Pre-Sale Price: $46 (Single), $93 (3-Day)
I would love to see this festival, mostly for Weezer and Death Cab for Cutie (even though I've seen all the headliners at smaller venues). With over 100 bands, $93 for an all three day pass is a bargain.

Nozstock: The Hidden Valley is a camping festival. They're currently holding a competition to find a talented DJ, you can find more details at nozstock.com/dj-competition (it ends July 4th).
There are a lot of bands, but the headliners are The Futureheads, The Proclaimers, Dreadzone, The Correspondents. Interestingly enough, there's also comedy (Rubberbandits, Jason Rouse), plus electronica mixers (Zinc, Andy C, Camo and Krooked, Octane and DLR, Tomb Crew).
The other interesting thing I've noticed is that prices are different depending on your age. They've sold out of their "advance teen" tickets (age 13-17), so I reckon they would have to purchase an "advance adult" tickets if they have to buy a ticket now.
Where: Beech Mountain Resort, North Carolina
When: August 9-11, 2012
Pre-Sale Price: $75 (Single), $115 (3-day)
Billed as "Festival Culture Comes of Age in Western North Carolina", this diverse music festival is taking place on August 9th – 11th, 2012 at Beech Mountain Resort.
In addition to the music portion, I thought the extra cirque/theater stuff looks very interesting, including fire dancers, poets, fashion designers, Mud Wrestling Tournament, and "Bicycle Jousting".
I'll admit, I haven't heard of any of their artists because they aren't the typical musicians we cover (outside of one Beats Antique).

This is a traveling festival, on the more metal side of the music spectrum. Artists on this tour: Fear Factory, Voivod, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance To Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browning and Forged In Flame. I would imagine that with a large cast of bands that these shows would probably start early and runs all day.
I did check out Station 4's listing, pre-sale is $22 and starts at 2pm. That's got to be rough, considering it's a workday and free street parking won't kick in until 5pm in Saint Paul.
