2017 Music Festival Thread

10 posts in this topic

Coachella (11am pst) and BottleRock (10am pst) passes both go on sale this morning, so it's officially music festival season time again.

BottleRock lineup looks awesome and Coachella looks hilariously awful. 

Boneroo says they will be announcing their lineup on Jan 11.

Thanks for starting this. I am very fascinated by Coachella booking Hans Zimmer.

I don't know that I'll do any major festivals this year, but I do have my eyes on maybe a night of Jazz Fest, Sweetwater 420 Fest, and Shaky Knees.

Bonnaroo's headliners will pretty much be U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Weeknd. I'm not sure who is the 4th person on that top line.

I would be shocked if Tool isn't at Bonnaroo.

Is this the first year that Coachella has done the two-weekend format like ACL? 

I have no idea what Hans Zimmer will do that a festival audience would want to see.

Coachella has been going two weekends since 2012, I believe.

Kendrick, Lorde and New Order would be fun.

No different than any other instrumental band that would perform at a festival, really. Except this is more epic.

Hans Zimmer at Roo would sell me on going to Roo just because it would be something unique and different. As @Casey said, instrumental bands are nothing new to festivals. Hell, I'm a huge Explosions in the Sky fan, but to hear one of the better modern day composers play select pieces in front of a bunch of wooks would be a sight to behold.

Bonnaroo's line-up. It's okay, I guess. No Tool or NIN makes me sad.

I was just coming here to post this. I surprisingly don't hate that thing, and I fully expected to do so.
