Let's face it--We can't get enough of live music. Sasquatch rocks (duh), but what are your other favorite US festivals to visit?

I've only ever gone to Sasquatch (other than Ozzfest and Warped back in the day), but I'll finally get to add Coachella to my resumé this year. Can't wait to have a new fest to compare to Sasquatch!

I haven't been to any of those festivals aside from Bumbershoot, which is basically where I grew up. Lollapalooza has always intrigued me, and the past few ACL line-ups have been inviting. I put "other" because my favorite non-Sasquatch festival has to be either Reading of Outside Lands. Probably Reading due to the stacked line-ups they get year after year. The living conditions and the people can go to hell, though.

I'd be willing to go to all of the festivals listed here... except for, maybe, Wakarusa.

The only other one I've been to was Coachella '99 and '07... I also went to Woodstock '99. My girlfriend went to 'Roo '08 and wants us to go one year, but we have an obligation to the 'quatch and all of our Quatchers. I'm not sure when we'll make it there, but I'm sure we will one day.

Yeah, I voted Coachella simply because that's the only one I've been to. Shit, I've lived in the seattle area since I was 3, and I still haven't been to Bumbershoot. I'd really like to go to sxsw sometime, but it seems like a lot of work. Honestly one of the biggest reasons I prefer Sasquatch to Coachella is that sasquatch is way more relaxing. WAY more. Coachella was too much work for my tastes, honestly. And too damn hot.

Only if 2011 is a complete disaster (which it won't be, so no).

Before attempting to be , I8, how about reading the titles? You linked a poll for overall favorite fests. Mine polls OTHER NON-Sasquatch fests.

Nice try.
