My tech friend just enlightened me. He said that since they usually announce the lineup the first week in Feb, it would make sense to have URL's created and ready in order to have a solid launch, that they're all created but just not loaded yet....

Going back and looking at the Hangout's FB page, there really wasn't much going on until they posted about announcing the lineup. They had two posts between Jan 1st and the announcement day/night around feb. 7/8.
If you a similar timeline is used we should hear soon in a little over two weeks.
IMO Soundgarden would be a headliner. They headlined Voodoo, so I think they'd headline Hangout.
And since we are talking about the EDM tent, I'd once again like to give props to Hangout for the HUGE improvement in quality of experience in the EDM tent last year over the previous year. The sound in the EDM tent was incredible, hell we were standing way outside the tent for Skrillex and it was coming through loud and clear. Big dance party out there.
I feel similarly to everyone else about Dylan. The guy is a legend, and anyone who sees him live can't help but get the "Bob Dylan Effect", which is that feeling during a Bob Dylan show when you are like "holy crap thats Bob fracking Dylan up there." But, it seems like of the live music fans I know who go see Dylan, about 20% come away saying it was awesome, the other 80% varying shades of meh.
I'm a much bigger Dylan fan, but I admit I'd take Petty over Dylan when it comes to a live show today. The Heartbreakers killed it at JF last year, a real rock show.
Muse starts a European tour on the 22nd. Seeing that they don't take down all the lighting, ect for a headliner until fest closes on Sunday, I think its a bit of a stretch to think that they'll be at Hangout. They'd only have 2 days to really prepare. Look for them on Lolla's lineup though
