Wow--I can't believe there are 12 more goodies to delight! Bravo on a great line up.

eux autres! Oh, man, now I have to decide where I'm gonna blow my kid's college fund--too many great pop shows happening this spring/summer!
Tried any good cereal lately?

also to answer crystalball's post above. 65 is nothing. if we could figure out how to book more bands we would. it's actually really hard to only book 65 especially when there are so many great bands out there. the popfest kinda has two camps in a way, one that wants to keep the festival about this size, and another that would like to see if grow more into a cmj or sxsw. i mainly want to see if maintain the formula of a few headliners, strong support of co-headliner, a few premium national acts, good regional bands, and at least a quarter to a third of our homegrown athens talent. i never want it to be like a cochella or bonnaroo where it's nothing but buzz bands or established acts and hipster flavor of the month acts. i like the fact some folks will know the headliners and come to it, but go away seeing lots of great up and coming bands that haven't broke yet.

HOLY SHIT. mike, you really have outdone yourself already with this line up. i'm going to have to sell some organs to buy that £700 flight now. how much do you reckon i could get for a mistreated liver?

You think it's mistreated now, just wait to till I force Wild Turkey shots on you. The Turkey is mighty cheap at the 40 Watt.
