Id rather have a fest with tons of conflicts then a fest where I have to stretch to even find 5 bands I must see. I will not be sleeping all weekend. and oh yeah the late night possibilties are endless. I called a few long time rooers and after I told them the lineup there was no more convincing. this fest will sellout in a week!
sigh. another fantastic looking festival that i won't be able to pull off this year. way too pricey and i'll never be able to get that much time additional time off work after having all good > camp bisco back-to-back weekends.
they are definitely aiming at a large portion of roo's potential customer base with all the uncertainty about their lineup...don't be fooled for a second. this is a strategic move on their part.
i'm calling up all my cousins in michigan and telling them to go to this festival
Maybe I'll throw myself to the dogs, but my back's not to the wall Maybe I'll lay some bricks for the man, but the days just aren't that long So if I settle back and chill will I see far enough to feel the angel's dream? I thought it was the Story of the World!
It's situated in a really great part of the state. Now I'm all confused, the people who are going with me to B'Roo definitly won't have the cash to go but I live close to this so I may be a loner and go solo being it's in my state.
i think it's going to be summercamp-->rothbury-->all good [if the lineup is good, sure it will be] with nelson ledges thrown in there somewhere.
this is going to be an amazing summer =)
come to 4/20 at the ledges and celebrate chronica with us! or chronzaa. whichever denomination you prefer. the waterband is so good its crazy. my favorite band in the world... IN THE WORLD! summer hookah is gonna be awesome too!!! and gratefulfest is my favorite fest every year. but any of them will do. everything at the ledges is quacking awesome! the burning riverband family jam the first weekend in june will be a good one too. basically take your pic they are all incredible!!!
Peterpants---you will not have to go solo, you can hitch a ride with me and whoever i end up going with. you were kind enough to offer a ride to roo, its only right to return the favor =)
dudewheresmyroo?---ive heard nothing but great things about the ledges. it looks so beautiful! i cant believe a place like that exists in OH haha [no offense to you OH kids]
Thanks I really appreciate that. I know the cash situation will be too much for my friends. They're like 16 credits a semester types with a one day a week work schedule. Again thanks I might have to take you up on that. I could drive there, just some people to chill with would be nice.
DAVE MATTHEWS BAND CONFIRMED TO HEADLINE SATURDAY NIGHT AT ROTHBURY

Early Bird Tickets to ROTHBURY will go on sale on Wednesday, February 27 at noon EST at www.rothburyfestival.com and at 1-888-512-SHOW (Open Mon-Sat 9am-9pm CST).
Wait a minute. I live in OH and I don't know what you're talking about. Ledges? PS since you guys apparently venture down here every once in awhile, anyone going to Hookahville?
/cue dudes huge paragraph on how awesome nelson ledges is ;D
oh.... now i feel like i let ya down becca. ok.....
the ledges is beautiful! there is a quarry for swimming with a beach, cliffs to jump off of, its full of the most wonderful people in the world, you an have campfires, camping is in the woods so its shady and cool, they have fire spinners on the beach at night, alot of the bands play all night at campfires. its truly just an amazing experience everytime i go to the ledges. its impossible to describe ya just have to experience it. check out the photos on the website and youll get a small idea of how great it is. and they have tons of fests all year long. there... that should do
I'm still suprised Michigan's allowing a festival. After 1970 they passed laws prohibiting mass gatherings after the Goose Lake Pop Festival in 1970. That brought 200,000+ to Jackson, MI for 3 days. I have an awesome concert video of it. My Mom went.

so since I have extra $ from not going to roo I was thinking of doing VIP camping for this fest I've never done VIP before even at roo I've always just done GA...but it looks like it doesn't include much? Anyone else considering VIP?
The cabins look sweet but I think I would feel out of the loop!
Anyone hear anything about security I read on another board from a local that they are preparing it to be pretty tight....I hope it's not another waka another reason I'm consider VIP...so I don't have to deal with the hassle of first fest chaos..
