Galactic and Soulive are the two bands on the list that I would describe as funk/soul acts. Almost every band on the list has some element of funk in their sound though! There does seem to be a bit of a deficit in this area compared to James Brown and the Meters last year. I think adding the right hip-hop act could inject some much-needed funk into the line-up (Blackalicious/Gift of Gab or Lyrics Born please!!!).
