The 2011 Bacchanal Lineup Frenzy Has Begun

Allow us a personal anecdote, gentle reader. A few weeks ago, Bwog was sitting in a tire on the floor of our friend’s mom’s minivan, heading out of town for the weekend with a few friends. We spoke about Bacchanal, and suggested a few artists to our Bacchanal-affiliated-pal in the backseat: NOFX and blink-182, one friend, who dressed as Travis Barker for Halloween, suggested. We imagined The Worst Bacchanal Ever: Kenny Chesney would headline. The choice was, of course, clear by the time we reached the I-95: Weezy F. Baby, supported by DMX and Mariah Carey. Seriously, just think about it for a second. Only such an assortment would tempt us, we decided, to fly home from our study abroad locales in the spring.

This is Bwog’s Official Position on Bacchanal 2011, but now the kind folks at Bacchanal are letting you have your equally valid and potentially absurd say. Bacchanal invites you to email with your suggestion for the 2011 lineup. The artists cannot be determined by a majority vote, since availability and cost are factors, but suggestions will help shape the final decision.

This is what college is going to be like in April if you vote correctly:

    2. !!! says:

      @!!! Give me Ratatat and/or MGMT with Cudi, and THAT SOUNDS LIKE PERFECTION. LIKE, SERIOUSLY… I could also go for Girl Talk.

      Wayne would be hot, be he is notoriously late for his shows. He might not even show up. I saw him at a festival two summers ago, he was an hour late. His late arrival forced Bob Dylan to cut down his set. BOB. FUCKING. DYLAN. Plus, his new auto-tone rock stuff is utter shit. And NO MARIAH, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NO. Girl is trash, she can’t sing for shit now. She’s only a studio artist, wreeecked her pipes.

      1. um... says:

        @um... ratatat live? really? no. I’m a huge fan, but their music is too chill for concert material.

        1. no you're not says:

          @no you're not clearly never been to a ratatat show, they fucking rock live. they’ll b here in october- you’ll hav a chance to see how ignorant you are

          LES CLAYPOOL 4 bacchANAL and PRESIDENT!

      @i like him Kid Cudi is amazing on your mp3 player, but live? Not so much.

      Also, his new album bores me
