I'm actually watching the Periscope stream of Bumbershoot's lineup release. The mayor and some other folks talked, and now they're showing the room the lineup announcement video, but because of glare on the screen, you can't even see the lineup through the festival's official stream.
The barrier exists, but it's just to keep too much pressure from building on people in the front. The barrier is open on both sides so anybody can walk in, but there are rare cases when security stops letting people into the front section because it's too full. If it's a big act and you want to be right up front, it's best to get up there early.
Thanks! That's actually a really cool idea on their part, usually gets extremely crowded up there. And yeah I'm trying to get front row for Kendrick so I'm gonna get there right when the gates open.
If you're up front at the main stage from when the gates open, you'll miss great shows from Natalie Prass, S, Sharon Van Etten, Alvvays, Run the Jewels, and many more.

Got an email from the festival says the lineup coming out on Wednesay
Last year, Willamette Week posted the lineup the day before MFNW announced it would be released. Hopefully we get some news later today!
While I don't necessarily want to believe the who-MFNW-recently-followed-on-Twitter-will-play-this-year's-festival theory because I don't need any more Foster the People in my life, Modest Mouse seems like a no-brainer with a new album and no Portland date since last fall's Project Pabst.
