Hey! This will be my first Sasquatch and I am coming from Victoria, BC Canada!
I just had a few questions regarding parking and camping (doesn't everybody?) I read through all the posts on here and didn't really get an answer to this so here goes..
I bought a premier camping pass, which is good 4 3 days. I also bough a premier parking pass, but it just says "GOOD FOR THIS DAY ONLY" and then shows the date of Monday, May 31st on it.
So like, I've been told that you park at your camp site.. is that true? and if it is, do I just leave my car and tent(s) all in the same spot all weekend? or will I have to move it, or will I have to park somewhere else away from where I camp? I'm not sure why it just says Monday only on the parking pass.. I spent like $30 on it. I hope I don't have to buy one for every day? There was never an option for this when I purchased it.
Also, when the concert is over for a night, and it's like, 1am or whatever, am I able to drive to a store near by and come back to my camp site? Or does no re-entry apply for the entire weekend?
Thanks in advance, so stoked this is my first massive festival experience! I go to Soundwave every year but it's very laid back compared to this.
First of all, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for this thread! I'm a DJ/promoter of Electronic (House, Breaks, Electro etc) and don't listen to bands much.. but I checked out all the artists I didn't know that are in everyone's top 10 lists and now I have an idea of what I want to listen to at the festival. That said, here's my personal list -
1. Massive Attack! 2. Simian Mobile Disco - WATCH THIS VIDEO OF THEM LIVE! I've always wanted to see them perform after seeing this (you might have to sign up.. do it, that site has lots of awesome vids) - Simian Mobile Disco live 3. Public Enemy 4. Z-Trip (This guy puts on a unique show every time and personalizes it to the crowd he's playing for.. one of the best DJs in the world!) 5. A-Trak ('cause I know he'll play music you can dance to!) 6. Booka Shade 7. Kid Cudi 8. MGMT 9. Passion Pit 10. Deadmau5 (i'm kind of bored of his live sets since it's all the same every time, just changes the songs around.. and doesn't ever play anything unreleased.. but still, i'm sure he'll be worth seeing on a massive stage)
Most of those aren't bands as you can see, but like I said earlier you guys opened my eyes to some really good bands so here are the top 10 acts I want to see that I've never really known about before now (with the exception of 1 or 2 of their hit songs) -
1. Mike Snow 2. Brother Ali 3. Passion Pit 4. Ok Go 5. Tegan & Sara 6. Mumford & Sons (from the Youtube vid on the front page) 7. The Very Best (African music FTW!) 8. Phantogram 9. Dam-Funk 10. Shabazz Palaces (seems like this, Public Enemy and Brother Ali are the only hip hop goin on?)
and some other notable mentions are Portugal the Man, Patrick Watson and Yacht
