I'm going in Indiana this year, so to me it's worth it! If you like the bands, I'd say go! It's not expensive, considering you'll be seeing tons of bands. The bad thing would be the extreme heat, long hours, and hundreds of people. But to me, I'll tough it out if I get to see my bands. And everyone I've talked to that has went says it's incredibly amazing (if you're into that stuff. I'm assuming you are) and they want to go again.
