    Thanks mate, feeling fairly gutted about this right now. Pity it is mid morning over here otherwise I'd be drowning my sorrows, on the other hand it is Saturday mid morning...

    I think we'll carry on with our trip and just make the most of that weekend. Our plan was to drive from Seattle to Portland via Sasquatch so might now just spend more time in Seattle as sounds like there will lots happening that weekend, anyone have any recommendations for places to stay/visit between Seattle and Portland or in the general Columbia River area as we now have a bit of spare time on our hands?!

    I suspect some of the bands will now add Seattle area shows, as they probably had tours organized around being in the area anyway.

    I'll send you a pm for some suggestions. I lived in Portland for a little bit and work up in the area every once in awhile. There's plenty to explore, so once you figure out what bands are playing when you will get a good gameplan

    Who else is to blame? What are the mistakes/lessons here?

    -lineup strength/aging demographic/Squamish going prime time
    -conflicting holiday plans
    -too hot at the venue in the day time
    -too expensive/doing lineup & on sale at the same time/6 weeks apart

    Less than 2 weeks ago they were still doing July updates on facebook, then a couple weeks of only May updates.

    Tickets sales must have been very bad if they never offered single day passes or other ticket promos hoping they make it up on booze sales.

    The cancel fees won't be cheap. It wouldn't surprise me if 30% of the talent budget is non-refundable.

    That explains why I couldn't find the purchase ticket link the other day. A big bummer, and I need to see Kraftwerk but I don't want to shell out 70 bucks...

    Neutral Milk Hotel at the Gorge was going to be one of the defining experiences of my life. Fuck this. FUCK. THIS.

    The Portland Bluesfest is on that weekend. Free in (except for Sunday) with the donation of some canned goods as it's in aid of the Food Bank. Sunday has Gregg Allman headlining and a ticket is required. It's a fun place to go; it's down by the river. http://www.waterfrontbluesfest.com/

    Nick Cave is playing Portland on the Saturday night; I'm going to that hence I didn't get a ticket for Julyquatch.

    Hood River is a neat little town to visit in the Gorge.

    That would be great. Portland would be even better but I'm getting used to be shafted by touring bands.

    Too bad it got cancelled. That was a great lineup but needed one or two more acts at the top.

    First western Canadian performance by KW in 39 years, 2nd ever. New Order is the first full show in Western Canada since the 1980's!!

    KW played Seattle in 2004 and NO played there last year with Johnny Marr.

    If Robyn/Royksopp end up playing in Seattle on the 4th or 5th, we may just end up in Seattle for the weekend anyway.

    I'd imagine that the groups with tours routed around the festival will make priority to book local shows.

    Acts flying in just for Sasquatch would be free to book another festival that weekend. What's happening in Europe that weekend?
