We totally guess the final headliner of North Coast Music Fest

Written by

Last week, North Coast Music Festival announced its lineup. Well, almost all of it. The name at the top of the bill was not revealed. Today, the jam-electro-rap-friendly fest dropped a hint as to who that act might be with the image above. Fans can take a stab on Instagram and winners will receive a four-pack of tickets. We are here to help you cheat. Countless band images pass by our eyes each day. We rule out Modest Mouse and Umphrey's McGee—both six-pieces. These are our best educated guesses at the quintet.

1) Moe.

It's gotta be a jam band, right? The height distribution seems spot on here. 

2) Incubus

Remember these guys? They're on tour again. They're here in late July, but their tour wraps up at the end of August.

3) STS9

Another regular. However, the Sound Tribe played last year.

4) The Decemberists

No Chicago festival dates this summer, which feels odd. However, the silhouettes seem all wrong, hair wise.

5) The Goonies

Chunk, Data, Mouth, Mikey and Sloth. Hey, it's the 30th anniversary—you never know!
