Well, this looks like a good enough thread to drop in on. I'm a Bonnaroo, (Inforoo) regular that is going to give Sasquatch a try this year. Not big on Jam bands, so not real interested in Phish being at Roo. Plus they raised prices in VIP, cut out the food, unless you want to pay 194.00 for six meals. The indy band selection is stellar and I'm hoping some of those crossover to Sasquatch. Everything I hear about Sasquatch is good, so can't wait to see a lineup. I'm from Minnesota and our 10KLF festival took a major crap, in my opinion with two nights of WSP. That being said, Sasquatch will be my only festival this year. One question, when can we expect to see a lineup?
Um to actually answer your question..
The lineup usually comes out around the third week, or the end of February. I think the initial lineup was announced on Feb 25th last year. They usually announce a few additions a couple weeks later.
Thanks for the info. Looks like a good time. I need a change. Too many Phish fans this year at Roo. On top of the fact that Roo is being a bit greedy with the VIP packages. The meal plan is 194.00 per person for 6 meals total. 32 bucks a meal, they have to be F'ing kidding. Plus they raised the VIP tickets themselves, not happy. The topper is the heat. Being from MN I don't do extreme heat. Everyday is 90+ with topped out humidity and no shade anywhere. If a big storm comes in, that's a 700 acre farm with nowhere to hide. I'm not going to say it's not a great time, it's just time for a break. Waiting for this lineup is going to kill me.
P.S. Travis Hay from the blog Ear Candy is saying that the Sasquatch! lineup will be announced on the 17th, which in years past (except last year) has been when the announcement has been made the Tuesday after Presidents day. He is a pretty trusting source.
