I actually don't mind JCS.  They're definitely one of the lesser evils in the lineup. [/b]
but where do they play?  what's their fanbase?  i feel like they get dragged out every year for these festivals but i never see them on the bills of clubs around here [/b]
jimi haha's "day job" is his band called the jarflys, i only know this because i know his guitar player who  moonlights in a number of bands... i suspect jcs reunites to pay the rent

Way to expensive!
 You'd think the show costs would be tremendously lower without renting and paying for all the vendors for a stadium and that would translate into a decent price.  
 I would've been shocked at a two-day pass that would be $100 but I would've paid it.  But 146.00 or 216.00 pre svc chrgs is not fun.

Well you did mention something about attending a C&W festival in Chicago...

do you think they play Kanye, Matisyahu and Atmosphere on HFS?   I bet they havent played Counting Crows in a while either. and i cant think of the last time i heard a Misfits song on the radio...if ever!
 
 i heard atmosphere on hfs one time, about 2 years ago, and i was the one who requested it.
 
 
 is this lineup really representative to what they play on that station?  Joan Jett? [/b]

Doubtful, but Joan Jett IS from the area.  So that's probably how she gets away with being asked to/playing that...

Wow, expensive tickets for a lineup that seems lacking to me.  I'm bummed because I'd like to see Merriweather kick ass and take no prisoners all summer.
 
 Though it's no better than the Cook-off in my estimation, at least the cookoff is only $30.

I think Joan Jett is on warped so she is probably on this because of that.

PS the Chili Cookoff lineup is TERRIBLE.  At least HFStival has, like, three redeeming bands...
 
 Actually, I'd love to go and see Ok Go, The Strokes, and Joan Jett.  But I'd rather not pay that much to see any of these bands, when I can just see OK Go at the Black Cat, or wait and see Joan at Warped Tour.  The Strokes I'm impartial about, don't want to see 'em really anywhere other than a club (if that ever happens).  So I'd just rather not fuss with drunk, horny frat guys.

Just drive the extra hour to philly and go to jam on the river instead. $30 for secret machines and Ween beats $100 for counting crows and a bunch of other bands that will be forgotten in a matter of months.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but the Warped tour actually looks better than the HFStival this year.  Ugh.
 
 Is Joan definitely playing the Warped tour here?  Pollstar doesn't show her playing any Warped dates, although I've seen press stating she'll be there.  I know there are other bands on that tour only playing "selected dates" (like The Germs and The Buzzcocks).  I'm wondering if she's playing everywhere.

Agreed.  Warped tour usually is good about letting people know who is playing what date, but they don't have any indicators on the site.  I definitely want to see Joan Jett and The Buzzcocks, but if neither are playing here, it's probably not worth it for me.  Again though, because Joan is from this area, I would assume that at least she would be playing the Maryland shows.

so i guess the secret machines are no longer refusing to play outdoors shows because it "compromises their ambience"

Joan Jett apparently is playing the entire tour, not select dates.
