Sigur Ros is out according to someone at Roo who emailed them. We contacted Cut Copy a long time ago and were told they're mostly just recording this year and at least not doing Roo.'
Yeah, finding out a headliner is doubtful. I'm mainly contacting mid range and smaller acts for that reason. I was able to confirm Foster the People for Roo though, and that's a pretty big name. The names I report back to you are just a fraction of who I've contacted. I think a manager/agent just ignoring my email is much more likely than them telling me no and that not being the truth. Still take the denials with some hesitancy though, as maybe a few of the names will pop up on lineup day.
"There is a pedophile farmer with one leg from my tiny hometown. He raped some kids his wife babysat. Now my dad shakes his hand in church."
Probably. I saw someone on the Sasquatch blog that he talked to Justin Vernon after a Bon Iver show who basically confirmed it too (obviously take that with a grain of salt considering it's an anonymous comment on the internet).
So who else thinks that the 'Fake' Coachella Lineup is really really good? The only thing that makes me no believe it is the fact that Bin Iver is ranked so mid range on the second day. Doesn't make any sense to me, logistically.
