With the long-awaited reveal of the Spring Weekend lineup tomorrow, I wanted to find out who BlogDH was crossing their fingers and praying to the BCA gods for. Some are going big (it’s our 250th Anniversary, after all) while others are feeling more
hipster obscure, but in the end we all just want to know, who will it be? Check out the trends below. (Personally, I’m putting my money on The xx, Arctic Monkeys, or Beach House, but if Fleetwood Mac or Kanye West come out, I may or may not fangirl.) –Naiyah Ambros
