1.Modest Mouse- One of my absolute favorite bands, even though I have my doubts about them being their because they have played Sasquatch for the past couple years. 2.MGMT-everyone keeps talking about their dance music, but their slower music is good as well 3.TV on the Radio- I am totally obsessed.

Peter, bjorn and john is a good start. passion pit is pretty good. but I want some big names, mostly the band of horses, maybe the shins, MGMT, Spoon, i wouldn't mind seeing the lips again, incubus? radiohead? NIN? I really have no idea.... There's not all that many possibilities out there.
I thought MGMT would be back in the studio this year, but alas they are playing Bonnaroo. Since they were heavily rumoured to be at Sasquatch last year, and also canceled their performance at Pemberton, I think (and hope) that they will be there.
And yeah..what's up with everyone saying MGMT dance party? The vast majority of their catalogue is much more psychedelic/dream pop than dance music. Though they only really have 2 or 3 hit songs I still think they could be billed 3rd or 4th on the mainstage. I'd be interested to see how their music translates live.
