While trying to research my last few headliner guesses tonight, I stumbled upon an interesting tidbit: this Thursday, Willie Nelson will be playing a show with Merle Haggard, and it seems he's completely skipping the PNW while he's on the west coast this spring.
I don't see him as being a name that would pop to mind for a Sasquatch headliner, but I wouldn't be against it either.

Don't count out The Cure, they announced on January 27th that they will be on the move in Latin America, I will never forget how Robert Smith did prayers for rain as a light rain fell to the main stage ,
That shit actually almost makes sense. 2 of the most famous weed smokers doing a Washington festival after legalization
And they did a song together on Willie's album last year (and he also did a track with Merle Haggard, who just happens to be wrapping up his own Canadian tour about a week before Sasquatch, and Jamey Johnson, who was at last year's fest).
Well, I totally just got sucked into the conspiracy theory rabbit hole that is the Ron Swanson Sasquatch video for the last two hours. I have to say there are quite a few "coincidences" for all the randomness that video appears to be.
Anyway, the most disturbing potential headliner (to me, at least) was from the "Gloria Robertson-Smith (deceased)" clue. About two weeks ago, Dr. Gloria R. Smith of Battle Creek, Michigan passed away, and another notable name from the same town is Jason Newsted, known for playing bass in Metallica and with Ozzy Osbourne. A quick search shows that Metallica are touring and have a show in L.A. on May 2nd. I really prefer Switch's theory that it means The Cure are playing.
I was trying to find something that would make it plausible for me to guess Prince... so if anyone can point out anything that leads there, let me know?
(I will say, I do love me a good conspiracy, and how, with enough effort and the right "perspective" on things, you can tie anything to anything else. Except for Prince, dammit.)
