I wish this festival would go away.  I would much rather see full shows by the few bands that interest me each year but because of this stupid thing, those bands count this fest as their DC area tour stop.  It wouldn't be so bad if it stayed in September but whoever decided to move this to the first weekend of August with the heat we get in this area that time of year is an asshole.  Please just get rid of this fest!

Aren't we getting to the point where this festival in the usual August slot is unlikely?  Summer festival lineups are starting to show up, and this festy doesn't have a date yet.

I was strange that the sky blackened and then the rain started to fall as the first notes of Interpol started to play.  Very fitting. Also it was not crowded at all during their set, which is weird for that stage, and added to the atmosphere. 

Got Haggis?

I just hope its an interesting lineup.  I wish it would do something to make it stand out a bit from other festivals of its size.  Got a chance to see Lollapalooza last year and by the time I got back here, VFest looked a bit dull.  But I'd rather have a festival that has on-years and off-years than none at all.  Weren't both years underachievers in terms of attendance?  I've had my worries. I know the second one had a lot of people, but still no sellouts.

Interpol in the rainy, gloomy main stage set is probably my most memorable Virgin Fest moment. It was perfect, unlike BRMC at noon.

someone posted in one of the threads here that there was a rumor that v-fest will be in NY instead of Baltimore this year.....who knows if there is any truth to it, sure hope not.


lets not start any stupid rumours that have NO basis. its definitely not moving to NYC, not in 2009 anyway.

it's be nice if the festival was in September, August is always a terrible month for me and with the other fests at that time. Lolla, All Points West - I'd much prefer September.

As for last year's Fest, the only band I had hoped to see a full concert from was Soulwax - I'd kill to see them live.

Sorry to bump this thread with no news to report. It's mid-March and this festival may be the quietest of all. No dates. No rumors. No big discussions like Coachella, Bonnaroo, or Lollapalooza have. So why not get the hype going again with our annual V-Fest wishlist?

Obviously all the headliners would be booked by now, so there's no reason to list big name acts. But we can make educated guesses about mid-tier or opening bands based on who will be touring and who's playing the festival circuit this year.

Anyone up for it?

(Last year's headliners were announced April 1, so we can't be too far away.)

The latest I have heard is that it will be back at least one more year although a few months ago this was not definite.  The question had something to do with Pimlico I believe.   

 One of the headliners will most likely be a recently or soon to be reunited group.  I have no clue as to who that would be but the person who mentioned this to me said they were waiting at the time to see if a couple groups would really get back together/waiting on their plans.

If only there was a web site dedicated solely to rumors about the V fest - that would be dope.

yeah the owners of Pimlico are bankrupt and I believe there was threat of it closing. However: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/local/bal-te.md.preakness20mar20,0,2853903.story
