haha i know. it's actually got tons of obscure blues artists no one's ever heard of that play throughout the day, but no one goes to see them... they need big names to pump the city full of money.

BB King is playing tho so at least there's some mainstream blues

yeah I hope I can see him this summer too. He's playing Sasquatch and I didn't get a ticket yet, but I will.

they actually got a pretty good lineup for hip-hop. El-P, Killer Mike, Danny Brown, P.O.S., then a bunch of shit like Macklemore and also Death Grips (lol fuck that), but yeah they got some pretty heavy hitters this year, at least in terms of rap.

The electronic acts are almost unanimously disappointing though....

yeah, bands often stop off at blues fest during their tours. for example Weezer played their Memories tour here in 2010 and Rush did the time machine tour in 2011, and Skrillex (lol) is stopping for his latest tour as well

ugh SORRY POTSY

I will try to refrain from sharing my opinions when you are present.

Obviously I am excited about Baths and Grimes. Toro Y Moi kinda sucks if you ask me, and I saw Twin Shadow and he wasn't very good live. But compared to other major festivals, they didn't do a great job with the electronic portion of the lineup. I mean it's better than it usually is (some combination of Bassnectar/Skrillex/random popular EDM artist), but I'd like to see them start to get some better, and maybe some lesser known acts.
