Jamie Lidell is supposed to have a new album out by the end of the year. Hands down my favorite live performer. Would be amazing to see him back at the festival (not that I was there when he last performed in 06)....
Animal Collective Are releasing Centipede Hz September 4.
Minus the Bear is mastering their new album now.
Beach House just came out with Bloom and are apparently blowing the fuck up.
If Pearl Jam comes out with a new album, I'll believe it, especially considering the 20 year anniversary.
Silversun Pickups fit in, but I heard disappointing reviews on Neck of the Woods.
I'm not a fan, but Garbage just released their first album in 7 years I think?
I could definitely see Edward Sharpe in the same spot Florence and the Machine played this year.
Flying Lotus will have his new album but played '10 and '12.. Dunno if I'd hold my breath on that.

The XX is also fairly blown up and may release an album this year. They said its more "club-influenced" http://www.digitalspy.com/music/news...festivals.html
Passion Pit are releasing Gossamer July 24.
The Temper Trap just released their s/t album.

not sure if the release date was announced... but Yeasayer could deff be back for 2013
Yeasayer will be releasing their new album, Fragrant World, on August 21 via Secretly Canadian.

Well... Muse played just a couple of years ago. And Smashing Pumpkins is more like "The Billy Corgan Experience" now. So, nah.
On that note, I'm inclined to agree with the people who think there will be a lot of similarities between 2010 & 2013.
