What the fucks, I come back from the best camping trip of my life and the fucking schedules up?!?! It's not even early May. Life just keeps dishing me the sweetest of treats. Upon first, second, and third glance, my schedule looks like this:
I would be bummed about the Beats Antique conflict, but I'm seeing them at Coachella. Obviously uber stoked for a full hour of Explosions into a full-on fucking glowpocalypse. May literally have to run, and that is a true rarity for me.
Holy shit, that's a lot of different styles of music (and laughter) in one day. Skipping The Shins will be a tough blow but we all know St. Vincent will deliver the goods.
Sunday: The War On Drugs->Beat Connection->Tycho->Wild Flag->Zola Jesus->Beirut->Little Dragon->Bon Iver->Feed Me
As HG said, I too am very excited to see Beirut in that chunky sub-head slot at sunset. Gorgeous.
Monday: Conflicts were mere inconveniences until Monday. Firstly, a big fat serious fuck you for scheduling Cass McCombs vs. Cloud Cult vs. CYHSY. Cass takes the cake for me, but I really wanted to see Cloud Cult, and I dig CYHSY live quite a bit. But seriously, no cake during Cass please. That would be weird in addition to shitty.
Cass McCombs->The Joy Formidable->Awesome Tapes From Africa->Feist->John Reilly->(this is where things get super-duper-fucked) first half of Spiritualized->all of Tenacious D->most of Mogwai->last 2/3 of Beck.
Those Monday night overlaps are going to be brutal, but I'm fairly confident in my plan. I wish I could see the beginning of Beck's set, especially if he does the acoustic/electric split; as I've been deeply submersed in Sea Change as of late. Mogwai is just too much of a powerhouse to miss, though. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE, GUYZ.
I'm supposed to be getting ready for Coachella but all I can think about is Sasquatch. Saaaaasssssqqqqquuuuaaaattttccccchhhh!!!
Not sure if this helps your cause, but Cass McCombs has a show in Portland (@mississippi Studios) Wed the 30th. You could always take the long route to the Gorge.
That would officially overdose me on shows for the year. Tempting.

I am so so so happy with the schedule!! The only conflicts I have are Jack White - Wolfgang Gartner, Feist - Felix Cartal, and Beck - Mogwai - Nero. I'm going to have to do some stage hopping I'm thinking.
How far away (time wise) were the stages from each other last year?

I've waited all year to get back to sasquatch and its almost time. I don't know very many of the bands and such playing this year so if anyone knows one that is a can't miss please let me know. I'll be completely shit faced by the time I get into the grounds. Hopefully I've met some good neighbours who will help me get in safely.
Friday - Yellow Ostrich, STRFKR, Eios, Pretty Lights, Wander around camp searching for tents with djs and flashing lights.
Saturday - I Break Horses- This is who I'm most excited to see this year - Rob Delaney, Metric, The Shins, St. Vincent, Wolfgang Gartner, Jack White
Sunday - The Head and The Heart, James Murphy, Bon Iver, Feed Me
Monday - Let me the music and the booze and such pull me around all day, The Joy Formidable, Silversun Pickups, The D, Nero, Beck
I've witnessed the sound completely die three or four times in four years of going. The most memorable was during Public Enemy in 2010. The sound would cut out for a couple minutes at a time, and they kept going not realizing anything was wrong.
