I am impressed by all the Tech and Minimal artists on this lineup. I hope other festivals follow suit. A lot of people are tired of the generic cheesy pop house shit. Even many of the big EDM festivals, especially the ones in the NorthWest totally leave out these genres.
These are some artists I'd make sure to check out. Leaving out the obvious ones.

Next year it's happening for sure as long as GV books Coachella in the same manner as this year.
SnowGlobe is about as cheap as it gets for a festival over NYE and it's a fucking blast. The combo of tickets+hotel+food+gas+enhancers only cost me a little over $400. Probably won't go next year though cause I will want to save $$$ for Coachella and Shambhala.
I will never skip Sasquatch, unless I truly HATE the lineup. And if that was the case then I would just go to Lightning in a Bottle instead of Sasquatch because they are both during Memorial Day weekend.
Yeah my plans for Bassnectar in Portland last October fell through so I never PM'd ya again to actually organize us meeting up. You guys will definitely meet me this year at Sasquatch. As far as I know of I've only met Pea, Fox, Zombie, Lahey, and Souly but I've never really hungout with y'all. Last year I got distracted before the PL glowpocalypse out of pure excitement and forgot to meet up with you guys. No excuses this year though.

I shouldn't post this for all the creepy-ass lurkers to see, but 'to the left of the sound booth' at any given stage at any given performance you're likely to find at least half a dozen of us. Just look for unicorn horns, a dude with a golden beard or a pair of party pants -- you'll know 'em when you see 'em.
Alright. Made it through the entire lineup and here are my new finds. Asterisks next to my favorites.
Cassy Guards* Ghost Huoratron* Jake Bugg Jamie Jones Joris Voorn Julio Bashmore Lee Scratch Perry Loco Dice Maya Jane Coles Savages Skinny Lister The Colourist The Neighbourhood Theophilus London* Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra* Trash Talk* Roni Size
A couple of notes...
Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra is an all Japanese ska band. What the fuck?? One of the weirdest and coolest finds of the day.
Trash Talk will be one of the gnarliest pits of the weekend. Insane hardcore punk band.
It's actually The Neighbourhood (singular), just fyi. Good list there. I really am liking Guards and Savages. I'm just now getting into this undercard. I was having a rough time with this lineup but it's growing on me.
Oops, yea I knew that about The Neighbourhood. Typo.
Yes, the metal band Ghost. How fucking weird? I've seen them on tons of metal flyers but never looked into them. Pretty awesome classic sound, and I love the Satanic imagery. Some big time King Diamond praise happening there.
EDIT: Oh, and those girls in Savages sure know how to make their guitars howl. I really love that fuzzy screaming sound they get out of them.
