The deal with Red Sky Music Festival

Concertgoers at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago in 2010.

By now, you’re probably aware of the Red Sky Music Festival, a six-day fest going down in July at Omaha’s TD Ameritrade ballpark and the surrounding parking lots. (If you’re not familiar, read this.)

And if you’re like any of the many people who have called, e-mailed and tweeted me about it, you probably want to know who’s playing.

Originally, the festival lineup (at least the six headliners) was supposed to be announced in mid-February. That deadline has obviously passed.

So, what’s going on? What’s the holdup?

Basically, this is a joint venture between MECA and Live Nation. That means it takes approval by Live Nation and MECA’s board of directors to approve anything. And they’re not letting out a peep without making sure every little thing is nailed down first.

My guess? They know who the headliners are. But they’re not saying a word until everyone’s got signed contracts and approvals on their desks.

But stay tuned for the next few weeks. We’ll have something in our hot little hands sometime in March.

My question: Who do you want to see? And, being realistic, who do you think will perform?
