I updated the first post to reflect Murder City Devils playing Sunday (a great add), and Devotchka back on Saturday. With Devotchka added to the main stage early, and being billed fifth on the main stage, this opens the realistic possibility of Animal Collective being moved from the main stage to the headliner slot on Wookie. They would make more sense closing out than Bon Iver.

AA Bondy was moved from the Sunday's earliest Wookie slot to Saturday on the Yetti, billed third, which moved three bands on the Yeti down a spot. AA Bondy was basically switched with Hockey, who was the lowest billed Yeti act on Saturday, and is now the lowest billed Wookie act Sunday.
This schedule, that isn't the actual schedule. How did you come up with this? Are these am or pm times? Based on anyone who went last year, when do the performances usually start?
Someone based it off of last years schedule. Here is the actual schedule from LAST YEAR, it should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect. Also, everything on here is start times in the P.M. except Dyme Def on Monday's Mainstage, which is 11:30am.

Knowidyuh, adding Mos Def to close out the Wookie stage fills out your wookie line-up for Saturday by pushing everyone else down a spot. I think that your predicted line-up seems pretty spot on considering all the information that we have.

Aight, first page is updated reflecting Mos Def headlining the Wookie Saturday. Bon Iver didn't make a lot of sense closing out the Wookie anyway.
Although, I don't think this is where Mos Def will stay. Clearly, the festival organizers saw my mock schedule, and upon realizing how accurate it is, decided to try to throw me off. Those crazy festival organizers. (when the real lineup comes out, Mos Def will have switched places with Animal Collective).
Bon Iver didn't make a lot of sense closing out the Wookie anyway.
But no seriously the gf gives me such shit for bashing this thread so hard in the beginning and yet on all our drunken nights pulling it up for an enthused and speculative planning of Sasquatch.
And I hope Mos Def stays the headliner of Wookie. This is my tentative schedule based on a tentative schedule:
10:00 Dance tent 8:15 Yeah Yeah Yeahs over to 8:45 Mos Def 6:50 Decembrists over to 7:15 Bon Iver 5:25 Animal Collective 4:20 Devotchka 4:45 King Khan & The Shrines (woa just realized this conflict - - SUCKS) 3:15 M. Ward (sorry Shearwater) 2:10 Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele (sorry Passion Pit) 12:55 Gaslight Anthem 12:30 Owl City
10:00 Dance tent 8:00 NIN (sucks to miss Of Montreal) 6:35 TV on the Radio (definitely toughest decision) 5:10 Murder City Devils 4:45 Wrens (actually an easy choice for me) 3:00 Calexico (Sorry St. Vincent) 2:00 Walkmen 1:30 Hockey
9:00 Dance tent 8:30 Explosions in the Sky 7:00 Girl Talk (Sorry, Beach House) 6:05 Fleet Foxes (Sorry, Blitzen) 4:40 Gogol Bordello 3:30 Santigold 3:35 Montonix 3:15 Horse Feathers (undecided! seeing Monotonix April 10 so not sure if I want to skip the other two, whom I like, for seeing them again. Will know April 10) 2:10 Grizzly Bear 1:25 Black Moth Super Rainbow

I wasn't defending that Bon Iver should headline the Wookie, I was defending the logic behind him headlining the Wookie based on the information available at the time, and the comment that I was "obviously guessing."
As for the schedule, glad it helps. I should say that I mentioned earlier in this thread that the lineup has zero personal opinion. I ended up adjusting the time slots for the Sunday show based on the thought that NIN will get a longer set time than a typical opener. It would probably be more accurate to move each time slot 15 minutes earlier, since I only moved them by approximately 15 minutes. Otherwise the time slots match last year.

The Mos Def add is great and makes me hopeful that there will be some strong additions to the other days. It seems like Saturday's schedule is pretty full (minus a yeti band) but a couple of nice adds on Sunday and Monday will really round out the schedule. The fact that it looks like there are two open slots on the main stage for those days seems promising. I would love a Deerhoof add.
Whats the concensus on when the dance acts are going to be playing? I am thinking the first act will be playing at 9ish for about an hour and the "headliner" dance act will play from 10 to 11-11:30ish. I guess the other option would be after the main stage headliner is over, but that would cost extra for the security it seems, so I feel that is less likely.
This is not the actual schedule (but it should look pretty similar):
10:00 Kings of Leon 8:15 Yeah Yeah Yeahs 8:45 Mos Def 6:50 Decembrists 7:15 Bon Iver 6:30 Ra Ra Riot 5:25 Animal Collective 6:00 Sun Kill Moon 5:25 Mt St Helens Vietnam Band 4:20 Devotchka 4:45 King Khan & The Shrines 4:20 AA Bondy 3:15 M. Ward 3:40 Shearwater 3:15 Arthur & Yu 2:10 Doves 2:35 Passion Pit 2:10 Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele 12:55 Gaslight Anthem 1:30 Blind Pilot 1:05 Death Vessel 12:00 Vince Mira 12:30 Owl City 12:00 OPEN
10:00 Jane's Addiction 8:00 NIN 8:45 Of Montreal 6:35 TV on the Radio 7:15 M83 6:30 Dodos 5:10 Murder City Devils 6:00 Airborne Toxic Event 5:25 Submarines 4:05 Avett Brothers 4:45 Wrens 4:20 Viva Voce 3:00 Calexico 3:40 St. Vincent 3:15 Builders and the Butchers 2:00 Walkmen 2:35 John Vanderslice 2:10 Japandroids 12:40 OPEN 1:30 Hockey 1:05 Fences 11:45 Mike Watt & the Missingmen 12:30 OPEN 12:00 Point Juncture, WA
9:00 Ben Harper & Relentless7 8:15 Erykah Badu 8:30 Explosions in the Sky 7:15 Silversun Pickups 7:00 Girl Talk 6:30 Beach House 6:05 Fleet Foxes 5:55 Blitzen Trapper 5:25 Dutchess and the Duke 4:40 Gogol Bordello 4:40 The Knux 4:20 School of Seven Bells 3:30 Santigold 3:35 Montonix 3:15 Horse Feathers 2:10 Grizzly Bear 2:30 Bishop Allen 2:10 Pica Beats 1:05 Mugison 1:25 Black Moth Super Rainbow 1:05 Loch Lomond 12:10 OPEN 12:20 OPEN 12:00 BLK JKS 11:30 OPEN
With Street Sweeper added to the main stage on Sunday and Mad Rad to the Yeti stage that seems to complete the line-up for Saturday and Sunday. Heartless Bastards is added to Monday according to CoS, but I don't know if they are a main or wookie act. Hopefully, we will still get one or two solid additions to Monday.
