    80/35 to return to Western Gateway Park!!!

    Per an email I received this morning. It will be on the eastern edge of the park, around 12th and Locust, I think. They say it should have similar capacity. 2 day passes go on sale this weekend for $60, VIP for $100.

    I'm really excited about this. There were some GREAT acts that played last year, and with the festival breaking even (which is unheard of for a first year music festival), hopefully this year is even better. I'm personally hoping for Wilco to be a headliner, I think with their new album coming out, and their midwest roots, its a perfect fit. Should be awesome.

    I think the event would do much better overall if they did it on a non-holiday weekend.

    That would be cool. Ben puts on a great live show. Ben Harper one night as headliner and Wilco another night would absolutely kick!

    Definitely some truth to that, but it sounds like last year was pushing the capacity of the area/infrastructure, etc. They also have to work it around a lot of the other festivals out there.

    I actually work in a building on 12th and Locust. So basically I think it's around 13th and locust. Right across the street from Ford and Garland audio.

    Pull up tour dates of bands you like, see who is in the area and maybe they are in. At least send suggestions to the music coalition...

    Re: 80/35 to return to Western Gateway Park!!!

    When are they going to release the schedule?

    I think Miley Cyrus should headline

    But seriously, shouldn't we be finding out who's playing soon?

    Next couple of weeks according to the email. Drive-By Truckers are not scheduled anywhere during that time period . They aren't big enough to headline, but they put on one hell of a set last year...

    yeah, wilco would've been perfect for the venue and vice versa. i'd like to see the black keys here. they could both bring in people and make converts of those who haven't seen/heard them before.
