    Sunday - Phantogram and Explosions in the Sky made the day. Explosions especially.. my heart and mind exploded and I'm still getting emotional thinking about some of those beautiful moments. Modest Mouse was a tad underwhelming, I wish they turned their sound up and worked on the EQ a bit more. Beck was also pretty damn good but I was passing out at that point so I couldn't stand in the crowd

    Selling a Sunday ticket (the 24th) and a Ferry ticket. E-mail with a price. http://longisland.craigslist.org/tix/3094768984.html

    I'd accept a ticket if somebody would want to get rid of it under a ridicoulously low price ;) I'd love to see Phantogram

    And that's why Major Lazer is one of the top producers working out there and throws good shows and like we value the opinion of a guy named Just Fetus lol.

    personally, the 23rd lineup is lame-o (kid cudi is a bore live, and major lazer is an abomination sorry), but the 24th lineup is mind blowing

    @flemieux I am, the lineup for the 23rd is so good

    I guess no one is going solely based on Jun. 23rd's amazing lineup alone ?

    You guys are ridiculous. If you don't think seeing Explosions In The Sky, Modest Mouse, and Beck back to back + a shit ton of other great acts is worth $100 then you really don't deserve to go anyway.

    Beck and Modest Mouse are playing on different stages, one right after the other -_- fuck.

    Looks like I'm gonna miss Modest Mouse (just to get a good spot for Beck) but I've seen them b4. Just happy I get to see Fiona especially after that BNM on P4k

    If you're willing to travel to festival in NYC and stupidly spend all that money, you deserve to be broke.

    Agreed, too expensive for me as well. Maybe if there were a few stages and more acts...but tickets, plus hotel money, travel expenses, food, incidentals (like drugs)...just not worth it.

    I was just mentioning that to note the lower price between the two festivals

    The important thing to note there is that All Points West only lasted two years

    this is too fucking expensive ($105 for a one day pass) for me to go. I know it makes sense where each band that I want to see would cost about $35 or so if I saw them regularly. But, there are shorter sets and whatnot, etc. I just wish it wasn't so much. All Points West was only $80 I believe in the two years of the fest back in '08 and '09

    Sure, I'm gonna miss Walk the Moon, but I'm without a doubt going the second day for Cage, Beck, and Modest Mouse.
