Kind of light to fill four days (strange there are only 3 headliners?), but these are the bands I wouldn't miss if I had a ticket:

Outkast
Pretty Lights
Weezer
Girl Talk
Portugal. the Man
Grouplove
Iron and Wine
Twenty One Pilots
City and Colour

I'd see these bands if the schedule allowed:

Foo Fighters
Jack Johnson
Arctic Monkeys
Tegan and Sara
The Mowgli's

I'd probably give these bands a deeper listen and decide, but I wasn't immediately drawn to them when I first heard them:

Imagine Dragons
The Lumineers
Band of Horses
Young the Giant
Local Natives
Kaiser Chiefs
Phantogram
Washed Out
Phosphorescent

Of festivals I've recently attended, the lineup is weaker than the most recent Riot Fest (3 days) but better than the latest Skate and Surf (2 days).

I'm sure they'll give the headlining or closing spot one day for Imagine Dragons.

A very top heavy lineup, but still impressive. Big draws for me are Outkast, Foo Fighters, Weezer, Arctic Monkeys, Childish Gambino, Iron & Wine and Third Eye Blind.

I think I may skip Bonnaroo and make the easier trip to Firefly this year.

Kind of surprised Jack Johnson is headlining over them? They had a huge year this year. Are there other determinants for who headlines?

They said they've already planned 40 festivals this year.

I think Jack Johnson is in that category where he headlines no matter what. Same with Dave Matthews. They'll put the next biggest band to close out the second stage just so there's more people there. By that lineup, it'll be Pretty Lights or the Lumineers.

My only concerns is I have no idea how all of these artists are going to fit on Randall's. They're gonna have to be adding two more stages for this.
