Not that great, really. I'm a bit disappointed. There's still a ton of cool music here, and a few that are definitely must sees for me:

Jack White
Bloc Party
Gambino
The Shins
Franz
Metric

Awesome shit there. But, yeah. Other than that, not much that I'm personally thrilled about.

But, still, Bloc Party alone makes this something to look forward to. What an awesome band. So glad they're back in the swing of things after all those weird "Kele is out of the band" rumors last year.

Like Eating Glass and This Modern Love will kill.

Just hoping there aren't any conflicts there. The mid-section is by far the best part of the festival, and Bloc Party are right in the thick of it. Obviously, it wouldn't be a decision for you, but Bloc Party vs. Franz/Metric would be awful for me.

Overall this would pretty much be the lineup I'd be focusing on, too .

I'm really kinda sad I won't be going to this now.

Also:

Lolla goes from Two Door Cinema Club to Bombay Bicycle Club between 2011 and 2012. Two awesome bands. I'll be seeing both of them this summer!

June, I believe.

I can never really get excited about the fest until I know who I can actually see, but it gives me an opportunity to look into some new bands in the meantime.

Like Little Dragon! I've put off listening to her work for too long.

Yeah with the list I drew up there I'd be incredibly upset if I missed any of them...

Doesn't seem all too likely but you never know. Gotta wait to see who ends up on what days...

What a lousy, boring lineup. Coachella destroyed Bonnaroo and Lolla this year.

Got my hopes up, too. That would've fully satisfied the initial lack of strong headliners...

I was about to post 'now to get U2 to Lolla' and said 'I better not because I'll be slammed for that'. Then I remembered I wasn't in public, I am on Interference. I need more coffee.

It's nearly always

1. Coachella
2. Lolla/ACL (C3 books them both, so they're rarely miles apart in quality)
30. Roo

And this year is no exception. Pulp alone gives Coachella an edge. That said, I love the lineup. Really, it's great. Last year was such an insult that this is musical fucking ambrosia in comparison. I'd go out of my way to see (and pay full price for) like 20 of these bands. That's up from about half a dozen last year.

I know I'm right because the idiots on the Lolla Facebook think the lineup is terrible. RHCP is the only saving grace!!1 Wherez Skrillexxx?? Who the fuck are "Sugar Rose"?? Sugar Ray I can get behind

The headliners aren't exactly thrilling me, but the undercard's pretty terrific, and for once, there are bands at Perry's I wanna see.

The problem with the headliners for me is:
*Good chance of Black Sabbath not actually being there, and if they are, being there without Bill Ward
*Red Hot Chili Peppers without Frusciante, hopefully they don't focus heavily on new material.
*Jack White headlining a solo show?
* I don't even really know who At the Drive In are, I'll have to check them out.
* The Black Keys...just...guh, it's not even that I don't like them so much as it is, they're at Lolla every fucking year.

Florence is cool.
