RHCP, TBK, Black Sabbath, ATDI, M83, Franz Ferdinand, Gambino, Gaslight Anthem, Band of Skulls oh yeah. I bank on going for one day (can't afford 3) so hopefully most of them play on one day as was the case on my Sunday last year.

I'm not as excited about the headliners as I am about the under card. I'm especially stoked for The Weeknd and the fact that Perry's won't be under a tent this year.

Okay, okay...ADTI too. :)

Am I the only one upset about the headliners?! Black Keys I (they just did a stadium tour). Was really holding out for Killers too. Florence maybe the biggest draw for me.

But black sabbath, wtf? What demographic is perry going after here, your all ready trying to pull 90's influence with RHCP.

Guess last year's headliners were solid top to bottom and we got spoiled....

The day acts though, damn good bands which make up for the lack of big name support. Really excited to finally see Gaslight Anthem in a outdoor venue.

Just not looking forward to spending $80+/day on beer for three days straight haha

You do know you could just not spend $80 each day on beer, right? That is an option.

definitely think this is the weaker lineup of all the major festivals this year.....but I am pretty jealous of them having Sigur Ros and Bloc Party.

Agreed. Not as stoked on the headliners, but the rest is great. I just missed M83 and Fun. wen they came trough here (separately). Add Gaslight, ATDI and Gambino an you've already got 5 bands I REALLY want to see.

$230 isn't bad, but I'm mainly gonna go cause I live here. Probably wouldn't travel for this
