My Dream Festival

The "Dream Festival" meme. I tried to make sure the bill was at least somewhat logical versus just sticking my top six acts together. I'd like to think that there would be plenty of other people who would enjoy this entire lineup. I had to add a second stage because there were a bunch of acts that just missed the main stage in my opinion.

The first act plays 5 songs.
The second act plays 5 songs.
The third act plays 8 songs.
The fourth act plays 8 songs.
The fifth act plays 10 songs.
The sixth act plays 14 songs.

Act 1: Ben Folds - Ben solo
Tom and Mary
Sentimental Guy
Song for the Dumped

Act 2: Barenaked Ladies - Acoustic with single multi-directional mic
Gangster Girl
Same Thing
For You
Wishing Well
The King of Bedside Manor

Act 3: Jason Mraz - Acoustic with Toca and Ian
Older Lover Undercover
Not So Usual
gypsy mc (Mudhouse version)
Fine Dining
All That Lies
Bone Dry ft. Mraz
Personal Ads ft. Bushwalla

Act 4: Guster
Come Downstairs And Say Hello
Airport Song
Barrel of a Gun
Jesus on the Radio (Acoustic)
(Nothing But) Flowers
Fa Fa

Act 5: O.A.R.
Hey Girl
Black Rock
Night Shift
Old Man Time
She Gone
About Mr. Brown
Road Outside Columbus
Dareh Meyod
That Was a Crazy Game of Poker

Act 6: Rustic Overtones
Brand New Friend
Pop Trash
20 Years
Long Division
Gas on Skin
History Crush
Car Sick
Month And A Half
Iron Boots

Second Stage

Mike Doughty
Raul Midon
KT Tunstall
G. Love
Jurassic 5


~The order has more to do with ramping up the energy level as the show goes on rather than my artist preference but I tried for a balance of both.

~Choosing songs for Folds and BNL is damn near impossible since there are so many more that 5 I'd want to hear.

~BNL ends up second only because I've seen them so many times and because they'd play a short, all acoustic set.

~It kills me to put Mraz third, but I'd want his set to be acoustic as well, so in the interest of putting the higher energy acts later he gets bumped (though I did cheat and put the EP as the first tune. It's 35 minutes and comprises an entire album, but it doesn't stop so I'm counting it as one).

~Guster and O.A.R. are pretty evenly matched in my book but I'm on a pretty serious O.A.R. kick right now so I'd like to hear a couple more songs from them.

~I had a three song encore for Rustic because I couldn't pair it down but I moved some things around instead to try and stick to the rules.

~This was much harder than I thought it would be.

    I wouldn't have it any other way.
