    I'm just hoping NIN and New Order are on the same night. That would be rad.

    Not sure if you went to Coachella 05 or not, but it would be pretty awesome to see that night recreated with NO on the same stage just prior to NIN.

    I think the news today of a new EP just sealed the deal for me to want to attend this show even more now.

    Yeah, no kidding! I was just thinking how I couldn't be more excited for this show since I did not expect to be seeing NIN again so soon, but now we will have TWO EPs of new material that will potentially be played. The last time I saw NIN was in Tinley Park on the Soundgarden tour and TR said they wouldn't be touring again for a long time, yet here we are a mere (in NIN terms) three years later and there will even be new material on the setlist (most likely) to boot!

    I wasn't and my 17 year old self still wishes he could have gone to that festival! So, this could definitely make up for it!

    Fingers crossed for a decent poster as well.

    On a side note. My wife and I decided to do VIP and we also registered for a locker. If they're big enough to protect posters, I'm more than happy to store anyone's I can fit as long as you're willing to work around my schedule to drop off and pick up. Locker is in the VIP area, so it should be reasonably safe.

    I don't think Friday could have turned out much better. I was going to make a final decision after panorama but I might buy on Friday. It looks like they will have single day VIP and deluxe VIP options too.

    I'm going to try and get a VIP for Friday and I'm still holding on to a tiny amount of hope that NIN does YZ (we'll find out tomorrow).

    Just so you're aware, the deluxe VIP and ultimate VIP are the only options that allows access to the separate viewing area. I've read in the past it hasn't been at the front of the stage, but at the soundboard. I'm sure everyone has different reasons for VIP but I'm not sure they do a real good job of letting people know that regular VIP doesn't include access to the separate viewing area.

    NIN's day here is very, very underwhelming for me. If the single day tix are still a decent price, then I guess we'll go, but I was really hoping to get some other bands that day. Hopefully they get announced doing an album straight through (doubtful) or some more good bands get announced for that day. Bleggh.

    So, single-day passes are "starting at $69.98." Looks like my guess earlier in this thread was right on the fucking money.

    Wow. It's probably been close to 10 years since the last time I paid so little to see NIN!
    Plane ticket should even that out

    NIN, New Order, Saul Williams, DFA and Liars in one day sounds amazing. I don't see how that isn't good enough.

    Danzig will be doing How The Gods Kill & Wu will do Enter The Wu-Tang in full at Riot Fest. So no NIN full album performance, as expected. Those are pretty good ones at least, just not on NIN's day of course. UGH!

    Yeah I was pretty disappointed to see that this morning. Guess Trent trolled us with the announcement image...

    I'm almost relieved because if Year Zero was getting played I would feel obligated to go this

    Who said that just because there's an officially announced list of bands playing specific albums means that there aren't other bands doing it "just for fun"?

    I'm so relieved Fridays lineup is lackluster simply because I was planning on going to the NIN stage as soon as doors opened to try to get front row.

    Got a VIP Friday ticket. Hoping for an awesome set list that includes at least 1-3 songs I've not seen live before. It's also my ninth time, @Bachy .

    Anyone go deluxe VIP? I'm wondering how long those will last since they don't have tiered pricing.

    Edit: they just added a second tier. 1st tier is sold out.
