Posted in Music, Music Festivals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2008 by attemptedmustache

I’m starting to see an emerging pattern here… and it seems like every festival is jumping on the bandwagon. Nonetheless, it IS that time of the year, and all these Festivals ought to be sprucing up their lineups to bring in the peeps… and the $$$.
One thing is for sure, they aren’t making it easy on those last minute opportunists who are trying to weed the weaker festivals and settle on a winner.

Bonnaroo announced their lineup’s latest round of additions:

Tiesto, Stephen Marley, Newton Faulkner, Money Mark, Rogue Wave, The Wood Brothers, and The Coup.

For those that haven’t been keeping up to date, the previous round included:

Cat Power, Zappa Plays Zappa, The Disco Biscuits, MSTRKRFT, Chromeo

Rothbury Festival Comes out of Nowhere!

Ever since the release of the Coachella 2008 lineup, I’ve been reeling and writhing in agony just waiting for a better festival to present itself. Then out of no where the Rothbury Festival arrives… and… furthers my fall into a sad sad musical depression.


The Coachella forum has been rumoring this mystery festival for a little while now, and it seems like there are plenty of people out there just like me just waiting with baited breath for something better to come our way. I’m glad to see I’m not the only opportunist. And whats that shit they say about how idealists never succeed?! I won’t believe it!!

Either way, it doesn’t look like this is going to be THE festival I’ve been hoping for though… but the lineup is pretty decent, just not quite enough for me to take the bait. Seems that the longer I wait the more my hopes on Lollapalooza, Sasquatch and the All Points West Festival seem to grow.

As per the Rothbury Festival: (To be held in Rothbury, Michigan between July 3-6)

Here are some of the highlights:

Dave Matthews Band + Widespread Panic + John Mayer + 311 + Phil Lesh and Friends + Primus + Thievery Corporation + Snoop Dogg + Modest Mouse + Michael Franti and Spearhead + Gov’t Mule + Slightly Stoopid + STS9 + Colbie Caillat + The Black Keys + Yonder Mountain String Band with Jon Fishman + Gogol Bordello + Citizen Cope + Keller Williams and The WMD’S + The Disco Biscuits+ Medeski Martin & Wood + Ray LaMontagne + Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew Revival + Drive-By Truckers + Of Montreal + The Dresden Dolls + Gomez + Brett Dennen + Taj Mahal + Mike Gordon + Zappa Plays Zappa
