Rusty sorry to hear your person didn't/won't get your CD (I don't remember you who got right now without looking it up) but your mix looks incredible. You did a fantastic job on all the art too! When I get home I might try to make the playlist so it will still get listened to at least.
Rusty! Meeting you and your girlfriend was definitely a highlight of my weekend (even if I did get my Thursday white girl wasted blackout in the middle of talking to her). So sorry I didn't come by your camp, but I did see the Rusty flag your neighbours had and started every morning by saying we should go visit.
Such a fantastic fucking weekend - best Coachella so far, that's for sure. Beck's set was a highlight, best I've seen of him - cried my eyes out at parts and danced like a manic at others. Top three sets were Pet Shop Boys (was worried I hyped them for myself but they surpassed my expectations), Arcade Fire (after waiting this long to finally see them, they fully delivered) and Caravan Palace (no idea who they were and so so happy other Megan suggested seeing them, great dance party). Still haven't fully decompressed from the weekend but already know I can't wait to do it again with you all next year. And we still have the rest of festival season to go for this year!
Hotels are expensive in Whistler in general, then add in a high occupancy weekend like this fest and prices will only go up. I'd say go for the camping; I'm sure you will meet plenty of people there and you could even make some friends here on the board beforehand so you won't be totally solo at the fest if you're worried about that. Plus, half the reason to go to a music fest is the camping, you don't want to miss out on that.
His shows are always a blast! One of my favourites was when he played Squamish fest a few years ago, just the size of it all made for some awesome, fun energy. I'm sure Pemberton will end up being pretty similar.
I said I wouldn't watch any of the streams this weekend 'cause I didn't want to spoil anything for myself, but I've been reading a bit of the thread on the Coachella forums about the streams and hot damn is it ever getting me pumped! Especially for the Pet Shop Boys who were already my top must-see for the weekend and now even moreso! Just three more days 'til I leave!! Exclamation points!!!
I just put in my time off request from work for Sasquatch and What the Festival. I already purchased my WTF ticket, so hopefully that works out, but does anybody still have a Sasquatch ticket they're trying to get rid of? Assuming I get the time off, I'll happily pay you the full cost (face+shipping) for it just so you don't have to worry about selling it elsewhere. Let me know!
I think Davers still has that extra May ticket but you'll have to check with him when he's surfaced from Coachella.
I got a couple passes, but by the time I selected how many advanced I wanted (at about 10:00:12am) they were already "pending" so I just switched to regular right away. I didn't want to deal with the stress of refreshing for 20 minutes just to save $20 and I had to leave for a doctor's appointment anyway.
I think the mix professor sent me took a little over 2 weeks to get up here, so I wouldn't worry just yet.
And it was with every second of waiting, I'm sure.
It was! I've only had a chance to listen to it 1 and a half times but so far loving it, especially the Gil Scott-Heron track (always been a big fan of him) and the Robin Thicke track which surprised me.
Count me in! And I'm gonna try to snag a few extras in the sale for those who can't get their tix this Friday.
I'm completely expecting the fest to be a total clusterfuck since they couldn't even manage their line up announcement. Figure though, go in with low expectations and it can only get better from there, right?
