    Default Sleeper Acts

    Which band do you think will surprise the audience with a great performance?

    Kings of Leon would be my guess.

    After their 2004 set, where (sadly) three quarters of us left Gang Of Four to see one of the most amazing sets the Polo Fields have ever seen ... I can't see HOW you'd call them a sleeper.

    EDIT: Never mind. I thought you meant acts that would put you to sleep.

    although i am a k.o.l. fan, the live performance pretty much sucks...of course both times i saw them they followed secret machines...talk about kicking yourself in the nuts...

    I must agree with three posts up - Justice is going to tear up whatever tent they play on Saturday and they'll be on early so don't be tardy. I like my coffee black just like my techno (visit their myspace and check Phantom Pt. 1 and Waters of Nazareth).

    Holy crow, I just went over to the Busdriver mypage and that's something special too (taste Kill Your Employer).

    I don't know if these are real sleepers or not, but I think both The Coup and Rodrigo y Gabriela are gonna kill on Sunday. They are two of my absolute must-sees for the entire festival.

    edit: and above poster reminded me that I need to check out more stuff by the Fratellis

    In response to some of the above...

    The Frames fucking KILL!

    Hot chip is a party in my pants!

    Of Montreal is craptastic.

    Kings of Leon are good, but not great.

    I am looking forward to Explosions in the Sky blowing my ass out! My cash goes to girl talk and Gogol Bordello (of those that I have not seen)
