Add me to the few who will be skipping Iron & Wine for Washed Out instead. This was one of my biggest conflicts. I can live with missing Flying Lotus due to the conflict with the Flaming Lips, but not FlyLo AND Washed Out. I need my downtemp/chill/experimental fix for the weekend.

I've been yearning for this break from reality for a long time now. Especially since I skipped Coachella this year. I need a music festival dose at least once a year to stay sane, and I'm long overdue. Can't wait to lay my eyes on the gorge for the first time!

This will be my first Sasquatch. I would be incredibly stoked if I only got to see these artists the entire weekend.
1) Modest Mouse- Haven't seen them yet. Need I say more?
2) DFA 1979- Probably won't get a chancey chance the chiggity champ of champion chancellors to see them anywhere else. They're also amazing.
3) The Flaming Lips- Yet to witness a full set, missed them at Treasure Island (which I still regret). Soft Bulletin plus more? Yes please.
4) Flying Lotus- I need my dosage of other-worldly, tribal, electronic melodies.
5) Foo Fighters- I don't listen to them that much at all anymore, but they were one of my favorite bands throughout middle/high school. The nostalgia trip will be enough to please me on its own. I'm also very interested in the new album.
6) Rodrigo Y Gabriela- I always love hearing talented musicians rock out on twelve strings. Even more so when they are in pairs. Hopefully a sunset time slot! *crosses fingers*
7) Ratatat- Seen them once before. Blew my little teenage mind into oblivion. Been wanting to catch them again ever since.
8) Deerhunter- Love this band, love the new album. Missed them at Coachella last year. Won't make the same mistake again.
9) Black Mountain- Didn't hear about them until the lineup. Got their latest album shortly after hearing one song.
10) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- Another band I discovered from the lineup. Not much hip-hop on the list, but I really liked what I heard from them.

This year will be my first time attending (if I can buy a ticket in time). I attended Coachella last year and it changed my life. I was counting down the days until this years Coachella. Unfortunately the lineup and organization of the festival didn't do anything for me. Fortunately Sasquatch looks like it will fix all my sorrows from Coachella.
I was stoked on the lineup since the start, and only getting more excited. I can't wait to see the Gorge from Washington (only seen the Oregon side), camp for 4 days, and finally see Modest Mouse, Foo Fighters, Deerhunter, Flying Lotus, and many others I haven't heard of yet.
Sasquatch 2011 FTW! Now just need to buy that ticket...
