I would cut my own dick off to get to this festival. Honest to god.

PhishLover July 1, 2014, 10:36:19

In that case, Dave, you can have my ticket.

I have to agree with my clone. That is one hell of a lineup.

Why is Umphreys not headlining? This is crap. A bunch of washed up has been acts and even that Colorado drug band that Umphreys surpassed a decade ago steal the best spots from Umphreys. I am going with my UM crew and band guys but this is a pathetic kick down to these old man bands. The new album just came out. Band Management is readying to announce it going Platinum and the biggest best band plays before some old druggies and drunks. I can’t wait to be swinging my UM swag so hard that everyone wants to just see them. The scene has been so hype and sexy since UMbowl. It’s like we are going to have to teach the entire Lockn crowd about guitar playing and throwing down in 2014 with all the freaks. I can’t friggin wait until arenas and stadiums next year so UM and us close to the guys don’t deal with this type of low level festival stuff anymore. Pull that puppet string yo!

It’s really saying something because I’ve been abusing my genitals like crazy last couple days.

Sorry UMphan, Umphries has not surpassed the Colorado Drug bands or as you call it washed up bands. Umphries doesn’t have as many fans as you want them to have. They do have a good following and will bring out a crowd. They are good dont get me wrong, but if you think they are bigger than panic or cheese then you are living in a dream world.

UM Fan Here July 1, 2014, 11:57:30

I’m a huge Umphrey’s fan, travel the country to see them more than any other band that I follow. But to act like they are above Panic, Cheese and the Dead at this point is just not true. Please tell me the last time you saw Bobby or Phil at a festival that they were not headlining? Throw in that this is the only Furthur show of the year, and it’s easy to see why they have the times they do. My only hope is that UM at least gets a show after dark, don’t want Waful to go to waste. Also worth mentioning that Joel said on twitter just this week that the times have not been set in stone yet.

It’s an old man fest. you don’t have to dig it, but that’s where it’s at!

Dave: The whole thing will be Webcast I am fairly sure. Sit back at home and enjoy the festival for much less money and hassel

UmPhan=idiot troll. Saw UM at a “daytime” slot at Wanee a few years ago and it was fantastic, as is this entire lineup. Wish I could go. Love TTB but Derek and Susan acoustic sounds very cool as does String Cheese & The Gang. Get Down On It!
