Zoom969, Those are some good wish's. Don't know this will destroy you. I'll check em out. As for the other thread on the pop punk bands. I am not going to dispute your "inside knowledge" as i don't have any. and i know the world is going thru that little thing called an economic crisis. All i'm saying its kinda strange to deviate from the Sasquatch formula so much. Not complaining all that much. I used to enjoy Yellow Card and RJA to a certain extent. It just seems to me that the reception that a band like Simple Plan wouldn't get the friendliest reception let alone a big crowd. There's not a lot of teeny boppers that attend. But maybe thats what Live Nation and Adam Snacks are trying for? I believe that The Gorge would actually have something to say about the type of lineup. They dont want the Quatch taking to many Warped Tour fans away.
IMO, including bands like that would do the festival a lot more harm than help. Not that it needs help at all. Sasquatch consistently has great lineups, and tickets are considerably cheaper than comparable festivals, not to mention the Gorge is a good sell in itself.
I think ccoult is right , MGMT missed pemberton(still sour about that) and they are playing bonnaroo this year so i guess that makes them possible, i havent seen them , but i heard they were bad live at first but have been getting better, I saw some clips from their lalapalooza set and it looked very sweet, crowd went nuts
