Last week, the Big Gig dropped a big surprise in the middle of an otherwise mundane week, announcing a heap of grounds stage headliners last Wednesday. An even bigger surprise? Everybody – from millennials to hipsters to grey-hairs and everybody in between – seems to agree that the lineup is pretty strong. Agreement? On the internet?! Impossible!

Anyways, the Big Gig went to work this morning filling in the details in its schedule, starting with the headliner lineup for the Miller Lite Oasis, which fill feature Top 40 hitmakers like Alesso, Marshmello, Kesha, Chromeo, Foster the People, Fastball (hey, "The Way" was a number one hit on the U.S. Alternative charts back in the day!) and more.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
