Long time lurker with hopefully a meaningful thread.
Last year, 20% of the bands that played Sasquatch also played Coachella. I didn't look back beyond that but suffice to say there's an overlap between festivals each year. Now that the Coachella lineup's been released, perhaps we can make some more educated guesses/predictions on who's going to overlap this year?
Here's the list of people who overlapped last year: Vampire Weekend, Miike Snow, Edward Sharpe, The Middle East, Deadmau5, Pavement, LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors, The xx ZTrip, Local Natives, Passion Pit, MGMT, She & Him, The Temper Trap, Portugal, The Man.
With no real basis for these predictions other than that I've yet to see tour dates in the NW, these acts seem more likely than others to me as being overlaps this year: The Strokes, Crystal Castles, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Sleigh Bells, Bright Eyes, Thao & Get Down Stay Down, The New Pornographers, HEALTH & Lightning Bolt.
Interesting note. Here are my overlaps (in no particular order): Arcade Fire, Chemical Bros, Best Coast, Radio Dept, Chromeo, The Drums, The Kills, Bright Eyes, Morning Benders, Titus Andronicus, Warpaint, Cold War Kids, Cee Lo, Black Keys, Menomena, Two Door Cinema Club and 'Crystal Castlest'
my guesses for crossover. I'm not going to bother with the headliners or even the sub headliners.
Crystal Castles, Sleigh Bells, Cold War Kids, Skrillex, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Cage the Elephant, Elbow, Delta Spirit, Bloody Beatroots, City & Colour (due to cancellation last year), Foster the People, Menomena, Gord Downie.
If I had to guess at sub-headliner crossover, I'd say Chemical Brothers for a late night set, and likely Mumford & Sons on the mainstage. I'd also like to see DFA1979, but I'm not holding my breath.

Coachella and Sasquatch are two different things; two completely different crowds. Speculating about lineup overlap or getting your hopes up for an act that is at one to be at the other seems kind of futile, maybe? I mean, even that they're in roughly the same geographical region doesn't matter because they take place more than a month apart.
