New rumors, confirmations....

Todd Barry is now confirmed for the comedy/dance tent via his myspace page.

And the Walkmen are rumored, as they are touring with Kings of Leon.

However, rumors of Public Enemy, King of Khan, Neko Case, The Black Lips and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs are unfounded at this point, unless someone has some links...

Yes, I'm being a prick about this and yes you will likely think it's a load of shit but I've been given the names of five top tier bands that are playing (Kings of Leon is one. I can mention that one because they're already listed as confirmed from other sources). This is first hand from a guy who KNOWS.

I'm not going to say who they are because I promised I wouldn't but what intrigues me is that four of them could very well be headliners. None of them have been mentioned on this blog from what I can tell but I haven't read every post and comment. The other is in keeping with the same vibe as Kanye in 2005.

Is it possible that Sasq will be a four day fest this year?

just saw that the dates have been confirmed and it's a three day festival not four so I guess one of the four I was referring to is a sub-headliner.

Really: how about NOT being a prick and throwing some names out. Just give us one or two.

And what do you mean by a "Kanye vibe"? Do you mean a hip-hop / rap headliner? If so, the only name that comes to mind on Kanye's level that could play to a rock festival crowd is Jay-Z. And that would be sweet.
