I'd love it so much if next year's lineup announcement was accompanied by a disclaimer from Adam Snack's explaining that the reason he couldn't book Deadmau5 (AGAIN) is because one of the guys on his unofficial message board is married.
I did this last year and good portion of the bands I sent to adam were on the line up.
Please make a short list of bands you think should be at sasquatch next year. Please only list large bands if there is word of a new album. The bands that have the best chance of actually showing up on the lineup are the smaller bands that adam probably hasn't heard yet.
example: dale earnhardt jr jr buke and gass geographer starfucker toro y moi modeselektor beat connection
Harlem Times New Viking The Strange Boys Fiery Furnaces Superchunk Yuck The Men Toro Y Moi EMA Kurt Vile (or was Kurt Vile there last year?) HEALTH Ty Segall Swans Titus Andronicus Panda Bear Atlas Sound Fucked Up Iceage Dan Deacon Shovels and Rope Wild Flag Xiu Xiu
those are just smaller ones (except Superchunk and Panda Bear) off the top of my head.
There were two artists that played dubstep, and neither played 100% dubstep sets. One played the late night slot and the other was in the dance tent. Both completely and easily avoidable. I'm not understanding how that was such a problem.
I didnt really mind the dubstep in the festval, but in the campground (at least in our area) it was unavoidable. I know they have no control over what people play in the campground, but man I heard so much skrillex that weekend that I went from maybe wanting to split his set with the decemberists to having no interesting in seeing him by monday.
So, I guess my issue with dubstep is more with its fans than the actual music itself.
Oh, but I agree, 2 dubstep acts is perfectly reasonable for the fest, I would just prefer if it wasnt blasted 24/7 in the campground.
I'll be honest, I can really dig the cool flashing lights but the sound of dubstep makes me want to punch something, and I think it's kind of the same thing as like Dave Matthews Band -- my objection begins and ends with and can't get beyond the fanbase.
Butthole Surfers Justice (Would be a perfect late night set) The Kills Hot Chip Mercury Rev Meat Puppets ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead Little Dragon Childish Gambino (could also add Donald Glover to the comedy lineup) Starfucker Trampled by Turtles The Joy Formidable The Morning Benders Gang Gang Dance Cloud Cult The Black Angels Rural Alberta Advantage Battles Wintersleep Tennis Anamanaguchi The Dear Hunter Unknown Mortal Orchestra Andrew Jackson Jihad YACHT Murder by Death
