    Default Your Top 3 Exclusion Letdowns

    Forget all the Led Zeppelin,Radiohead,Boards of Canada,The Knife,Bowie & Prince pipe dreams.Who are the 3 acts that you feel could've been on the lineup,and weren't?
    Mine are The Pogues,Band Of Horses & Magnetic Fields.

    A lot of people seem to feel this was the year for Underworld.

    i still have hope for Underworld. Sunday definately has some room for a major Sahara addition. As well as a half dozen other adds.

    I think we'll get a couple of more suprises.

    Right now my biggest letdowns are:

    Underworld
    Goldfrapp
    the Presets

    I'm almost with Ben on this one. I was absolutely convinced that we'd get a Groove Armada return. Ulrich Schnauss and Boards Of Canada. Seriously, when are we going to get Boards? Haven't we been talking about them coming for at least 6 years? I personally love the line-up though. I don't know if I will have the energy to dance to all the great electronic acts that we have!!!!!

    I would think that they would be a really high candidate for a late add. They have a new album release concert in Feb., where they will announce an upcoming tour schedule.

    We can talk about them every year, but it won't change anything. They don't play live shows, so it is pretty unrealistic to expect them.

    Can't say there are specific acts that I'm sad are missing (aside from the pipe dreams)...just not enough of those pleasant surprises. Here's three that haven't been mentioned that would have gotten me excited:

    Burial
    Chromatics
    Yeasayer
