Goes without saying at this point but this festival has a really strong lineup. There's an extra 5-6 bands I could make a case for swapping into the top 10.

Somehow that's always how it is every year for me. I keep up to date with music pretty well and I see plenty of shows. The Sasquatch lineup is always chock full of people who I wish I'd been able to see but haven't gotten to see yet. It's uncanny.
No kidding. Prior to settling down, getting married and having a kid, I went to 3-4 shows a month in Seattle basically seeing anyone that I liked even just a little bit. These days I go to maybe that many shows per year, and Sasquatch has a great way of knocking out a lot of the bands on my list that I would have wanted to see at their own headlining sets.
10. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 9. Preservation Hall Jazz Band 8. The Tallest Man On Earth 7. Dirty Projectors 6. Divine Fits 5. Built to Spill 4. Vampire Weekend 3. Elvis Costello & the Imposters 2. The Postal Service 1. Andrew Bird
I can honestly say that I've listened to CHVRCHES far more than any other band in the past couple weeks. I'm not tired of their songs even after the 20th listen. Hopefully the lead singer will keep her nerves under control, she looks pretty spooked in all of the live videos of them I've watched. They kinda blew up out of nowhere and are all of a sudden playing to thousands of people so I'd imagine that's pretty mind blowing.
