Schoolboy Q was my second favorite hip hop set of 2015 behind RtJ at Coachella, which was one of the most incredible all-around live sets I've seen in my entire life. Q's set was one of the few during the weekend when I looked around and saw every single one of my friends going apeshit around me. Those are special times.
As one of the primary organizers of the Bassnectar glowpocalypae, I promise you won't be able to top it. We ruined glowsticks at the Gorge forever that year, and smuggling massive amounts in just isn't possible anymore. Good luck though! I'm always up for a good glow throw.
I think it's ok to be critical of something you love. At the end of the day, Sasquatch is a business and I'm a customer. I'll still be there, and I'll still have an incredible weekend. I just hope a few things are reworked/restructured to ensure the continuation of a great festival.
-Flooded festival market -Low Canadian dollar -Generic lineup -Unreasonable camping cost -Rising ticket prices
Take your pick. The Gorge can only sell itself to a certain extent. There aren't too many other incentives anymore for someone to choose Sasquatch over all of the other cheaper and better-run festivals with arguably better lineups.
I highly doubt it sells out at this point. More and more passes keep getting added to Stubhub, and they're starting at $235 right now. Great fucking news for me. Not a good sign at all for the festival. The over-saturation of festivals nationwide, generic lineup, unreasonable camping cost, and weak Canadian dollar (paired with Squamish and Pemberton giving Canadians a similar and much cheaper option) all seem to be hitting Sasquatch particularly hard this year. I have a big feeling that a lot of the college kids from Ellensburg would be more inclined to attend Paradiso over Sasquatch as well.
