Wolfmother is to Tame Impala as Dr. Dog are to Owl City. Meaning, each pair shares nationalities and has obvious influences that shine through the music. That's about as deep as it goes.
Granted I didn't get a 1600 on my SAT (close), but you lost me at Dr. Dog. It's obvious Wolfmother was going for Black Sabbath/Led Zeppelin, Tame Impala is going for the Beatles, and Owl City is going for the Postal Service/Shitting Your Pants While Crying To A Beat, but I think Dr. Dog has a unique sound, albeit somewhat familiar. What am I missing about them? Are they secretly Aerosmith?

You can bet your ass I'll be as close as possible for Sigur Ros, but yeah, missing any part of Tame Impala will be a bummer. Lonerism is a fantastic album, kind of weird to see them getting shit on a bit here. Comparing them to Wolfmother (a terrible band) bums me out.
That Vampire Weekend placing at Bigfoot makes zero sense to me as well. I had expected that if they were announced they'd be headlining a night (or at the very least being on the same stage/time as before), since it seems highly uncommon for acts to be downgraded in stage placement as time goes on, especially not a band like them that's increasing in popularity. Has a band billed 5th ever been on Bigfoot? If they make me pick between them and Arctic Monkeys or Macklemore I'm going to be filled with rage. I'll just tell myself it was a mistake so I'm not pissed about conflicts 3 months before the festival.
edit: another thing that doesn't make too much sense to me (but more so than the VW shit) is that Arctic Monkeys are rumored to be headlining a night of Glastonbury, but are billed 8th at Sasquatch. I guess they're just a hell of a lot more popular in England.
