Elvis Costello would be amazing!
The Presets would be awesome too. As would Ladytron/Datarock.
you know, its true--this is the year that needs to be incredible. i loved last year, but i can't imagine it was a particular financial success. APW bombed last year, and that's why they got radiohead this time, isn't it?
Ummm... APW is new festival. It is being put on by Goldenvoice, the organizers of Coachella. So no, APW did not bomb last year.

Local fellas the Lonely H may be there...
May 14 2008 Port Angeles, Washington @ Peninsula College May 26 2008 Port Angeles, Washington @ Juan de Fuca Festival May 28 2008 Billings, Montana @ Garage Pub May 31 2008 Red Lodge, Montana @ Snow Creek Saloon
They could sneak in a Sept. 24th or 25th show in between Port Townsend shows
- The Black Keys don't have a show booked after May 17th - My Morning Jacket is off between Coachella and Bonnaroo - Two Gallants are doing a couple of shows in Europe with the National and should be back in the US in time for the festival - Ben Folds has all of May open as of right now - The back-end of May is free for the Decemberists - I wouldn't count on the Foo Fighters as they go from Austrailia to Europe in May... it'd be a strange layover to drop by the Gorge on the way
I've gone ahead and made a list of the bands I think have a good shot at playing Sasquatch. I've spent a ton of time searching other festival sites and tour dates looking for clues because i cannot wait 6 more days for the announcement! (plus it is just fun to guess...and dream).
Headliners: The Cure (Sunday), R.E.M. (Saturday or Monday), and Pearl Jam or Eddie Vedder solo??(Saturday or Monday)
Mainstage: Death Cab, Modest Mouse, Gang of Four, The Raconteurs, The Breeders, M.I.A., Cat Power (yes, I am aware she is playing Primavera Sound), My Morning Jacket, Tegan & Sara, Cold War Kids, The Cops, Jose Gonzalez, Galactic, Gogol Bordello, Band of Horses, Built to Spill, New Pornos (mayyyyyybe because Destroyer is rumoured and Neko Case has been at the last 2 fests), Rilo Kiley
Yeti stage (or whatever the small one is called): Vampire Weekend (also playing Primavera but they seem to be the "festival buzz band" of 2008), Gutter Twins, Destroyer, Shout Out Louds (i realllly hope), The Cave Singers, Jens Lekman, !!!, Fleet Foxes, Dave Bazan, 65 Days of Static, Heavenly States, The National, The Long Blondes, Josh Morrison, MGMT, Devon Williams, Siberian, Kay Kay and the Weathered Underground, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings (another one playing many fests), Dan Deacon, Battles, The Cinematic Orchestra, Manchester Orchestra, The Bees, Mark Kozelek, Yoav, The Avett Brothers.
May be a little too optimistic but (as far as I can tell) none of the afformentioned bands have any conflicts. The rumour of the Comedy Tent makes me think that there will only be two music stages this year, which also makes it easier to fill a 3 day festival with quality bands. My list is a little short on mainstage bands (and a few of my guesses may not even be considered big enough for the mainstage). Lets hope that means there are some more big surprises to come.
Finally...I don't believe we will be seeing Kanye West, NERD, Lupe Fiasco, Ben Folds (plays 4 washington shows in april), Ladyton and Datarock (won't play seattle, vancouver, sasquatch, then san francisco on consecutive nights unfortunatly), obviously no Radiohead or Jack Johnson, Iron & Wine (possibly in Europe still), Justice (in the Netherlands a few days later), New Young Pony Club (are in the UK on may 25th), The Black Lips (are in the UK till at least may 15th), The Black Keys (look like they will be on the east coast by then).
All in all, it'll be tough to beat the 2006 lineup, but by the looks of things Sasquatch! 2008 should come close.
I honestly don't see the Cops main staging it. And I really would expect Gogol Bordello to close out one of the smaller stages. Keep in mind there's two, Wookie and Yeti, one being pretty much local bands only. I'd expect Siberian, Kay Kay, The Cops and Built to Spill all to hit that stage at one point or another. Although B2S could easily play early mainstage.
Actually, there's not nearly enough local bands on that lineup. I'd expect to see Mnomena (sp), Aqudecut, Tapes n Tapes, Speaker Speaker, Man Down Medic, the winner of EMP's sound off, whoever it should be, Fall of Troy etc. I mean, not all of those, but some.
I think the comedy tent may take the place of some of the mini arcades they had. Especially with it being a tent, I can't imagine them pulling a stage for that.

Saw on "The Consequence Of Sound" message board that Weezer is rumored @ "Quatch"??? I know it's probably just someone throwing names cause Weezer.com has no new news on their upcoming album or touring?
