Azeilia Banks vs Death Grips vs Toro Y Moi. Azealia Banks and Toro Y Moi split
Grips are going to put on one of the most energetic, aggressive and impressive sets of the weekend. Pretty much a guarantee. I guess if it isn't really "your thing" you could miss it....but otherwise, no excuse. Azealia would be nice but can hardly compare. Can't really speak on Toro y Moi.
Postal Service vs. Rusko. I like both, don't love either. Seen Rusko haven't seen PS. I think I would have more fun with Ruskos material to end the weekend. Game time decision. Maybe go first half of PS and last half of Rusko.
But if you don't see the end of The Postal Service, you won't get to sing along to "Such Great Heights" with everyone!
Arctic Monkeys against Youth Lagoon is pretty bad. I got into Arctic Monkeys about a year ago and their records have never left my current playlist. Youth Lagoon is growing on me fast and will probably end up winning, especially because the Yeti stage is a much shorter walk to Bigfoot than from the Sasquatch stage, and I don't want to be a mile away behind 15,000+ people for Vampire Weekend.
Tame Impala -> Sigur Ros is what I'm doing for that time period. The way the schedule is set up I'll probably miss all of Mumford because I want to see Grimes and also be close for Primus. Death Grips instead of Azealia Banks for me, especially because I'll already have been at Bigfoot for Dirty Projectors. I haven't got into Disclosure but they'd have to be pretty fucking amazing to get me to miss Cake.
I've seen Arctic Monkeys twice in the last 2 years. I can definitely skip them for Youth Lagoon.

Alt-J - The Lumineers is really the only conflict for me so far. I'm not familiar with 80% of the artists anyway so this weekend I'll lock myself in my room and listen to a few songs from everyone playing. After that I'll be back to bitch about such and such.
How can you still be unfamiliar with 80% of the line up? Its been out for two months.
I started listening to bands I hadn't heard of almost immediately following the lineup announcement and still am not familiar with around half of them, mostly Yeti/Cthulhu/Chupacabra groups that I probably wouldn't want to see anyhow. On my schedule I think I highlighted three Yeti groups, no Cthulhu groups and three Chupacabra for the entire weekend. I still don't know some of the early Sasquatch and Bigfoot bands either.
