I just checked and LiveNation is selling "sold-out" Sasquatch tickets still. Bonnarroo had so much demand on day one that the website completely crashed and they tried again later. Coachella sold out 2 weekends in a snap. Sasquatch is still trying to dump tickets. Pretty Lights isn't a headliner. Not even a subheadliner. Bon Iver is a subheadliner. Beck is good but been here before and is semi-retired. The whole lineup is one of the weakest yet. I go every year but you guys' have to admit that there is something wrong when festival tickets are red hot everywhere but Sasquatch. It's the truth. They better bring it next year!

Furthermore, why is Head and the Heart playing a 7pm show? First off, they were there last year playing at like noon. Why again this year? They are playing after M. Ward. He gets 45 mins and those one trick ponies get an hour. It's absurd. Probably not the reason why Sasquatch isn't selling out but it doesn't help with poor scheduling like that.

It's been months and months and I can still go to Live Nation and get a ticket. You may label me a jackass but the facts are the facts. The lineup is weak, the concert is overpriced, and they didn't get the talent for four days as evidenced by the lack of legitimate headliners. I know numerous people who have gone to 5plus sasquatches who refused to even consider purchasing at over 300 dollars with that lineup. The facts don't lie, sasquatch needs retooling or else there won't be one anymore.

This is the second consecutive year that Sasquatch has announced it sold out and then a few weeks later you could buy on the site again. The fact that they keep faking sell outs should be concerning to fans.
