wow. this was implemented MUCH better this year. I love even just being able to see all the artists' photos, rather than just the name. It makes me realize how amazing the lineup is. I spend enough time researching that I can make my own choices anyway, but it would be cool if you could prioritize them and it would give you a schedule based on that
Is anyone else surprised that the Black Keys is the most popular band so far?
No. Everyone loves them right now, and their appeal crosses genres. Also, while I found their high placement (particularly above Buffalo Springfield, SCI, and Wayne) surprising, I'm beginning to think it was more justified and I think AC/Superfly knew exactly what they were doing.

I didn't go last year so I didn't pay that much attention to it, but this seems to be a big improvement over last year's Zoltaroo setup. I'll have to spend some serious time with this later familiarizing myself with all the acts I only kind of know.
WSP is big with people who live in the south and like generic southern rock.
Matt & Kim and Sleigh Bells are big with people who live everywhere else and like better music.
Both of these statements almost made me want to say something in defense of WSP. Then I thought about it. I've seen WSP close out Roo 2 of 5 times I've been to Roo, and they haven't put out decent music since before 2001.

I know it sounds like everybody is blowing these guys over this site but I just need to join in. It's really good. I haven't seen anything close from an ease of use and quality of production stand point (involving music festivals).
