Haha Pooch sold out >50000 tickets at stupid prices. Him alone would sell out Pemberton in minutes.
I don't know that him alone would sell out in minutes a 3 day pass only camping festival... Most of the people that would want to see him aren't going to be interested in the whole festival aspect. It would still sell out though. Doesn't matter anyway 'cause they didn't get him.
That Block Party thing looks decent except that it's on a Sunday. Rock the Shores on the other hand looks absolutely terrible! I know there are a lot of festivals these days making for slim pickings for bookings but they really managed to scrape the bottom of the barrel with that line up.
I'm pretty sure a cover band wouldn't headline Glastonbury. There's also a band from Victoria called The Special Guests. I don't think it's them either.
Joke, head, you know how it goes. (Also, maybe I should have clicked on the link you posted...)
Anyway, the rumour for "special guests" seems to be Metallica right now. I'd be much happier with that over Bowie since I'm not going this year and would be totally gutted to have missed seeing him at Glasto by a year.
Thanks for the concern guys, but Chaos will be ok. She has an hematoma in her ear, so basically a blood vessel popped and the thin flap of her ear swelled up like a balloon filled with blood. Nothing life threatening, just fucking expensive to fix. I guess this is love though, when you don't even give a second thought to dropping $600+ to pop a bloody ear balloon because it's just the thing to do.
It is kinda hard to tell who the headliners are but I think it's Arcade Fire, Kasabian (who are very big in the UK) and Jack White. Pretty sure "special guests" are an unnamed big act not the band in that link. But the line up posted is definitely only about half of what will be playing when all is said and done, there's still quite a bit more to go (albeit mostly all smaller acts).
It's heartbreaking knowing that it's highly unlikely I'll be able to attend Glastonbury, Rokslide, and Primavera in the next 10 years..
Pick one and make it a goal, it's surprisingly easier to do than you think.
And if I win the lotto this week, I'll totally take all you guys to Glastonbury to make up for our loss of Julysquatch. That's a great start to the line up! I wonder if "special guests" with Arcade Fire is David Bowie?

Finally got my medical coverage back today after they had decided I was dead last year and cut me off. Turns out that I'm not dying from the mysterious chest pain that's been giving me terrible panic attacks so yay? Also, it is remarkably easy to fake your own death in this country.
Wow, we really are the same person-- I had no coverage for almost a year when I was in university 'cause they accidentally listed me as dead when we outsourced all the MSP data input to an American company. Took my mom about 3 months to get it straightened out on my behalf because they wouldn't talk to me since I was considered dead.
I'm feeling the sadsquatch-shaped gap in my musical summer pretty hard right now and so am trying to find stuff to fill it up with. So far my list of potentials is looking like this:
What The Festival: June 19-22 (they've said the lineup will be out "soon" on Mar. 25) Tall Tree Festival (local music fest, apparently really fun): June 27-29 talltreemusicfestival.com/2014/lineup/ Pemberton: July 18-20 (lineup on Apr.7) CHBP: July 25-27 (lineup out "soon" on Mar. 27) Music Fest NW: Aug 16-17
and my fer-sures:
Bumbershoot: Aug 30-Sept 1 (lineup on May 8) Rifflandia: Sept 11-14
With Music Fest's change to two days I think that's probably my most likely, but hey, I have these vacation days to play with now and who says I only have to do one?! Who's planning on doing what? What fun shit am I missing on this list?
I'm pretty sure I'll be doing Rifflandia this year (I mean, I've already called your couch, weenie!), and with Julysquatch all gone I'm now on the fence for either Pemberton (definitely line-up dependant decision) or Bumbershoot. That Tall Tree Fest looks interesting and has a good price.

Pretty unlikely. Pemberton is a ~2.5 hour drive to the major airport in Vancouver with no traffic. There will be lots of traffic.
I'm sure there are small or private airstrips nearby that could be used if the promoters flew them in on a private plane but that would require lots of extra money so it's probably still highly unlikely.
