As much as I want to believe in an LCD headlining slot at the Gorge, has Sasquatch ever shared a headliner with Coachella? (besides Outkast, who played basically every festival imaginable ...)
Bjork headlined both in 2007, for one. If you take away the same year requirement, there have been several acts that headlined both festivals (Jack White, Foo Fighters, Beastie Boys...). I think it's definitely possible. Especially considering the report that they're playing "several major festivals", I think the LCD reunion has more in common with the last Outkast tour than those other acts. In contrast to the Outkast reunion, I feel like every festival lineup that has come out without them in it increases the probability that they will be at Sasquatch.
I too think it's possible, I'm just trying to manage my own expectations ... Traditionally, acts in the top 3 for festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lolla, etc. have been just outside of Sasquatch's reach.
I truly hope LCD proves the exception to the rule, I'm just not holding my breath.

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.
