Right - which is why I have it under "basically confirmed" and not "Confirmed" - until next week, it is all conjecture anyways. I say that if the tour dates add up, if they fit the general music stylings of Sasquatch (indie, hip hop), then it is a safe guess, but you are probably right.
I got the Beruit info from this blog - From Blown Speakers (http://itcameoutmagical.blogspot.com/) It says: Zach Condon makes his first visit to Vancouver on May 22nd when Beirut plays the Ballroom. (note: real close to Sasquatch)

Also: Dustin, I saw on CoS that you doubted that Fall of Troy and The Dear Hunter seemed more like Warp Tour bands... I have to concur. I thought when I saw those names that they probably wouldn't be a good fit. Plus,
you can maybe add 'the kooks' to the list of unconfirmed acts for sunday:
San Diego, CA House of Blues (May 18) Los Angeles, CA The Wiltern (19) San Francisco, CA The Fillmore (22) Vancouver, BC Commodore Ballroom (24) Portland, OR Wonder Ballroom (26) Salt Lake City, UT Avalon Theatre (28) Denver, CO Ogden Theatre (29) Minneapolis, MN Fine Line Music Café (31)

so about two weeks ago i received two mysterious emails from my pollstar.com autoupdates service: the first that the flaming lips are performing in quincy, wa (aka the gorge) on 5-27 and the second that nine inch nails is performing in quincy, wa on 5-26. seems pretty likely NIN would be a headliner, the lips on the other hand tend to run second usually. also seems pretty credible since they are both sasquatch veterans and the lips are playing other festivals this summer (10,000 lakes and bonnaroo). Also Trent Reznor has been hinting at some huge announcement on march 1st (nin.com) that many believe to be either the release date for a Year zero follow-up (which would be followed by a tour) or the long over-due US year zero tour itself.
