PRESALE AND SALE ENDED... I think

to the People that didn't get their tickets:

I'm sorry that everyone did not get what they wanted. But I bet you can pick up tickets for at around $20 at stubhub, craigslist, ticketking, ebay, etc.. easily. Plus a few hours before the show, there are scalpers hanging around the paviliion, which you can buy from for cheap, I hope, otherwise no one would buy them. It's so sad that it is sold out after 3 minutes, because of the nature of the scalpers. I went to stubhub, and saw a seller who had 50 (FIFTY) tickets to sell at $99.00 each, that is just disgusting. The whole nature of scalping is just plain disgusting, and ruins for the fun for everyone. One person was selling 7 tickets at $700.00 each! Of course no one is going to buy the 700 tickets, because it's not even worth $700 haha to go to the concert.


ENJOY!





Post yours!

How many different Vfest prediction/wishlist threads will there be?

But since you designated this one as "official," I guess this is the only one we need.

I'd like to see Blur, Jarvis Cocker, SFA (although the festival would probably have to be in September for this to happen).

The only artists I can think of that would instantly sell me on a festival right now are SFA and Prince.  SFA seem to be putting off a US tour, and Prince would not lower himself to playing a small Vfest.

I searched prior to making this thread, and I found nothing about 2009 predictions (I believe), so I want to make this one official, so others will see that they don't have to make another one

Every thread relating to virgin mobile, is dated back in 2008...

So here it is!

Not that I'm really expecting it this year but seems that every major music festival in the area in the past 6 years or so includes BRMC. They always seem to be their fence sitter magnet card sometimes pulled out of the organizers pocket at the last minute. Whenever the hardcore fence sitters see BRMC on the bill, it pulls them right into the festival yard.

Haven't looked at their tour schedule so have no idea how feasible this might be.

i'd prefer they do a club date than play the festival. but your right, if i see them on the bill i'll def go. they may be available, they dont have tour dates listed yet

Cali, you made me laugh. I'm telling you, they work like a charm! At least in this area.

Someone else mentioned Animal Collective. They too are a good bet especially since they are local and have been the darlings of the Indie set this year. Personally, I can take them or leave them but I would love for them to be on the bill. Partly just to show some support to the local scene but also there is some beauty to them playing MPP with their hit LP being named MPP. Kind of a nice little mutual back scratching between IMP and the band. The backlashers can use their set as their dinner, bathroom, fun, whatever break.
