7-8 but can easily jump to a 9 with some nice additions - I really want to see Vampire Weekend added as you guys all got my hopes up haha. MGMT, Cut Copy, & Foxygen would be nice too. Just give me one of them!

I give it a solid 8. I still don't see much room for "big" tent/stage additions (line-up top 40) once they get through the cafe, comedy, and silent disco adds. That being said, a few solid cafe acts, a couple hard/metal/post rock adds, and another couple of interesting EDM acts (Disclosure, Blondes, BMSR) and this is easily a 9/10.
Perfection doesn't exist, especially when you consider how brutal the conflicts are likely to be.

7. Was hoping for any 2 of : Black Angels, Regina Spektor, She & Him, Les Claypool, Placebo, Xavier Rudd, Franz Ferdinand, Alabama Shakes, Vintage Trouble, Cold War Kids. Cant believe not even 1 of them.

I scored it a 9 subjectively, considering how good I hoped and thought it might actually be. Definitely exceeded my expectations! More objectively, thinking about how good I could imagine and actually expect a lineup to be I'd still score it a 8.

It's tricky, because it IS possible to have too many good bands. If there's too many good ones, then there will be conflicts galore, so even though I get to see one I want, I'm also kind of a sad panda during it because I know I'm missing one or two more that I want to see. That said, I think this lineup because is great because it is stacked without being too great.
I give it an 8.5. Amazing headliners and undercard. However, with metal being my favorite genre I'm a little disappointed with how many choices we have, so it loses 0.5. Baroness is an AMAZING choice to get though (probably the best band they realistically could have gotten for my taste honestly), plus Roo has never been metal-centric, and many bands are in Europe too. Hence only 0.5 off. However, I've been getting into jam much more this year, so I'm bummed that this is the year with the least amount of jam ever. I do wanna see Mule, but the lack of jam loses this lineup 1 point.
love this line-up...gave it an 8 just because of the conflicts that are bound to happen. Probably the first year I can remember having conflicts on Thursday. If the scheduling gods are kind, this could possible be the best line-up ever for me!
The conflict talk is the truth. I gave it a 9/10 based purely on the artists, but I don't know how many great adds I can handle at this point. Short of one of those bands that I absolutely must see that I would probably otherwise never have a chance to see. So basically I need a New Order add to be any happier than I am now with the lineup.
And the only reason its not a 10/10 is because of the non-Macca headliners. Mumford I'll probably catch just to be a part of what will probably be a huge show, and Petty I like but am not crazy for. If it was something like Macca - NIN - Phish then we'd be talking perfect 10.
