One measure of musical success is being invited to one of the premiere music fests in the U.S. Among the most established and prestigious, of course, are Bonnaroo, Coachella, and All Tomorrow's Parties, the latter having the added cred of being curated by a different hipster of the arts world every year.

We decided to tally up all the locals being picked up for gigs on the big stages around the country, and into Mexico--with one exception, SXSW has too many acts performing to list 'em all. If you're taking a festication in 2010, here are the familiar faces to look out for.
