ACL Fest Lineup Leaks!

ACL Fest Rumors has revealed the bulk of the ACL Fest lineup for this year. My thoughts? Pretty good, but it's missing that spark of previous years. Go to the site to see the full list, but the leaked acts that interest me are:

Van Morrison
Jose Gonzales
The Raconteurs
Cat Power and the Memphis Rhythm Band
Secret Machines
Wolf Parade
Damien Rice (thank god I can see him this year without having to listen to Fiona Apple)
Aimee Mann
I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness…
Okkervil River (didn't we establish that Shearwater are in NYC that weekend?)
Explosions in the Sky (my brother will be jealous about this one)

Add to that the previously confirmed Flaming Lips, Shins, Iron & Wine, Calexico, New Pornographers, Ted Leo, Son Volt, Centro-matic, Ben Kweller, Marah, and you've got a pretty nice lineup.

Still, though, if the grid causes any serious conflicts, then the list starts to narrow, and things get a little dicey. So, unless there's still some more surprises, personally, count me only as a probably maybe [Especially now that I don't have to go to Austin for good BBQ]. Keep your eye on this space when the grids come out for possible tickets for sale.
