    They should do Grave Dancer's Union back to front so the set ends strong.

    I wouldn't attend those even for the "people watching" aspect because it is probably so depressing.

    this one is amazing, the crowd seems to consist of one person(?) in a neck brace:

    this is a stellar shot:

    and the organizers speak
    "The festival went very well," said Alex Blackshire, event coordinator at MO events, which produced the festival. "The crowd was small for the first year ... but the layout was perfect, the space design was wonderful, we had VIP tents, cold beer and no incidents, no drug overdoses, no emergency calls, none of that. So it was really good fun."
    "I'm happy as a first-year festival" with this turnout, he said. "We did not lose anything. It was a good first festival. We profited, but not too much over" what we spent.

    My lists of who I like and who I'd see at a festival are different. I'm a pretty big Sky Ferreira fan, but I wouldn't be surprised if she fell flat on a hot day at 4 pm. I'd absolutely see Foo Fighters kick out the jams on the main stage, even though I haven't cared about that band in over a decade.

    Here's who I'd try to see (not necessarily kmac-centric recommendations):

    Dave Grohl & the Shit-Eating Grins
    Arctic Monkeys (dunno much of their material, just seems like they'd be good live)
    Tegan and Sara
    Grouplove
    Sleigh Bells (not a fan, but a festival band if ever there was one)
    Airborne Toxic Event (i like one song, plus they seem like a solid band)
    Ms Mr
    Washed Out
    Sky Ferreira (fingers crossed)
    Haerts

    I've heard of basically zero artists in the bottom half of the lineup.

    Ms Mr, Washed Out & Haerts are new to me from your list, will check out.

    T&S i've never seen live and will probably enjoy. Airborne Toxic i caught at Metro a few years back as someone's +1 and actually enjoyed, having no expectations. i expect grouplove to be similar, people seem to earnestly enjoy them, and not in such an annoying way as some of the other bands listed above 'em on that list.
    last time arctic monkeys played a lolla i went to i used their set for beer-getting.

    little daylight i've heard of, and i think i like a song or 2 of theirs. but not little comet, i don't know them, and i wish little dragon were playing instead.

    i've met a-trak. he has a dead fish handshake.

    One of their tunes is the Portlandia intro song, if that helps.

    Sky Ferreira was actually a highlight for me at P4K last year. That was probably a smaller venue but it was pretty close to 4pm.

    I would see Chance the Rapper but I've not the slightest idea how he does live.

    Vic Mensa has made one of my favourite songs this year, and I enjoyed his work on the Chance the Rapper tape.

    I love Chance so would say he's worth seeing too, though I've never seen him live before.

    Little Daylight make yancy's jukebox-esque music.

    Jezabels, Courtney Barnett, Kite String Tangle and Vance Joy are all Australian acts. I'm not a huge fan of any, but if I had to pick one to see of those four it'd be Barnett.

    I've never heard Pretty Lights but they seem to headline every tier 2 festival in this country.
