Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Confirmed until proven otherwise) Future Mac Miller Lupe Fiasco Snoop Dogg Danny Brown Run The Jewels (It seems like they are going to play every festival ever and I would love to have them back) ILLFIGHTYOU Cypress Hill Death Grips (They'll be on the lineup, then they won't show up. Classic Death Grips)

Some other names that have occurred to me as realistic possibilities over the last few days: Kurt Vile Eagles of Death Metal Sia Aqueduct Mac Miller Coheed & Cambria Frank Ocean Drive-By Truckers Baroness or The Sword (One of them will be the token metal band, but not both)
Also, it was occurring to me that there hasn't been an electronic main stage headliner since Pretty Lights in 2012. Considering the reaction that the late EDM acts on the Bigfoot have received the last couple years (look what Flume did to Sleater-Kinney's crowd last year), I wouldn't be surprised to see someone pushing buttons on the big stage one night. The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy both put out great new albums this year and either one would make me very happy, but it will probably be someone younger if it happens.
You dudes think Kraftwerk could happen f'realz? They played Seattle a year later, and now Portland another year later...Their schedule seems pretty random.
After the Julysquatch debacle, at first I didn't think any of the discarded headliners would end up back because the ticket sales were so bad. But I can't shake the feeling that Snacks was stroked to book them and would love the chance to still have them play. I think they're a long shot, but if they balance it with something like Pearl Jam & Macklemore, I don't think it's out of the question.

I've been hearing a new Macklemore song in heavy rotation on the radio at work, so I need to assume he gets on of the headliner spots until proven otherwise. My headliner confirmations at this point: Pearl Jam Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Alabama Shakes Kraftwerk 3D

Alanis Morrisette and Adele in another thread. Adele would be kinda cool in her own way, but I don't really see it happening. She doesn't seem like a festival act and I would think she could fill a venue like the Gorge on her own. Alanis, on the other hand, I see as a very realistic and cool possibility. She would fill the token 90s alternative star role perfectly and she is right in line with Sasquatch's M.O. of booking strong female acts. Speaking of strong female acts, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Alabama Shakes somewhere on the top two lines of the poster.
