from what i've read, wildhorse has much cleaner facilities and they shut people up at midnight for those of us (myself included) that enjoy a good night's sleep. don't get me wrong i love the sasquatch afterparties, but it was a little over the top when people were still making tons of noise until 5am every morning last year in the general campground. the biggest deal for me is the price, it's $90 total for friday, saturday, sunday and monday nights, with no extra fees. if on the other hand you go for a premium site at the gorge campground, it's $160 BEFORE ticketmaster applies their convenience charges. so you're going to be saving at least $80 at wildhorse for a comparable (but better) campsite.
i'm not sure how accurate this is, but apparently Sun Kil Moon will be headlining the Wookie stage which would provide an alternative to KOL. i don't think the timeslots for each band have been made public yet, but SKM is the last band listed on the official website for saturday at that stage.
Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man.
i didnt see them last year and i have not seen them live but i heard that they are good live besides the sasquatch performance
i enjoy their albums, but they really disappointed me with their live performance last year. i saw about 70 bands (some repeats) in '08 and mars volta were the worst by far. high five on the lebowski reference ;D
needless to say that lineup would be 100x better than what we got. could sasquatch even afford all of those bands, though? probably not. and christ mars volta were so terrible last year, i don't know how they could be on anyone's dream lineup if you saw them.
hopefully any additions won't be as bad as Mars Volta were last year. i like their music but they're absolutely god awful live. i don't think i've ever seen so many people walking away at once, it was just a bunch of loud, annoying noise.
I am not totally bumbed by the line-up, but I just pray that there will be someone else there. I mean come on.... I was excited for N.I.N., but then I realized they werent a headliner. that means they will get like half the set of janes addiction right? Maybe the shins or MGMT or at least someone else should be there. It just seems like not that good of a lineup to me. Ben harper will be good.
from what i've been hearing, NIN and Jane's Addiction will be co-headlining so NIN should get an hour and a half timeslot. i think it would be very disappointing if they didn't get to do a full set.
the lineup is kind of a let down compared to last year (especially KOL and ben harper headlining) but i'll still be going because the sub-headliners are pretty solid and the overall gorge experience is hard to beat.
KOL headlining is disappointing, as is ben harper. i'll probably skip both of them. jane's addiction should be fun though. also very disappointed that beirut isn't coming back, and no band of horses. MGMT would have been an excellent addition to the dance tent. oh well, i'm sure we'll all still have a good time.
i'm sad to see no beirut, no band of horses and no MGMT. i'm hoping that they're holding back the actual saturday headliner because KOL aren't headliner material to me. if they do infact headline, i'll either go to the dance tent or back to the campground early.
does that seem like an incomplete lineup to anyone else? it only seems like enough bands for 2 stages. maybe they're giving each band more time this year or they're condensing to 2 stages instead of 3.
