Well, to be fair, I haven't been to a lot of others, but for one its in Austin and more laid back crowd wise than ACL. Another plus is that all aftershows are free and they will bring in bands that aren't already on the lineup. The comedy is usually top notch and will be announced soon. There is no line for comedy like at Bonnaroo so I actually catch some of it. They also have fun stuff like Master Pancake Jukebox and National Air Sex Championships. It's just a great time and easy to navigate.

Television is still a performing unit?! I figured this would be a reunion gig but a visit to their wikipedia page tells me they've been active since 2001! I've never seen them on fest lineups or announce tour dates? Hope this is a sign of more to come and same goes for the Replacements Riot Fest gigs.
Excited for Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Vampire Weekend, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Elton John, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Jack White, Janelle Monae, Damon Albarn, James Blake, Arctic Monkeys, The Flaming Lips, Phoenix, Ice Cube, Phosphorescent, Disclosure, Neutral Milk Hotel & Cut Copy
8/2: Flume with Duke Dumont and Anna Lunoe
8/8: Oddball Fest
9/5: Kings of Leon with Young the Giant and KONGOS
10/05: Bonobo with Kastle
10/17: Porter Robinson with Leimatre and Giraffage
4/17-4/19: Coachella Weekend 2
Hope we get some good crossovers for Voodoo because I can't afford to do FFF this year. If I lived within a 5 hour drive of Austin, I would be at this fest every year. It really sucks that this is same weekend of Bear Creek this year. Hope it's not like that every year from now on.
I completely blew it on that guess the fest thing. Only got like 2 right...Mac DeMarco and Deerhunter. I thought for sure they'd get Baroness since they couldn't play last year due to accident. Blew it on many others because I got the weekend confused with first weekend of Nov when looking at tour dates. Can't believe they got Slayer again. Hopefully they won't play a the same time as Jurassic 5.
