I realize it's silly and ridiculous to make a personal schedule based on last year's stage times compared to this year's tentative stage placements, especially since the Main Stage and Bigfoot are each lacking a few artists compared to last year, but, I am waiting for Nadine to cook us pizza so I did it anyways, assuming the remaining slots are filled with noon and 1:00 bands, even though they probably won't be.
Friday Reignwolf -> Red Fang -> BUILT TO SPILL -> Matthew Dear -> Vampire Weekend
Saturday Fand Island -> Nick Offerman -> AKRON/FAMILY -> Yppah -> John Talabot -> SIGUR ROS
Sunday Torche -> Dropkick Murphys -> Baths -> Elvis Costello -> Grimes -> PRIMUS
Monday DIRTY PROJECTORS -> Jenny Slate -> Mike Birbiglia -> DEATH GRIPS -> P.o.s. -> CAKE -> Menomena -> The Postal Service
DP in the early afternoon kind of sucks, but everything else is lookin' pretty good. Thus far it seems that I will not have any problems with conflicting must-sees, which are noted in ALL CAPS.

Damn, that Azari And III/Elvis Costello/Grimes mixup on sunday would be brutal.
Looking at the dance tent lineup, Sunday and Monday both have room for one more to be added. Sunday could be a dance tent headliner since the Presets are not big/good enough to close out the dance tent. On Monday someone could be added in there at any time and fit in, just probably not over Steve Aoki as the headliner (no matter how terrible he is. I wonder if people are actually going to go see him?)
Akron/Family --> Holy Ghost/Andrew Bird --> Bloc Party --> TEED --> Tame Impala --> Sigur Ros --> Empire of the Sun
Torche --> Tallest Man on Earth --> Shout Out Louds --> El-P --> Earl Sweatshirt --> Grimes --> Presets --> Primus
Dirty Projectors --> Twin Shadow --> Azealia Banks --> Death Grips --> Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti --> Danny Brown/Disclsoure (this would be the worst conflict of the weekend for me) --> Alt-J --> Postal Service
As for early bands, I'll probably just cruise around and try to find cool shit I've never heard of. That's typically how it works. Still working on listening to the unknowns, so I can navigate that part of the day better.
I hope that ends up being close to the real schedule, because it got rid of a lot of my conflicts I thought I would have. bloc party vs john talabot vs surfer blood would be tough and elvis costello vs grimes vs azari & III and death grips vs beachwood sparks are the ones I am still nervous about.
