I wonder when this insider says that two of th ebands are repeat headliners, does that mean that they have headlined before? or have just been to Sasquatch before as a sub headliner. That would at least open up the possibilities of other bands (Like MMJ, modest mouse, etc...
Because other than Arcade Fire and the Flaming lips, and Beck I guess, I wouldn't be impressed by any other headliners (especially NIN, whom I saw at Pemberton last year - and enjoyed, I just don't like their music enough to want to see the light show again).
IMO, if the headliners are really like these insiders claim, Sasquatch will look embarrassing compared to Coachella and Bonnaroo. If Coachella can pull McCartney and Bonnaroo can get Springsteen, LN and Adam Snacks will look like huge d-bags if they can only pull "2 return headliners, and a reunion that most won’t care about".
That being said, I will still be attending SQ09 regardless of who headlines. I just think that, as a faithful Sasquatch attendee, I will feel pretty let down if the headliners are NIN, Beastie Boys/Ben Harper, and Blur or something like that.
I'm inclined to be doubtful about this recently surfaced insider information though, since Sasquatch is trying to muscle into the festival limelight previously reserved for Coachella and Bonnaroo exclusively. I have a hard time believing that LN and AZ would settle for two headliners that are already subheadlining another festival (NIN and Beastie Boys)
i could dig a reunion like blur, but neverhood has the most important point--why should we care what felix says? who is felix? i could have made a speculation just as general as his and i should hope it wouldn't get everyone all excited...i could have said "the headliners are KOL, a repeat headliner and a reunion act--and wait till you see who it is!" and everyone would be guessing great bands instead of disappointing ones?
