Is Pitchfork not having a festival in Chicago this year since it's having an ATP thing?

I went to the first Siren Fest.  It sure does get crowded there.  Do you think they'll still have it since Coney Island was sold?

probably not, but the bands they book for siren fest are usually the types of bands that would comprise the side stage acts of these festivals.  which makes me wonder how much they can (SHOULD) charge for an upcoming new york festival.  because, when it all boils down, we are all just a bunch of poor new yorkers...

Coachella Going East
 Thursday, Jan 17, 2008 5:15AM
 source: www.pollstar.com
 
 C3 Presents and Festival Republic's Vineland won't be the only new East Coast festival this summer, according to sources who say Coachella producers AEG/Goldenvoice are staging one of their own - scheduled for the same weekend as Vineland.
 
  The new festival is tentatively scheduled for August 8-10 at the Liberty State Park in Jersey City, N.J., "according to people briefed on the plans," the New York Times reported. Also not too far away will be the I.M.P.-promoted V Fest in Baltimore, also tentatively scheduled for that same weekend, according to Seth Hurwitz.
 
  Rumor has it that 80-100 bands are expected to participate, with Radiohead and Jack Johnson as possible headliners.
 
  The Vineland Music Festival will debut in Vineland, N.J., about halfway between Philadelphia and Atlantic City, N.J.
 
  Representatives for AEG and Paul Tollett, the co-creator of Coachella, both referred phone calls to their publicist, Mitch Schneider Organization. Asked to confirm the festival's existence, MSO's Marcee Rondan told Pollstar January 15th, "I have no information to report."
 
  A lineup hasn't been announced for the rumored festival or Vineland Music Festival. An official announcement regarding the East Coast version of Coachella is expected early next week, according to the Newark Star-Ledger.
 
  This year's Coachella festival will be held April 25-27 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, Calif. General admission tickets will go on sale through Ticketmaster retail centers, online or charge by phone.
 
  According to the Los Angeles Times, the lineup for the three-day festival is expected to be announced next week and a surprising veteran act or two - but not David Bowie - might top the list.

So, there are three east coast festivals this summer -- and they are all scheduled for the same weekend?

so a musical festival appears to be a huge headliner slumming it for a cozy paycheck, plus whatever other  bands happen to be destroying the ozone layer in their motorcoaches at the time..  that said if vfest were to provide a cost effective way to see Led Zep, i'd strongly consider it...

you got me wondering: what if these three festivals book the same headliners, so for example radiohead headlines vfest one night and "coachella east" the next?  in essence, the festivals would lose their identities and become the three regional manifestations of "east coast super-fest 2008".  no need to travel!

Well, they sort of do this with the Reading/Leeds festival in England. Like, X band headlines Reading Friday night and Leeds Saturday and Y band does vice versa.  That could be arranged couldn't it?  Reading/Leeds = Baltimore/NYC?
 
 You know, I've never met the man and couldn't pick him out of a lineup but I always feel sorry for Seth.  He works REALLY hard and it seems to me he encounters a lot of headaches.

 Appreciate the thoughts though
