you guys have your own quirks, I have mine. There are bands (Radiohead/Pearl Jam in particular) that Sasquatch cannot afford and it bothers me that you guys keep trying to tell yourselves that either 1. they can or 2. we don't know. We do know and you guys are in denial if you think otherwise.
Fine. Could you please fill out the list of bands that definitely will not appear at Sasquatch?
I do not expect to see any of these artists at Sasquatch (culled almost exclusively from the list of coachella, bonnaroo, and Lolla headliners)
jay z, coldplay, kings of leon, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Prince, Green Day, Tool, RHCP, Roger Waters, Jack Johnson, Muse, Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Bruce Springsteen, Metalica, Tom Petty, Soundgarden
The logic here is that all of these artists don't just play amphitheaters and arenas, they sell them out and have fervent fanbases. Beck plays amphitheaters but he does not even come close to selling them out. The cure play amphitheaters but the last time they came through it was with their own Sasquatch like festival (curiosa) and not just by themselves.
Soundgarden is a big to an extent because they haven't played any real shows but between 1. the 1 million dollar number I've heard thrown around (seems awfully excessive) and 2. the hometown factor, I think they're significantly out of our price range.
While the gorge is cool and a selling point, nearly all of these artist could just play on their own there if they felt like it (many of them do KOL, DMB, Tom Petty, Kings, Coldplay, etc.)
KoL already played jack weed! They headlined way before any of the others started this trend. I guess everyone should blame Sasquatch for this abomination!
I was tempted to put in something about how popularity changes and so do the costs of bands but I thought everyone would understand that...in 05 Kanye, Arcade Fire, wilco, and the pixies all played on the same day. It's not like that is going to happen again...
Moon Safari is an amazing record. It's too bad love 2 was so disappointing
