I'm really hoping for something along the lines of Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel or David Byrne. Something totally unexpected; something that people would bitch about incessantly until they started to play 'Graceland' or 'Sledgehammer' or 'Nothing But Flowers' and everyone shut up about it forever.
Back when MTV was still Music Television, Sledgehammer was the most played video of all time.

David Byrne would be amazing!!! I'd personally be happy if AF, Wilco, and (especially) the Pixies were the other headliners but it would be awesome if there were some big epic unexpected surprise(s) come Sunday that none of us saw coming (Aka I can't give up on my Radiohead pipe dream)
"The Flaming Lips- a possibility every year." <- from first post on this thread
A slim possibility this year, at best, given that they're playing Primavera. Whoever is updating the first post, please remove them from the "strong possibilities" category. Hell, I'd LOVE to see them again, but they're not likely to play here this year.

Well, the headlining acts generally have travel expenses covered by the festival. We know Adam Snack's loves the Lips, and that he's more than willing to shell out to haul their shit around (U.F.O. Show '08).
We also know that just about every other headlining act in the known universe is spoken for at this point.
