CHVRCHES on the 24th
Looking for a ticket too.
Is anyone planning on driving there from the LA area?
Elvis Costello & The Imposters added.
Schedule is up, a full 45 days before the festival.
HINT HINT COACHELLA.
Hahaha. Wow. That is actually pretty hilarious.
Also, the scheduling sucks at Sasquatch this year.
EDIT: Seriously. What is Sasquatch thinking putting Vampire Weekend on the Bigfoot. VW had, quite possibly, the biggest crowd of the weekend in 2010. It was just massive. That is going to be an absolute clusterfuck.
I have no idea what they were thinking with that one. Mackelmore and VW probably have a massive overlap in fanbase that will all be super pissed off by this.
Grimes on the bigfoot for an hour while the mainstage is empty also ensures a massive crowd for her set.
Other than that it seems pretty good to me. I love the hour hole between Elvis Costello and Mumford so he can run long if it wants to.
Not able to get to Coachella this year but I'm in the boat for Sasquatch. Definitely a weird feeling not being on the Coachella grounds and checking out the live webcasts instead.
With that being said, I'm excited to check out this festival! I found way more solid undercards than I do for a Coachella lineup.
Yeah, the VW downgrade makes no sense. They had a huge crowd at Coachella in the early evening in a sandstorm. I can't see how they wound up on Bigfoot, even as a stage headliner.
In general, it looks like they have a lot of acts starting simultaneously; will make band browsing a bit more of a challenge.
Bummed I can no longer go. If anyone's in the bay area and needs passes, I'm selling two at face value. PM if interested.
I just don't get Mumford & Sons as top billing. Poor fit for Sasquatch.
Mumford is headlining Glastonbury, which is a festival about 5x the size of Sasquatch. They sold out a 25000 person venue in Vancouver in seconds, there is no question they are the most popular band of the lineup.
I'm tempted to just book plane tickets to Seattle in case I can snag cheap craigslist tickets..I have family and friends up there, so it wouldn't be a total waste to just hang in the city.
Davers-I think we have met at sasquatch a few times-we always have the pink !!! flag..think you stopped by our campsite in a sailor outfit last year, I could be wrong though..
Yep I am the guy you are thinking of! I saw your flag off in the distance last year and drunkenly decided I had to come say hi. It was great to see you guys and if you make it again this year I will be sure to find you guys again.
If you just book a plane ticket and wait until a week or two before the fest you won't have any problem getting a ticket for face. Tickets on craigslist and stubhub have slowly been coming down, so once a few hundred people realize that they can't make it for whatever reason there will be cheap tickets abound.
I'm thinking about driving up that weekend and seeing if I can get a ticket for relatively close to face value + service fees. What do you think the possibilities are? Worse case scenario I just go to Seattle and hang out for a day or 2.
Passes will definitely lower in price considerably in about 2-3 weeks.
I've been browsing Portland Eugene/Corvallis craigslist. Scalped tickets are still a bit high. If anyone in the Portland area comes across 2 extra tickets for $350-400 I'd appreciate the heads up.
So just picked 2 wristbands up in Portland for 350 each and purchased plane tickets-so much for taking a year off!
Still looking for 2 more tickets if anyone hears of anything.
Wow, Coachella certainly is screwing over everyone going to Sasquatch with their tickets going on sale this Friday. Don't they realize that tons of people go to both festivals?
So how was it?
Best festival experience of my entire life.
Mine too. Amazing.
How was this year better than prior years?
Well for me it was the largest fest I've ever been to (never been to a Coachella or a Roo) and my first Sasquatch, so can't really say how it compared to previous years, but it was amazing. Primus is so good live nowadays and was easily the best show I've seen all year (they were the best act I saw in 2012 too). Macklemore and Lumineers both turned in amazing sets as well, not JUST them, but those were two more standouts. Two of the four days the weather was perfect and the Gorge is just an awesome location and being my first time there I was pretty awe-struck by the view.
