I really want to go to Sasquatch, but I live in Arizona, and I don't know if my car can make it all the way there. Coachella is a lot closer but it's not as laid back as Sasquatch and that's what I want. So, is there anyone with any kind of advice, or someone to help me with my Coachella vs. Sasquatch! debate so I can make my mind up?
i'm sure you could probably find a good price for a flight from arizona to seattle (probably much cheaper than all the gas to get from AZ to WA), then check this board when time gets closer and there's a lot of people on here that carpool form seattle to the gorge. that's what i've done the past two years (coming from south carolina)

Sasquatch: Fewer people, better setting, not the fucking desert, not crawling with shitty celebrities and TMZ material, NOT THE GOD DAMN DESERT, most beautiful venue you'll see outside of Red Rocks, me
Don't let them fool you. The Gorge is technically in a desert. Temps have been in the upper 90's, maybe even 100, during the festival in the past. That being said, it is still a far cry from southern California and I MUCH prefer what we have going on in eastern Washington. I've never been to Coachella so I can't do a proper comparison, but enough friends have told me about it that I dolphinately feel Sasquatch >> Coachella.
Last year tickets went on sale super early in November, way before the lineup was announced. That's when I, and I assume a lot of other die hards on this message board, bought tickets. They then went off sale again until after the lineup was announced in late February. The price was the same in November as it was in February, but a week before the festival it jumped up by $10 a day. I hope they do the same pre-sale again next month!

Sasquatch is as much a "gorge" experience as it is the festival experience for me. I have to make at least one pilgrimage out there each year so I really don't care how much I like or dislike the lineup. Everyone who bitched about this year's lineup missed out of one of the most exciting weekends ever. The performances topped '09 by a longshot (IIIIIIIIMMMMMMOOOOOOO)
