Heya. I am trying to create an infographic on festivals in the Pacific Northwest and I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to help me uncover some statistics about Sasquatch. This is what I have at the moment:
I would welcome any data to help fill in the blanks or any corrections that someone might have including additional categories that you feel would be of interest. Especially unsure about capacity. Earlier years would be grand but I could not turn up much on them and though I suspect this information is not available, I would love if the profit margins per year were known publicly. Touch tired at the moment so my apologies if any of this is incoherent. Happy to answer any questions.
Pretty sure your '09, '10 ticket pricing is off, or one of those years had a cheaper 3 day early bird or something. Price going down YOY doesn't look right. Camping was per vehicle in '09 and '10 and I think it was like $80 or so. Not sure about Premiere camping costs for those years, but I think Terrace debuted in 2011 at $420 or something ridiculous.
I attempted to do something similar when I was in grad school a few years ago. I ended up going a different direction with the paper so I dumped the research I had done. At the time I was able to get in touch with someone at house of zaks and they shared some info with me which was really helpful. You may consider doing the same.
I still have my 06 tickets on my cork board, they were 68 per day plus fees, there were 3 days for the first time. NIN, Beck, and Ben Harper headlined.
You may also consider looking at consequence of sound as they recently published an article about the cost to book artists and it had an extensive list of artists and their prices. Just a thought.
Best of luck and I hope you post your findings here when you are done, I am sure it would be very interesting.
