    You’re right Josh, I hope GB Leighton gets to play too

    Probables/excited to see:

    Deerhunter, Baths (who was awesome live), Braids (incredible live), Black Lips, Craft Spells, Crocodiles(!), Cults, Odd Future, i could see Elite Gymnastics on the bill, Emeralds/Mark McGuire, Eric & Magill, Fergus & Gernimo, Gauntlet Hair, Geographer, Glasser, HEALTH, How to Dress Well (probably wouldn’t translate outdoors), J Cole (would like to see J over Whiz, any day), Jaill, Japandroids, Julianna Barwick, Magic Kids, MC5, Memory Tapes, Monotonix, No Age, Oberhofer, OFF!, Pandit, Star Slinger, Small Black, Smith Westerns, Tanlines, Tennis, Toro, The Vaccines, Twin Shadow, Warpaint, Zola

    Improbable wish:

    Neutral Milk Hotel, Sufjan, Depeche Mode, Dino Jr., Dirty Projectors, GG Allin..oh, wait, Gorillaz, Grandaddy, Salem(!), Guided By Voices, LCD (yeah, surprise!), Nobunny, The Strokes, Pulp, RAA, Raffi plays his greatest hits, Ty Segall, Woods, WAX,

  3. Adam Bubolz says:

    Oh yeah Pulp! That’s would be the top of my improbable wish list if I would have remembered

  4. jonbehm says:

    Jarvis Cocker played just a few years back so I think that makes Pulp even more unlikely.

    Matt, I can’t believe I didn’t mention Cults. I don’t think MC5 could really reunite though without raiding a couple of graves. The Strokes though would be terrific – and maybe not actually all that improbable considering their new record

  5. Matt says:

    Yeah, hahaha, I meant to put MC5 in my improable picks… Cults will probably for sure play, same goes for her brother’s band Guards.

    Anyway, here’s the initial lineup. We’re all doing pretty well…
    (I can’t believe I didn’t think of TVOTR or Destroyer. I also thought A.C. would be a stretch, but I’m really excited to see them on there. I’ve been dying to see them.)

    Friday, July 15:

    — Animal Collective
    — James Blake
    — Das Racist
    — Curren$y

    Saturday, July 16:

    — Fleet Foxes
    — The Dismemberment Plan
    — Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti

    Sunday, July 17:

    — TV on the Radio

    MC5 have “reunited” in the past few years and play occasionally with the singer from the Dictators singing

  7. zoe says:

    i was surprised to see that toro y moi weren’t already on the lineup, considering how big of a crush Pitchfork has on them…

  8. solace says:

    i’d only really be interested in Sunday’s lineup, and 3 of those bands are playing here next month.

    def not going at this point unless the lineup changes drastically (or adds Archers of Loaf)

  9. solace says:

    oh, and i do like FF & D Plan, but i can’t see being too excited to see FF or James Blake at an outdoor festival.

  10. Matt says:

    Purchased. I figure if I can’t or don’t want to go later on I’ll be able to sell ’em for double. 110 is really cheap anyway for a three-day festival. And I won’t have to pay for lodging, so party on.

    I have never been a huge Neko Case fan. Maybe I can learn to love this summer
