Michigan gets its own would-be Bonnaroo

According to the Free Press, a huge new music festival is planned for July 3-6 in Rothbury, MI (Google map), a little town on the western coast of the state. The Rothbury Festival (official website) will include everyone from John Mayer to Snoop Dogg to Of Montreal with lots of other odd juxtapositions yet to be announced. They're hoping for a crowd of 50,000 people.

I promise I won't be among them. $100-475$? Yeah, right. I'll be at Tastefest/Cityfest in Detroit for free.

: There's one bad catch to this all:

"Many of Rothbury's acts have signed exclusive contracts that bar them from playing other Michigan dates."
So if you wanted to see an artist playing Rothbury but didn't want to pay $100, you might be out of luck.
