MAY: 1. QOTSA 2. Outkast 3. M.I.A. 4. Liars 5. Mogwai 6. Portugal. The Man 7. Foals 8. Deafheaven 9. Major Lazer 10. Die Antwoord
Lots of names in there that I have seen but don't know their music. Excited to start researching.
JULY: 1. Kraftwerk (I have still never even heard them but I am super stoked just because of how stoked some of you are.) 2. The Horrors 3. Deltron 3030 4. The Black Angels 5. Sandrider 6. Helms Alee 7. Junip 8. Metz 9. Death 10. Royksop + Robyn
Again, lots of names in here that I have seen but don't know their music. It will be interesting to see how this list changes closer to the festivals.
1. The National Reserve 2. LIARS 3. MOGWAI (finally at jeffsquatch...) 4. WASHED OUT 5. PANDA BEAR 6. THE DODOS 7. QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE 8. PHANTOGRAM (they sucked on their first tour with Minus The Bear and Maps & Atlases) 9. chune-YARDS (she was so good a couple years ago) 10. DEAFHEAVEN 11. PARQUET COURTS
also very pumped for Ryan Hemsworth, Austra, Foals (if they play old stuff), Cut Copy (if they are late with lights and am not sober)
I'm not sure where there was some LIARS discussion before, but I had WIXIW as my favourite album on 2012. And they are tremendous live. And their new album is gonna be fantastic.

Has anyone heard anything about what the Violent Femmes are playing these days? Are they still doing their first album like they did at Coachella last year? I would be stroked as fudge if they are because it's really the only full album of theirs that I really got into. It's a bonafide classic, but some of their later stuff got a little hokey for my taste.
MAY 8. PHANTOGRAM (they sucked on their first tour with Minus The Bear and Maps & Atlases)
I can't remember what year they were at Sasquatch but it was after Eyelid Movies came out. They were really good that year. The whole crowd was mesmerized. To this date I have only heard Eyelid Movies, though.
1. Boys Noize 2. Gesaffelstein 3. Deafheaven 4. Cut Copy 5. The National 6. Panda Bear 7. Rudimental 8. Classixx 9. Major Lazer 10. Die Antwoord
I tried to cut out artists that I'll likely see at Coachella the month before, but Rudimental and Classixx are a couple of favorite new finds of mine that I'm pretty excited I'll get two opportunities to see this year.
