Not a bad lineup, but there are more bands I am excited to see at Sasquatch. The headliners are definitely more buzz-worthy, but if attendance really is 80k, it's not like I'd have the dedication to get close enough to enjoy them anyways. Knowing I can spend my morning/early afternoon drinking in the camp site, my day stage hopping and still set up shop on the hill if I choose to for the headliner, is a huge part of what makes Sasquatch enjoyable.
If only the lineup was 'real', it'd be perfect, huh? Something something Brass something something something indie rock something where it needs to be derp.
yeah. it's not a bad lineup. there are certainly good acts in there... but there's nothing in there that moves me. Most of those acts are either bands I've either already seen or will see at Sasquatch this year. the only acts that really interest me are Primus and Big Boi - and my interest in both of them is barely above lukewarm.
i'm truly happy for those out there who are moved by this lineup... but honestly (and without *much* bias) - i still like our lineup more.
I'd rank 2011's lineups so far as such: 1. Primavera 2. Coachella 3. Sasquatch 4. Bonnaroo
edit - *much*

Yeah, too much work. Coachella was almost too much work for me. That's one of the reasons I like sasquatch so much, you can do as much or as little work as you want to.
The organization at Bonnaroo is impeccable. Easily the best out of any major festival I've been to. Although, their true crowning achievement is the FOOD. Obviously shitty, but very delicious shitty food with a wide variety of vendors. For cheaps too!
