So, we figured now would be an appropriate to time open things up, take a stab at these hints (see our thoughts in red), and provide you an area to voice your hopes and predictions.

As it stands now, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, and Beastie Boys look to be this year’s headliners, while The Mars Volta, TV on the Radio, and Midnite are three names currently independently confirmed.
