Many would-be concertgoers are, instead of getting ready to howl out the lyrics to “I Wanna Be Adored” and saluting the return of Jurassic 5, complaining about the Rolling Stones not being booked, though I’m most disappointed by the lack of Diplo on the Jerky Boys Stage. I guess we’ll have to SETTLE for the Postal Service.
