I’m a lurker but a 5-time attendee who’s still thinking about his best Sasquatch experience yet.
I never partied past 3am in any of my 4 previous experiences. I saw the sun come up twice this weekend. I befriended a 20-year old lesbian (I’m 33) and became her hetero Canadian powerdyke life partner. I hugged a guy at Little Dragon who shortly thereafter dropped trou and repeated a scream of “Fuck! Pants!”, which became my mantra Sunday night>Monday morning. I watched too many amazing performances to keep count of. I am not a dancer; I danced more this weekend than I have in my life combined (I’m 33). I did beer bong shots out of a plastic flamingo. I saw The Fucking Roots.
I may or may not have spoke to you, partied with you, run into any of you this weekend, but as part of my collective Sasquatch experience, I feel compelled to tell everyone on this board, lurkers and regular posters alike: thank you!
I know about half a dozen people that said they weren't going to attend Sasquatch next year. ALL of them have changed their mind. Were they pumping molly vapor into our tents or something?? I've never seen such an overwhelmingly positive response from people afterward.
I also have to add on behalf of my friend who celebrated her birthday at Sasquatch this year (we were wearing purple party hats on Thurs & Sat), you gave her one hell of a 34th birthday. But don't tell her I told you her age.
I think if I decided to do sasq again next year I'd want it to be a slightly different experience... given I was sick all weekend so maybe thats all it was, but my group was loser-drunk-hardcore-partying most of the time (which, Ill admit, I was a part of and found hilarious at various points), but then you would walk by other campgrounds where they are working together to make breakfast and they wouldn't be sitting around a mound of garbage. Being sick + the hot days made it hard for me to want to head into the grounds early too, so I missed a ton of bands I would have liked to check out. Next year I'm taking antibiotics for the week before sasq.

The only thing Coachella has going for it is giant LED lights and expensive headliners. I don't know why I got caught up in the hype. The attendees are pure fucking garbage compared to the goofballs at Sasquatch. We know how to fucking PARTY up here.
