The lineup for 2011 was just announced, nearly a full day early here on the West Coast and the same day that Electric Forest announced their lineup. Some fans may consider a tough choice between the two festivals, but not me and about 50 other friends out here in California. is an obvious choice as it is, but with headlining the 21st annual festival and , , Warren Haynes, , and more joining them for the weekend, it seems even that much more obvious where I’ll be headed.

Here’s the initial list of artists scheduled to attend:

Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk

Bill Frisell’s Beautiful Dreamers

The Travelin’ McCourys

Audio Angel
and many more TBA…
