So far Amadou & Miriam are at the top of my list. Haven't seen Neko Case in a while either. I really like the Killer Mike album but live hip-hop is so hit and miss that I'm not getting my hopes up.

Finally get to tick BB King and Eric Burdon off my bucket list. Glad to finally make up for missing Los Lobos. Caught a little bit of Neko Case but wasn't feeling well so glad I can finally see a full set. Looking forward to Grand Funk, JSBX, Zac Brown, She & Him and even Dixie Chicks. Have seen Rush, Stars and Blue King Brown before, looking forward to seeing them again. This might even be the year I actually go to Great Big Sea.

Paper tickets for an extra $55. Worth it, if not planning to go every day?

But I thought the bracelets were about cutting edge tech and convenience not limiting ticket resales. I guess that dreaded "Black Market" that the Citizen had us trembling in fear of and that needed to be stopped is now more than okay, as long as the fans pay an extra fifty five.

Oh Bluesfest, you're so crazy. Never change.

That has irked me in an way I can't describe.

(thanks for the info Alan)

Black Sabbath would make it for me. Im probably sucking it up and getting paper tickets anyway but Sabbath would do it. De La Soul was tons of fun last time we saw them.

Fingers crossed, expect my scorn when this doesn't come through.
