Guessing My Morning Jacket’s plan to take over Forecastle

My Morning Jacket has already been announced as the Saturday night headliner and curating-assistants of the 2012 Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY. The next round of bookings is scheduled to be announced soon, and LEO Weekly was wondering what a potential MMJ FF might look like. Based on previous covers, collaborations, conversations, friends, labels, tours and such only-so-scientific data, LEO has analyzed MMJ’s historical patterns and deduced that such a festival might – assuming that there is only one stage, as scheduling multiple, overlapping sets is not our strong suit – look something vaguely like this:

12 p.m. Old Baby
1 p.m. Good Girl
2 p.m. Anders Parker
3 p.m. Centro-matic
4 p.m. Laura Veirs
5 p.m. Dr. Dog
6 p.m. Calexico
7 p.m. Andrew Bird
8 p.m. M. Ward
9 p.m. Bright Eyes
10 p.m. Eddie Vedder
11 p.m. Bon Iver

12 p.m. Workers
1 p.m. Lydia Burrell
2 p.m. Cortney Tidwell
3 p.m. The Ravenna Colt
4 p.m. The Louisville Leopard Percussionists
5 p.m. The Muppets
6 p.m. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
7 p.m. VHS Or Beta
8 p.m. Kool and the Gang
9 p.m. Erykah Badu
10 p.m. My Morning Jacket

12 p.m. Silver Tongues
1 p.m. Whistle Peak
2 p.m. The Fervor
3 p.m. Scott Carney
4 p.m. Ben Sollee
5 p.m. Jimmie Dale Gilmore
6 p.m. Son Volt
7 p.m. John Prine
8 p.m. Neko Case
9 p.m. Wilco
10 p.m. Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Bobby Womack
Foo Fighters
Jack White
Sly & the Family Stone
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
The Who

Again, please note that this is a purely speculative, music lovers’ game of Guess Who (though we feel safe predicting that Canadian classic rockers The Guess Who will be overlooked this year). We will surely be wrong about probably 89% of the lineup (at least), but hey, if we are right, this could be fun, eh?

And please add your thoughts in the comments section!

    I might add Fruit Bats, Shabazz Palaces, Tune-Yards, Delta Spirit and Head and the Heart.
