if for some reason no doubt headlines, no worries, i'll just go chill at the dance tent or another stage. it's pretty much 99% certain that the "reunion band" rumored is jane's addiction, so hopefully we don't have to worry about no doubt taking a headlining spot.
i think the rumor was squashed because the only day they would be able to play at sasquatch was the day before they are to be in calgary. i couldn't see them going all the way out to the gorge and then catching a plane in the middle of the night in order to make it up to canada in time. also they're doing a seattle show in april i think, so it's probably like a 0.1% chance they'd be at sasquatch.
last year it rained like clockwork at the end of each day which was pretty refreshing after spending 12 hours out in the sun. definitely bring your own food/drinks since the prices will surely go up again this year. i couldn't help but laugh at the schmucks that paid $12 for tallboy beers last time, they obviously had more money than common sense.
is that columnist an absolute moron? why does he think death cab would be there again this year, and not only be there but HEADLINE?! at least they save themselves with the rest of the predictions which are pretty reasonable.
kings of leon are the only possible headliner rumored so far, but as others have said, they're not as big in america as they are in the UK. unless sasquatch bookers are having a hard time getting big name bands, i don't expect to see KOL as a headliner. perhaps the headliners are better hidden this year because it'll be totally mind blowing when we find out who they are ;D
i hope that's completely false, and it very likely is. the killers play a seattle show in april already. coldplay are alright but i'd rather someone else headline. snow patrol would be a great addition as a sub-headliner, and it's not too far fetched to think they might show up (but are they the type to play festivals?)
Sasquatch will be fine, guaranteed. A great line-up would only be a bonus, even if its mediocre the gorge itself is a major selling point. oh and our line-up pretty much has to be better than coachella, at least the headliners.
it was better than coachella last year. paul mccartney, the killers and the cure isn't a hard group of headliners to beat.
that pretty much confirms no doubt won't be appearing at sasquatch. the 25th is more than likely a day off for them, i couldn't see them playing way out at the gorge late monday night and then being in calgary the next day. i wouldn't have minded seeing them, but i'd much rather see someone else headline each night. they don't really come across as a sasquatch friendly band to me, either.
yeah it wouldn't make any sense for the flaming lips to be there 2 years in a row, since they'd be taking up a headlining slot again. i'd love to see them at a future festival though, they were great last year.
