If they do it right it could help tilt the quality of the mainstage in the right direction this year, don't hold out much hope though.
That's what I'm hoping. Would be nice to get some decent sized bands that people have actually heard of in those slots. Bands like Lost Society and Orange Goblin would probably be the right size for those slots and are actually bands that people have mentioned previously. We can only hope!
Also, there's still the Thursday night headliner to come which could be fairly decent sized band
