So Big Boi just announced a bunch of dates with Killer Mike opening each day. Including playing dates on 05/24, 25, 26. This makes me think that either Killer Mike is out or Big Boi is a late add. More than likely the sooner.
Also HAIM is opening for Vampire Weekend right up to and including the Oregon date right before Sasquatch. Makes me think that HAIM is likely a late add.
Thoughts on these obvious observations?
Big Boi's performance on the 26th is at Summer Camp where Killer Mike will not be playing.
Though I do find it surprising that Big Boi does not visit Seattle on his entire 50 show tour
Seriously though, to me the YYYs seemed more likely than almost any other band to be there this year. They have a month-long gap in their tour from May 19th to June 22nd and don't have any northwest dates yet. That and they're basically perfect for Sasquatch in my eyes. I was pretty devastated not seeing them on the lineup poster last month, it's the only omission that keeps this year's lineup from being my favorite yet.

Yea I think they would be a great add for a already stellar lineup. Has anyone heard chvrches? I came across them last night on the radio and they kind of remind me of the knife. Not as good but a guilty pleasure.
I agree that Monday night is weak. Frankly it almost makes more sense to have Rusko or Cake sub over The Lumineers. By far the weakest of the subs. I know this wont happen because of the poster order. If there was another sub to be added Monday is the day.
