I too am bummed by the news that Intonation won't be happening this summer. It was nice going to a festival that wasn't overly crowded, and even though I wasn't into all the bands, I appreciated the diverse lineup and the fact that I could relax during the bands I didn't know. I realize it's a dumb thing to complain about, but it sucks going to a festival when you want to see every band, because you will undoubtedly have to skip at least one in favor of food, shade, a seat and the bathroom at some point. Although, at least at Intonation/Pitchfork you still have the opportunity to see/hear every band; the Lollapaloozas and Coachellas of the world are guaranteed to put three of your favorites on at the exact same time.
