I'll leave the headliners out of my top-10, because I could easily put them as my top-3 as I've never seen any of them and really want to. Also the Joy Formidable and Delta Spirit would also be in my top-10 but I'm seeing them locally next month so I might skip them if there's a major conflict.
1. Bon Iver 2. Dispatch 3. Foster the People 4. Young the Giant 5. Dawes 6. Fitz & the Tantrums 7. Fruit Bats 8. Battles 9. Flying Lotus 10. White Denim

Lots of gold on the undercard. I really want to see a few more, but I'm holding out hope... Superjam = Atoms For Peace?

Bon Iver Radiohead Phish The Roots Flying Lotus Black Star The Avett Brothers Alice Cooper Umphrey's McGee The Beach Boys I haven't seen any of those artists except for Phish and Bon Iver so that takes precedence in most situations. I'm not really convinced The Beach Boys are going to be very impressive but I don't think I could pass up the chance to see them unless it's a conflict with something I'm really excited for.
