Trailer Tuesday: Best Lineup Videos From 2012


Lineup videos for music festivals usually follow a fairly structured format. There’s a cool song, a few shots of the festival from previous years if available, and then a rundown of all the bands. But each year, there’s always a few stand outs which elevate the art of the music festival lineup video. Here are our favorites from 2012 in no particular order.

Music Festival: Outside Lands
Why We Love It: Finally, we get the MC Hammer origin story.

Music Festival: Parklife
Why We Love It: Cute and furry mascots combined with partial nudity.

Music Festival: The Governor’s Ball
Why We Love It: The Dancebulance.

Music Festival: The Gathering of the Juggalos
Whey We Love It: A completely gonzo 23 minute infomercial breaks every rule of the standard fest trailer. Low budget, insane, and wavering between absolute genius and total garbage.
