Alright. DFA79 is reforming. I'm in no position to deny Outkast anymore. That lineup may be real after all (probably not though).
I have no idea what that means. The problem with outkast isn't that it's unlikely that they will ever reunite (like it was with DFA), it's that if they did it would be huge news and they wouldn't do it at Sasquatch. Outkast is significantly bigger than ANY name on the Coachella lineup this year. If anything this whole thing makes that list look even more ridiculous because it would mean that Sasquatch's lineup kicks Coachella's ass
I know know pretty much quashed all hope, but since I didn't get to gush...
...if this is the lineup, the fest will sell out the day after it's announced. The billing seems vaguely realistic - Chem Bros. have the stature to headline Sasquatch, but not the brand of music - they couldn't put them up against another EDM act in the tent. So, why not give them three hours from, like 9-midnight, in the tent alongside a headliner like Soundgarden? I can tell you where I'd be. This is a model Coachella has been very successful with, and I know that we're not in socal, but EDM is growing by leaps and bounds everywhere, and Sasquatch's population is more diverse every year as its reputation shines.
And honestly, the undercard isn't that much better than last year's. Take out the headliners (FF, AF, Outkast, Soundgarden) and subs (Lips, Black Keys, Roots, PJ, Death Cab) and the lineup looks pretty realistic to me.
All I'm saying is, 10th anniversary show, Snacks said they have big plans...you just never know.
Have you been to Sasquatch before? The Chemical Brothers would need a tent at least 3 times larger than the one they had last year. I would imagine them drawing a similar sized crowd to last year's Deadmau5 set. I think they definitely got it right by putting the late night EDM artists on the Bigfoot stage.

Travis with Guerrilla Candy here. I wanted to confirm with you all that this lineup is false. The reason I can confirm its falsity is because I created it.
I didn't expect this to be taken so seriously and it wasn't my intent to mess with anyone or get expectations up. I was just bored and thought it would be fun to post a fake lineup on here under the guess the lineup thread since I figured it would be appreciated more on these boards than elsewhere on the web. I logged in under the username Yoshimi because I didn't remember my old username/password. I'm using this username, Guerrillacandy, to be 100 percent legit and also to let you know that this lineup is fake. My apologies if I upset anyone with my guess at the lineup.
I am fbelt sandered several of you thought this was a genuine lineup but sadly it isn't. I was hoping the inclusion of Outkast would be the red flag that gave it away. I have no insider info or insight whatsoever into who is and isn't performing at Sasquatch! this year, although I did make my prediction based off several educated guesses so some of it may be plausible.
Anyway, I'm glad you all enjoyed my conjecture and I'll see you all at the Gorge Memorial Day weekend.
I wasn't sure where to post this on these boards but I figured this would be as god a spot any so here is what may, or may not, be a fairly accurate forecast for Sasquatch! 2011:

Thanks for clearing it up, Travis. Kudos on a smart lineup. I don't think you're breaking any hearts posting a killer fake lineup - it was fun to talk about, and I think most people took it with a grain of salt. Though we sometimes sounded delusional, myself included. Peace!
Wait. I call a bluff. So guerrillacandy guy created a username Yoshimi because he couldn't remember what his old user name was...and then created another user name to tell us this? I smell something fishy.
