Here's the way I see it. Sasquatch has obviously has two stages going on that day. As you can clearly see in the link below. www.sasquatchfestival.com/#/schedule/ Green= Main Stage Blue= Bigfoot
If they're starting the festivities at 3PM and they have 3 bands on mainstage and 2 bands on the side stage, you gott figure/ deduce a couple things 1. The Foo Fighters "Angle" a) They are going to play for 3 hours. Like The Cure and NIN did on the Friday in 2006 b)They have yet to announce their Spring/Summer tour. We don't even know who they're touring with folks. It could be two pretty big names. So look for those two to fill out a couple mainstage slots. I'm betting on Mastadon and Eagles of Death Metal maybe Wolfmother?. But those are complete random guesses. c) Could they pull in QOTSA? Probably not. But with their tour ending in Los Angeles in April, with no PNW dates and just two west coast dates in California. You never do know? 2. The DFA1979 "Angle" a)They're pretty ecstatic to be back together. Or so says Sebastian: deathfromabove1979.com/some-words/ So you have to figure that they're not only just planning to do a couple "one off" festival reunion shows. They will most likely also tour. So they will at least have one supporting act.
I know what you all might be thinking. Could DFA1979 open for The Foo Fighters? I think not. If we all have our heads out of our asses. We know that's even a stupid question to ask.
So with three more bands added to the 3 we already have. That, pretty much fills up a mainstage starting at 3:00pm. Here's the proof 3:00pm Foo Fighters First opener (on tour) 4:15pm DFA Opener (on tour) 5:25pm The Bronx 6:55pm Foo Fighters Second Opener (on tour) 8:30pm DFA1979 10:00pm Foo Fighters As for the side stage. You only have to fill it up with 3 maybe 4 acts depending if you start it right at 3:00 or wait until 4:00. Either way. I think there will be some significant local adds on the side stage. Lots of Pacific NorthWest stuff. Here's my predictions, for set times for Friday's Side Stage (Bigfoot): 4:00 TBA 5:00 TBA 6:10 TBA 7:30 Rival Schools 9:00 Against Me! BTW. I think it would be a good add if they had Alexisonfire opening for Against Me!. Seeing as Dallas Green (City&Colour) is going to be there the next day anyway? But I believe we are in for some definite adds. Just wait till DFA1979 and FF announce their tours.
Kind of on the same topic. I've worked out a schedule, according to last years set times. If everyone is in agreemance that Bassnectar and MSTRKRFT will be the late night's on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The as I see it we're in for 5 more adds. 2 bands on the BIGFOOT stage on Saturday 1 band on the Yeti on Sunday 1 band on the Yeti and MAINSTAGE on Monday
OH and 8 more comedians. Tell me if you guys think that's reasonable? I believe they will all be lower tier bands. Maybe a 2nd tier type band after Matt & Kim before Iron & Wine? The main stage add on Monday will be something local and early. Like a choir or something. Maybe Wilco plays a 3 hour set and they scrape that first time slot all together?
All I know, Is that they'll pile on the Monday. And people that have tickets will be itching to get there early. GUARENTEED!

Also does anyone remember set times for Friday Sasquatch 2006? There were 8 bands. All on the mainstage. I also remember NIN taking forever to announce the special guest. It then turned out to be Bauhaus, and everyone was collectively disappointed. I believe they announced only 2-3 weeks prior to the actual event. Correct me if I'm wrong?
Maybe I'm slow cause, cause I'm old and have been on this board for too long. But is this shit directed at me?
Kinda funny. But BobbyRisigliano, doesn't even rhyme with CarmenSandiego. And I'll give you a $20 PBR if you can even reference who BobbyRisigliano is without going and searching on your little Google.
As for there being no evidence that Sasquatch will fill those slots that I suggested. I agree. But Friday 2006 they had 8 bands on the mainstage. I believe they will have to at least add 2 more. I know this for a fact, that back in 2006 those individual Friday tickets costs less than Saturday and Sunday individual tickets.
And with Foo Fighters not having announced their tour yet. It only stands to reason that those 2 bands would also play.
It better be Mastodon now that you got me all excited.
+1. That would be fucking sick!
BR: I believe The Bronx have already been opening some Foo Fighter shows this year... But they were the small club shows... And Bob Mould of Husker Du was the other. Things could be different with the stadium/theatre tour.
I think you make some entertaining points though. Something is bound to be added for Friday. I'm thinking 3 hour FF set...maybe that was the only way they would sign? Who knows..
