    I read it as "Broken Bells" and immediately got way too giddy until I realized it wasn't Broken Bells.

    Definitely going to see Beck. I really want to see Courtney Barnett, but she's playing the same night as Dave Matthews Band, so I'll have to think on that one.

    I also really, really want to see Jethro Tull, but my wife wants no part of that. I'll have to make alternate Tull viewing plans.

    I'm actually a fan of the Shins and Danger Mouse but St Paul and the Broken bones is a much better band than Broken Bells imo. Check them out. I've had the pleasure of seeing them at a few music festivals now and they're one of my favourite current live acts.

    Overall kinda disappointed but there's a lot of acts I definitely want to go see. Too bad they're afraid of booking big hip hop acts now, nothing will ever pass Chance/Kanye for me. Pretty excited for Brockhampton though,

    I'll go on the day Courtney Barnett plays, and I don't care who is else gonna be there. In fact I only 3 or 4 other acts on that list anyway. (feels old and obsolete)

    So can someone explain the vip party zone? Double the price of a regular GA ticket and not even close to the main stage. I almost bought them till I looked at the map. Wtf....

    Picked up my general admission for the 10th...it's just expensive, 95$ for the day after fees and taxes. I can get a full 2 week pass in QC QC for the same price practically, that lineup lists on march 4th I believe, for those interested.

    Went to buy this morning and held back because of this....$100 bucks is a lot to pay to see a band for an hour or two. Prices must have gone up quite a bit as I remember it being about half of this a few years back. I also thought you could split the 3 day pass anyway you want but they have to be used on different days and not like 2 tickets to 1 day then 1 ticket to another day.

    Likely will still pick a ticket up for the 10th but will have to think about it more.

    The way they price it you're way better off splitting a pass with friends if all you wanna do is go 1-2 days.

    There's also Herbie Hancock, Alison Krauss, Bela Fleck. Pretty good line-up.

    I'm going to see Matt Mays at the Dragon Boat concert tomorrow night. I'll also be seeing Bryan Adams, Foo Fighters, and Colin James at Bluesfest this summer.
