Can't fucking wait. I'm thinking probably Portishead and Animal Collective towards the top. I wouldn't be surprised if they waited until after Bonnaroo to unveil the lineup, just as they did last year.

You can camp too though. Asheville has a lot of camping right outside the city, and there's plenty of info on how to do it on the main site. At least it was there a year ago when I was planning my trip.
I went last year and it was pretty great. Really don't know where I'll be come October, so not sure if I'll make it this year but I hope to because I know the lineup will be good stuff. I wrote about my experience at last year's Moog (I drove from North Dakota and slept in my car all three days) if anyone is interested. It's a personal account, and has more to do with what was going on in my life than the festival, but it's all centered around my time there. If anyone is interested in reading, I'm posting it here (if you don't feel like investing a ton of time, day 3 is a pretty good read all by itself).
Sample text to entice you to read: "I must have looked as if I were a diseased creature. Covered in cigarette cartons like bird shit, smeary colored face, drinking wine out of a pair of sweat pants. A dead baby hung off the side of my head — crying to get high on smokes and glue."

Exciting stuff. Shit Robot is a great suggestion, and a throw in a James/Pat Special Disco Version set as well. Hell, why not just let DFA take over the Orange Peel. They've got their own tent at Hard Summer and Bisco Inferno.
Along with that, some other acts that seem plausible that I'm hopeful for...
Trentemoller (rumors of a fall US tour) Cut Copy Flying Lotus Battles
Also, Apparat's new full band live tour sounds amazing. Would be a perfect fit for Moog. Really hope they get him.
