When one thinks of the future of live music, what comes to mind? Flosstradamus on the same bill as Dave Matthews Band? Diplo playing a DJ set for rowdy 311 fans/dude-bros with arm-band tattoos and eyebrow piercings?
Well, call me crazy, but The Rothbury Festival at the Double JJ Ranch (…what?!) in Rothbury, Michigan will be fulfilling every Primus fan AND Black Keys enthusiast’s wildest dreams, along with all of the aforementioned acts on the same bill. In the same place. July 3-6. And for $244.
I mean, I don’t know what kind of music people enjoy to listen to in Michigan, and I obviously understand Phish-heads and other like-minded jam-band fans need their festivals too, but I never thought I’d see the day that of Montreal fans would have to battle it out in the beer-line with Dave Matthew’s Band die-hards.
I simply think this whole line-up is very peculiar. If you were getting buck to Flosstradamus’ bangin’ beats, would you want to risk getting felt-up by a smelly, head-banging Broseph waiting to see Slightly Stoopid?
