festival news

beloved local dj car stereo (wars) has been working with the acl fest to put together a mashup of 29 artists that are confirmed to play this year's festival. i guess this is like the "scavenger hunt" and crossword puzzles they have done in the past. the official lineup comes out next tuesday.

thanks to the ears of austin, so far it looks like the following people will be playing the festival:

okkervil river
man man
silversun pickups
css
NERD
gnarls barkley
the raconteurs
MGMT
jamie lidell
eli reed
neko case
kate nash
hot chip
octopus project
del the funky homosapien
the heartless bastards
robert earl keen

i have no idea who the other 12 are. i also have no idea if i'm even going to go to the festival this year but i thought this mashup was a fun idea so i decided to share it.

in other festival news, lollapalooza has released their official lineup. there are no surprises there. it's pretty much every band that's ever played at a music festival before.
