Well, my extremely optimistic hope that Mumford and Sons would play is completely dashed as they are in Japan the weekend of NFF. No chance for an Of Monsters and Men return as well for the same reason.
Any guesses as to the big name Saturday act? Edward Sharpe will be playing Floyd Fest that night (they're still possible for Friday night I guess). Bob Dylan is definitely ruled out. I'm going to place my bet on The Avett Brothers.
I also typed up the day breakdown as well and tried to sort it in some meaningful manner. We have 9 bands booked for Friday, 15 for Saturday, and 14 for Sunday (1 unknown).
Friday Old Crow Medicine Show The Mountain Goats John McCauley (of Deer Tick) Amanda Palmer Hey Marseilles Blake Mills JD McPherson The Last Bison Kingsley Flood
Saturday Jim James Colin Meloy Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls Justin Townes Earle Father John Misty Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Iris DeMent Shovels & Rope Langhorne Slim & The Law The Lone Bellow Jason Isbell Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers Houndmouth Hurray for the Riff Raff Rayland Baxter
Sunday The Lumineers Andrew Bird Beth Orton Black Prairie The Felice Brothers Bonnie "Prince" Billy and Dawn McCarthy Tift Merritt Lord Huron Michael Kiwanuka Michael Hurley Spirit Family Reunion Bombino Wheeler Brothers Cold Specks

Wow. Conflicts are going to be painful. I can't miss this year for Jim James, Father John, Trombone Shorty, Jason Isbell, Felice Brothers, Kiwanuka, as well as all the others i'm unfamiliar with (but recognize the names)

I think this lineup is ridiculous already but just being on the ocean is enough to make me buy a ticket anyways. I think the only place i would rather have this show is on martha's vineyard and i am thinking very hard about seeing deer tick play there. I am such a beach bum.
