There are so many electronic acts I want to see but I have a feeling it's going to interfere with so many other acts for me. I've love to see Avicii, Bassnectar, and Calvin Harris.

Bassnectar's new album is too good.

Well hey, at least you get to go to another country, assuming you're in the U.S., and see a great festival in the process. Would you lose money if you backed out? The official Lolla announcement is in like a day and a half.
yeah totally get to look forward to going to another country, yeah im in New York, so Montreal is actually closer, me and my friends already got my Osheaga tix and train tix those are non refundable, so yeah without doubt im still getting an awesome trip out of the country in the summer!

All these festivals are the same.

So true.

Here is the base formula for organizing festivals like Lollapalooza, Coachella and Bonaroo.

Pick a few artists from each group.

Group A:

Bon Iver
The Black Keys
Mumford & Sons
Arcade Fire
Foo Fighters
Bon jovi
Bruce Springsteen

Group B:

Eminem
Lil Wayne
Kayne West
Lupe Fiasco
Kid Cudi
Theophilius London
Doomtree
Atmosphere

Group C:

Skrillex
Deadmau5
Swedish House Mafia
Avicii
Rusko
Nero
Kaskade
Wolfgang Gartner
Flying Lotus

They are your favorite band and you can hear everything you want in 45 minutes? That doesn't even really make sense...

the festival slot time is great for bands you know some of their popular songs but aren't really into enough to sit through a two hour set. but you still need a bunch of those to show up to make it worth going.
Favorite in relativity to what the lineup is. A lot of the newer bands that only have about two full lengths or a couple EPs don't usually need more than forty-five minutes to an hour. This site seems to like Blink-182 a lot so I'll relate it to that: They've been a band for like twenty years, right? When I saw them in what I think was 2009 they only played for an hour and a half. Now when I saw Eminem last year at Lolla and if he were to only go on for an hour I'd be upset, but his two hours was perfect.

So it really makes sense, at least to me and thousands of others. To each their own.

I actually haven't given him a real thorough listen but from his bigger songs that I've heard I'm really digging what he does. His remix of Ellie Goulding's Lights has been a favorite of mine for the past year or so.

This is a great idea except a lot of those artists are only playing one or two at most of the festivals you're talking about.

Well yeah, they're meant to appeal to a lot of people so why wouldn't the current biggest names in rock, rap, pop, and electronic music be playing there?

EDIT: But yes, for the past few years the festivals have been similar. Even with that it doesn't take away from the mass amounts of fun to be had.

I've only heard of 9 artists on that list, and I only care for 3 of them. Add that to the fact that I'm not an alcoholic or an avid illegal (or legal) drug abuser... yeah, no thanks.
Damn dude. The fact that you have only heard of 9 of those artists seems highly unlikely because most of them get covered on this site. I also don't see what being an alcoholic has to do with going to Lollapalooza. I drink at a lot of concerts, but I've never drank at Lollapalooza (Heat and High Prices).

wow, why do these festivals have the word electronic music possible?
avicci? nero? just terrible pop and awful dubstep....if you're gonna book electronic music, i wish they'd book actual talented artists. not avicii who sits there with a premix every single show.
Who do you want to see? You could also go to Electric Forest or Summer Camp. They offer more electronic acts.

From my previous experience with a Lollapalooza, it has a much, much higher number of alcoholics and drug users stumbling around than any other concert or music festival I've been too.

Haha. I am being dramatic...was supposed to be on a cruise with Sarah that weekend, but got an internship this summer and can't go anymore...what a fucking sick line up though, right? Let me know if you end up going for sure. Seriously considering a 3 day pass this time.
