ACL Festival 2007

Today the lineup for this summer's ACL Festival was released and it looks pretty epic. In fact, I would say that for my personal taste, it's the best lineup ever. Going to make for a fun festival - the best thing: no beat down big billings (i.e. Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Oasis). The main big bills this year: Bjork, Arcade Fire, Wilco, The White Stripes, MMJ, Bloc Party(!), and the only beating - Bob Dylan. There are also a bunch of other standouts I saw including: Midlake, Ghostland Observatory, Blonde Redhead, Spoon, The Decemberists, Regina Spektor, Andrew Bird, Clap Your Hands, Andrew Bird, Bela Fleck, Rodrigo y Garbriela, Peter, Bjorn and John, Lucinda Williams, Asleep at the Wheel, Amy Winehouse, Amos Lee, Yo La Tengo and LCD Soundsystem. Maybe this year I will go ahead and buy tix early. Here is a link to the lineup:: ACL Festival Lineup.
There are a lot of nice options here, but I know that I will probably only check out a few of the bands - it's much better to have a good spot at three good shows than runnning around all day trying to see every band you want in each timeslot. We were talking last year about maybe setting up camp at a smaller stage and just watch a bunch of random bands all day, sounds like a good plan to me.

No, we will probably do what we do every year....drink by the pool, show up sorta late, run to 7 different stages, get drunk on $28 white wine served in a sports bottle, and eat Maudie's after w/ Mango Margs....
