I’m beyond excited for this year’s and already reserved my spot for the first weekend. This year’s lineup is a doozy, too. They’ve got The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, Katy Perry, Jimmy Buffett, Van Morrison, Al Green, Santana and even Pitbull!

Other LIVE favorites like The Revivalists, Leon Bridges, Herbie Hancock, Gary Clark, Jr., Ziggy Marley, Tank and the Bangas, Galactic, Los Lobos, Kamasi Washington — wow, this list just keeps on going — will all be there, too. Can’t wait to see some Anders Osborne, Little Feat, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, North Mississippi Allstars, Dumpstaphunk, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and dang man even the Doobie Brothers have some time on stage.

They seriously went all out for this year’s big one. Check out the full lineup on the poster below. Wow. Can’t. Wait.

UPDATE: there have been a few lineup adjustments since the initial post was published at press time. Bob Seger is no longer performing, but Diana Ross is. Not a bad trade.

The Rolling Stones definitely sold-out quickly as well, who will be playing Thursday, May 2nd.

This is really going to be an incredible year.
