According to Festive Owl, the Firefly App leaked a lineup earlier. It’s pretty similar to rumors that have been swirling about and would be odd if this didn’t resemble the lineup if and when it does come out.
I was beginning to think there wouldn’t be an actual Firefly festival, and instead, the organization would just have fun accepting funny memes from their fans and giving away free “tickets.”
Alas, it looks like a festival may actually happen, and the lineup is… interesting.
Honestly, for someone my age who grew up with their parents playing them every Beatles record ever, how could I not want to see Sir Paul? I would argue that The Killers and Kings of Leon are kind of weak headliners, but will put on great shows, regardless of my stupid opinions.
I’ve never gotten into the Morrissey is God thing, but that’ll be cool for those who did, I guess.
Snoop Dogg will be hilariously awesome.
Kid Cudi will either smash it or be wildly disappointing.
Hozier, Bastille, Walk the Moon, and Cold War Kids are all making the most of their Radio 104.5 fifteen minutes of fame before they each have to prove whether or not they have staying power. (Guys, who’s Gotye?)
HOW IS RUN THE JEWELS ON THE 7TH LINE DOWN!?!?
I’m excited to see Cage the Elephant since I missed it last time because my stupid cousin can’t stupid plan anything cause he’s stupid and I hate him and I’m still bitter. Just kidding, Stephen.
Remember when Foster the People headlined Sunday night a couple years ago? That was awkward, eh? Hey… at least they’re not headlining this time.
Okay that was a lot of cynicism, but I actually am excited for this festival. Notables about whom I have nothing sarcastic to say:
Tickets will presumably go on sale again when the lineup is released.
