I just wish Flying Lotus was one of those Friday additions. I would forgive all of the "chillwave" instagram-filter-inspired electronic shit on this lineup if Snacks just gave me Flylo Layer 3... and Bjork...
I was SO sure that Flying Lotus would be on the lineup. Big disappointment, but holding out hope.
The headliners are risky, but with a lot of potential. Modest Mouse and Kendrick have a history of unpreparedness. I've seen MM three times (twice at Sasquatch), and the 2011 headlining set was the only one worth mentioning. Completely made up for the prior two shitshows, though. Have heard the stories about Kendrick in this thread. Anyone know if Robert Plant has a lot of variance show-to-show?
I mention this because the Gorge tends to bring out the best in performers, and if the headliners live up to their billing I don't see too many issues with the lineup.
Excited for Spoon. Haven't seen them in years, the new album's great, and the Julysquatch that never was got me all wound up.
Kendrick, Plant, Modest Mouse, Decemberists, Tame Impala, Spoon, St. Vincent, James Blake, Hot Chip, SBTRKT, War on Drugs, Little Dragon, Gogol Bordello, Jose Gonzalez, Chromeo, Father John Misty, RTJ, Future Islands, Sharon Van Etten, Perfume Genius, Sylvan Esso, San Fermin, Bishop Nehru, Will Butler, Ex Hex - - - 25 sets I'm interested in right off the bat, with more to be announced, and more to be discovered. You can only see about 35 sets the whole weekend.
It's a great lineup, but the only thing that justifies the incredibly higher price is that people are willing to pay that much.

I've noticed a lot of Sasquatch rookies asking for a list of essentials, both on this board and elsewhere. So here's my packing list (refined since 2008), along with notes on some items. There is no more room left on the page so if you have any additions they had better be good.
I can't believe that song has been out for almost 40 years and I never listened to it before. I'm beginning to question every decision I've ever made. I seriously feel like I've somehow failed at life.
Ditto, but I also blame my parents. They've probably failed to introduce me to several other genre-defining artists.

With the amount of boats I have seen being towed behind lifted douche mobiles I don't see this as being problem.
Douche mobiles pulling douche canoes.
I think that's how all the campground partiers get in sans wristbands. While waiting in the "stockyard" for our campsite I saw literally 9 people crawl out of a ski boat and scatter in every direction. I guess they lost their bearings under the tarp.
