...that's dynamite. People who think this is a weak undercard need serious help.
Damn. Foster The People is high. Do they have any other good songs besides the hit.
If you like their hit then you'll like all their songs. If you don't like their hit then you wont like their songs. I personally dislike everything I've heard, and my roommate likes them a lot so I've heard quite a bit. It all sounds the same.
Which part are you questioning? I love 09, you can't beat Animal Collective, David Byrne, and The Dirty Projectors. 2010 was amazing because of LCD Soundsystem. 2007 rocked because of the White Stripes... but this year just sucks. I would like to see Black Star and FlyLo and Tune Yards and The Roots but that's not worth spending a grand on (and that's what me and my girlfriend would spend after all is said and done)

I'm not very impressed. It's not a bad lineup but I'm already going to Coachella and there are a bunch of repeats and also a lot of artists that I've already seen before (not that I wouldn't love to see them again, though). I'm not saying no but I'm not really planning on going either. I would kill to see TWOD, The Roots, The Avetts and Phish, though.

The problem for me is this just isn't really catered to my personal tastes well. I'm sure it's a great lineup but Im not excited for Bon Iver or The Avetts or Foster the People so after Radiohead and Phish nothing in the first few lines really jumps out at me.
Last year I had Black Keys and Buffalo Springfield and MMJ and Robert Plant and The Strokes and Iron & Wine who were all must-sees for me. This year, my must-see list goes Radiohead, Phish and then the next one honestly is Flying Lotus wayy down on like the 6th line
Amazing. Still would expect a big hip hop act to be added and another semi big electronic act. I think Deadmau5 will come around and probably the Flaming Lips as well. Surprised to not see Amon Tobin or Special Disco Version. Maybe we get them later.
I'm upset that the big non-current act turned out to be an act we all already guessed, the Beach Boys. No way RHCP leads into them or something. No way.
Other than that gripe... Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bon Iver, Feist, the Roots, Ludacris, Childish Gambino, tUnEyArDs, City & Colour, Bad Brains, Battles, SBTRKT, Phantogram, Kendrick Lamar, Mimosa, Kurt Vile, Mogwai, War on NO NO WORD!!! EMA. I'm sure there will be a few conflicts, but with so little bands I want to see out of the initial line-up, I'm sure I might get to see most of them.
Music fuels us as we continue to conquer the battlefields of boredom and artistic freedom.
