Wishlist of who could feasibly make it (based on touring schedules):
Lykke Li
Spiritualized
Feist
Dan Auerbach
The Von Bondies
The Rapture
Ambulance LTD
Razorlight
Nicole Atkins & The Sea

Note: IF the festival is Aug. 29-30 as anticipated, none of the following bands will be there:

BRMC are supposedly not touring until the next album (which is in production as we speak, and has no label yet).  Of course they said this before and completely ignored it, but so far this year their sticking to it (aside from a trip to Poland).  I wouldn't count on it, and I'd definitely be surprised.

I hope there's nobody in the lineup I really want to see because I can't afford these festival things :P

A Daptone Records curated stage would suit nicely

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
Budos Band
Menahan Street Band
etc

Toss in Bettye LaVette, Mavis Staples, Spanky Wilson and Van Hunt

DJ Requests

Derrick May
Mike Huckaby
Terrence Parker
Aux 88 live PA
Cassy
Cobblestone Jazz
DBX
Carl Craig DJ or Live PA
Moodymann

Second the request for the Von Bondies, while a bit slick production wise, am enjoying their latest record
The Features
Tinted Windows
The Romantics
Rancid
Phoenix
T.Rex

a couple additions...

Iggy Pop
Phoenix
Rodriquez
Andre Williams
Amp Fiddler

I predict that maybe 2500 people would attend my festival, probably 4000 if it were free...

I saw Aux 88 do a live PA back in Cleveland i believe a LONG time ago. it was quite entertaining, in a soul train meets breakdancing sort of way.


I dont know that many of my requests are time relevant as far as DJs go, but i would love to see

Robert Armani
Carl Cox (like, he can play every year, please)
Derrick Carter
Dave Clarke
Ricardo Villalobos

and i truly think we need some sort of Dutch/German gabber DJ to play just to freak everyone out really bad.

can i wish for Radiohead?

haha

Thank you. This topic definitely needed a remake.

But what if there were links to the different posts with the different staff in the first post? That would make this topic much easier to navigate.

I hope there's nobody in the lineup I really want to see because I can't afford these festival things :P

They've been pretty quite lately so I kind of knew they were stashed away working on an album which is why I said that I doubted they would be at the festival but who knows. Aren't they out in L.A.? That makes it less likely we'll see them for awhile. If they were here in the East than they would be more likely to consider taking a break and playing if the money was right or they just needed to get out for a bit.

See, the BRMC affect is something that I've noticed awhile ago and thought that the time was right to mention it.   ;D

One thing that is sort of bugging me about this thread is that it's title notes your 'predicions' but a lot of people are listing their 'wishes'. Two totally different things. Honestly, I'm not going to even bother with my wishes since I know that about 99% of them won't be on the bill. Probably 100% for that matter.

Regarding 'predictions', well, other than my Animal Collective post, I think the rest of you have a much better handle on that than I. So, carry on....

I'm glad to see *one* other person mentioned Franz Ferdinand. I really hope they get on the bill, they haven't gotten to do many festivals over here this year (Coachella and Bumbershoot), but are doing tons in the UK and Europe.

Come to think of it, they'll be in the states with Green Day through August 25th. Shouldn't be a problem to get them. Someone? Anyone?

Kosmo's list FTW!


And like Jaguar, my predictions list and wishlist would most likely be mutually exclusive.




Can't five or six of us get together and put on something? :)
