I have a feeling this year's lineup will be more like 2010 than 2011.
I don't. And you aren't allowed in this thread.
Yeah although I would fucking love to have a 2010 style festival, I just see Sasquatch going further away from what is was, and going in a more mainstream style. That's just my opinion though, who knows?

World United Lucifer Youth Foundation (cuz we are allowed to do all that is annoying in this thread), anyways, so World United Lucifer Youth Foundation have left their touring schedule wide open to preposterous speculation about them 100% being at Sasquatch. This is the first Wild Speculation with a decent chance of showing up that I am excited for.

AWOLnation is more of a long term shitty radio rock band (ala Cage the Elephant). Sasquatch is usually good at grabbing artists before they even hit the radio (remember when foster the people were booked and had like 3 songs to their name, Owl City). I think whatever band they get that blows up, none of use will have heard of them before
That's a much better guess. Looking at their facebook I can't tell if they have a North American agent yet. The best predictor of the kind of push the band is going to get is if they aren't signed to a label but they are signed to a big booking agency
speaking of booking agencies, if you're really bored you can always look at a booking agencies avails to see what artists are going to be touring around sasquatch time. as an example: www.flowerbooking.com/avails/
quick scan of that and I noticed: Ted Leo and the Pharmacists April - May Special Situations / Festivals

I just checked out Grouplove and Fun on the youtubes. They do absolutely nothing for me. That Fun song is especially terrible, I'd rather listen to the "Blame it on my ADD" song all day long than hear either of that stuff again.
