Geezus, can't you even reach as far as Arcade Fire? Still yesterday, but a yesterday within the lifespan of a valuable sponsor demographic.

Ooh, they're playing "Jungle Love" -- where's my BIC lighter?
The key demographic here are wealthy middle-aged guys who grew up thinking the Doobie Bros and Steve Miller were cool. They don't want to hear Coldplay, Jay Z, or even Hootie and the Blowfish. These rich guys are the ones who pay to go the dockside parties, not the hipper, younger crowd.
