The Chip just announced their initial concert line-up for 2020. I'm amazed how lame the concert line-up is from year to year at the Chip. They announced Willie Nelson, REO Speedwagon, and ZZ Top for 100th time at the rally :? . Considering all the money that is made at the Chip and all the good bands that are out there, the best they can do is to get the same repeats. For the 75th we were expecting something special as well and got a below average line-up.
Don't get me wrong, I love the overall Chip experience. We've been going for the past ten years and we'll be there again this, however the concert line-ups could be much better.

It's all about economics. In a normal year the Chip chooses bands based on presale reservations and determines how much money can be spent as reservations come in.
The anniversary years, 75th, 80th, etc are the BIG profit years... Cheap bands... Cuz attendance rises in the 5th year and they don't have to spend money on bands.
