I'm more concerned about a possible conflict between Panda Bear and Deafheaven. After consulting with last year's schedule, it seems pretty damn likely, especially if Cut Copy are indeed a late night set.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed last year, as did Killer Mike, Danny Brown, El-P, Shad, P.O.S., Earl Sweatshirt, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Azealia Banks
...except those last three didn't perform. C'mon, Snacks.
Chance is fantastic live, btw. Very high energy, the backing band is sweet, and several songs, like Everything's Good, are a bit more up-tempo and fun. Bouncing around to Acid Rap in the midday sun at the Gorge will be...awesome. Also, Chance>>Mogwai>>Die Antwoord...shit's gonna get freaky at the Bigfoot.
So's long as we're talking about who will and won't be at these shindigs, what do people think of the chances of Queens bringing out a guest? Lanegan? Dare I say it, - Grohl? Not especially likely, I guess, but damn would it be great.

They've been around for a while, their last album was widely considered to be their best
This is not a real thing.
Caught me. More accurately: their last album received generally positive reviews, but you can say that about most of their records, really. I actually thought Trouble was pretty bland at first but it's grown on me like a motherfucker.
Also, thank you crouton. You've always been a friend to me in salads, glad to see that relationship extends to music as well.

23? Damn. Even nailing the May headliners wasn't enough ;(
Squamish will definitely sell out, exactly for the reason you said davers: first-timers. People who would never even think of going to a music festival will go to this one because of Eminem and Bruno Mars, primarily. People who have never been are more willing to drop big money for an infrequent luxury. At least, based on what I've seen/heard.
For context: presale sold out in twenty minutes. I expect general sale to go in less.
