3) they're hoping that a percentage of people who buy tickets this far in advance won't attend, therefore they can sell more tickets.
How would this work exactly? How would they know how many of the early orders weren't going to come so they could then print up and re-sell that number of tickets?

eww eww eww.  i'd be willing to give SG a chance, but seeing green day once was enough and i don't need/want to see gaga at all. 

considering what coachella, sasquatch and even bonaroo have on offer, things aren't looking good for lola.  almost has me excited for APW.

I think this lineup is the indication that we have reached "peak festival".   

The headliners are too past-their-prime touring veterans and the third is Florence & The Machine.  All of this supported by three days' worth of mostly third-tier nobodies.

Too many festivals competing for the available talent.

Two possibilities

- they want to be on the cutting edge with real up and coming artists along with a few well known headliners and become the premier festival in America

or

- they knew it would sell out talent unseen so they figured they could put out a cheap lineup with a couple of token headliners, thus maximizing profits

Since it's now Live Nation running the show I'll go with the latter.

I didn't realize Live Nation is running it. Well, there you go. And frankly, I totally concur with your assessment.
