As an entire lineup pretty meh, but some artists Id love to see (The 1975, Gambino, Interpol, Kings Of Leon)
Speaking of The 1975, I'm seeing them at a mall on Saturday, which is a few minutes away from my home.

Lolla's 2012 line-up was stellar, mainly cuz of At the Drive-In and Black Sabbath haha. 2012 was a great festival year, especially Warped Tour

Arctic Monkeys are a great 2nd headliner (main support). They sold out Madison Square Garden a few times already. They have a fan base but they just aren't that big of name. I think they're one good album away from headliner status.
Yeah right now they are perfect for a sub headliner spot.
They only headlined MSG once, it was last month. I was there it was an amazing show.
To put into perspective how recent their rise in popularity was: they just headlined MSG (17k ppl, sold out); prior to that there last headlining shows in NY were at Webster Hall (3k ppl, sold out), Central Park Summerstage (5k ppl, not sold out) and Music Hall (550 ppl, sold out).

Following this pattern I'd say your right, one more solid album and they'll be headlining every festival in a couple years.

I'm honestly over the Outkast reunion. Officially does nothing for me.

Downtown Chicago is going to be terrible that weekend. I may just have to work from home to avoid this like the plague.

Yeah my fault. I thought they headlined MSG more than once but they just opened for The Black Keys. Yeah looking at the venues they played, they've been all over in the NYC area on a steady increase. People know the name but only their fans know the songs. They need that casual fan appeal to put them over the top. No pressure on them but their next album will be make or break.
