Also Geno, I wasn't saying that you like the band/s he mentioned, only that of all of the boarders, your musical taste fall closest inline with the word hardcore. I don't really know what falls under the hardcore umbrella.
You're discussing a radical shift in the direction and fan base of the festival. How is that logical? "Hardcore" is not as popular as you think it is. "Indie", "Folk", "EDM" and combinations and mutations of the above bring the ladies, the ladies bring the boys and they sell out the festival. Bing bang boom. Why change a winning (see profitable) formula?
These are honest questions. Feel free to address them.
I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, but perhaps Pea was right.

Ahh so this is from a personal "I like to thrash in mosh pits" stance. A ton of Sasquatch fans would disagree with you, but younger me understands.
The festival has a tendency to book one or two heavier acts a year. I wouldn't count on it changing anytime soon. There are festivals out there specifically geared towards heavier music but this isn't one of them.
we dont really have any festivals like that here though. the US never gets any good festivals like other countries do. they should atleast have some good heavy bands like soundwave (the best festival in the world) does.
its not a perfect lineup but its way better than most of the other festivals around here. Im just saying we need to bring in more heavy bands. it makes sense to bring in bands that will bring in people.
