Sounds like they're going into more of a jamband lineup than full on electronic which makes me a happy girl. Don't get me wrong - I love electronic for late night but not as the big headliners. Can't wait to see who else they bring out!
If this is any indication of billing order: wakarusa.com/artist-lineup/ There is still some pretty big names to be added (or semi-big names playing more than one day). I'm assuming that is why yonder and zeds dead is billed above OM+M.
It usually is because the routing makes sense with the two fests being on back-to-back weekends in the past, but they aren't this year so a couple of acts may not make it. It still makes sense, but it's a little less of a safe bet.
I'm with Clairity on this VIP thought process. I went Main Venue early arrival and I spent more than the VIP price in those 5 days when you add it all up. Of course I spent several hundred dollars on things I probably could have done without, but that's neither here nor there lol. But I'm getting older, the less walking I have to do the better. And being upfront for some of my fav bands is something you can't put a price tag on.

That is a massive difference between GA and VIP. Pack smart and bring all your own booze and smuggle it into shows and save bank. VIP camping is never as cool because the GA people can't get to your camp, friends or strangers. I bring my own food and drink and barely spend anything inside festis except for souvenirs. If you're swimming in cash def go for it though, that dancing space up front is badass.

Def check out Calexico!! They are amazing live. Red Baraat is the heat, see them while they are low on the card they will get bigger every year. Amon Tobin is a great add, and MUTEMATH is going to be sickness with a Waka crowd. If they add ZPZ I am def going.
