If i didn't love The gorge so much, i probably wouldn't be going this year. There aren't nearly as many "big names" bringing me there this year. I'm only really really excited about 2 of the bands, where as there was a good 15 for me last year.
the lineup is kind of a let down compared to last year (especially KOL and ben harper headlining) but i'll still be going because the sub-headliners are pretty solid and the overall gorge experience is hard to beat.

of course I will be going. I also go cause it is the gorge and as many of you know, the gorge and some good corn chips are way fun, I would go regardless of the bands. I just hope they add a few more really good ones!!
does the fact that the actual site is not up mean anything. Like I saw that page last night and it looked done , so can we really call it confirmed if thats not up, or was there some radio station thing that I'm not aware of.
There was definitely a press release. All the major music websites would not have announced the lineup without knowing for sure.
Here's most of the press release (emphasis added) with a breakdown of who is playing on what date:

Nope, probably not going this year. Too many bands overlapping with Bonnaroo and SXSW; I can't justify making a trip out there just to see them all again.
Have fun, y'all! If I were going, I wouldn't miss:
