You’ve seen the lineup. You’ve probably got your tickets. Now, it’s time to map out a plan of exactly who to see at Wakarusa 2012.

The stage schedule, featuring specific times and locations for over 100 performances is now available on Jambase.

Music starts at noon on Thursday, May 31 with War Chief on the George’s Majestic Lounge Backwoods stage.

The only Fayetteville band we’ve spotted on the line this year is Waka Winter Classic winner, Cadillac Jackson.

Weir, Robinson, & Green Acoustic Trio and Pretty Lights headline the main stage on Thursday night. On Friday, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and The Avett Brothers headline, and Umphrey’s McGee and Primus are the Saturday night headliners.

There are late-night dance parties near the main stage area with Quixotic on Thursday, Girl Talk on Friday, and Big Gigantic on Saturday night.

We’re excited to see Blitzen Trapper, and they’ll be in the Revival Tent at 8 p.m. on Saturday, which is the same time as the Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zero’s show on the main stage. Tough choice.

Heartless Bastards are playing around that same time on Saturday the Backwoods stage, but they’re also performing on Thursday night on the Outpost stage.

Those are our initial observations. See any dilemmas of your own?
