Sled Island announced some of their schedule and individual show tickets. I'm gonna try to do:
Wednesday: Son Lux & Hundred Waters at Central United Church followed by Ben Frost & Loscil at Commonwealth. Thursday: Godspeed at Central United Church followed by Lightning Bolt at #1 Legion. Friday: Godspeed at Central United Church followed by Iceage at Dickens. Saturday: Television, Drive Like Jehu, Viet Cong, King Tuff, Ex Hex & Hypnotic Brass Ensemble at Olympic Plaza.
They claim that they still need to announce two headliners, and I assume these two will be playing Olympic Plaza on Friday. Hopefully there's more than one appearance by Obnox. Looking like he'll be up against Lightning Bolt.
EDIT: Swervedriver are very possibly playing Olympic Plaza on Friday as well
EDIT 2: East Village Block Party will probably be back on the Thursday as well. Last year they had Cashmere Cat, Jacques Greene, and Stwo so if it's a similar calibre of performers this year, I'll be going again.

I'm really liking how Sled Island is shaping up this year. I'm sure there will be conflicts (half the good stuff always seems to be on Wednesday) but I for sure want to try to see both GYBE shows, Television (probably playing Olympic Plaza?), Lightning Bolt, Drive Like Jehu, Swervedriver, Ben Frost, and Iceage. There's tons of other stuff that looks great if some of these don't work out though. Since both GYBE shows are at Central United Church, they should be a little earlier in the night. Last year I saw OPN there and it was over by like 9:45 if I remember correctly.
Action Bronson - Mr. Wonderful Black Atlass - Jade Death Grips - Jenny Death Earl Sweatshirt - I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside Lightning Bolt - Fantasy Empire Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly My Morning Jacket - The Waterfall
After some more time with it, I'm pretty satisfied with the lineup. I was pretty much going already going anyways, so it's a bonus that there's stuff I want to see. Here's the stuff that I am at least considering checking out:
Kendrick J.Cole Weezer Passion Pit Missy Elliott Weezer String Cheese Incident Passion Pit The Decemberists The War on Drugs Portugal. The Man PartyNextDoor RL Grime Duke Dumont Earl Sweatshirt Run the Jewels Courtney Barnett Cut Copy DJ Set Tobias Jesso Jr. Real Estate Flatbush Zombies Yung Lean Ryan Hemsworth BADBADNOTGOOD What So Not Giraff-age DJ Dodger Stadium Jack U A$AP Ferg Tycho Hundred Waters

but yeah a very important family event that I had previously committed to without knowing the date happened to materialize on Sasquatch weekend. I really didn't think that it would be that weekend but I had no control over it
