dont like the bands? boycott buying tickets when they first go on sale that weekend thatl put some pressure to add some bands... i guess the lineup is fairly diverse... but really???? but hey i, just like the others, am just really hurt Band of Horses isnt on the roster =( yet... they were honestly the one band i wanted to see more then any other
i live in montana and on the road trip to sasq! was listening and loving michael franti but since the set he played last year i haven't turned his chunes on once. the only possible thing that made it bearable to get through was a whole hell of a lot of corn chips and excitement for the next act i imagine much like most felt for ben harper (*sigh*) waiting for FLAMING FUCKING LIPS but on a positive note hes the last act of the last day =) so no real reason to stay
i totally agree , those two are the most boring acts to close a festival, Im not saying theyre not talented , just a bit of a snooze fest for me. People keep mentioning Pearl Jam , I know theyre working on a new album , but are they really a possibility or is that just wishful thinking?

yeah, I have to agree that Monday is definately the most dissapointing day of the whole festival. Saturday is packed from top to bottom, Sunday is looking pretty good, too, but there is a definite drop-off in quality on Monday.
The band I am looking forward to right now on Monday is Golgol Bordello. From what I've heard, they're downright awesome!
Gogol Bordello, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, EITS are all good draws for the Monday... but I agree, closing out the festival with Erykah Badu and Ben Harper (who's playing new material with a new band) could be extremely disappointing.

I really had my heart set on Pearl Jam this year. A few weeks ago, their "Live at the Gorge" box set was on sale at Circuit City, so I bought it...and I thought that was a really good sign. But, no luck. Maybe next year?
I'm glad someone started this discussion, because now we can write about our disappointment, and then get over it...because Sasquatch is a blast no matter what! And seriously, JANE'S ADDICTION? It never even crossed my mind. That was a pleasant surprise for me.
For now, I'm just going to be happy with what they're giving us, which is an awesome weekend full of good shows, beautiful scenery and awesome people!
I actually enjoyed Ben Harper's set two years ago, but gotta agree that he's not the way to end the whole weekend. Headliners are certainly weak, but the addition of a dance tent and AWESOME middle-of-the-pack bands more than make up for it. I have a feeling there's at least one big addition left. Jane's Addiction and NIN coheadlining on one night?? That's huge. KOL one night and Ben Harper the other...that's not up to Sasquatch standards. We're in for a surprise...
