Version 1 (before I listen to any of the acts I don't already know).

  • Vampire Weekend
  • Ezra Furman (Garden headliner or Woods sub? - I'd prefer the former, but if so, who would he clash with?)
  • Protomartyr
  • Shame
  • Colter Wall
  • Big Thief
  • Jeff Tweedy
  • Hookworms
  • Gruff Rhys (still remember his set + .ppt presentation last time)
  • Imarhan

And now to start in on the playlist.

Of course, best reason to post here is to laugh at how different your own list is after pre-festi listening. Easy ones:

Ezra

Aldous Harding

Vampire Weekend

Shame

Idles

Big Thief

Japanese Breakfast

Oh Sees

Then a large number to choose from for the last two slots, so 8 it is, rather than making an arbitrary choice.

Great line-up for my personal tastes, including a couple I already have tickets for.

Of the bigger names:

Vampire Weekend (pleasantly surprised by how excited for this one I am - ready to journey back to 2011) 

Feist

Julia Holter

Aldous Harding

Big Thief

And on some of the undercard, which I wasn't as excited as others seemed to be, but then I delved a little deeper, and yes, it's amazing: 

Julien Baker

Nilufer Yanya

Stella Donnelly

David Thomas Broughton

Richard Dawson

After a month or so of listening my list now looks like this

 

Idles 

Shame

Oh Sees

Hookworms

Flat Worms

Snail Mail

(As noted by others here, the noisier end of the spectrum)

The Weather Station

Soccer Mom

Julien Baker

Jeff Tweedy

God, the line up is so good I'm going armed with these 10 as my must sees hopeful for no clashes and let the rest unfold as it may. Although this list might not immediately reflect it the split between male and female acts is pretty spot on when other festivals are only just starting to talk about it.

There's so much good music at this year's festival. Thankfully I won't be restricted to 10 bands only, but now that I've checked a lot of them online I really need to revise my list.

Idles
Shame
Oh Sees
Damien Jurado
Hiss Golden Messenger
Lucy Dacus
Haley Heynderickx
Anna Burch
Soccer Mommy
The Orielles
