AC/DC at an outdoor festival would be alright but overall, even with Jack White on one of the other days, the lineup is a whopping "meh."

I wouldn't think so but there they are. IMO, this year's lineup is the tipping point where Coachella promoters think(hope) the "festival" is bigger in the mind of the public than just about any name or names that participate in it.

I bought a ticket for this last April during a special presale.

I am probably going to sell it.

There are maybe 5 or 6 bands on that lineup I would want to see, and every single one of them will play my city in the days before or after for like 17 dollars.

This 400 dollar ticket I own cannot be gotten rid of soon enough.

Other than Jack White the headliners don't interest me at all. I've seen ACDC in the past and enjoyed them, but would not travel to see them.
I'm interested in a number of the smaller acts but not willing to travel to CA. I'm sure many of them will be passing through Toronto in the near future.

This festival in New York has a similar lineup. I would be willing to go to NYC since it's only a 1 hour flight.
I wonder if Drake will be headlining Lolla this year too.

Drake was on Degrassi:The Next Generation before he became a rapper. Personally, I am not a fan of his music.
Synopsis

Famed hip-hop artist Drake was born to a mixed-race couple in Canada in 1986, and raised Jewish. He came to fame playing wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks in seven seasons of the popular teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation. In 2006, Drake began circulating mixtapes of his raps, and signed a record deal in 2009. His hit songs include "Every Girl," "Best I Ever Had," "Money to Blow" and "Take Care."

Early Life

Drake, the world's only black Jewish-Canadian rap star, was born Aubrey Drake Graham on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Canada. Drake grew up with music in his blood. His father, Dennis Graham, was a drummer for legendary rock star Jerry Lee Lewis, and Drake says that his mother, Sandi Graham, also hails from a "very musical" family. Drake comes from an eclectic and unique racial and religious background. His father is an African-American Catholic and his mother is a white Canadian Jew. Speaking about his personal identity, Drake says, "At the end of the day, I consider myself a black man because I'm more immersed in black culture than any other. Being Jewish is kind of a cool twist. It makes me unique."

Drake's parents divorced when he was 5 years old, and he was raised by his mother in Forest Hill, an affluent and predominantly Jewish Toronto neighborhood. He had a Bar Mitzvah at age 13 and observed the Jewish High Holy Days with his mother. "My mom has always made Hanukkah fun," Drake recalls. "When I was younger, she gave cool gifts and she'd make latkes." Despite his Jewish upbringing, Drake says he felt isolated at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, his virtually all-white high school. Drake remembers, "Nobody understood what it was like to be black and Jewish." However, he also adds, "being different from everyone else just made me a lot stronger."

'Degrassi' Star

It was one of Drake's classmates at Forest Hill who gave him his start in the entertainment industry. "There was a kid in my class whose father was an agent," Drake would later explain, adding, "His dad would say, 'If there's anyone in the class that makes you laugh, have them audition for me.' After the audition he became my agent."

Shortly afterward, in 2001, Drake landed a role on the Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation. The show follows the dramatic lives of a group of teenagers at Degrassi High School, and Drake played the part of Jimmy Brooks, sometimes dubbed "Wheelchair Jimmy," a basketball star who becomes permanently wheelchair bound when he is shot by a classmate.

Drake starred on Degrassi for seven years (2001-09), earning a 2002 Young Artist Award for best ensemble in a TV series, among other honors. The show quickly developed a devoted cult following—"There are very few subtle Degrassi fans," Drake has said—propelling Drake to celebrity status in Canada, even while he remained relatively anonymous in the United States.

I love that the song is basically two drum beats (one light on, one "heavier") and one keyboard riff played over and over or not at all.. the drum beats start and stop to accentuate choruses or dropping right in.... and those lyrics... he does drop "nigga" all the time which is awesome....

I did like that interlude bit where "his whole damn crew" was working in the supermarket... that was mildly amusing...

Or he was just grossed out by having a 60 year old woman kiss him.

Don't let the makeup and photoshops fool you, she's not looking great.

I recognize a lot, but only because I still listen to Alternative music stations.

I don't know who Calvin Harris is, so I assume he's either Rap or R&B because neither are even remotely near my music radar.
