The lineup for the 2008 Wakarusa Music Festival just got announced. Dang! Buckethead has two sets, including a late-night? Ozric Tentacles have confirmed visas??!?!?

This is actually a pretty eclectic-looking lineup to me, besides from the festival staples like The Flaming Lips and Keller Williams (not that there’s anything really wrong with those examples). They went out a limb in a couple spots and I’m sure it’ll make for an interesting fest this year. Read on for the full lineup announced. If you’re going, it’s June 5-8 and still in Lawrence, Kansas — remember to mind the local police.
