Ditto on the Big Top Tour back in 1997. I went. It was great.

All the Disco Biscuit’s ARE FAR FROM ALL ELECTRONIC, FAR FROM IT, and they still SUCK.

You must have gotten custied on lot. Don’t hate, you know they are very talented. Yes very far from electronica, they are a jam band.

Maybe they forgot, or this was way before their time, but it’s surely not the “first-ever touring electronic ONLY music festival,”. We had the Big Top Tour back in 1997. You could argue that if you took that lineup from 1997, and had it in 2011 it is better then the lineup for this festival tour. With that said, if this hits my area, I’d most likely go as well.

I don’t care if it’s a punk, metal, country or an electronic festival… Someone needs to just put a leash on these things. It’s cool to have more options, but it’s like a new one sprouts up each day whether it be touring or multi-day. Today’s IDENTITY Festival is tomorrow’s H.O.R.D.E. Tour.
