I hope this lineup blows my mind because right now..
350 ticket + 150 camping/2 people = 425US per person. I guess you could have more people split camping, but still.. This could really hurt Sasquatch - I know a lot of the attendees are from Canadaland.
I think a lot of Canadians are going to wait until the Pemberton lineup comes out before they lay out that kind of money for Sasquatch. I'm actually kind of hoping this is true because I might not be able to buy both of my tickets (mine and the gf's) the day they go on sale, so it would be nice if it didn't sell it until after Pemby announces their lineup.
I think the reason I've been skeptical to assume Death Cab, Modest Mouse, or My Morning Jacket will be there is that in the last three festivals, only two out of eleven (or fourteen if you want to include the scheduled headlining sets for Soundgarden, Kraftwerk, and New Order) headliners had headlined Sasquatch before: 2012 Beck (who had last headlined in 2006 and was a unique booking for Sasquatch that year as he was not promoting a new release and had few other appearances that spring) and 2013 The Postal Service (who had last headlined in 2004 and whose following had greatly increased during their time away). Sure, the National, Queens of the Stone Age, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had appeared before (2008 and 2010, 2006, and 2011 [and kind of 2012] respectively), but Snacks seems to be moving away from predictable repeated headliners. Maybe one of Death Cab, Modest Mouse, or My Morning Jacket will headline, but I'm not expecting any of them. Does my logic make any sense?
EDIT: If we're considering past headliners, we must consider Boston Calling overlap Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals... (ellipses mean sarcasm)
Of the three you mentioned, Modest Mouse age Death Cab both played in 2011 and MMJ was 2010, so I think hope that makes them the most likely. It's also with nothing that Björk hasn't been back since 2007, so that basically confirms her.
San Fermin and Kiezsa more or less confirmed already. Sturgill Simpson starting to look like a distinct possibility. Where do we stand on confirming MMJ at this point? I would honestly be shocked if they don't play, based on the number of festivals they have announced already.

Thanks, Pea. I was wondering if that new album was any good. I've never been a big Marilyn Manson fan either (except for Portrait of an American Family, that album kicked my 17 year old ass), but I sometimes find myself enjoying one or two of his songs more than I care to admit in public. This album was on my "to check out" list, I just haven't gotten to it yet with all the other great music that came out this week.
