    They don't tend to have much news on who will be playing until feb or march. Kitt, even if you don't think the lineup is amazing, it's always a great, great experience.

    Suicide
    maybe The Saints or Fantomas

    I have no clue for the third one
    Pitchfork can't afford to spend six figures on Arcade Fire or Portishead.

    I don't know about Deerhunter being back. They played in 07 and Atlas Sound played in 08, plus I can picture them settling down by that point to record some more. Flying Lotus will probably be there, Very Best quite possibly.

    Arcade Fire are a great call for a headliner, but I think Portishead may be too big for the fest. Last year they sold out with Spoon and Animal Collective headlining, and I definitely picture Portishead as bigger than either of them.

    As far as the Don't Look Back day, Suicide will probably open it, then they'll have their hip hop act of the day (De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest would be my two guesses) and their headliner will probably be some awesome band from the 80s. If they really want to blow minds, it'll be the Replacements playing all of Let it Be AND Tim.

    NMH wouldn't cost very much at all, I'd bet. It's just convincing him to play. I don't think the money would be much of an issue.

    If they can pay Sonic Youth, they can pay NMH.

    That's what encores are for. And DLB means less pressure to put out new material.

    And Animal Collective headlining over Jarvis Cocker was ridiculous. No offense to AC, but look at where each was billed on their respective Coachella posters. And Jarvis cost a lot more, too.

    Sonic Youth is listed as just 25-30k on prettypolly, and I think that's for a package. Maybe pollstar has more info.

    Make sure to look out for aftershows. The No Age/Abe Vigoda show was one of the most memorable things of all time for me.

    For further evidence, from Ice Cream Man:
    No Age was going to play in the basement and, as Mung started we made our way down the stairs into what looked like an abyss. Once we got down there, outside of super low ceilings, it was quite nice. There was a soundboard toward the back and a good sized PA. You could prolly fit about 200 people in there, if you wanna sardine it. Mung was a good band to start things off but it really picked up once No Age showed up. I was outside when Randy showed up so I grabbed him an Old Style. Since the drums and PA were set up it didn’t take long for them to start playing. It sounded great down there and it wasn’t even that hot… yet. People were dancing around and somehow there were crowd servers even though the ceiling was only seven feet tall. I held my composure while standing near the sound board til the kicked off “Brain Burner” then bolted for the front while dancing and banging my head. Wow… what a show, definitely the highlight of the weekend.

    Abe Vigoda, another local LA band had a gig at Empty Bottle that night then headed over to rock to basement after No Age. I’d been hearing quite a bit about them and all of our crew was jazzed to check them out. I headed outside to get some fresh air right before they started and was greeted by a blast of lightning and thunder. It was raining yet but you knew it was on the way. We thought we were safe in the dungeon but we weren’t that lucky. After a couple songs either the lead singer or sound man said, “if you want to live, you should leave. If you want to die and ROCK, you should stay”.” There was maybe an inch or two of water at this point and I don’t think it had reached the band yet. After another song the flood waters were rising and the bands gear was about to get swamped and water and electrical gear aren’t the best of friends. Most people took off and a half dozen or so of us stuck around to help get everything off the ground and out of the water. There was prolly six inches of water now and it was pouring down rain outside. We got everything secured then once it the storm lightened up a bit all the gear got loaded up and we skipped out for some gyro action. Ah… what a great night.

    I wish I could have gone to pitchfork this year. I think the lineup last year was better as a whole, though.

    Two years ago was better as a lineup, but the performances were more uniformly great this year. However, the highlights weren't as high. Clipse and Malkmus were perfect last year, but Dodos and Spiritualized did both knock it out of the park this year, and every other act was good to great, with many being fantastic.

    There's been rumors, but the last I read, Rothbury is still a go. I still think there is a chance it could get the axe though. Lots of problems w/ the community and site.

    Rothbury will be back.

    ANY promo company can purchase the land, throw the festival, pay off the debts, and still make money.
