Ugh don't get me started. I love the Rio and if they get shut down over this BS I would expect some considerable backlash from people. That place is a landmark and shutting it down over some stupid technicality would drive me nuts.
That would be the most unknown list of headliners ever. I'm willing to bet 50% of the people who went last year wouldn't know a single song by any of those bands. It also really scares me that people think ATDI could headline. I just don't get them at all and would rather lie on the hill with ear plugs in watching the clouds than listen to them.
That being said I can't think of a more plausible list at this point.
That's why I threw the /sub in there. They're not really the 'big name' headliners like other festivals, but Snacks likes to to that I think. I mean, MMJ/Ween/Massive Attack?
That's exactly what I was thinking. That year seemed to be the year when the last 2-3 acts on every day had almost the same draw. I loved it, but then last year were 4 reasonably well know acts for headliners with weaker subs (IMO, save for the Lips).
I would love a 2010 repeat with 2-3 quality acts closing out the main each night rather than bigger headliners, but Snacks seemed to be going in the direction of names people know last year. Nevertheless, I will be surprised tonight by something.
