Some of the other names include: Icelandic folk-pop outfit Of Monsters and Men, sure to be a hit with the mustache/skinny suspenders/vest/little hat crowd (they're "the new Arcade Fire," according to Rolling Stone); Canuck electro duo Zeds Dead; laid-back reggae-inspired bro jam band Rebelution; alt-country stalwarts Son Volt; bluegrass perennials Yonder Mountain String Band; and many more.

The next lineup announcements will be made Jan. 10 and Jan. 17. You can read the full list of bands announced so far after the jump.
