I think the lineup is one of the better for sure. We still got plenty of additions to come including the comedy tent and probably more reggae and electronic. Im sure they will surprise us with a special curated stage as well. No big surprises as we did some great sleuthing this year, but I can name 30 bands on thereI am looking forward too!!
Bring on the Roo!!!
Ur enthusiasm excites me yet the only special stage he will prolly be the solar stage again and the added EDM bands will probably be pushed to the Silent Disco again. I found out Manny Fresh Dj'ed last year for an apperence at the Disco. To some people, its like if Phish and Bruce played a quickey at the Sonic Stage for 15 people trying to escape the sun under the tent next to it. How are people going to even hear Manny or anyone come on and Special Guest on a little stage under a tiny tent fitting only about 150 people. They need to bring back the luner stage, book some EDM artist...they got time, and put Skrillex on it to signify that its a new mark on the Farm for latenight.

So, as a jam fan, this isn't the greatest lineup. Really expected Weir, Robinson, Greene. Or at least DSO. That said, there's a lot of great stuff on here! I'm pumped for The Word, Bon Iver, Ben Folds Five, SBTRKT, Charles Bradley, and so many more! See y'all at 'Roo for sure! I'm definitely gonna try and stop by Camp Inforoo at some point!
One last note...elated to see Black Star and The Roots billed above Ludacris. No disrespect to the man, but 10 years from now I'll still be spinning "Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star", "Illadelph Halflife" and "Come Alive", scratching my head to name more than two Ludacris tracks.

Yeah, but they are nowhere near pre-headliner big. I mean, not even close. I've posted other times thinking they should be on Which so it's not like I'm underestimating them or don't think they're huge right now, but you're mad. I love them and can't wait to see them on the farm though. I saw them at Outside Lands last year and they quacking packed that place. They've only gotten bigger since. They should be on Which. They won't be pre-headliners.
I'd suggest looking at old lineups and schedules to get an idea of the types of acts that get those slots. You might also want to read around on here more before posting another uninformed assumption. Hope you have a great time at Foster! Seeya there, dude.
Ok so let's say they are around 8ish. I'm trying to think who would be in the 4-7 slots. What insider also considers "headliners". Not major names but big enough to pre. (just trying to get some good ideas going
I felt like an idiot after posting this and getting lit up on here. Now not so much
