Awesome City Limits

Instead of having Perry Farrell comparing lineup leakers to skunks...
“My initial reaction? Well… this guy, he’s a stinker, so it was kind of like having a skunk at the party. So what do we do? Well, I think we should make him the stinky mascot. That’s what I’m going to do. Pepe LePew,” he hissed.
...ACL took a turn for the better and offered festival fans a glimpse at 29 of the 130 acts that will play this year in form of a mashup courtesy of Car Stereo (Wars), and the results are dandy.
Here is what we have been able to decipher:
  • Man Man
  • Jamie Lidell
  • Eli Reed
  • Neko Case
  • Kate Nash
  • Hot Chip
  • Octopus Project
  • Okkervil River
  • Del the Funky Homosapien
  • Silversun Pickups
  • NERD
  • Gnarls Barkley
  • Raconteurs
  • MGMT
  • Heartless Bastards
  • Robert Earl Keen
  • Car Stereo Wars
  • Antibalas
  • Tegan and Sara
  • Sharon Jones and The DapKings
  • Duffy
  • Kings of Leon
  • Ingrid Michaelson
  • Manu Chao
  • Black Joe Lewis
  • The Thrills
  • Joe Jackson
  • Asleep at the Wheel
Pearl Jam is being rumored to be one of the headliners as well as Rage Against the Machine. Looking good...

RATM would be excellent, but it's not looking likely.

I think this is a very solid start. I am really hoping they add the Black Keys, I feel that's pretty likely. A festival with both the Keys and KoL is pretty strong. I think I would be partial to Pearl Jam...

I'm pretty sure that Pearl Jam is out of the question. I heard that they were confirmed, but Eddie Vedder now has a baby on the way, forcing the band to cancel.
