Also, I'm relistening to that Macklemore album... I'm actually diggin it. I've already seen him 3 times at random music festivals, but that was before I listened to any of his stuff. Should be a pretty fun set.
I don't get why people seem to be putting Imagine Dragons on the mainstage playing right before the sub-headliner. I can't see them getting a much better placement than a mid-afternoon Bigfoot set.
I based my placement of them on how far up they are on the official list. I would agree with you if it weren't for that. There's a small trend this year where bands that very recently blew up and only have one album get massively heightened billing - Imagine Dragons, Lumineers, and Macklemore to name a few. I kind of get it actually - by putting those bands near the top and giving Mumford & Sons the #1 slot they're going to pull in a lot more "casual" music fans who might normally be intimidated by the idea of a 4-day music festival. I know a couple people who will go to this as their first Sasquatch based on the four aforementioned names alone. Last year festivals binged on EDM/dubstep, and now that trend is fading and they've decided that this route is what will bring in the masses.
In other words, I hear they traded in their banjos and bought turntables, and then they traded in their turntables and bought banjos.
