WOW that's a pretty stellar line-up. I need to see that Rothbury line-up before I make any decisions though. Only gonna have enough extra cash to hit up one fest this year.

Sweet!! Yesterday I caught Willie play with Asleep at the Wheel at a Record Store in Austin, and he sounded good. Reminded me a bit like Jerry how he delivered his lyrics. That calm soothing voice. And how he smiles and seems at ease.

This fest always seems like a good idea, until I get there. Everything costs extra. Parking costs extra, late nights cost extra, there's a $10 service charge for every ticket, you can't bring your own beer you have to buy theirs, etc. I've been a few times, and I like the lineup, but Jay Golberg's greed knows no end.

after the first day they usually stop checking bags so you can bring beer in without problems, paying for late nite blows and last year i got half my shit stolen hauling bags between the car and the campsite but this line up looks great, forsure worth the hassle

Wow. I've been doing everything in my power to overcome the urge to go back to Camp. This lineup, however, continues to get better and better. There's nothing quite like adding a living legend to spice up a bill.

Also, for a late night idea/fantasy, I submit my vote for a collaborative effort dubbed Those Two Dudes. This would include the multi-instrumental genius of both Keller and That 1 Guy. Potential insanity.

Lucky Summer Campers!

all I can say to all the moe. and Umph fans is you better stop what your doing, drop your perconceptions, and roll over to see the one and only most revered Wiliee Nelson! Stop, Drop & Roll over to the Willie! it'll solve all of life's problems!

I really HATE to say I told ya so! bassnectar and EOTO! and they listened to me plea for some future rock. now we need some Zmick action, and we'll be set.

PS - Zmick and Cornmeal tonight (saturday) at Canopy Club!

insignia Sat 2/28/2009 12:37PM

my guess for late night so far would hopefully be lotus, Eoto with bassnesctar opening. DSO the last night, hopefully a tag team collab, but probably not, and thursday nigh would be some smaller bands for free, FGC, umelt and future rock was last year, might be the same again, or close. I could say it aa thousand times though, after that llotus show last year, we need a late night.

agreed insignia, Lotus latenight! they tore it up last year.

this line up is exceptional. Although it does suck that the latenights are extra $, its probly because it would be against fire codes or something if everyone just packed in there. it is definitely major BS that u can't bring in booze. quite greedy IMO

went last year, had a blast...willies addition made it for me, and that 1 guy. state law prohibits alcohol inside state parks, sucks, that why you can only buy it from their sponsors, not that jager is bad...but come the second day no one checks bags coming in

I don't know if I can handle 3 days of um and moe plus assnectar, yuck. the other acts are okay. even though i live in chicago I doubt i'll head down there. atleats at rothbury I can bring all the beer i want and not have to pay extra for latenights.

i think its also funny ppl complain about late nights too. cuz you get just as good late night shows at the campfire stage. some late night cornmeal and greensky bluegrass. that will be great.

anyone complaining about umph and moe headlining are idiots

umphrey's is one of the greatest bands and same with moe.

i'd rather see them than flaming lips or OAR for christ sake

they should be headlining they are the two best bands there

don't get me wrong i love everyone else who is playing so far besides a few who i just odn't listen to. eoto DSO msm&w willie cornmeal u-melt clypool keller lotus family groove buckethead bassnectar all grate but they can't do it like umph and moe. thye just lay it down every night. they'll fuck your ear pussys with there sensasional playing. it wouldn't be the same if moe and umph didn't play the big stage everynight. all we need is STS-9 to be there and its set

along with yonder of course

rage party at fort knox whos ganna be there......STILL WAITING!!!
