    Default Sasquatch Festival 2012

    http://sasquatchmusicfestival.blogspot.com/

    Looks like it will be 4 days again this year. I know its far north, but the Gorge is by far my favorite venue. Anyone else planning on going next year?

    It'll be my 2nd year going. Driving up this time with friends and visiting the people I met in Vancouver before the event.

    Same. I might push for this upcoming year but something needs to pull me in besides the amazing venue.

    My favorite part of the analysis was this:
    11th Anniversary: Guess what? Sasquatch is celebrating another birthday this year. Who wants birthday cake?

    I highly recommend this Festival. The setting, people and atmosphere are all phenomenal. I went in '09 and stayed in GA Camping and then when I went in '10 and stayed at Wildhorse. Had a fabulous time both years. I'd really like to go again someday. Though now that I don't live in Seattle, the logistics are more complicated.

    I think I'll be attending again this year, unless other travel plans occur. It is a great venue although the food is awful.

    Thanks for starting this thread, I will be back there this year. I'm hoping they have early bird tickets this year.

    I'll be there. The lineup last year wasn't perfect but I still had a hell of a lot of fun.

    Any thoughts on headliners?

    Effing Ticketbastard!!

    Sell Out?: No, I mean will tickets for the festival sell out. Sorry for the confusion. Many feel Sasquatch 2012 will sell out regardless of the lineup. I disagree. Yes, the festival sold out early again this year, but those crafty folks at Ticketmaster kept a handful of passes on their sister site, TicketsNow, which is basically them scalping their own tickets for increased profit. When those tickets didn't sell out, they put the passes back on sale for regular price on their main site a couple weeks before the festival. Those paying attention could have bought a four day pass for nearly $100 less than face value, because the market was saturated with more tickets than people wanting to change their holiday plans. Conclusion, the festival will need a much better lineup, or a giant headliner to guarantee a sell out in 2012.

    I can dig Black Keys, not Justice. I'd rather see them in the DFA spot from last year.

    Nice, that is one of my stops. Are you meeting up with your neighbors from last year at all?

    Just moved to Portland. Planning to go to Sasquatch for the first time this year. Have always wanted to see a show at the Gorge.

    Is Radiohead possible this year? Or are they too big?

    It's possible but they would be a departure from the direction the festival has taken the last couple years. If they did play I'd expect a pretty weak lineup on the remaining three days.

    I've been advocating a Radiohead solo show at the Gorge for years. What an amazing experience that would be. Sigur Ros too.

    Haven't been since '08 but might just be able to swing it again this year since the husband just landed a new, non-catering job. Memorial Day Weekend was always off limits but not anymore!

    No way we'd ever do General Camping again, though. Used to back in college when tripping and/or drinking all night was ours and our friends' activity of choice. Now I like to sleep. At least a few hours a night.

    This, the rest of the days would be lackluster in comparison to the Radiohead day. But I think there is a high chance Radiohead is there this year.
