Yeah, I heard alot of people were disappointed with their lolla show, which may be the reason their comeback hasn't been hyped up or why they haven't been booked/rumoured for more big events/festivals.
I'm just drawing a blank on the other, supposedly cheaper, headliners would be. I'd love to see The Strokes, but for some reason I don't think it will happen. I'd say Pulp would be a shoe-in for the Massive Attack Spot (European, touring after hiatus, etc.) but they're playing primavera and then in the uk in june. I don't think they'd do a one off at Sasquatch. Portishead apparently aren't in NA until the fall. Perhaps LCD Soundsytem will return? Is Faith No More still touring? Flaming Lips are possible, though they too are at Primavera. Maybe M.I.A.?
Okay, so more to help my poor brain out than anything, I decided to make a sorta guide to potential headliners that maybe we can draw from. Correct me if I'm wrong on the placement or inclusion of any of these, it might be a little shaky. Trying to be as objective as possible and excluding personal taste.
NEVER GONNA GET
Radiohead Daft Punk White Stripes Rage Against The Machine RHCP
Borderline, most likely too expensive
Pearl Jam Soundgarden Outkast Muse Weezer Coldplay
High Tier questionable acts
Beastie Boys Neil Young The Strokes Kings Of Leon Depeche Mode Kanye West
Realistic Weekend Headliners
Arcade Fire Wilco Tenacious D Faith No More Ben Harper The Roots The Flaming Lips Beck The Pixies
Good job, i would put chemical brothers in the realistic along with weezer and the strokes.
I don't think kol will be there,
Yeah, I really don't expect KOL to be there either, but given their status and the fact that they've put out an album since their last performance I guess there's a scrap of a chance. I sure hope not though.
Daft punk would be less expensive but coachella or bonnaroo would throw them a bunch of money to be exclusive, and unless Adam zaks is blackmailing then with recent pictures of them with out the robotic head gear, we couldn't compete.
