Dollars for donuts I'd say High Sierra in Quincy, CA. Great vibe, and so few people you can literally walk right upfront for pretty much any show you please. Add the fact that if you time it exactly right you can snag a campsite that opens up to a stage not more than a stones throw away...and you'll instantly realize this is not your normal festy. I'd say most of the smaller fests are better experiences. I've never been to All Good, but always hear really good things.
Bonnaroo is super crowded, but always big acts and constant entertainment. The dust issue last year was terrible. I wouldn't have gone back this year except PJ drug me back!
The fact that not many people camp at Coach brings them down quite a bit. What's a festival without the camping aspect? Lollapalooza i found a bit lacking too, for the same reason.
Excited to try out Sasquatch this year though! And you're right, the price helps a lot...

i'm going to be a little bias but...SASQUATCH! it's a solid lineup- headliners are better than coachella, theres no jack johnson and it's way cheaper than the other fests if only we could snag sigur ros from bonnoroo, and radiohead from apw it would be the ultimate.

I think it's all relative. It depends on who you love as far as bands go. The Cure is my all time favorite band (even have a tattoo) and REM is my second, so in my eyes this festival is the best. There is going to be things about each festival that make them good and bad. I am super excited about this one!
well sasquatch is thus far the best festival for a few reasons. one that people didn't mention is that the gorge is one of the coolest venues in existence. at coachella, which is flat, your view is crap unless you pack yourself into the front in the ungodly heat. the gorge is a bowl, so your view always rocks. based on my personal preferences, sasquatch>coachella>bonnaroo>APW (even though radiohead is incredible and there are some good smaller acts so far. it's not big enough yet and jack johnson is a weak headliner)
I will biastly say Sasquatch. I have never had as much fun at any concert as I do at Sasquatch every single year. Lineup is really good, venue is the best around, and the environment is very laid back.
