    At this point to me, Beyoncé feels like the obvious headliner option that never gets mentioned. She's much poppier than the average headliner, but she's got the legit admiration to back it up.

    At any other festival Kendrick isn't quite a headliner . . . but assuming the next album hits soon, he can totally headline a festival in southern California.
