Mulling over possible curve balls since last night ultimately got me to realize the main reason I like this festival so much is that there wasn't really a need to satisfy me with a huge headliner and that was balanced out by the way it's stacked with an amazing equilibrium of punk, hardcore and smaller indie bands who generally aren't found on too many other festival lineups together. Good on them for growing, but there's something to be said when even FYF feels compelled to start drawing in tickets by booking a bigger name. I thought YYYs would be their largest get yet and even last year I felt M83 was pushing it, but if we're talking about bringing in someone at the level of like, Atoms for Peace (probably not them considering they have a Bowl date in October,) I don't think I'll be impressed really for the mere fact a mass appeal headliner will overshadow everything beneath it.
I'm okay if it's QOTSA, though.
It will also be cool if Dismemberment Plan play, too, since they're booked for that Detroit festival whose lineup got announced today.

Per Pitchfork's post on FLAG's tour dates, they're confirmed for 8/24, not that we didn't expect that or anything.
Good to hear, thomthom. I'd rather pay $99 for a lineup that sticks to what it's been doing the last few years anyway.
I want Co La and Explosions in the Sky. Co La was probably the best opening set that I've seen in a while. Check that guy out. He opened up for Tim Hecker & Daniel Lopatin last night. Visuals and the music translated wonderfully at the beautiful Roulette theater. Both sets gave me goosebumps
My ticket for last year was $89 but I bought the week of the festival. For how long were they $77?
I could be wrong but I think my buddy paid $99 at the gate...
This year's on-sale date of Thursday at $99 doesn't seem like any pre-sale discount will be happening.
Also, add Superchunk to the list of likelies. They just announced a new album.
I had a bagged whiskey dream last night.
