Who knows why, but none of my friends want to go to Sasquatch I'm thinking of going on my own, but not as much fun obviously. Is anyone going solo? Would be nice to have some people to hang out with at the campsite. I'm 40 but a YOUNG 40! coming down from Vancouver BC.
If you end up going solo, just chat up your neighbours! My friend and I went last year for the first time and we're both a little shy in new situations, but our neighbours promptly invited us to drink, we discussed music and the rest is friendship history. There's friendly people (and lots of fellow Canadians) at every turn!
Going solo is great. You get to see the bands you want when you want.
I couldn't agree more. I lost count of how many times in my five years of attending Sasquatch that one of my friends has made me miss something I really wanted to see. Just last year I finally ended up not caring if I had someone with me, and went off on my own more. They still made me miss about half of Beck though, since they weren't into it and wanted to go back to the campground to pack up and leave ahead of the crowds.

Going solo is great, I went "semi-solo". Last year was my first year as well and I used this forum, rideshare, and facebook, to connect with people that needed a ride. Long story short, I made a friend in my own town that needed a ride that I would have never known otherwise, picked up two lovely girls from LA at the airport and we were camping buddies the whole time. Occasionally meeting each other at the different shows, and getting to do some pretty awesome stuff. Still good friends fer sher.
You never know who you're going to meet, or really connect with. It's the power of the squatch. There's nearly 30,000 potential friends to meet. I also loved that any time at any moment I could do whatever the fuck I wanted to do, and not worry if I had to appease my friends and miss someone I really wanted to see. I even had a couple friends I've known for a long time that we stumbled into each other at general camping.... with no way to contact/connect with them, I think that is pretty fucking incredible.
