It's not that they can't and some of them surely will but it's the same reason that a band who plays new york the Thursday before sasquatch is less likely to play. It costs a lot of money and it's pretty taxing on the bands to fly that far just for a one off show.
that said I'm pretty bummed that emeralds isn't going to be there (although I don't know how well they'd work anyway...)
BSS did it last year so did Pavement. There were more if i remember right. I think playing at primavera makes a band more likely and less likely at the same time. Kind of like how Dewey Cox needs more and less blankets.
