Bjork overbooked herself this year will festival appearances in addition to her massive installations, which led to complications with a vocal cord nodule. We don't need to ask Snacks for this one, but fingers crossed regardless that she's feeling better in time for 'Squatch because we know how badly she wants to throw random garbage into the Gorge again. 3D Primus Because it's Primus and it's 3 dimensional and we don't even know what that really means yet. Kraftwerk have been known to make the most random and sparse US festival appearances. Booking them as a headliner would be the most exciting thing Snacks could do for me since introducing the impressive burritos this year, although I would accept them as a sub-headliner to Deadmau5 as their current level of pupularity would appropriate, even though that's really fucking sad. Animal Collective The more I think about it, the more I think how perfect Animal Collective would be as a Monday headliner, i.e. the haters can go home and the lovers can party without all the chatter.
Four Tet/Daphni This is the quintessential DJ set(s) that we need shacking our bananas next year. They created the two best bootie-shakin' albums of 2012 individually and have recently been spending a lot of time together playing consecutive DJ sets. Four Tet is long overdue in the shack, and Daphni is his perfect counterpart. Death Grips will be jocking everybody's nuts in 2013. Sasquatch will undoubtedly get a piece. Battles put on the best daytime festival set I've ever seen. At Bonnaroo they said they have been taking it easy in 2012, but to expect them back around in 2013. Built to Spill It's been 5 fucking years. Thee Oh Sees have rocked the shit out of every festival in the world except Sasquatch with their renowned live show. BOOK THAT SHIT ALREADY Tim Hecker and/or Daniel Lopatin Their new album together is good, although I still think these guys work better in their own heads. Either way, a collaborative set or a Tim Hecker set or a Oneohtrix Point Never set would melt some face. Deerhoof Kick-ass live shows like every day. New albums like every other day. Didn't get the spot they deserved in 2009. Redemption. Nice Nice The only reason I can think of for Nice Nice not playing Sasquatch yet is that Snacks hasn't heard of them. Theyre from Portland, play quality Sasquatch-esque music, and would probably do it for $50 and 2 train tickets. Their 2010 album Extra Wow is phenomenal, as is their live show. Check 'em out. Akron/Family There is no good reason for the AkAk boys never having played our beloved Sas. They released another excellent album last year that hasn't had much touring behind it yet, and their epic sets are perfect for festivals.
Animal Collective- Cause I need to see them chompers again! And by May they'll probably be playing jams off of what will be a new album in like 2014.
B.jork- She had to cancel a lot of the fests she planned on playing this year and she's releasing a remix album in 2 weeks. Hey, maybe she'll play Thunderbolt with Death Grips...
Four Tet/Fridge- Cause Kieran Hebden is a genius and he pretty much never stops touring.
Brian Eno Bucketlister for me! He's got a new album out this month and he hasn't toured much since 2010, it could be within the rhealm of possibilities, hopefully...
Dan Snaith-a-thon Caribou Vibration Ensemle- MIND BLOWING SHIT and perrrfect for the festival setting... Daphni- If Friday is going to be EDM night again, let Snaith school the rave kids. Combo Set with Keiran Hebden (Four Tet)- So they can play Pinnacle and YeYe togeths. They've been playing sets together alot the past few months in Europe.
Haha, I believe there has been talk of hive minds...
I agree with prior positive sentiments concerning Mr. Sweatshirt, and would add that one should take into consideration his age. I mean, kid's 18, and he's putting out shit like that. That's just talent. Unrefined talent, perhaps, but talent nonetheless.
He was the best at the Odd Future schtick out of all of them (ignoring Bastard) and now he's going off their grid, developing his style. He's going to blow the fuck up in the next five years. Pretty much what cbats said.
Could be wishful thinking, but I definitely see him as Sasquatch material. Midday/evening at Bigfoot, even. One can hope. I'd prefer that over Frank Ocean.
Death Grips would be the ultimate, of course. That set would defs cause more than a few cases of heat exhaustion.

Most of these have already been mentioned here or in the 2012 wishlist thread, but: Blur QOTSA Atoms For Peace Crystal Castles Tame Impala Primus How To Destroy Angels and whatever Mickey Melchiondo's (Dean Ween) new solo project is going by *sorry

All Tomorrow's Parties just announced the first batch of artists for their UK festivals in June. Deerhunter is curating weekend 2 (and playing their 3 most recent albums in their entireties!) which takes place June 21-23. I didn't think any of the following were going to be options for Sasquatch 2013, but ATP's lineup includes:
Atlas Sound Panda Bear Avey Tare(!) and "Animal Collective Djs"(!)
Having seen Animal Collective a few times now and Panda Bear, booking an Avey Tare solo set or any of those fuckers as DJs would be even more exciting than seeing the teeth again for me.
Not my favorite jam from the new album but the shots are pretty beautiful.
I REALLY like Flying Lotus, his new album is interesting. I really like Putty Boy Strut and the song with Thundercat is tight too. Also can't go wrong with the Thom Yorke collaboration. I can't wait for Captain Murphy to come out with his album this year, it will most likely be produced by FlyLo. Heres a song from the Adult Swim Singles series by Captain Murphy and Earl Sweatshirt produced by FlyLo, not sure if anyone has heard it yet but if not take a listen! Genius production work on this.
