    They realize Coachella and Stagecoach took years to build up consistent success before they were able to only sell 3-day passes, right? Then again, the fact that they have "VIP performances" means...

    Yeah, I can't see all 3 Squamish headliners playing (especially since none of theirs did last year), and Sam Smith is surely the least likely of them, but Mumford and Drake are logical crossovers....

    Phenomenal live band. For full albums, I would suggest starting with their 3rd album, West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, and go anywhere from there. They don't have a bad album, even though their...
