I'd love to see HOF have Phish or even better Furthur, but I don't see the city being happy about that. The city has made it very clear about their interest in keeping it family friendly and for lack of a better phrase "no wooks."
"It was a conditional commitment with the council having to approve the festival’s plans each year and having the ability to pull the plug if it strayed too far from the city’s family-friendly image."
Expect Jack Johnson arena faux-folk indie blugrass bullshit band(s) Country and/or Panhandle rock acts
You can forget about them getting Phish or Furthur. Or ANY metal, punk, hard rock acts. Best case scenario is if they get Neil Young & Crazy Horse and Vampire Weekend. That seems even less likely now though.
