Its not that I am extremely disappointed that there aren't any big "radio" stars in the lineup but I think that Sasquatch deserves some big names that have been puting out great music for a long time. It has been that way over the past few years with bands like Beastie Boys, The Cure, Beck...etc. I just don't see it this year. Don't get me wrong, I love Ben Harper and NIN and thought they were both awesome in '06... As for the other bands I am so glad to hear that people are excited!
I have to agree with most other comments on this forum. The lineup is good, but not great, at least for headliners. I have been to Sasquatch for the past three years and none of these have me jumping for joy, as they have in the past. Especially given that both NIN and Ben Harper were there in '06 (but with much anticipated Flaming Lips and Beck)...this time around, bleh. I do look forward to seeing KoL but am very disappointed that some of the other rumors did not pan out i.e. Band of Horses, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Gomez and especially the unlikely rumor of Tool and Pearl Jam...these would have made Sasquatch '09 another epic year. The second tier lineup seems pretty good but I'm not familiar with all bands. Who has some advice on who I cannot miss this year?
