This one is going to ROCK! I'm not usually a fan of festival/all day concerts but it's hard to resist this lineup for me:

TOOL
Gogol Bordello
Widespread Panic
The Black Keys
Gomez
Buddy Guy
Gov't Mule
Matisyahu

Some of my favorites to see live!!

I saw Gogol Bordello in Lawrence, KS on Halloween a couple years ago. AMAZING performance. The energy at their shows is intense. The song in the link below was a highlight for me:

"Forces of Victory"

It's like Slayer on polka.
