I can get behind pretty much everything in the original post. I think the lineup is by no means bad and there are lots of bands I' m excited for. But that having been said, being the 10th anniversary and the hype surrounding it I expected bigger headliners/more diversity from groups that have run the Sasquatch gauntlet, or at least some other big announcements. I wasn't expecting Radiohead, but Daft Punk / The Black Keys would have been a nice selling point. Still 2 months out though, so we'll wait and see. Still holding out a little hope for Queens of the Stone Age, Melvins, Fang Island, Lightning Bolt, HEALTH, or other good bands to be added, primarily to Friday.

I see this has become another toilet thread, but if I may jump on late...
I think my disappointment stems from the fact that I consider Sasquatch "my" festival, and now it isn't as cool. It'll still be great, but the brand has taken a hit because of the lineup. THis has nothing to do with ticket sales or anything, just perception.
I also will again bring up the fact that Primavera steals all the good bands, and we need their booking manager instead.
