A few good bands, but I hate it when headlining-capable bands get short sets. That's why I never go to festivals. There are only 5 bands on there that I would possibly be interested seeing:

They Might Be Giants - See them headline every time they come to town

Billy Idol - seeing him headline later this month

Garbage - Seen them before and if the new album is as shitty as the last, I have no interest in seeing them again

Coldplay - Never seen, hopefully will on their next tour

Foo Fighters - Saw them on their last tour, it was OK but if I never see them again I will not really care much.

So this festival does not really offer much for me.

How is there an HFSetival without an HFS?

Quite an eclectic mix there, but I'd never give my hard earned money to SUM 41 or Good Charlotte.

I agree, however I'm still going... Is there going to be a Dance Tent/stage (like they have done in the past)?

In my ideal world here's how I'd do the lineup

Main Stage:

  • Coldplay (headliner) (9:15pm 75min set)
  • Foo Fighters (8:35pm 60min)
  • Garbage (7:20pm -60min)
  • Billy Idol (6:15pm -45min)
  • The New York Dolls (5:15pm -45min)
  • Echo and The Bunnymen (4:20pm -45min)
  • They Might Be Giants (3:15pm -45min)
  • SUM 41 (2:10pm -45min)
  • Jimmie's Chicken Shack (1pm -45min)

    Second Stage:
  • Interpol (8:30pm -80min)
  • Social Distortion (7:15pm -60min)
  • The Bravery (6:15pm -45min)
  • Stereophonics (5:10pm -45min)
  • Citizen Cope (4:10pm - 45min)
  • Good Charlotte (3pm -45min)
  • Louis XIV (2pm -30min)
  • Unwritten Law (1:15pm 30min)

    Dance Tent:
  • The Streets
  • LCD Soundsystem
  • Miss Kitten
  • Plump DJs

    The few bands on the bill I like I'd rather just see headline their own shows.

    Knocked out of the ballpark, HFStival heads to Baltimore
    Tim Lemke
    Staff Reporter
    The HFStival will be back again this year, but like its namesake radio station, it will no longer call Washington home.
    The alternative rock concert, previously held at RFK Memorial Stadium, will be held at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium on May 14, according to tour-date information posted on Web sites of participating bands.
    This year's invited bands are said to include Unwritten Law, Social Distortion, NY Dolls, Sum 41, Bravery, Interpol, Muse, Garbage and Billy Idol.
    The future of the HFStival was put in question after its chief organizer, WHFS (99.1 FM), suddenly switched to an all-Spanish music format in January. WHFS recently found a new home at 105.7 FM in Baltimore, which has a talk-radio format during the day and plays alternative rock at night and on the weekends.
    The station says it will announce full details of the festival on March 28.
    The HFStival has routinely lured more than 50,000 attendees each year, but for what it's worth, RFK won't be sitting silent while rock fans travel north. D.C.'s newest stadium-crowd please, the Nationals, will be hosting the Chicago Cubs on May 14.

    This is how it's been in the past.

    You don't have to get there early at all. You can get pretty close basically any time you want.

    Is the tickets for this selling well? I went over last Saturday to the Friendship Heights Hechts and I was second in line at 12 noon.

    got two General Admission tickets, no problem, are all the seats 65 dollars?

    No. I'd love to see Coldplay and Foo Fighters, but I'll wait for their tours when they'll play longer sets and I don't have sit through the other crap.

    Plus I hate stadiums shows, prefer clubs or pavillions.

    according to the hfs website, the club seats were sold out. i guess if you do the ticketmaster route, ga tix will end up costing more then if you went to the stadium.
    and where at Hechts (your talking about the department store right?) can you purchase tix?
    josh, whats so bad about stadiums, (other then all the people.)

    Wait a minute...The New York Dolls? The New York Dolls!?! Is this the original (surviving) members? They'd all have to be about 60 by now. Will they be in drag? What's going on here? Is there a new band by that name?

    Too many people and traffic mainly, and the bad seats are much worse (further away) than the worst "seats" in a club or pavillion.

    anyone else going to this?
    the website has posted set times

    what is a good time to get to the stadium if you wanted to be in the pit close to the stage?

    From my experience at festivals, you can probably show up a couple hours before the first big band (probably Good Charlotte in this case) and get right up front.

    People come and go during the early bands.

    I'd say Interpol and Garbage are just as big (for HFS listeners at least).

    There's just too many lukewarm bands for me to want to go.
