The first day, headlined by (somewhat surprisingly) , has a lineup that leans toward stuff with dancey electronic influences: , , Flying , , , , , , , , , and . headline the second day, which is way heavier on guitars, bass, and drums. , , the , and the Jicks, , , , , Thee , Weekend, , and will all play.

This year’s choices of and won’t be enough to change that sentiment but the other talent on the lineup would be great to catch on that floating enclave in the middle of the Bay.
