I thought it would be a good idea to make a thread to help people decide which side of their conflict to go to. For example: If anyone is considering Youth Lagoon but does not know how his record will sound live, I can say that he is amazing live and if you are a fan of his albums you should check his show out.
There is seriously somrbody in the r/sasquatch thread bitching about Sigur Ros' time slot.
What exactly was their complaint? Their set time might be the most incredible time and placement of a band I've ever seen at a festival. They have 30 minutes where they are the only artist playing on all of the stages, and the only ones they do go up against are DJs. It couldn't have been more perfect for me.
I really don't understand it but there are a large number of attendees who don't bother to investigate the lineup at all. They'll have bought tickets because Macklemore and Mumford get played on The End all the time and don't spend too much time investigating the lineup beyond that. Seems wasteful to me but those are the people who are complaining about Sigur Ros getting too long of a set time. They haven't listened to them at all and don't understand why they're headlining over bands they know.
