Looks like Monotonix remains a possibility:
01-29 Charlotte, NC - Snug Harbor 01-30 Asheville, NC - Rocket Club 03-03 Sydney, Australia - Annandale Hotel 03-04 Melbourne, Australia - Ding Dong Lounge 03-05 Geelong, Australia - The National Hotel 03-06 Meredith, Australia - Golden Plains Festival 03-07 Crossing, Australia - Lost Weekend Festival 04-13 Carborro, NC - Cat's Cradle * 04-14 Brooklyn, NY - Brooklyn Bowl &^ 04-15 Portland, ME - The Space 04-16 Providence, RI - TBA 04-17 Akron, OH - Musica 04-18 Buffalo, NY - Mohawk Place 04-19 Chicago, IL - Schubas 05-14 Minehead, England - ATP Festival
Still not likely, you know, because they played last year -- but don't write them off...
Summercamp festival is a jam band festival taking place in Illinois the same weekend as Sasquatch. Here is their initial lineup:
The Avett Brothers, Backyard Tire Fire, Bassnectar, Brainchild, Chicago Farmer, Cornmeal, Dangermuffin, EOTO, Family Groove Company, Gov’t Mule, The Hood Internet, Keller Williams, Kinetix, The Macpodz, moe., The Ragbirds, STS9, That 1 Guy, Umphrey’s McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band
Although they pander to different musical tastes, their is a little crossover of bands... Typically, bands will not make it to both festivals (however I believe Girl Talk did last year). You can therefore more than likely count out these aforementioned bands.
However, I find it's also important to see that certain crossover bands like MMJ and the Flaming Lips did not sign up for Summer Camp, thus keeping their weekend available for a particular NW festival.
Dammit, Primavera strikes again. Unless that mythical flight is getting filled up a ton, it looks like it'll be unlikely to see Grizzly Bear, Built to Spill, Tortoise, Major Lazer, Condo Fucks, Seefeel, BEAK>, and Monotonix as they are playing Primavera. Damn, I might have to fly to Spain instead.
Maybe some of the bands that we were expecting to play at Sasquatch will play during the first day or two of Primavera. I certainly hope so because I thought for sure that Built to Spill would be there!
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.

Most of these new Primavera bands (BtS, Monotonix, Grizzly Bear) have played Sasquatch in the last two years. Although I love Built to Spill and want to see them every day for the rest of my life, this shouldn't come as a major shock or disappointment to anyone.
