Pretty Lights will play the Which one of the nights, 100%
Think Bjork gets the What the other night and that's it for our LNs.
Tent LOCKS/Near-Locks Boys Noize Wolfgang Gartner Porter Robinson A-Trak Four Tet Conspirator
Tent hopefuls/likely ZZ Top (Might be too big but if Alice Cooper can play LN tent I think ZZ Top can too) Beach House A$AP Rocky Jim James (and/or Superjam) Tame Impala Portugal the Man Billy Idol Earl Sweat Divine Fits Purity Ring Swans Ariel Pink
Thursday This: Earl Sweatshirt Thursday That:Four Tet Thursday Other:Purity Ring
This would be awful for me.
Same with me, dude. I'm just looking at all the artists that could play late on Thursday and I like all of them. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone I'm a little more indifferent about like Trombone Shorty slip in... but I'm expecting at least one (probably more) major conflicts Thursday night. I think I'm going to see Purity Ring in my hypothetical conflict but it's going to be rough. I think Purity Ring makes the most sense in the Sleigh Bells, Phantogram spot.

There have been 14 LN acts each of the past 2 years. So with that in mind...
Most Likely Contenders: Pretty Lights (100%) Bjork (will at least end in LN, so may not be straight LN act) The xx Animal Collective Superjam Portugal. The Man Boys Noize Wolfgang Gartner Porter Robinson A Trak Holy Ghost Paper Diamond Four Tet Conspirator Araabmuzik
Possible/Wildcards: Wu-Tang David Bryne & St. Vincent Dirty Projectors Billy Idol A$AP Rocky
Beach House - I think they get the SBTRKT award for the artist that should be LN but isn't going to be. Also, they may be too big for a tent.
