It may price people out, but realistically it is $80 a day for a lot of bands you would easily pay $20-30 to see locally...if they come around. If you see 5 bands a day (easily done) you are getting your money's worth. Plus there are bands that hardly ever play on the festival, and the weather is fantastic.
well its more like $150 (the ticket alone is $350, so add parking per day too). That's a LOT of money. I wouldn't pay $150 to see Vampire weekend or the postal service. I dont see anyone on this lineup that's a 'one time only' or a 'rarity'. It's a nice lineup of the same bands i see at every festival of this nature.... and your banking on good weather? I mean sure lol...but weather is free man.
