Sasquatch must have something up their sleve if it isn't Radiohead. And it better not be Jack Johnson! They know the festival market is getting quite competitive, and if they can grab another major headliner, then they will putting in a bid to become a major festival.
I am gonna bet either Pearl Jam or Tool. Niel Young would be amazing as well though.

If the Long Blondes are playing Seattle the 28th... I think that more confirms they will NOT be there.
I could see Kanye playing Saturday. But I hope not. Radiohead on Monday would be much, much better. If they do get Kanye though, I imagine both NERD and Lupe Fiasco will be there. Or at least one. My bet is that Rihana wouldn't play though.

So I saw on Radioheads website today that they have released the dates of eight shows in May that are mostly on the eastern seaboard and texas. That's all right and everything but it also gives about 10-15 more tentative locations for dates that they will do in August? What are they doing for the 2 and a half months in between. And for a band that says they want to be more carbon neutral, stopping a North American tour for that long to go overseas and then come back would be absured? Unless they plan to tour South America for almost a month and half?
If anyone is wondering about Kanye West at Sasquatch. It's basically a no go considering his tour schedule:
04-16 Seattle, WA - Key Arena *# 04-18 Sacramento, CA - ARCO Arena *# 04-19 San Jose, CA - HP Pavilion *# 04-20 San Diego, CA - San Diego Sports Arena *# 04-27 Denver, CO - Pepsi Center *# 05-01 Dallas, TX - Superpages.com Center *# 05-02 Woodlands, TX - Woodlands Pavilion *# 05-23 Chicago, IL - United Center *# 05-24 Minneapolis, MN - Target Center *# 05-27 Saskatoon, Saskatchewan - Credit Union Centre *# 05-29 Edmonton, Rexall Place *# 05-30 Calgary, Alberta - Pengrowth Saddledome *# 06-12 Manchester, TN - Bonnaroo *
He's in Minnesota on The Saturday which kills that date. There's no way he's subheadlining for the The Cure. Finally the problem with Monday is that he has to be in Saskatoon on Tuesday. Too far to travel in one day.
