As we reminded you last week, the organizers of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass are once again unveiling the festival lineup as a kind of quiz, by posting medleys of this year's performers online and letting fans take a guess. With two sets of song clips out now -- and the official answers posted on the HSB website -- we've got a solid chunk of the Hardly Strictly 2012 lineup to check out.

Spoiler alert: If you want to guess who's playing by listening to the music, listen to the audio samples. Below is a list of the the artists we now know are playing Hardly Strictly 2012:


The Del McCoury Band
Jerry Douglas
Steve Earle & The Dukes (and Duchesses)
O'Brien Party of 7
Giant Giant Sand
Rubblebucket
Ralph Stanley & The Clinch Mountain Boys
Dirty Three
Red Baraat
The Head and The Heart
Buddy Miller
Patterson Hood & the Downtown Rumblers
Chris Robinson Brotherhood
Laurie Lewis & the Right Hands
Elvis Costello Solo
Glen Hansard
Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express
Lloyd Cole
Peter Rowan
Dwight Yoakam

Looks good to us -- we're excited for Lloyd Cole, Rubblebucket, and Chuck Prophet especially. Remember: there are still two more song medleys to go, and who knows how many more artists to be added to the lineup. Hardly Strictly 2012 runs this Oct. 5-7 in Golden Gate Park, and is, of course, totally free.
