No, not really.

Are people ever going to stop getting hung up on the name? Like in 30 years, is Ottawa still going to complain about lawn chairs and the name.

I hope she just plays her hits and doesn't do a bunch of deep tracks off the new album.

Jimmy Eat World announced a festival show in Niagara on June 29th, their first NA tour date this year. Seems they will be in the area for Bluesfest only a few days later.

Six to eight weeks earlier than usual. I always wondered why it took so long for Monahan and company to release the initial lineup, although I understand there are some scheduling issues. But then, festivals like Bonnaroo, Forecastle (in Louisville), Newport, etc. tend to release their early and most bands tend to do the festival circuit.

Anyway, I'm excited to see the preliminary lineup on Wednesday.

No headliners yet for opening night or the second Saturday.

Cheaper tickets. Full festival pass is $195 for early birds, $249 full price.

Three-day($99)and five-day($149) passes are available this year as well.

The lineup looks quite good. A mix of genres and many musicians that I enjoy and follow (e.g., Sharon Van Etten, Belle & Sebastian, Passion Pit, Neko Case). The Wu-Tang Clan would be interesting to see.

I am thankful they have dropped the price, but this line up is only marginally better than last years. Music is in a pretty pathetic state these days.

I disagree. The past five to ten years has been great for music, as long as you're not relying on the radio as your main source. The internet has allowed for a lot of musicians and bands to share their music, and if you take the time you can find excellent stuff.

I actually think the lineup is significantly better than last year. While the Headliners are decent to good, it's the other acts that make this year's Bluesfest much stronger.

Yes the radio stuff is what I am referring to primarily. This is in many ways your prototypical live 88.5 lineup which I can no longer listen to as it is dominated by over produced electron pop rock and relics of the 90s that didn't age well.

Come to think of it, I didn't hear a single good new album in 2012 (from the internet world).

I thought the Lumineers would be coming since they're performing at pretty much every festival.

Yeah, tons of great albums last year - Grizzly Bear, Sharon Van Etten, DIIV, Father John Misty, Japandroids, King Tuff, Tame Impala, Foxygen (EP), and many, many others.
