Judging by that If I said my wristband was at will call will the let me into the campground without it?
A friend in my group last year lost his ticket pre-fest and had to pick a new one up at will call. We had absolutely no problems getting in to the campgrounds without it, so unless this year's much different you should be fine
Has anyone considered seeing how that chart of artists lines up with set times of last year? Just to get a vague idea of potential times.
I'd be perfectly willing to do this, but a bit of searching for last year's schedule only led me to incomplete mock-ups and articles linking to the official site, which obviously has now been updated. I'm sure it's somewhere obvious I just haven't looked yet, and if someone can point me to it I'd be happy to do the rest.

You can bet your ass I'll be as close as possible for Sigur Ros, but yeah, missing any part of Tame Impala will be a bummer. Lonerism is a fantastic album, kind of weird to see them getting shit on a bit here. Comparing them to Wolfmother (a terrible band) bums me out.

Agreed on Macklemore. On a similar note, Built To Spill has Friday (and only Friday) listed. I'll report cases like them and Macklemore where only one day is listed, but pretty much any time that day is Friday everybody should be wary. It was mentioned in the other thread that some bands will report playing on Friday simply because it's the first day listed. Might be worth putting them on the list, but should be taken with a grain of salt.

Some mild detective work (aka just going to different bands' websites and scoping out tour dates) has revealed the following so far:
Edward Sharpe - Sunday
The Lumineers - Monday The Postal Service - Monday
...and Macklemore's tour page says Friday w/Mumford & Sons, which either means he's sub-headlining for them or, much more likely, doesn't mean anything, and the "w/Mumford & Sons" part is just a product of their top billing.
My night is pretty free, (hopefully) more to come.

Grimes would be a great pick, but won't she likely end up in the tent? I'm having trouble picturing this in there. I support the Twin Shadow suggestion, and I would throw Tame Impala out there as an option too

I am so in, great idea. It'd be nice to get this going during a packed main stage set at night. Off the top of my head, my early vote would go to Vampire Weekend. They just feel like a beach ball band, y'know?
EDIT: Missed the "during the day" part. If that part's important, then waiting until the schedule is out is probably the only way to plan it
Why is Devendra Banhart not on anyone's list! Has anyone seen him live; the guy could easily headline.
I saw Devendra Banhart several years back (06 I think?) with no prior knowledge of his music and thought him and his band put on a great show, but then I couldn't get into his actual albums at all - they seemed really weak, and I started to question just how much of a role drugs had played in my enjoyment of his set. Then I dated a girl who loved him, and one night, on our anniversary, I was driving us toward the ferry on Whidbey Island with "Seahorse" playing and a fucking deer popped up out of nowhere and SPRINTED HEAD ON TOWARD MY CAR. Collision followed, the deer died instantly, my car got totaled, and it remains the worst accident I've ever been in.
