Must See/Definitely Maybe/Quite Possibly/No Way 2014 Edition
I made this thread the last 2 years (yes, with the same corny thread name). It's a good way of figuring out what bands are more important on the schedule than others.
Must See - Don't pick too many because these are your cannot miss shows Definitely Maybe - You don't plan on missing these shows unless paired up against a Must See Quite Possibly - You like or are intrigued by these artists and def. will go if the schedule allows, but you won't lose sleep if missed. No Way - You're friend couldn't bribe you to go to these shows
* = dropped down a level because I've already seen live ** = dropped down two levels since I've seen live multiple times (seeing shows I've never seen before is important to me personally)

I haven't gotten much out of Albarn's solo stuff. If he does something with Blur or Gorllaz I would definitely want to be there. Same with Blake, I don't dislike him but haven't connected with any of his music. For Deafheaven, I just can't handle the screamo vocals. If their stuff was just instrumental I would dig it.

I don't understand why so many people are leaving out DARKSIDE in their must see.
They are high on my list to listen to, but haven't gotten around to it yet. They were even recommended to me on last.fm at one point because they are "similar to Volcano Choir and Run the Jewels"...which is intriguing.
Also, this thread is terrible and many of you will be missing out on some fantastic shows.
I know I will. I've got 21 bands that are a "priority" for me to see...there's no way the schedule works out where I get to all of those. Plus, there are still a lot of bands on the lineup I've yet to discover.
Must See Elton John Jack White Skrillex Superjam The Flaming Lips Damon Albarn Cage the Elephant The Glitch Mob Darkside (Assuming they are late night) Break Science Neutral Milk Hotel Slightly Stoopid
Definitely Maybe Kanye (I am going to at least see some but I'm not sure if I will stick the full thing out we will see) The Avett Brothers Phoenix Skrillex Kaskade Ben Howard Die Antwoord (At least for a little bit out of curiosity) Rudimental The Bouncing Souls Johnathon Wilson J.

Mine is pretty much this if you moved Nick Cave, Frank Ocean and Darkside to "must" and moved Damon/Phoenix down a tier. I've already seen Phoenix at Roo and never really got into Blur or Damon's solo stuff. Nick Cave is my #1, won't miss him for anything. Also, I just saw NMH and it was incredible, will not miss.
