I count 56 on the Sasquatch website...not including The Mars Volta. Unless they are planning on allowing longer sets than previous years then they will definitely need a few more bands to fill up all 3 stages.

Yeah I like the possibility of City&Colour being there? Was wondering a couple things. 1. Breeders closing a second stage possibly? 2. Tegan and Sarah definitly not Main Stage right? 3. Chris Walla putting on a solo show on small stage? 4. Postal Service? 5. Oh and where the heck is Harvey Danger or Nada Surf? I mean Harvey Danger didn't show last year except for a guest appearance during the Long Winters (Yawn!) and they releasd a disc last year. Also Nada Surf just released "Lucky" and its as solid as "This Weight is a Gift"? Are they in Europe? Both those bands could headline a side stage if ite 3 days. 6. Where's Tokyo Police Club? They're touring like mad men they'll have been to Calgary 5 times in the last year. And I'm pretty sure anyone who saw they're set last year that they put on a pretty energetic show. Albeit I believe the Mainstage was closed during their set due to the Winds, so they had more fans than expected. 7. Could we still see a solo Eddie Vedder Set? Probably not but? 8. Who's stocked to finally see M.I.A! I bet she puts on one of the best performances of the weekend cause she missed last year. 9. Do you think Sasquatch feels obligated to bring back bands that get shafted from previous years. I read that last year they called the Long Winters first because the first year they appeared @ the festival they got shut down half way through their set?? Wish I could source the quote?? And they also brought Neko Case Back cause of the hail storm. And this year Micheal Franti and Spearhead are back cause they got pooped to side stage because of Winds. Can't believe peeps actually skiped the Beasties to see this guy, when you can just see him this year but on a bigger stage. Plus if any of you on the message board have heard of "Shambala" a summer festival in BC. He plays there almost every year. Still doesn't answer the fact that Ozomaliti is at the 'Quatch for the 2nd year in a row. I get it, you play your instruments in the crowd. Fantastic! Still dissapointed that Weezer isn't in the line-up. And other than M.I.A there isn't much in the way of a Hip-Hop contingioncy? That I'm farmiliar with. I am stocked though that Ghostland Observatory is back. Anyone that missed them last year, don't make that same mistake twice.
yeah, ghostland was a total surprise for me last year. what's the deal with this mars volta crap? they're confirmed, they're not confirmed, they're a rumor....i never even heard speculation about mars volta until today. what's happening with them?
So I saw on Radioheads website today that they have released the dates of eight shows in May that are mostly on the eastern seaboard and texas. That's all right and everything but it also gives about 10-15 more tentative locations for dates that they will do in August? What are they doing for the 2 and a half months in between. And for a band that says they want to be more carbon neutral, stopping a North American tour for that long to go overseas and then come back would be absured? Unless they plan to tour South America for almost a month and half?
If you looked on the tour dates page of their website you would see that they're in Europe through June and July.
