For the 5-dayers out there: which day inspires you the most to wake up at 4 a.m. and tarp run?

For the day trippers (ie- me): is Thursday's lineup enough of a draw to ignore the Hip/BSS/Hey Rosetta party? If not, which day will you be attending?

Me: Sunday. Reason: Jeff Tweedy.

to be sincere, I read M. Ward and forgot all about the other big show of that night! (I have, however, seen him 3 times already, but 3 times are not enough, it seems)

I dunno. There's not one day that really stands out...but i'll be attending the entire festival anyway.

I agree that there isn't one day that stands out - but Thursday and Sunday have the two acts I'd like to see (M.Ward & Jeff Tweedy).
I'll reserve my decision for the Blue-Stem line-up to be announced.

Yup, that Hip/BSS/Hey Rosetta show is calling us, and we will be driving into the city for that night to see it.

Oh, the paradox of too much choice.

M. Ward is who I want to see most.
I guess I'll be missing the Shaw concert. Unfortunate that they are on the same night.

Especially unfortunate considering that the FF lineup as a whole is weaker this year than others.

I am also waiting for the Blue Stem (Big Blue?) lineup. I had a fabulous time there during the evening over the last few years.

I hope that Hey Rosetta can also preform at the festival.
