Didn't see the final lineup poster in the thread, so I thought I'd throw it up. Not the best they've put together, but I think it's solid overall. There are a bunch of names toward the bottom I'm looking forward to seeing like Com Truise, Savoy, Minnesota, Maya Janes Coles, and Thundercat.
Knife Party could be the highlight of the weekend.

After shows are up... nothing really grabs my interest here. Probably going to do GT, since my brother has never seen him and we are going to be hanging at Umphrey's on Saturday. Then maybe the Umph after show...

I'm pretty sure they did last year. I remember drinks were based off a ticket system. So stand in line, buy a ticket, then stand in another line and buy drinks so I would imagine the food system works the same. Not sure the deal for volunteers though.

It was the only festival he didn't play last year. Now the circle is complete.
So very true!
Looks like I'm heading back to Chicago for this fest. Every year I go and bitch about how stupid the crowd is and say I will never go back, then the headliners just suck me right back in the next year.

I've been to all three North Coast Festivals, and I haven't had a bad time at any of them. It's the same park where they hold Pitchfork, and they set up the stages the same way. The crowd tends to be younger, but I've never had any issues with anyone at the festival, the same goes with security.

Does anyone have experience with VIP for this fest? It seems like a pretty good deal to me but I've never been. My main concern is that the VIP viewing areas would suffer from sound bleed being between the two stages. Or do they alternate the music on these two stages so it's a nonissue?
