That actually wouldnt be THAT bad for me. It would be the first year I've attended where I wasnt really excited for a headliner, but also the first year where I would probably see all of them. The exception could be the Black Keys if there is something good in the dance tent.
The only headliner I saw last year was the Foos and I had an amazing weekend. This is why I can't really get too upset if the headliners are as lame as what everyone is thinking they will be...still going to be an awesome time.
Just because this is the rampant speculation thread I'll throw this out there. I can't see them straying too far from last year's model since it was a the fastest sellout (except when they tried to release more tickets that they couldnt sell on stubhub). The reunion acts last year weren't a big hit so I dont see snacks going out of his way to get something like that back again. I'm expecting just as much if not more EDM acts, perhaps a 3rd late night set and at least 1 big mainstream headliner.
More EDM doesnt really matter much to me. It stays in the dance tent and late night sets and is easily avoidable if it isnt something I am interested in. Big headliners can be hit or miss, but I never see all of the headliners anyway so if the big name isnt something I'm interested in I'll get over it. My biggest concern would be a really lazy undercard. If they blow their wad on huge EDM acts and headliners and just fill the daytime with crap I will be pretty choked.
And I'm with stormy, if I see lots of pacifiers I might have to reconsider my lifelong commitment to this festival.

This is my biggest worry to. I can't say I would blame them because that is clearly what was most successful last year but I just worry that I'm less and less part of the target audience. I'm still hoping snacks says fuck you and books people like Portishead, Nick Cave, and The Cure as the headliner
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.
