I've been to LV at least two dozen times in the last six or seven years for mostly smaller fests. The good news, as compared to Marvin's Mountaintop, is the traffic on the way in shouldn't be horrendous. LV is located directly off Interstate 70, so there's no smallish back roads to deal with. The bad news is the place isn't anywhere near as big as Marvin's Mountaintop, from what I've seen - and I saw the Grateful Dead there in 1993. I don't know how they are going to arrange the camping, unless the open up nearby land. It's also a nice setting, but nowhere near as nice as Marvin's Mountaintop.

These are the same dates as Vibes next year. I have older friends that went to all the Grateful Dead shows here.........Buckeye Lake was home to "the ultimate shakedown" as it's been put. This venue/city is very open to the types of weirdos that will come to this festival, and it's right off the interstate so it won't be as much of a bitch as Marvin's Mountaintop. No way in hell am I missing this, this fest is gonna be a mega rager for the history books. I'm gonna go ahead and call Furthur and Allman's for the headliners.

I'm definitely a lot more open to this change versus the change to VA. One, obviously because it's closer (7.25 hrs) than even the mountain top is; and two, this location is MUCH more accepting of these types of events. When I was reading about how they had to get a continuous music rule changed in order for the fest to be allowed at the VA site it already sounded like that community didn't want this event. And that made it sound like it could lead to the same type of tumultuous relation AG had with Masontown.
I bet it's going to be a lot hotter in OH in July than it was on the mountaintop.
Everyone experiences music differently.To say that something is subjectively wrong with live music is to also say that you are more than just your credentials or experience. It says that you are above whatever it is that you see as being the standard. Breaking everything down critically to the point where you are above every matter looking down on it only isolates you and makes you look foolish.

They hold Hookahville at LV twice a year, and security usually is a private provider/local sheriff's deputies split. It used to be a free for all several years back, but things toned down after a few incidents. Yonder's tour bus did get pulled over on the way into Hookahville one year. I was there and saw the thing go down; we heard about it and walked up to the field overlooking the back road and watched. With the numbers AG draws, they aren't going to be able to do that so much because of the impact it would have on traffic on Interstate 70.

I'm honestly not sure if there's a centralized location, like here, where people talk about lineup rumors, etc. I will say I've heard people talking about the Allman Brothers being a possibility, and I live here in central Ohio. That would make sense. I will post on here if I hear anything else.

Yeah, I'm two hours and 15 minutes away max. My RV dealer is going to cut me a deal if I get another one this year for AG. I've rented from her the last 4 yrs. All Good was going to be our call before the move, but the Roo bug is hitting again. As long as there's a good lineup, I think we're doing both fests.

An RV will be nice for AG because, as Huzzah said, it's going to be hot as Hades unless we get really, really lucky and there's some kind of cooling trend that week. There also might not be a lot of shaded camping opportunities, but there wasn't at Marvin's anyway.
