Nah, it's not that. I've been introduced to a handful of great bands on the Yeti Stage, but the thing is it's as best I can tell typically NW local acts (which I know nothing about) or pre-buzz buzz bands, or both. I'd love to name some hot, hip new bands from the area who deserve the exposure Sasquatch would bring them, but I don't know any.

It starts and ends with Arcade Fire. Put them on the Main Stage at sunset singing "My Body is a Cage" and my head will either im or ex plode!!
Also: Pixies (Please!!) Iggy Pop Vampire Weekend Pains of Being Pure at Heart Wu-Tang Blackstar (reunion has to happen sometime) Prodigy Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson Libertines (Imagine that for a second!!) Ghostland Observatory The Faint Devo Raveonettes
... and Bob Dylan should close it out with "Tangled Up In Blue". Is that too much to ask?
