    Pretty awesome lineup for a first time fest. Really wish I still lived in MD for this one.

  • Damn, the early-bird tix went fast. They went on sale Friday at noon and by 2:30 were gone. Even @ $200 though, to me its still a steal considering all the bands you get to see over 3days. How much are EV tix averaging? Its a cool lineup to. So siked for this, especially since I've never seen any of the headliners before. So glad they're handling tix themselves and cutting tix master right out of the equation.. ;)

    yeah "a friend" ( ;) ) texted me that early bird tix sold in 20 mins. Luckily she got hers. I'm still waiting/hoping for single day passes. Also waiting to see who plays what day and so forth.

    My boss told me about this Friday. I'm seriously considering it - especially since I only live 1 hour away. We don't get much good stuff in Delaware and I hope this can become an annual thing.

    I was thinking about going but I only heard about it yesterday and it seems like every hotel in Dover is already full for the weekend and I'm not about to drive 3 hours each way for 3 days or spend $200 plus fees to go to one day and see the Killers when I can catch them on their next tour for a full show instead of a shortened festival set. There are some other bands I'd like to check out, but not enough to spend that much to maybe see them if they're playing Saturday. I hope this festival is successful enough to keep it going into the future and keep getting good acts. Maybe next year I'll find out about it sooner and actually go.

    This looks like such a great line up. Right up my alley. Too bad I already have plans and spent my money elsewhere....bummer.
    Thank you fellow 10 clubber for saving my ass....again!!!
  • SuziemaySuziemay Posts: 11,146
    That line-up's pretty kick-ass. Too bad it's not local for me.. can't afford to travel to yet another show even if it's domestic travel :D
  • BettrMan21BettrMan21 Chattanooga,TnPosts: 188
    J Roddy Walston & the Business will be there as well. They are not to be missed if you haven't had the pleasure.
  • samjamsamjam New YorkPosts: 9,280
    Such a terrific line-up, especially for a first time festival. Wish I had the funds to go!

    Well i was hoping for single day passes, but so far nothing. So i decdied to spend the $200 for the 3 day thing before they raised prices even more after Wednesday :roll: Should have just tried for the early bird special earlier :fp:

    Maybe the tickets will come separately for each day and you can sell the day you don't want to go. In any case, that's a killer line-up, you won't be disappointed :mrgreen:

    Hmm, if it's two wristbands you're golden. If not, guess you'll just have to have a kickass time both days :mrgreen:
  • eeriepadaveeeriepadave West Chester, PAPosts: 29,489
    Was thinking of just driving down there for each day, According to google maps it's only about 1 1/2 hours-2 hours away. This is obviously without traffic which is gonna be a nightmare though. Still might be cheaper than getting a hotel or camping there :think:

    I really like the lineup. Now if they would just add PJ I'd be there!

    Hey, look, it's Tinie Tempah :lol: :lol: I can't say that without giggling. He was featured in the Isle of Wight footage on Palladia.

    Tinie Tempaahhhhhh :lol: :lol: :lol:

    What's wrong with Delaware??? I live on the outskirts of Wilmington and my uncle lives in NEwark. Seems like a nice state. Plus tax free shopping ;)
