Tour starts May 7th, so you'll know who is traveling with them then. It's just my opinion here, but I'm thinking the Sasquatch performance will be their best of the US tour. Sasquatch didn't pay the big bucks for Cure, REM, Bjork, Beastie Boys, etc., this year, so why not pay a bit more to bring more to the stage than the traveling band, and make it a more epic show? "Hey dude from TV on the Radio, here's 4K, a free weekend pass, and a flight out here, all you have to do is sing on one song."
It's funny, if you asked me a month ago, MGMT would've been almost at the bottom of my want-to-see list. But since I first listened to Congratulations, I've been really enjoying them, though not fully sold yet due to the fact that people here made them sound not-so-good live. But, upon viewing their Saturday Night Live performances, they look like a band I'd really want to see... the exception is the backup guitarist... Everytime he made those faces, I wanted to punch that face right off him.
1. Pavement 2. Massive Attack 3. The National 4. Deadmau5 5. LCD Soundsystem 6. The Tallest Man On Earth 7. Passion Pit 8. She & Him (but mostly just Zooey Deschanel in person...) 9. The New Pornographers 10. Broken Social Scene

my top 10 has changed, so here's what it looks like now
1. Pavement 2. Brother Ali 3. Massive Attack 4. The National 5. Portugal. The Man 6. Band of Horses 7. Deadmau5 8. The Hold Steady (even though I'll only see a half hour of them) 9. Quasi 10. The Tallest Man on Earth
Public Enemy got the boot because I'm still debating whether it's worth trying to squeeze in part of their set between Pavement and Massive Attack, and there's no way I'll be seeing Dirty Projectors with Pavement playing at the same time. The Heavy, Cairbou, Phantogram, and LCD Soundsystem are also up there for me, and could be in the top 10 if I ever decide to reorganize this list.
