How many festivals do we need in US? When I was growing up in early 2000s, I only went to Warped Tour and Skate & Surf Festival!

Festival Models are easy to replicate; and come with higher and better profits. Also, you just throw the word "Fest" after something and it becomes a commodity and is given a "faux legacy"

I've been to a few festivals--most are forgettable and you leave feeling you saw 1/3 of what you wanted to.

It's not a festival without Outkast. Amirite??

Why would anyone reading BrooklynVegan have any interest in this?

Warped Tour travels, so in that regard it was really like 20 festivals with the same lineup, which basically seems to be what is happening now.

Festivals are fun because it's socially acceptable to start drinking at like 10 am, and there's always something going on, but they usually aren't worth the money. I went to lollapalooza in 2007 and they had re-entry, so we were able to leave during a lull and go back in.

Hey 11:25. When my parents were growing up the vocals from a concert would be played over the gym PA, so you couldn't hear them over the guitars. Things change, there are more festivals now, and they all have Outkast.

11:37, I was thinking that very thing when I saw Hangout's lineup. And the comments section was full of "awesome" and "now that's what I'm talking about." I'll take this one in the day time. Then, try to find some diversity at night. It is Atlanta, after all.

Awesome festival indeed, there is nothing wrong in using awesome.

Sorry, I was too busy watching the show. For just the one song, I shut up and stood still long enough to shoot (unlike, obviously, everyone else in the audience singing along -- including loud-drunk-and-tuneless to my left).
