We're setting our sights too high. The possibility of Daft Punk or the Chili Peckers are so minute. Last year was the quickest sell out, without huge headliners. It doesn't make financial sense to pay the really expensive bands when you're only trying to sell 25,000 tickets, unless you plan on doubling ticket prices. The ten year anniversary is cool, but it's still just another year. They aren't going to risk losing money to make this year extra extra special.
It's just as likely we get a couple large EDM draws per night on the back stage, with a top tier looking like this:
Saturday: Death Cab For Cutie ----> Interpol Sunday: Decemberists ----> Wilco Monday: Spoon ----> Modest Mouse
