pretty awesome lineup, but the ordering of it is so weird. the walkmen are buried on this.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 1:37 PM

thanks 1:20, I wasn't aware where he was from.

i have never attended, but this festival consistently has an awesome lineup. plus, montreal fucking rules.

Montreal would be the bomb. Were it not for Canadians.

We're Canada. Not quite French, not quite American. Good beer, shitty weather.

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 1:53 PM

this lineup looks pretty sweet.

montreal = brooklyn + really cheap rent + cheap weed + free healthcare + hotter girls + awful/freezing weather.

^^ 1:53 - Sorry pal, but the beer coming out of the US is MUCH superior to that of Canada. Although Canada definitely does have some great breweries.

ps - you're not funny

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 1:57 PM

you can touch the girls in montreal, too

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 2:04 PM

2:08 - please eleborate. Are you saying that Canadian beer is better than US beer? If so, you are a TOTAL F--KING IDIOT!!!!!!!!

Posted by Anonymous | May 16, 2012 2:13 PM

Damn Passion Pit is such a minor player on festival line ups but headlining Governor's ball

Posted by Anonymous | May 17, 2012 6:24 AM

2:22 did you read how that list was calculated, worthless.

^ don't waste the electrons, 10:42. 2:24 is a total faggot loser. As a total faggot loser, he cannot hear you over the din of the voices inside his head. You are better off talking logic to a tree stump.

Maybe it's best this way since the band/frontman doesn't care about North America any more. It's all about the Latin American countries now.
