I've been thinking about Ben Harper as a possibility too. I didn't post anything about it because I really hope it isn't true. I enjoyed him in '06, but once is enough. And he hasn't put out any decent music since then.
I'd say Ben Harper is more likely than Beastie Boys. Either way I'll probably be in the dance tent that night.
^^^ this is very true. Though I sometimes forget the Lips technically didn't headline in 2006. Now that I think about it, there's no way they'd have Ben Harper and NIN both headline again three years later. I'd say maybe one repeat headliner, but no way there are 2 repeats.

As was mentioned earlier, I am starting to believe certain bands might be too big for Sasquatch. When Radioheadines a festival, it is usually to an enormous crowd and in warm weather. I am not sure they would commit to Sasquatch. Best case scenario, they get great weather, and play to 20,000. It is more likely the wind blowing ruins their stage set up, they are all cold, and walk off the stage.
I can't imagine bands who have played the Gorge would dislike a return. It is probably the best music venue in the country. This is why I believe return headliners are more likely. Why not come back? You had a blast the first time, so did we.
I'm starting to think MBV is more and more likely. Though they are playing Primavera, they will probably headline the last day, which gives them lots of time to make a Sasquatch appearance. I still don't believe that guy though...
This is probably nothing, but the White Stripes are playing Conan on February 20th for his last ever show on Late Night (before he takes over The Tonight Show). Perhaps they might be interested in embarking on a tour after that if Meg is ok to play? Perhaps a one off Sasquatch headlining spot? Yeah I know this is purely speculation and wishful thinking, but a boy can dream can't he?
