Further research indicates that Chance the Rapper, Randy Newman and Justice were added like a month after the line up came out. I'm sure there will be a couple additions at some point, but I wouldn't expect anything major (even though I would be thrilled if they added someone to poop J. Cole from the headliner spot).
If last year is any indication you should be able to get cheaper tickets off Craigslist. Mine came to $353 total in presale. Hell it wouldn't surprise me if there are some cheaper tickets popping up in the next couple weeks because people didn't like the lineup.
That being said I do not understand the ticket buying public so I guess there is a chance this could sell out, though I doubt it will be very fast.
Also it's great to keep extra smuggled booze in there in case someone leaves a mickey of vodka on top of your bag and then security sees it and searches all your bags and takes all your smuggled booze. Not that that happened to me or anything.
The 2014 one was annoying as hell with that huge clip. Plus I couldn't keep it on anyway because the chip would have interfered with the 5 other festivals I went to after Sasquatch last year.
Do you think the chip will interfere if this year's wristband has the same kind of thing? I could just put it on my left wrist because fuck the rules
My only actual experience with them interfering was at Coachella weekend 2 when I still had my weekend 1 wristband on. It didn't work so I had to cut the chip off the weekend 1 wristband. After that I just assumed they would all interfere with each other so I took off sasquatch 2014 and cut the chips off all the other ones.
I feel for you there. Lana Del Ray flower girls mushing their way through during Neutral Milk Hotel at Coachella almost ruined that set for me. I found if you just asked them to wait behind you and you'd be gone at the end of the set they mostly listened. Or just yell GENOCIDE at the ones wearing headdresses because that's always entertaining.
Sasquatch and pretty much most other major festivals have done similar things. Jamie Johnson into Childish Gambino being one off the top of my head, which is pretty much the same thing with countryish / rap back to back. It's a music festival. There are all different kinds of music on all the stages. The great thing about music festivals is you aren't forced to stay at one stage the whole time.
You gotta make up your mind Goldbeard. You shit all over artists that get popular after one album saying they don't deserve the popularity then you shit all over Ryan Adams who might have more albums than anyone else on the line up (I'm not going to bother checking). I don't really like his music either but he has earned his spot on the line up and your opinion of him doesn't change that.
I just see the EDM dude being Calvin Harris and that blows. Pretty Lights and Skrillex are probably out since they are playing Shambles. I don't think there's a Santa Clause or anything but I doubt many acts that aren't local will play Pemberton, tour for a couple weeks then come back to the same area for another festival.
I'm hoping they don't go for an EDM headliner, but they'll certainly have some big overpriced DJ to draw the kids. It has to be any day now though. I don't know who started these twitter rumours about Phish but they did just announce a tour that lines up perfectly. If that was the delay then I'm expecting it really soon, but there could also be something on the Glasto lineup that is holding things up.
