These aren't so much as predictions as wishes, but all the bands listed are free Memorial Weekend so... maybe?
Metric (Playing at Coachella) The Blow (PNW band) Architecture in Helsinki (playing at Coachella) United State of Electronica (PNW band) Belle and Sebastian Goldfrapp (recent album) Imperial Teen Minus the Bear (PNW band) Band of Horses (PNW band, same label as Fleet Foxes and Grand Archives) Yeah Yeah Yeahs (unlikely, in the process of writing and recording a new album. Maybe next year?)
As for your guesses... Jimmy Eat World seems somewhat likely as far as tour dates and locations are concerned, though I don't know if they are "indie" enough for Sasquatch. The Decemberists seem more likely as they are PNW and are playing with Death Cab in Oregon on the 24th. I imagine they'll be added to Sunday.
Tegan: We love something together, and we made it together and we appreciate that and we'll always have that bond... Sara: It was a mistake, and I should've worn a condom.
The days are still pretty uneven. They need some more bands to help even it out. I would bet we get 5-8 more acts between now and the actual date. Hell the spree wasnt added until a few weeks before last year if i remember correctly
ever since the line-up went out a few weeks ago, talk of solo sets by chris walla and eddie vedder have died down. does anyone think that these may be late additions. i realize that death cab is already playing, but that doesnt mean walla cant do a small set too. thoughts?
Don't count out vampire weekend just yet and there ARE more additions. MGMT still has to be added and such. So don't worry.
Dude, I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but I can and will count Vampire Weekend out, and so should everyone else. They're playing a show in Munich the day before Sasquatch starts. The earliest they could hop a flight to the states would be Saturday, May 24th. The logistics of getting the entire band, their crew, and all their gear half way around the world in one day to play a 45 minute set is beyond ridiculous. Cross your fingers for next year.
