Langerado organizers not sure what "headliner" means

Langerado organizers not sure what "headliner" means

It's no secret that the gluttony of festivals in America has led to something of a headliner shortage (are Radiohead or Pearl Jam available?), but the line-up of 2009's Langerado is particularly headliner-anemic, with Death Cab for Cutie, Snoop Dogg and some evil cabal called Thievery Corporation as the fest's headliners. Can't imagine the tickets will be flying off the netz for this one, gang.

 

Here's the fill line-up:

Okay, maybe the sarcasm is just too think for me to cut through...I'm hoping. This is an amazing line-up! After reading this, I'm trying to find a way to travel the 1000+ miles to the event! But, I mean, who's heard of Public Enemy?

I don't think it's a bad lineup. Pogues, PE, Bad Brains would all be great although I agree the festival might not have a huge headliner. I guess that goes to DCFC.

Add my vote to the growing chorus questioning Andrews ever-present sarcasm about everything: while the headliners might not be the most popular bands in the world as of December 2008, the line-up itself seems strong. I'd be willing to bet that tickets will, in fact, move quite briskly.

I wouldn't call Andrew sarcastic about everything. Other pubs have also stated the lineup lacks a big headliner. I can agree with that, but it's still not a bad festival.
