I wouldn't be surprised to see Alabama Shakes headline. I could dig up the Edgefield headliner one summer becomes Sasquatch headliner the next summer theory I've referenced before, but the most likely act to continue the trend would be Alabama Shakes. They sold out PNW amphitheaters this summer. The only question in my mind is whether they'll still be touring next summer.
I haven't heard Big Grams talked about for awhile. What does everyone think of their chances of being at Sasquatch this year?
Big Grams already has three festival appearances announced for next year, and neither Big Boi nor Phantogram have tour conflicts. No particular reason to believe they'll be there, but it wouldn't be a surprise either.
It is my understanding that Morgan did not participate in the new M83 record -- although nothing official has been posted as of yet, it could be that she no longer performs with the band. As much as I love White Sea, we had Morgan in 2014, and I would rather see M83 take a sub-headlining slot this year. *fingers crossed*
Actually, after comparing the Firefly and Bottle Rock lineups, I think it's less likely M83 appears at Sasquatch. Yes, White Sea (who plays in M83) will be on the West Coast for Bottle Rock, which M83 is not playing at, but why would she not be at Firefly if she's performing solo and M83 will already be there? Weird that so far it's one or the other, not both.
EDIT: M83 will play Coachella, but White Sea will not. Seems to me that White Sea is only performing when M83 is not. Hopefully I'm reading too much into this because I'd love to see M83 at the Gorge!

I am getting really excited for this announcement. So far the speculations are amazing. Have we pretty much ruled out My Morning Jacket as a potential headliner? I'm on board with Florence, LCD Soundsystem and The Cure, but I really hope that Death Cab aren't headlining...or there period.
I remain convinced that My Morning Jacket will headline Monday, despite playing in Colorado on Saturday and Sunday. But, I will remove them from the rumored list if most people disagree with me. And even though this year's festival will have been five years since they last headlined and they're local favorites, for reasons I can't explain, I don't think Death Cab will play.
