  • Or maybe you just got deja vu? Because this is a lot like Coachella. I'm not saying that's good, and I'm not saying that's bad. But I am saying that the festival you pick is more or less down to whether you'd rather see Eminem and Florence and the Machine or Kanye West and Kings of Leon

    Frankly, it makes little difference to me because I know for a fact I cannot go to either.  Stupid facts....they think they're so smart... I'm hoping Osheaga will make it up to me. Fingers crossed.

    Bonneroo tickets go on sale this Saturday

    Oh, and Loretta Lynn?  Huh?

    1. Nor will they host Empire of the Sun.
      Why are they only going to Coachella?
