Pretty Lights is my favorite EDM act. I just saw him on New Years Eve. I was actually right up on the guard rail 2 years ago, but for some bizzarre reason I am not in the I Know The Truth music video... Maybe I'm not pretty enough haha.
The XX are great. Surprised ppl are just now getting into them, but welcome aboard!
my first bonnaroo was 2011. Since then, the only new music ive listened to were bonnaroo acts. i snapped out of this in early november, and started searching for some now jams. turns out a good portion are headed for the farm anyway....lol
Roo is so great for expanding which bands I know and love. There are tons of groups I never would have even known to contact this year that I'll soon be in love with. The discovery process of listening to each name on the poster is a big part of the fun after lineup day.
My first was 2010 and The xx closed out my initial night of Roo. Unfortunately I virtually fell asleep during xx as I'd been driving all night then waiting in my car forever to get to the campground.
I tried to see them again a couple months ago in Portland. About thirty hours before the show I took off driving from North Dakota for PDX. I got there an hour before the show and sold my ticket on Craigslist because I was so fried from driving and a couple thousand milligrams of caffeine. I really need to get my rest before their show this year. Totally going to sleep beneath the bumper of my car again so I can enjoy the show haha.

I got my first response! I sent off a message to Hive Management and did the typical "Will Young Empires be playing any festivals because I missed them earlier this year" Got a confirm for Bonnaroo! Probably a Thursday act or even possibly cafe but whatever, it counts!

Hah @festivalsnob is a joke. He's just ripping off info from here and Coachella's forum, with a few "guesses" mixed in. And I can tell he's full of sh*t because several of the things he's said about Coachella are flat out wrong. I hope he gets HorseAIDS, or that Super Flu which is in the process of turning Boston into "the Stand."
Swag for mentioning The Stand. Hope they don't actually do a remake. The woman with the white streak in her hair was one of my earliest crushes. I will be watching this movie this weekend now.
