Explosions in the Sky and Santigold at least. Overall quite disappointing for me, but hopefully it will be like 2010 where I research many people I knew nothing of and came away a big fan of a bunch of people.

Primus should totally be at Voodoo instead of this. Rehage blew it. Hopefully Squarepusher, Shpongle or Orbital gets added to Voodoo. I would love to see either of them. Voodoo's electronic lineup is better than this. It's a dedicated 3-day rave at Voodoo. Not really my scene but it is a pretty impressive throwdown.
A lot of cool indie stuff in this lineup though. I'd go if it didn't compete with Voodoo. It's too much of a personal tradition at this point.
I know I will- I can't wait to get out of work and start my tedious searching ;D lol i know a lot of names on here, like i've heard the names thrown around, but never heard the actual music, so i know i won't be disappointed. WOOO! lets go October

I honestly have to say I'm a bit disappointed by some of the artists being ones that I doubt even use a synthesizer. Also a bit sad they didn't bring Washed Out or anything up the same alley and yet bring GZA back from Roo. Ok, that is the last of my whining. Time for MoogPlaylist2012 domination.

They opened up for Phantogram when I saw them and nobody clapped the entire time because we weren't sure if the vocalist was in physical pain or just a terrible singer. Boring, dry, and annoying - but that's just my opinion!
Social aspect is a pretty good part of it, the lineup is just gravy. El-P and Killer Mike are big surprises, can never get enough Wu also. I heard EITS is good. Primus seems interesting. Curious to check out Orbital and others.
Could the lineup be better? Of course. Do I know much of the lineup? No. But I'm pretty excited anyway.
