I feel like at this point there's no way the lineup won't disappoint. They're like the festival equivalent of a deadbeat. "Give us a month...just one more month...ten days, i swear...just gimme til the end of the day, i'm good for it..."
Are you guys kidding? Tom Cochrane WITH Red Rider??! That's just too much to handle.
Jk. I'm still wrapping my head around the idea of a band calling themselves Monster Truck and achieving any sort of success. That lineup's weird in that its target demographic seems to be tweens and fifty-somethings.
Any word about that Pemberton sneak peek? If such a thing truly exists...
Preeeeetty fuckin' crazy. I offer my sincere condolences to those affected by the tragedy... really though, that's a lot of planning, excitement and money down the drain. Sales must have been incredibly low for them to to nuke it all to dust.
So are we taking the addition of a Fourth Day to Maysquatch Sasquatch is a given? The high price for three days seemed somewhat reasonable with two weekends, but now it's just a very expensive festival - not that any of them are particularly cheap...
If it does indeed happen, do you think they'd try to piece it together with refugees from the July shipwreck or start from scratch? Mix of both?
I really doubt Pemberton will be cancelled. Ignoring the fact they already sold a bunch of presale tickets, there was a news story the other week about them hiring horse-owning locals for security (which is...yeah.) It's just crazy to me they'd be unable to fill a couple days - I mean, aren't the Tragically Hip perpetually on hand to fill out any Canadian festivals?
The stronger likelihood in my eyes is just a rather underwhelming lineup. Which would be hilarious, if both B.C. festivals shit the bed, but also sad. Squam does look pretty awful broken into three days...ahhhhh what might've been.
