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.

I felt bad for sitting on a ticket to the line-up party but I don't feel bad anymore. I was legitimately concerned about being so sad in public if Bjorky wasn't on there, think I made the right call to watch from the comforts of home. BENAROYA PLEEEEASE!!!
I am stoked about these though: Little Dragon Modest Mouse St. Vincent Robert Plant Kendrick Lamar The War On Drugs James Blake Doug Benson Father John Misty Jenny Lewis
And there's a handful I'm curious about. Here's to hoping it's a grower, not a show-er.
