I can't get into Father John Misty albums either and I don't even try to anymore. That being said, he entertained the shit out of me at first city fest in spite of my lack of taste in his music. He's just a really good show man.
I don't really think either of those things mean going against the grain and I don't think not wanting to see Robert Plant is an unpopular opinion as roughly half the people here seem to agree with you.
We'll just leave it at that, agree to disagree or whatever.
Why the quest to dismantle and invalidate my comment? Relax man, we're all just squatchers. Plus, its Friday!
The more you try to defend your confusing comment, the more it appears you didn't know Led Zeppelin was British.

I like Mutt's dog. Assuming your avatar is your actual dog, he is adorable and I want to snuggle him. I don't think I got to meet you last year Mutt but I'm going to win tickets and see you there this year!
I already know one of the adds. So far, it's nothing that will be a game-changer for anyone.
Are you still in communication with the man? I feel like he has to see some of these threads, curious to see if he acknowledges the collective disappointment at all or comments on the fact that you're out this year.

I'm really not convinced we're going to get a big add but I hope you guys are right. As much as I want to hold on to a shred of hope for the late Bjork add, I believe Snacks already asked her a long time ago and she couldn't/wouldn't do it. She has been saying this album is meant to be played in a concert hall. So far the only Fest she's playing is Gov Ball and that's probably an exception due to her residency in NYC.
However! MMJ would please a lot of us. It'd be tough bc they're at Boston Calling on Saturday but it can be done, I just don't think Snacks will be able to throw enough money at them to make the travel hassle worth it. Sound checks are also super early in the AM for headliners and the time zone works against us.
And on the topic of Little Dragon, I've never listened them before but I stumbled into their 2012 set in a corn chip fueled state and it was one of my favorite sets of the weekend. Don't know why I still haven't listened to them more. What's a good album to start with?
If you liked what you heard in 2012 go with Ritual Union.
But the newest, Nabuma Rubberband, is fantastic as well, one of my very favorites from last year.

Speaking of super talented female vocalists, there's tons of em on the lineup this year. I believe there was some criticism about the lack of female artists at Sasquatch's before the lineup came out, so I was happy to see so many on there but then again they dropped the ball on the alpha female. Ugh, it still hurts.
