Glad I'm making the trek from S.Dak for the 2nd year. Excited to see tons of bands, but I can't wait for TV on the Radio and Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson - check them out people.

obviously a dark time for indie music.

this lineup absolutely sucks, and i am ussually very tolerant to mediocre festival lineups... but this? man i really hope whoever goes has a fun time, because you payed waaay to much for it as it is.

good luck to ya's!

oh and for all you jamsters on this website, if this and cochella are your only indie exposure, don't feel discouraged, as there is actually great music called "indie rock".

it's just not here.

man monolith was pretty cool last year.. Kings of Leon and Cake absolutely killed the first night. The Flaming Lips, though usually rather weak-sounding in concert, nailed an awe inspiring set to the wall the second night... that alone was worth the ticket price, with a shitload of other bands, even if most of the ones i saw kinda sucked... i just don't know about this lineup though... maybe if Del were headlining...
