Considering the lackluster hip-hop presence at sasquatch last year, There could be more incentive for Snacks to up the ante (or not at all). If so, Atmosphere could be a logical act to snag. From here until May they only have one tour date in March which is Cape Town...
not that it matters but Atmosphere actually have like 5 dates in February all over Minnesota. I think they'd be a great addition to the lineup.
Unfortunately, based on the stuff that leaked today, there is going to be an expanded hip hop lineup, it's just going to be almost exclusively Seattle groups. I'm hoping there will be more added but if they're booking 15 local rap acts, they may not want to spend real money on national ones. Who knows though
I'm still wondering about that...if they actually do have a new stage why on Earth would they opt for the punny "Maine Stage" title? Wouldn't that just cause a lot of unneccessary confusion with the Sasquatch main stage and some other "Maine" stage elsewhere...?
I mean it's not a hugely complicated concept to wrap your mind around but it's just odd.
If it turns out to be a hip hop centric stage thatd be great, though. I'd love to see some Azealia Banks, Death Grips, Mr. Muthafuckin Exquire, Danny Brown, or Doomtree.. but really, the best thing they could do would be getting in on the Company Flow reunion. Or at least grabbing Aesop Rock.

New adds to Primavera:
"Today, the festival revealed the rest of its 2012 bill and new highlights include Refused, Rufus Wainwright, Beirut, Chavez, The Pop Group, Atlas Sound, Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten, The Rapture, Wavves, Danny Brown, Black Lips, Lee Ranaldo, Hype Williams, Kings of Convenience, Archers of Loaf, Dirty Three, The Wedding Present (performing Seamonsters) Girls, Real Estate, The War on Drugs, Saint Etienne, Richard Hawley, Iceage, Japandroids, Thee Oh Sees, Death Grips, Trash Talk, Bleached, Friends, Dirty Beaches, Lower Dens, The Field, Field Music, and Obits"
Since we are more than likely getting Beirut, Araabmuzik, The War on Drugs and possibly SBTRKT it would be amazing to see Rufus make the sasquatch lineup too.
