    Forget it. I asked 'kraw' and he denied. The visuals will be the same as we saw till now, he told me.

    Ah that's a bit of a bummer. If they're going for the stripped down look I much prefer the 2009 can lights.

    Because of the size of the stage area?

    TY Midnight-2AM Sunday night.... really? That's where the choped & screwed aardvark fighting a yak set needs to go. Don't people work anymore?

    If you decide to go, do not buy tickets until 2 weeks out. You'll get 40-50% off their ridiculous prices when they realize they aren't ACL yet.

    Bummer indeed, mentioned earlier but I really think this is a missed opportunity for TRez to flex his artsy muscles to do something unique given the concept of this festival. lollapalooza/FYF/ACL are all essentially the same with little quirks, this seems genuinely different. NIN can go back to their standard(really good) visuals for the other fests.

    Yea, that space just doesn't look very big at all. Not complaining about that! All of the Tomorrow's Modern Boxes shows have started super late like that. His two shows in CA leading up to this one don't start until 10pm. And that's just when the opener starts. I'll definitely be flying home tired af Monday.

    Who is ‘kraw’? And also, if Trent wanted to surprise us and keep it secret how would anyone know?

    John Crawford, the current NIN Art Director. Rob's replacement. I hope there is a surprise but I'm convinced NIN isn't getting paid a ton and offsetting any custom dev would be tough with a festival that is currently selling tickets for 40-50% off.

    For sure. After seeing how the prices were handled this time around I'm definitely gonna hold out for a discount next year.

    Why are you convinced they aren't getting paid a ton? I'm not disagreeing or anything, I'm just curious. Just because it's a festival show in general or something else?

    I'm sure that's worked out ahead of time and not dependent upon ticket sales. This fest obviously is having trouble selling tickets (did last year as well) and may be strapped for cash trying to get this thing off the ground. Part of me thinks that TR/MMR being fans of these types of art installs may support it by taking less.

    On the Thom Yorke discussion; I found some pictures of the Blue Stage area from last year(festival map). looks like a good amount of space, but it's a really long space and easy to wind up waaaay in the back or stuck on the side.

    Thanks for posting those pics. I'd only seen a couple others, but those give a much better feel for it. Total EU rave vibe. People on Reddit are saying that room filled up super fast last year.

    If you're into St.V setlist Spoiler: it looks like she plays mostly the same setlist every time in chronological order of her discography. 40 mins of early stuff then 40 mins for the latest album in its entirety. That lines up with her odd 1 hour 20 minute set time. I'm mostly into the new stuff, but might start thinking about bailing out after Young Lover to get inside for TY

    I'm not a huge fan but I wanted to check her live show out. I'm really only going to this for NIN and TY though so I'm more than likely going to be at the blue stage for the duration of her set.

    I am so fucking excited to see NIN again. This will be the third time since September as well as just my third time seeing them and I'm just as excited as the 2nd time. I don't know if this is a temporary obsession or not, but I'm riding the NIN high for as long as I can sustain it (financially & if it continues).
