In that case, they could definitely headline the Sasquatch stage. Jack White played WAMU after Sasquatch last year. I'm gonna guess they won't headline though, you're exactly right that the majority of the crowd wouldn't be into them. That just makes me think again they'd be Bigfoot headliners.
Nah, you don't pay that much money for a band to play the Bigfoot. They just wouldn't book them if they're not willing have them subheadline at a minimum.
Dude, but everybody knows who Bon Iver is. Those albums blew up like crazy. Phoenix... less so.
I'm not positive that I've ever heard a Bon Iver song on the radio but they STILL play 1901 and Listomania. Those songs were massive.
Really? Granted, I don't listen to the radio much, but I don't think I've ever really heard any buzz about Phoenix with the exception of DLC for Rock Band. But even my girlfriend's mother listens to Bon Iver. Which is saying something, I guess. I don't know.

I have a 2 hour long program on Saturdays for my college station which is about as much exposure as I really get to radio. And since we're a college station all the music is like "The Flip Flops - Bananapanorama" and "SPRCLSPRXPLDR - Mandatory Robot Arms". I always make an attempt to throw on some Bon Iver, but it's usually off of the remix album that they released for spotify (which was really cool).
I know this doesn't rule them out, but I think it certainly makes them less likely: My Bloody Valentine, Band of Horses, and Hot Chip all play Primavera on Saturday. I wouldn't expect MBV or Hot Chip to be there anyway, but take that information as you will.
