Ok, here's what people said last year:
Beck, whose new album rocks, Lenny Kravitz, who always seems to enjoy playing live, The Wailers because the music and the setting are a perfect match, and Al Green and Isaac Hayes because at least one of these guys should be there every year.

Foo Fighters (who have a new album out in June), Sammy Hagar (festival highlight in '99), Lucero & Cory Branan making a return, and Green Day puts on a hell of a live show ('98 music fest). A return appearance by Ozomatli would be much appreciated also.

Is Rance Allen still with us? I've checked out some of his stuff since seeing him frigging kill it in the "Wattstax" film. Dude sings like he's being exorcised ...

Big second to Calexico.
I'd add ... Antibalas, The Rebirth/Breakestra, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, Los Lobos, Black Keys, Toots and the Maytals or comparable reggae act.

P.S. Neil Young goes mighty fine with "locals only" back-up band Booker T. & the MGs.

Tom Waits. My Morning Jacket. Calexico. Neil Young. Howard Tate.

So, it looks like they did get at least a couple of requests - Staind and Booker T -
Foo Fighters played 2004, Beck has played before, Dave Matthews has played, Los Lobos and Ingram Hill I think have played.
My vote would have gone to The Secret Service - that would have brought everyone together!
