I think it should be ......Boards of Canada.
39 metal bands and a three hour show from him. Perfect.
It should be Ryan Adams.
He would play with EVERY band! He would be all over the arcades! He would love the lazy river! (probably, I have no idea his views on swimming).
or Calvin Johnson
After announcing a reunion gig
Dethklok destroying Finland
would be fun. Yeah! Ol' Dirty Uncle at the helm!
I'd pick some good shit.
And then Neubauten for the NBC 2010
Either that or me, obviously.
Super Furry Animals.
The DrownedinSound message board.
would be incredibly diverse. The possibility of seeing unknown 'world music' (sorry) soloists and groups alongside say Plaid, LFO, Matmos, Antony and the Johnsons, Rahzel etc would be great. Plus very few groups are likely to say no to her.
I second Brian Eno. Andrew WK has great taste but not really the stature of a curator position. They should get 2-3 record labels to curate. I won't bother writing a list.
Which would suck a bit.
They just played one. Gallo i think.
Think that might have been the one that got cancelled. I too might have completely made that up, but they were def down to do one many years ago.
but the event was cancelled due to "unexpected cost rises and scheduling complications that would have required the festival virtually to sell out before enough funds were generated to stage the RE~TG festival in the manner orginally intended by Throbbing Gristle". It didn't sell out.
Throbbing Gristle eventually played the Nightmare Before Christmas festival later that year (curated by the Chapman brothers)
I am so gutted i fucking missed them then. Sill pisses me off.

festival. A headline act of Thee Majesty might have been the most confusing thing I would ever see. And/or the most awesome.
He'd get all kinds of interesting stuff on the bill.
they're not that good
they aren't that good
David Sylvian (not the biggest fan, but I reckon his choices would be spot on)
Animal Collective (the only likely one)
or Kieran Hebden
Summertime is party time
It's going to have to be someone ridiculously good/unexpected otherwise every single person will go to the pavement one (probably).
Outside vote for Aphex Twin - he's been around a lot lately and would provide the crowd pull...
ticks all the boxes-indie darling, lots of contacts, great and diverse taste.
neutral milk hotel
aka the ex Mae Shi
I'm not even joking - it'd be fucking amazing.
