M. Ward looks like a lock with no NW dates, plus the released dates end right before Sasquatch.

Yeah, the venue map is also 'coming soon'....so it seems like a 5th stage could be possible
At the same time though it might just be that the 'sasquatch' listing on the lineup page is a collection of all bands playing at Sasquatch and the other tabs sort the bands according to which stage they are playing on

The Sasquatch website meow lists a fifth stage. I'm not sure what to make of this but intuitively I would believe that there will be more acts this year since there are more stages to accommodate them.
Edit: This post is completely fucking dumb, nevermind.
Gotye is playing the Nepchune in Seattle on April 10, seems like this would probably rule them out for Sasquatch
No. It wouldn't. Not even a little bit.
Not so much a comment related to the Santa Clause so much as the reasonableness of Gotye specifically being there again a month later. He is ridiculously huge in Australia and is much bigger in Europe than he is in America. Seems unlikely that an artist who could sell out a huge theater in Australia or wherever would give that many fucks about Seattle as to come out twice in 6 weeks.
I think the fact that the Santa Clause had just been brought up maybe got everyone thinking about it? A bit jumpy, maybe?

As a regular lurker and occasional poster, I'd like to say that HG is a really invaluable contributor. If not for him and the chaos that he creates, I would just look at know's sasquatch blog and nothing else. That being the case, hats off to HG and Switch for necessitating multiple rumor threads.
