You need to make up your mind about Deerhunter and Gang Gang Dance. Definitely or probably? Also, thank you for abandoning the stupid percentage odds that nobody believed.

the dear hunter > deerhunter

Just wondering how you know any of this and why we should trust you.

Not to be a negative nancy. I want to believe you, but can you give us any reassurances you actually have a source and aren't just making things up?

trust me or not, that's your own choice.

my sources are four people (3 lifelong friends and 1 random other person that I annoy). they work for various companies that touch most parts of what you need to run a successful music festival (booking/tours, personal agency type things, record label, etc....)

these 4 people do not know each other, so I feel safe saying this without blowing up my own spot, but why bother blowing up my own spot in the first place by revealing more and ruining it for myself and others.

so believe me or not. i'm not forcing you to do so.

also, after listening to samples on itunes, the dear hunter is awful. wow. that other deerhunter should change their name just to avoid association.

Just hurry up and ask your sources who the headliners are asshole!
