Corcoran with another specualtion

Over at the Statesmen blog, Michael Corcoran has another speculation on who the headliners will be.
While I, personally, support his choices, Corcoran really seems to have nothing to base his speculation on.

Here is the meat:

Since most of the people going to ACL buy their tickets before a single act is named, there’s always a frenzy to find out asap who you just spent $120- $145 to see. But with this clarification about Attal’s adjective, it’s time to rule out U2, the Who, Pink Floyd and a Rolling Stones return to Zilker and start thinking more in terms of Bjork, White Stripes and Bob Dylan.

Yawn...ill leave early each night or just miss a date since like massive attack..White Stripes would play a houston show aroudn their ACL appearance

I'm still miffed about Radiohead, but I would die if Bjork came. I love that woman. I'd freak out about Bob Dylan and the White Stripes too.

I wouldn't rule out the who

For what it's worth, I heard from someone who knows someone at ACL that Bob Dylan is scheduled to play.

Bjork...seriously...shoot me. She's terrible.

Yeah, is acl going to give us refunds if they choose Bjork.

Bob Dylan is old news...As are the White Stripes and Bjork.

Sounds like ACL is really screwing the pooch on this one.

If that were actually the case I would be very happy.

I think this is more like a list of "maybes"

If that's the real list, then ACL can call it's lineup a blockbuster this year. However, I'll be shocked if this is anything more than some dude/dudette having fun creating a wishlist.

They way I see it is, there has to be a reason why the ticket prices went up...

Bigger Acts!!

Attal is also cutting costs this year by not printing tickets.

I bet this lineup is 75% correct with some additional headliner types to be added...
