Last year this time, the only thing we knew was Foo Fighters. That we don't know a headliner yet only indicates that they didn't blow their whole god damn wad on one band.
The moral of the story is Stop Bitching About There Being No Lineup Yet. It'll be here in a couple weeks. Then when that happens maybe this place will snap out of the shitty mood it's been in for the last two months.
I'll start because I'm bored. I might edit it later.
Black Keys (headliner) Arctic Monkeys (headliner) Radiohead (HEADLINER) Primus (headliner)
War on Drugs, Yo La Tengo, Fun, GroupLove, M83, Sheepdogs, The Wooden Sky, Arkells, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, Gogol Bordello, A-Trak, The Kooks, Battles, Girls, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Future Islands
I didnt put Dragon Boy Suede on there because that's already a given.
It was really a shame that Yo La Tengo was up against M83. They deserved a lot more people than the 742 that showed up, but you can't really blame people for wanting to watch M83 at sunset on the mainstage. That show was awesome.
1. Red Hot Chili Peppers [headliner] 2. Portishead [headliner] 3. Black Keys [headliner] 4. Mumford & Sons [headliner] 5. Bon Iver 6. Arctic Monkeys 7. Fleet Foxes 8. Air 9. Pretty Lights 10. The Shins 11. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros 12. Feist 13. War On Drugs 14. Wild Flag 15. WU LYF 16. chune-Yards 17. St Vincent 18. Fucked Up 19. Allen Stone 20. Bombay Bicycle Club 21. Alabama Shakes
I actually hope I'm wrong about a few of the headliners (like Mumford) and right about a few of the reaches (like Air and St Vincent).
one question - headliner is defined as the top billing on the poster, right? because the slot the FLAMING FUCKING LIPS played last year (and Pavement the year before) is billed the same or higher than other bands that close the mainstage. so really, you could say there would be 5 headliners this year. just splitting hairs.
