Speaking of that jaggedy wood fence, my friend works for a company that designs the red bull booth and takes the pictures and all that. Apparently at the part after you make it back up the hill, you don't have to cross the road anymore, or wait for cars to go by. They dug a tunnel that goes under the road that you walk on.
Pointless information! I'm too excited for Sasquatch to not blabber on about things.
Haha that's awesome, I may have to skip out on the premier shuttle one of the mornings just to check that out.
Now that's why I'm happy I bought a premier pass and have access to a shuttle so I can get back to the campground faster. Gonna miss all of Youngblood Hawke though since Primus is on Sunday night from midnight to 1:30. It'll be a pretty cool last party on Monday night with Twin Shadow. This is awesome.
The Primus poster is the one I'm looking forward to most. Sometimes if posters aren't displayed on sasquatchfestival.com you can google for them and I've found a few that way over the years, but it turns up nothing in this case.
I'm heading out hopefully by 7pm tomorrow and planning on not checking this board after tonight until I'm at the festival, because in past years it was full of people posting about leaving up to 12 hours before I was able to go, and I just sat around all day feeling like I was the only person that hadn't left yet. Totally ridiculous I know.
Snacks is a really cool guy, he could just ignore all of us like a lot of people in his position would do, but he chooses to be somewhat involved with the festival-goers and has replied to me every time I tweeted him.
Hopefully they don't decide to be anal about cameras this year. I have a zoom lens camera that I've brought in every day of the festival since 2010 and have never been hassled about it yet. Pretty sure that would kill my mood for a little bit if they refused to let me in with it this time.
Something tells me there's more to this story that was conveniently not included. This will be my 6th year and the only people I've ever seen get arrested were asking for it, i.e. trying to sneak onto festival grounds, people that were belligerently drunk inside the venue, starting fights, etc.
Vampire Weekend is billed 5th on the lineup whereas the Lumineers are 8th, so apparently the festival organizers think VW has the larger draw. I'm not sure if any Bigfoot headliner has ever been billed higher than all of the Sasquatch stage sub-headliners. The only reason I can think of as to why they were put on Bigfoot is because they have a 90 minute slot there instead of the Sasquatch sub-head slot which is 75, and since they're headlining they can play beyond their timeslot if they choose to.
Word from Snacks about Vampire Weekend is "they had to switch dates last minute." Makes sense. I'm guessing they were originally scheduled to sub-headline Monday and asked to switch since they have a show in Paris on the 29th. That's probably the only reason the Lumineers have a sub-head slot.
