    You sure its the full lineup? It says May 5th.
    I'm intrigued by this, good music, good yoga, cheap price. But I'm sore those resorts are expensive but we will see. Maybe the full lineup tomorrow will intrigue me

    It's only a partial lineup, and it's a pretty good lineup. Cost too much, but the lineup is good.

    Pretty sure I'm going. I just found out about this. Sounds quite lovely. I'll drive that far to see BSS...

    Tickets are a bit steep, but oh well...

    If BSS announce a California tour right around then, then I'll just stay home and see them here.

    Crazy, I've never heard of this until now. This is basically a 35 minute trip for me, but fuck, things are always so overpriced at Squaw Valley.

    I like the lineup so far, though. I hope some local promoters get a chance to snag a couple of acts and bring them to Reno. Specifically, BSS, Sharon Jones, Spoon and Amanda Palmer..

    Wait so is there no camping in the immediate area? (And by that I mean within 30 minute driving distance?) There's no way I'm going to this if I have to stay in a hotel....

    I've never been to Tahoe in my life though, and it's about time, so that's part of the reason I'm interested as well...

    Nevermind I don't think that's what you meant by "overpriced".

    Actually, the more I look at the event, the more I like it. The price for a 3-day pass is $124.50, fees and shipping included.

    The idea if taking a lift up 8000ft to the main stage is pretty badass. I think I'm down for this..

    And pancakes, there are TONS of camping right around Truckee which is only about 15-20 minutes away.

    Alright sweet, I figured Tahoe would be a haven for great camping but I'm not very familiar with the Northern Sierra at all.

    But really... the potential scenery of this thing really seals the deal for me. It sounds pretty special.

    And if we're only looking at 20-30 bands over a 3-day period, would that just mean a 1 stage festival? That would be kind of interesting. Also really adds to the appeal.

    It looks like 3 stages...technically.

    A Main Stage on top of the mountain, one in the Village for late night shows, and one for local talent in the events plaza.

    But the way it's scheduled, (Main stage from 12-8p, second stage from 9p til midnight), none of the acts will overlap.

    They have a partial list of set times already up on the website in the "Lineup" section, it looks like they'll be adding a few more night acts for Sunday.

    Sunday's Main Stage lineup looks solid - The Honey Brothers> Amanda Palmer> Mates Of State> BSS> Andrew Bird> Spoon

    Pretty good lineup. Didn't Dinosaur Jr. play last year? I vaguely remember them putting this same fest on last year and I heard a lot of good reviews about it.

    You were thinking of the King of the Mountain event held in February '08, the Roots were also there with the Crystal Method and a few others. It was also at Squaw and was pretty fucking nice.

    I don't know about this. To me, Squaw = the West Face of KT-22 on a powder day. But a music festival at high camp sounds pretty sweet. The lines to get up on the tram must be a disaster. 8,000 ft, don't forget your sunscreen!

    I found the website for the Tahoe Sierra Century pretty informative..

    The links to the campgrounds are in the link to the Tahoe Sierra Century site..

    So what time does the music usually start on Friday? Thanks.

    Camping:

    Camping is not available at Squaw Valley, however, several campgrounds are located within 2 miles of the start/finish on Hwy. 89 between Truckee and Squaw Valley alongside the Truckee River (toilets and water, but no hot shower facilities). The closest campground with showers is in Truckee at Donner Memorial State Park - (530) 582-7894 - see link below.


    It is highly advisable to check availability with each campground as seasonal closures vary.

    Donner Memorial State Park (Closest Campground with showers)
    Tahoe SRA
    DL Bliss State Park
    Silver Creek Campground (US Forest Service)
    Goose Meadows Campground (US Forest Service)
    Granite Flat Campground (US Forest Service)

    Oh man, I'm so tempted. I just need some more pieces of the lineup. How is spearhead headlining? (Or at the top of the poster) I have nothing against MF or spearhead, but I don't think they can headline any festival like such

    Haha, that would be awesome. At least for one night. I wouldn't mind camping at all though... but I am going to this alone...

    I'm also really nervous about BSS cancelling and this all amounting to nothing for me, they've had an unusually bad track record of cancelling festival appearances in the last year for some reason... but oh well, at least the festival itself is really nice.

    That scares me too! And I can really see it happen...
    Do you happen to know the prices of any local camp sites near the fest?

    Ehh, not off the top of my head, but within the range of $15-30 a night... I checked out a few camgrounds but I haven't looked into it very seriously yet. I'll probably just take whatever's closest.

    So I guess this means it starts Friday at 6PM and ends at 8PM on Sunday..


    All tickets are 3-day festival passes (Friday at 6 p.m. through Sunday at 8 p.m.)....
    Also, it mentions that VIP tickets give you preferred access to late night shows.

    I'm curious as to which artists will be doing this and what time they will be...
