I know it is really really early for this, but there is already a 2013 Quasi Thread so what the hell. This needs to happen. It is a shame she has never been on the farm. Ashley start making calls now. This would allow me to forgive Bonnaroo for the Unchained debacle.
Wiki Björk Guðmundsdóttir, born 21 November 1965), known as Björk, is an Icelandic singer-songwriter. Her musical style is eclectic and she has achieved recognition in rock, jazz, electronic dance music, classical, and folk. Björk's 1990s singles "It's Oh So Quiet", "Army of Me" and "Hyperballad" charted in the UK Top 10. Her record label, One Little Indian, reported that by 2003 she had sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. She has acquired a high level of critical acclaim. She has won four BRIT Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, one MOJO Award, three UK Music Video Awards, and, in 2010, the Polar Music Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, in recognition for her "deeply personal music and lyrics, her precise arrangements and her unique voice". Björk has also been nominated for twelve Grammy Awards, one Academy Award and two Golden Globe Awards. She won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival for her performance in Dancer in the Dark. She was ranked thirty-sixth in VH1's "The 100 Greatest Women in Rock and Roll", eighth in MTV's "22 Greatest Voices in Music", and sixtieth in Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Singers of All Time".

i'd rather portishead show up, but Bjork is acceptable
one of those things is not like the other.
Agreed on the first line, but I'd be excited for Björk regardless. Not sure what you mean about her on the Which stage, I think she'd be great on it. MMJ and FLips have both done LN Which, I think she'd be much more in line with that.
-When I Hear My Name -Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground -Blue Orchid -Passive Manipulation -Red Rain -Death Letter -My Doorbell -Hotel Yorba -Same Boy You've Always Known -Lovesick -Little Ghost -We're Going to Be Friends -The Hardest Button to Button -Black Math -The Nurse -I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself
Encore: -Ball and Biscuit -Seven Nation Army -Screwdriver
I can get behind Lil Wayne and Skrillex being awful, but SCI? Definitely not my scene, but I have respect for them. They're a good band in their own right. Also their bass player came around our camp last year and gave us a bunch of bottled beer from a brewery he owns part of. Cannot hate on SCI.
5/4 The Breeders

7/14 Phish or Wire
Headlining Coachella and headlining Bonnaroo are totally different. That doesn't mean she is not worthy. I could see MMJ or even Jack White headlining ahead of hear, but that is because the type of crowd bonnaroo has. If she plays Roo I think she will be billed 4th but probably have a LN What set like Jay-Z had.
Something like: What Stage...MMJ (9:00-11:00) > Bjork (12:00-2:00)
