Official dates are May 16-18, but the pre-party adds Thursday. They've got a new production company (RED MOUNTAIN: Beale St Music Fest, Bayfest), so the lineups could get better...or worse. They book good music, but they also book terrible music that sells really well. Can't say that I blame em, but I'm hoping this lineup is more Beale St. than Bayfest, and I think it will be. If you look at the acts they are working with now, I would expect at least one big country act like Florida/Georgia Line or even Alabama to help appease the local crowd.
My first guess is Neil Young & Crazyhorse • Phish/Widespread Panic • Arcade Fire • Robert Plant & Sensational Space Shifters • Something with Lazers
Here's to hoping we get something like that 2011 lineup. Who's going?
