Aside from the Cure's early announcement for Sasquatch 08, in which they confirmed a Seattle make up show originally near Halloween of 07, the Sasquatch festival has typically had very few confirmed acts prior to the lineup release. At this time last year, the festival had only two, PB&J (who canceled), and Sun Kill Moon.
This year, Pavement became the second early confirmation, and because their reunion is a huge draw, tickets went on sale immediately. Now, we already have our third confirmation, Vetiver, adding to Neon Indian and Pavement. So although the rumor mill is a bit slow with the lineup announcement roughly a month away, we will have much to talk about in the next two months. This is typically the time of year acts announce their spring/summer tours, so the rumors will be in full force in the next couple weeks.
