there are always two things that are guaranteed every year in the summer: heat and music festivals. sasquatch just announced their FOUR day (yeah, seriously) lineup for may 24-27. tickets here and full lineup here.
after a bunch of hullabaloo on twitter last night about the headliners (myself included), the fact remains that coachella is one of the biggest and most successful festivals. clearly, since this is the 2nd year the crew will be hosting repeat festivals on back to back weekends.
more ticket information here if you plan on hitting indio, california in april.
get the lube out, ya’ll. fun fun fun fest just ‘unleashed the beast’ of their 2012 lineup, and it’s a doozy. first off, REFUSED ARE NOT FUCKING DEAD. then somewhere along the lines, god damn de la soul, there’s a run dmc reunion, against me!, turbonegro, converge, hannibal burress, a shit ton of other awesome bands, some good rappers, great comedians and much more.

2012′s coachella is a behemoth of a music festival. while i initially thought that the festival would split the acts among two weekends, there will in fact be two identical weekends of coachella back to back in indio. some of the notables are: refused (reunion), at the drive-in (reunion), radiohead, the weeknd, dre & snoop, and a bunch of other shit you’re bound to like. peep the flyer and hit the official site for more details on tickets, pricing, etc.

with austin’s always lovely fun fun fun fest lineup revealed, everyone’s shittin’ their pants in anticipation. for the first time in its residency, it will:
a. be 3 days long, as opposed to 2
b. be hosted by the auditorium shores, as opposed to the dogshit waterloo park
c. have slayer playing
sunbear and i will probably be there, passed out in the grassy knoll from smuggling in vodka and roofies (for each other, obviously) in water bottles.
