It's so exciting!
Its soo sucky, I really wish I didn't have plans for the first weekend of August so I could go to Chicago. Lolla has better bands, it only cost $15 more, and its not so crazy hot.
I hate it.
Lollapalooza is just as crazy hot, I went last year and it was a hundred degrees but its right next to Lake Michigan and its about a thousand times more humid than ACL Fest.
So, now that the lineup is out, what do you plan to do with the site?

I really appreciate you keepin this thing up and running. It added a little excitment to my otherwise boring day at work.

Thanks for the hard work...
yeah, lollapalooza was just as hot at acl last year. it was AWFUL!!!
no, it wasn't. lollapalooza was not 108 degrees. they didn't have a dust storm either.
I love the line up I just wish that Roky Erickson was going to be there again. That would make it perfect maybe he will be a late edition.
I really am excited and surprised to see some great bands in this year’s line-up: The Flaming Lips, Massive Attack, The Shins, Thievery Corp., Aimee Mann (which by the way you’re missing on your list buddy), Tom Petty, Phoenix, Goldfrapp, Gomez,(the return of) Los Amigos Invisibles, etc. But I just wanna add that if you consider other festivals this summer around north US, Europe and Japan, they all have really big names on their lists: Radiohead, Beck, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Morrissey, Depeche Mode, Fiona Apple, just to name a few. So for an instant there, that just makes ACL seem a bit disappointing... but just a bit.
I don't think a really big name is necessarily what will make it a good festival... I really like the wide range of bands they have instead, I think it's a good mix and allows for the spotlight to be on more acts (which are all awesome) thanjust one.
I am pumped for this lineup.

Yes, I was hoping for a "blockbuster" headliner like Radiohead. But then again, thinking back on last year and how miserably crowded it was for Coldplay, I can live without that.

I think the lineup is very, very solid.

But where is My Morning Jacket?!?! (I keep missing these guys. Dang!)
What happened to Matisyahu? He is no longer on the official line up at the acl website. His website says he is playing, but his myspace doesn't?!? Can you get to the bottom of this?
I see the Strokes are touring w/Petty and look to be available the same days he is for ACLFest. A suitable replacement for Matisyahu?
For anyone going or thinking about going to the festival, I will be doing a daily breakdown of the schedule, artist by artist, on my blog.
