Wakarusa announced the first part of its 2014 lineup this morning.
Wakarusa just announced the first slate of artists for this year's festival (June 5-8) and it is a very familiar-looking roster. Not that there's anything wrong with that necessarily, nor would most folks expect a huge shakeup for the jam-friendly fest. Among the headliners announced so far: STS9, Umphrey's McGee, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lettuce, Dr. Dog, Papadosio, Cherub, BoomBox and DJ Snake.
There are also still two lineup announcements to go. Anybody wanna venture any guesses on who else might be there? While we're making predictions, any ideas what the weather will do this year? The last three have seen everything from scorching heat to frigid rain to lightning storms and who knows what else. Seems like we're due for a weekend of sunny and highs in the upper 70s, right?
After the jump is the full list of bands announced this morning, culled from the clever video announcing the lineup. It is also included and naturally stars a Sasquatch in need of an intervention.
