this all i have to say. 08 is the best year for music fans in a really long time. 08 is a change for presidents and a change is needed. 08 is a year of festies, if you can not have fun this summer then there is something wrong with you. its fun to say which is the best and which is the worst when comparing, but the truth is, there is something for everyone. this addition is awesome, phish is talking OMG, all we need now is a talking heads reunion and i am set for life. I LOVE LIVE MUSIC. CHEERS TO EVERYONE WHO IS GOING TO A FESTIVAL, I FUCKING LOVE IT.

I love some Umph. They are, in my opinion, the 'tightest' group out there touring. I've never seen a band go balls out and stop on a dime and go a different direction like they do... good shit!

bnaylor started it out right by saying "CHEERS TO EVERYONE WHO IS GOING TO A FESTIVAL..." I have never been to vibes, but I definitly have come close. I wish all festival goers to have a blast this summer, creating unforgettable lifelong memories and friendships! YEHA for live music!!!

bnaylor and toaster have the right idea, so take note of what they say. it simply ain't about which fest is better, as long as you kick back and listen to the music, EVERYONE will have a kick-ass summer! with each new addition, these festivals are growing extra plump and ripe, and i suggest everybody take advantage of it! see you at allgood!!

GOTV last year was the best time I have ever had at a festival. It looks as if this year may top that with the addition of UM.

I agree with Rulosa01^^ How can the breakfast NOT be playing this festie!? they're from CT and have a nice following (translation: can sell tickets.) also Roots of Creation would be a nice fit for similar reasons.

Thank God, a real headliner for Friday night. I love the vibes, but jenn Durkin bores me although Deep Banana is a tight band, they are no headliner
