Yeah just noticed that about Thievery Corporation. Bassnectar does have that mainstream appeal for an electronic artist that works for ACL, just hope they don't get lazy and book Pretty lights who is pretty much at every festival as well. I like Pretty Lights, just seen him plenty already.
This article was updated with a tweet from Elliot Wilson saying the album date wasn't actually confirmed yet, though it still seems a possibility. Seems like Kanye would probably put out a few singles starting with his SNL performance, dropping the album june 18 seems too early.

Yeah I really don't understand why C3 is getting Muse again as a headliner, seems such a waste of headlining spot. Don't have any interest in them either, hope the other headliners and subs are more impressive.
Yeah, Wonk definitely has a point there, I've just never gotten too into The Cure or Depeche Mode. I've casually listened to both of them and it never did too much, maybe it's because of my age or something. Now if all four bands end up there, I will probably still go see them over the alternatives just because of who they are.
A second follow-up point, I would rather there be a lineup where there are conflicts instead of one where I'm saved the piece of mind of deciding over who to see, because at least then there is still a choice rather than being saved the choice because of a subpar booking. This is a bit of a nit-picky argument, but nonetheless I hope at least neither KOL or Muse are booked, which still seems pretty likely knowing ACL.
I should probably give Depeche Mode and The Cure another listen given their likelihood of being there.
