1:55, totally agree! I live in Philly and I watch this lineup decrease in value every single year. 2009 had Public Enemy and Black Keys. 2013 has Grimes. Sad

this festival is like $40 for early tickets. why are people hating on this? if you like the roots then go and see a bunch of other bands as well. if not then don't.

How is the hummus in Philly? I was thinking about attending. Should I pack a lunch from Mamouns or is there something decent down there?

^meh. It's ok, but not of the quality one can find in Williamsburg.

Buy from ebay, the worlds largest and most trusted auction site. Pay with paypal and eliminate any security issues with your credit card.
