Oh god, Steve Aoki sucks so hard.
About genres, bands like Cut Copy and Empire of the Sun are just pop bands who use synthesizers, they're not dj's or producers who make their music on computers. Portishead is more experimental but I wouldn't say they were electronic either.
As far as Portishead is concerned, I think they can possibly be considered electronic. Electronic is a genre, like rock is a genre. They both have many sub-genres under them. Portishead, like Massive Attack, is trip-hop. You can easily group that under the category of electronic.
I'd love to see any or all of these...

Beyond the obvious (DP, Justice, etc.), I think Two Fresh closing a tent on Thursday would be incredible. I'd also love a LN show from M83 (a nice late chill show is great, like Sigur Ros was). In fact, add Jonsi to that, although he could do a nice sunset show as well. Massive Attack would also be great (the show at Moog was incredible). I'd also love a set from RJD2 since the Moog show was at capacity and I couldn't get in. That's a set I've been trying to see for years.
The Knife would be huge for me. I really want them to tour the U.S. in some form so that I get to see their show, whether at Roo or elsewhere. Seeing as Fever Ray played Coachella last year, maybe it'll be a tiny possibility.
It seems that a ton of people want Flying Lotus. I hadn't heard of him until this year and now he's seemingly everywhere. I love the Kill Your Co-workers video.
