very excited about this...until i saw the price. Vampire weekend and Bright Eyes are not worth $200.
Pretty ballzy to have the ticket prices comparable to coachella bonaroo and lollapalooza, especially considering they have like 1/5 the amount of bands and they arent that hefty of names.

This won't sell.

NY-area festivals just don't work (Field Day, Across the Narrows, APW), even with superior lineups. I like most of these bands, but a $200 price tag + parking is insane. Also, 2 of the top 3 and 3 of the top 6 are from NY, so they already play here frequently for much less cost. Silly.

Field Day, Across the Narrows and APW were all awesome fests I was so pissed to watch them fail. I remember going to the Across the Narrows date when Oasis headlined and it was absurd how empty that place was.

What an absurd amount of money! I hope the VIP has open bar for close to $700! And it's 2 day pass or nothing also..WOW!

Edit: No open bar for VIP. Who's going to go to this?
