Is anyone going to any festivals this year? I definitely want to go to one with my mates before we all go off to different colleges. V Fest lineup was just released and it looks pretty poor in my opinion. T in the Park looks great but it's way too far from me. Wakestock looks promising and Bonaroo looks amazing!

What have your experiences with festivals been? Going to any this year?

I'd like to go to the Soundwave music festival if that counts.
Some good sh*t is playing there.

I usually manage to attend Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza every year.
they make for an easy weekend-long road trip since they're usually held in cities around the Midwest.

I avoid SXSW like the plague, but I'll be hitting ACL full force.

Can't wait for this summer. I'm doing some easy volunteer work for Electric Forest this year, they're expanding by a huge amount so I'm clearing some paths and picking up sticks for a free ticket. The initial lineup that got announced is decent but I'm really hoping for Sound Tribe.

Also, String Cheese's last year! What a bummer.

Hopefully making Bonnaroo, Summercamp, EDC, and Allgood this year as well though.

Did Download last year, way too muddy and unhygienic for my liking (I don't mind camping but when people are too drunk and lazy to not piss on your tent I don't exactly enjoy it). Bands were excellent though. Metallica, Black Sabbath and The Prodigy were the headliners.

May be doing Tribfest this year. Tribute acts, friendly atmosphere, cheap festival. More money for beer.

I've been to Leeds festival three times (2010/11/12) loved every second of it. However this year there isn't anything playing at any of them that I want to see, I would possibly go to Download but I've heard from friends that the actual camping/site is pretty awful. Couldn't bear going to T in the Park/V not my sort of music at all.

I used to partake in the Philadelphia Folk Festival every year from 1974-some time in the early 90s. I got to casually see people like Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, and a bunch of other important music people.

I spent a few years of my life living in a Honda Civic traveling back and forth across the states as part of the Grateful Dead tour. I jumped off tour in the later 80s and have been trying to assimilate back into normal society ever since.
