I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I actually really enjoyed Foo Fighters' headlining set in 2011 ... Was it jaw-dropping like Massive Attack in 2010 or Sigur Ros in 2013? Clearly not. But it was a damn good time and a high-energy start to the weekend.
Yeah, over the past 5 years, there has always been at least one artist who has played Sasquatch after playing DTHB the previous December: Foals (2014), The Lumineers (2013), Mumford & Sons (2012), Grouplove (2012), Sleigh Bells (2011), and Vampire Weekend (2010).
Fair enough. Out of those, I only caught The Lumineers and Mumford, and they seemed more the exception than the rule.
Honestly, it's great news for me, because I would love to see TVOTR show up on the bill. They put on a fantastic set at Pemberton this summer.
I was just thinking about this today as well. I don't even know if Mr. Richard D James plays shows any more, but if he does, he would make one hell of a headliner for the dance tent.
He does still play shows, but very occasionally ... I doubt Snacks would shell out that kinda money for a dance tent headliner or a late night set, and he probably wouldn't fit as a headliner. Wouldn't be surprised to see him play some bigger festivals, though. Coachella, Primavera, Glasto, etc.
BUT STILL, RAMPANT SPECULATION = APHEX TWIN CONFIRMED.
