    2006 has Ben Harper, therefore it is better.

    2005 had the Pernice Brothers, Death Cab for Cutie, The Arcade Fire and Spoon.

    2006 Has Cat Power, Sparkle Horse, New Pornographers, Son Volt, The Shins, Jimmy Dale Gilmore, and probably most importantly Los Lobos.

    There are tons of other great acts on both years, but I guess 2006 gets the slight advantage

    2005 was better. The well known acts were plentiful, but other acts such as the Decemberists, and Death Cab were really good.

    This year, I'm looking forward to acts such Matisyahu, Damian Marley and Jose Gonzalez.

    In 2005, Pettitte was a much better pitcher. Plus Lidge wasn't getting too stressed out, etc.

    Oh wait... We're talking about recent pop music?!?

    I really like this year's stuff better but its all a matter of personal preferance.

    I still don't know what Tom freaking Petty is doing at ACL Fest. That alone makes me want to say 05 just because he just sticks out like a sore thumb.

    THE ARC ANGELS

    It was special because AA wasn't some national big name.. it was a local band comprised of 4 texas music legends.. a greatly underappreciated talent.. and the fans who were there were hardcore texas music lovers.. it was a real treat.

    I'm sorry, but that was just a phenomonal lineup, packed end to end. I was having to skip out early from sets to catch other ones that were starting because too many can't miss people were overlapped.

    ive been every year and 05 was definately my favorite - personal preference though - there were about 10 sets that i thought were amazing, but arcade fire was by far the best thing i saw. i never liked that band's record till i saw them live.

    plus tortoise, wilco, allman bros, black crowes, thievery corporation, built to spill, firey furnaces, roky erikson, bob mould, brave combo, m83.

    theres alot of good stuff this year too, but there are alot of blocks in my schedule where there isnt really anything that interests me. at least willie is finally playing this year! he only gets an hour though, which means he probably only plays whiskey river twice.

    Will be interesting to see if he's just going through the motions, or if he puts a little heart into his set.

    look, i understand the keeping it real part. but for a person who lives in austin, i can see most of these people any time i want. Having HUGE groups like Coldplay come to play shows how people appreciate Austin as a music loving town.

    having cutting edge groups like jet, franz ferdidand, the killers, show up shows that we are on top of our game.

    I dont like the old geezers like Tom Petty (i like Tom Petty, but not at ACL), this changes the cutting edge image of ACL

    Part of the reason I don't go to ACL anymore is that it has grown too big.

    His set at the rodeo a couple of years ago was beyond bad - he was just talking the lyrics, minimal harmony or actual singing, doing a bunch of medleys, and just generally looked like he'd rather be anywhere else. Saw him at the Backyard w/in the last year & he was amazing, just night & day from the rodeo gig.

    Hope his ACL set's more of the latter.

    i thought they did a great job of managing all the people. what they didnt do was account for all the dust and heat.

    more people coming to austin to enjoy our town? i'm all for it.

    we even got OASIS to come!
