I am really looking forward to seeing the Sweetback Sisters, Winterpills (saw them do an short acoustic set at an art opening here in NoHo in February) Rubblebucket, The whole Guthrie clan, and well, lots of the other names up there, too!
Oh, also really looking forward to seeing some boardies - woot, woot!

Thanks for the tips of who to see, folks - I'll be sure to check 'em out!
This will be easy - there's only one stage.
It's also billed as an alcohol free event, but they didn't check coolers and even the oldold people had their wine bottles.
Just put everything in cups, keep it on the dl and you'll be fine.

BRING CHAIRS! everyone else does so you will want to be on the same level might as well bring high ones too, otherwise you wont see anything
any kind of smallish sunshade thing or umbrella (again, everyone else will have, so you might as well, too) blanket to hold a whole spot. its kinda like a fourth of july experience rather than a regular day concert thing. you really have to grab a spot and just stay there, it packs in (but the space is endless so they dont run out of space)
im trying to find our pics......

Their webiste says "Times and stages info to come" - maybe they are adding another stage this year? Fine by me if they don't easier to catch it all if there is only one stage going on!
I'm hoping to take a ride in a balloon if I have the cash to do so. Next year if not this - I've always wanted to try going up in a balloon.

Guess I am flying solo on this one...
Anyone else wanna go up in a balloon with me? Well, first let me see how much it costs and whether or not I can make it happen this year. I'm still playing catch-up at the moment.

Three stages of music — the main stage, the dance tent (a fiesta for your feet!) and the River's Meltdown Kids' Stage — so there's something for everyone! Check the schedule page to find out when and where your favorite band is playing.
