Realistically if we don't get the schedule this week what will the announcement be this week?
Well the thing is, we've been getting two announcements per week. I think Wednesday and Thursday almost every week so I can't imagine one of them isn't the schedule
This year has been really weird. One week all we got was a beer vendor announcement and one week we got late night, additions, and cafe acts. Seems reasonable we get schedule this week though I just don't want to get my hopes up and have to wait longer.

Realistically, aside from the Radiohead announcement, what else are we missing after Cinema?
have they talked about kalliope, parades, grove or pods yet? essay contest winners and 5 other social media type things loom.
I do think we'll get a parade announcement this week. (New Breed Brass Band was added over the weekend.) I think the parade announcement was paired with an art car announcement last year. Can't remember if Kalliope was lumped into that.
That said, I don't think that has much bearing on whether they do the schedule this week. They could double up or wait a week. Either way, they wouldn't be far off last year's pace, if they stick with that plan.
I won't go through every right/wrong guess (my mock versus actual schedule), but I thought I'd highlight a few for my own personal report card. Feel free to throw in some more negatives if you care to, as I focused more on the positive matches...
Thursday: Lizzo got a much later time than I expected. Nailed times for Borns, Marian Hill, and Cashmere Cat.
Friday: I really thought Kamasi and Leon Bridges would be on What or Which. A little surprised they're both in tents. Had Halsey/Chvrches basically swapped in my mock versus actual. Nailed the whole J Cole, M83, LCD, Tame Impala thing (lots of people were convinced Tame would be on What). Didn't see Griz early(ish) on Which as happening at all. Swap Bob Moses and Blood Orange and I got the LN right.
Saturday: Chicano Batman is the only Which/What act that I didn't get right here (although have some swapped...I mean, didn't see Ellie Goulding playing anything other than What). Nailed the Nathaniel Rateliffe versus Clutch conflict (not happy about it), as well as the Ellie/SamHunt/Claypool/LambOfGod conflict. Had the LN acts swapped but got each pair in the same tent right.
Sunday: Had Third Eye Blind and X Ambassadors swapped from where they ended up, but I feel like a lot of people were thinking Third Eye Blind would be on Which. Thought Charles Bradley would be in a tent, but glad to see him opening up What. Also thought Father John Misty would be a tent closer and not on Which. Otherwise, got the Which/What stages pretty well (Jason Isbell, Kurt Vile, Death Cab, Ween, Dead placements).
