Just bought my ticket. $100 for a two day festival with that mid-tier and undercard? Yes please. I'm hoping the schedule doesn't pit too many of the great acts against each other though.
I fucked up badly last year at Roo by missing CHVRCHES, so they were what really sold me on this. But Alt-J, Ben Howard, Chromeo, Band of Horses, War on Drugs, Lord Huron, and Daughter certainly helped too.

It seems like my reasoning was the same as the rest of you. Saw this on twitter like 7 minutes ago, and now I have a ticket. Didn't even know who besides the Strokes and Chvrches was on the lineup and don't care...
Last 10: Alabama Shakes, Sturgill Simpson, Nathaniel Rateliff, Lillie Mae, K. Flay, Judah & the Lion, Beach Slang, WSMFP, Run the Jewels, Spoon Next 10: New Politics, Queen w/ AL, Phish, Outside Lands, Lock'n, Meadows, Against Me!, Voodoo, A Perfect Circle, Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Strokes alt-j Band of Horses George Ezra Lord Huron Houndmouth Daughter The Hunts
Chvrches Ben Howard Chromeo The War on Drugs Nate Ruess The Kills Twin Shadow The Lone Bellow Dr John The Mowglis
All of the above are draws for me. Top tier are bands I really want to see. Second tier are bands I've seen a few times but still like or just wouldn't mind catching at a festival.
Not bad for $100. Plus in a cool location.
You probably already know them but check out Avers (if you don't). They've been making a regional splash as of late and I think up your alley. I know it's a Head And The Heart side project ( I wanna say the drummer) and really good live.
