Is it me, or does this lineup sound just like 3 other festival lineups already annouced? I don’t remember another year with as many rehashes as this one.

Yeah with how many festivals there are now, it’s literally just the same group of bands on rotation during a one to two year span. It’s a small miracle if your fest gets an actual big time act that isn’t anywhere else (Dr. Dre and Black Sabbath would be two this year). It’s a bit depressing.

agreed. i’m most impressed with the outside lands line-up so far, since they seem to have done the best with mixing up the line-up and not re-hashing all the bands. i wish voodoo would pull off a major shake-up at the end of fest season and get some non-touring bands like rage, mumford, SOAD, QOTSA, wu-tang, ghostland, etc,. since they need to get a good lineup this year to make up for the dropped ball last year, but we’ll see…..

I guess someone got you guys with the phony Bon Iver scratch off card, huh?

For what it’s worth, I’m told both the Bon Iver and Chili Pepper cards were ‘fake’/photoshopped. That didn’t mean that they were/weren’t going to play, but it sure makes things confusing.
