I would love to see them book CHVRCHES again, bummed I missed them last year.
As for bands that should be / are definitely releasing new material in the near future: CHROMEO always makes for a good dance party. SPOON would be a more than solid subheadliner. It almost seems like a foregone conclusion that THE HEAD AND THE HEART will be on the poster for one of the two weekends. THE BLACK KEYS were reportedly in the studio last year, and would make for a popular Mumford-esque headliner. Any of Jonny Jewel's projects (who are constantly releasing new music) would be amazing, though CHROMATICS would be particularly awesome.

Alright, it's about time to get this conversation started again. I'm thinking that the move to two three-day festivals will allow for Snacks to book bigger headliners than we've seen at Sasquatch in the past. So, these seem like attainable headliners/subheadliners that could show up in some combination or another between the May and July festivals.
HEADLINERS: Arcade Fire, Atoms for Peace (Thom Yorke at the Gorge!), Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam, Florence + The Machine, [INSERT POPULAR EDM ACT HERE], Maybe Kanye West or Drake since the hip-hop headliner clearly contributed to the fast sell-out last year?
SUBS: Neutral Milk Hotel, My Bloody Valentine, The National, Foster the People, The Knife, Frank Ocean, TV on the Radio, Queens of the Stone Age
That being said, I feel like we have less to go off than the previous few years because no ones knows how they'll handle the two-weekend expansion. This really amounts to little more than rampant speculation at this point, but what else do I have to tide me over until May?

Having Cut Copy on the lineup would make me a very happy Sasquatch-er.
Similarly, I noticed that Jay-Z skipped the NW entirely on both his recently announced solo tour AND his tour with Justin Timberlake this summer. Ok, he and JT played Vancouver, B.C. but nothing in Seattle or Portland on either tour.
Now, it would stand to reason that Jay-Z is too big (expensive) to be a Sasquatch headliner, but maybe that's changing with the expansion to two weekends?

While I saw some pretty legendary sets this year (Sigur Ros and Primus were both incredible) I felt like the sound issues were a huge detractor to my overall experience. Did anyone else feel the same way, or am I just being overly critical? I'm honestly having a hard time remembering if the issues that I experienced were pretty normal for Sasquatch, or if this year was as glitch-ridden as it seemed.

So, RATM could possibly play together this summer?
When responding to a question regarding who would drum for the band on their upcoming tour, Geezer Butler responded, “We’re not sure yet. We don’t know because I think Brad [Wilk]‘s got commitments with Rage Against The Machine. So it’ll probably be either Tommy [Clufetos] or Brad, depending on their commitments.”
