    that said I'm doing a lot of fire festivals this year anyway, which are a whole different deal. mostly just random local DJs and more of a focus on fire dancing and workshops than partying. I'll also be doing a few of the smaller festivals around here, mostly Wookiefoot festivals if anyone is familiar with them. as cyn said, dirty hippies and cheap drugs... nothing wrong with that.
    What have you seen that was disrespectful? Just curious

    Let me know if you decide to do Bonnaroo. I live 10 minutes from the airport if you fly in and Manchester is less than a hour from me.

    I guess it depends on what you are used to. I mostly go to very small hippie festivals where people are overwhelmingly kind and considerate. I remember going to the 10,000 Lakes Festival for a few years in a row and as it got bigger you started to see more stupid shit - people cherrybombing outhouses and/or tipping them over, people wandering drunkenly down the highway, people yelling and screaming and generally being asses all throughout the campgrounds at all hours of the night. it's basically drunken/raging frat boy stuff. of course the trade-off is that you never get big names at the little hippie festivals - fat chance seeing M.I.A., Kanye or Gaga playing one of those.

    I doubt I'll make it to Bonnaroo but I will definitely let you know if something changes! have fun and consider coming up to one of our little jam festivals

    I usually go to Bamboozle, but the last few years I've felt unbelievably old there. Then again, most of my favorite acts have broken up/are breaking up(is this becoming a GJ song?)

    All Good showed their initial lineup today. Looks amazing so far and with 20 bands still left? I feel like it's missing a few things, like headliner/late night shows.

    Spoiler: show
    THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND * PHIL LESH & FRIENDS * THE FLAMING LIPS

    BOB WEIR & BRUCE HORNSBY with special guest BRANFORD MARSALIS *

    MICHAEL FRANTI & SPEARHEAD * LOTUS * G. LOVE & SPECIAL SAUCE *

    GALACTIC * SHPONGLE * MICKEY HART BAND * TRAMPLED BY TURTLES * SOJA *

    RAILROAD EARTH * PAPADOSIO * THE WERKS * WOOD BROTHERS * LETTUCE *

    THE LUMINEERS * EVERYONE ORCHESTRA * THE REX JAM *


    I'm really excited for the things in bold but have heard good things about all the others.

    if i'm right in assuming that those are mostly all jam bands, i feel like the flaming lips are seriously out of place in that lineup, haha.

    hmm I've had All Good on my radar for a while but never made it out. saw the Flaming Lips at a festival once and it was one of the best experiences of my concert career. wish it was closer, hrm.

    edit: oh fuck I totally missed that Branford Marsalis is playing with Bob Weir! Bobby's fun enough on his own, seen him a few times. but never with Branford, that's gonna be a sweet set. seriously considering going now, even if I have to ditch one of my other festivals.

    and when I saw the lips it was at 10k, totally a jam band festival. yeah, they were sort of out of place, but it still fit the atmosphere/culture of the festival. I mean, an acid band is an acid band...

    I went for the first time last year and it was the most amazingly beautiful weekend of my entire life. My group traveled from GA to WV but this year the venue is changing so it's in Ohio now.

    The initial lineup is pretty fierce but I still feel like it's 'missing something'; for headliner/latenight/rage shows. By the beginning of April all the other 20 will be revealed, at 6/7 every 2 weeks or so.

    Last years initial lineup felt a little more glamorous, due to the fact they listed almost all headliners, but I feel that there is some great things awaiting this summer.

    Don't let a few miles in gas be the difference in going or not.

    @tyven, I hadn't heard of any of them except the lips before I started going to festivals. even now, I only recognize most of them tangentially. the jam band scene is a pretty insular scene.

    yeah, I'll wait for the full lineup before I go but I may end up cancelling Bella - a local festival with a much less impressive lineup and a surprisingly steep cost - for All Good.

    would so love to see Umphrey's McGee added to that list. and Dark Star Orchestra. and then there's Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings; not quite what you'd expect on that lineup but I've seen them at a jam band type festival and they just plain fucking killed it. one of the most energetic live shows I've seen.

    Flaming Lips are HUGE on the festival scene. Hell, I saw them twice in 2011, both at festivals.

    I think I'd only go to All Good if it was a lot closer though, I am not the biggest jam band fan in the world.

    Probably will end up heading to Smog vs Basshead again this year, and possibly the Windish night at Grand Central (supposedly Skream's playing a set there, but the lineup hasn't been posted yet). Fuck Ultra, WMC is where its at.

    I almost booked my flight to Smog until I saw it was a DJ Set for Pendulum. Want to see those fuckers so bad live.

    Not really a festival but have any of you ever been to dayglow? Is it worth going to or is it shitty?
