I'm really hoping Buffalo Springfield isn't correct. There's only a few bands that I hope don't show up and waste valuable stage time and those are: the rumored Buffalo Springfield, Black Eyed Peas, Kid Rock, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Beastie Boys... not that they are all bad, but I've seen RHCP and Besties before, and don't want a headliner slot wasted on the other three.

Well, STS9 is up in the air right now with one guy having cancer, so as much as I'd love them there, I don't know they're that realistic.
SCI doesn't really tour much these days, and are said to be planning their own festival for this summer.
I suppose moe. could be there, but I haven't heard anything.
Basically what I'm saying is that I don't know why you're surprised. If that lineup hadn't had Panic/Black Keys/Black Star, that would have jumped out at me, but having no moe./SCI/STS9 jumps out at me about as much as having no Radiohead/Daft Punk/Outkast. Wasn't really that likely to begin with.

It's the Saigon in there that caught me. I know he FINALLY dropped his album, but I didn't know if he was touring/would tour/whatever. I guess a festival appearance or two would be good promo. I also have no idea if he's any good live.
