As I do adore some of the new music out these days I think a sub-Seattle based festival should do a 90's themed Sasquatch. I am not from Washington, but a majority of the music I cherish came from Seattle. So Santa please bring me: Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Death Cab for Cutie, Foo Fighters, Rage against the Machine, Tool, A perfect circle, Hum, Ani Difranco, NIN, Daft Punk, Paul Oakenfold, Smashing Pumpkins (with a friendly Billy Corgan) and in the stocking: the silversun pickups, Florence + the Machine, Sam Westphalen, mew, sigur ros-truly amazing at Sasquatch 2013, faithless, and Regina Spektor. oh wait... since this is a dream add Annie Lennox to that mix. Got a little out of hand but damn this would be awesome. It would make for a great older crowd this year!
If we can't get Sleater-Kinney, maybe we can still get L7. Highly doubtful though, considering that Sasquatch's lineup is most likely pretty close to fully booked at this point and L7 is just starting to consider a reunion tour, but one can hope.

At least it makes it less likely that Sasquatch will sell out until the Pemberton lineup is announced. I think a lot of people will hold off on committing to one or the other until they know both lineups.
Pemberton is officially back from July 16-19. It will be interesting to see how much competition between the two there is. Maybe not as much because Sasquatch is back to one weekend?
More likely a bit of competition for attendees. After the strength of last year's Pemby lineup, I could potentially see some of our Canadian brethren forgoing Sasquatch in favor of Pemberton. Not everyone has the funds to be able to pull off both.
Indeed he is, and that would be fucking awesome if he played. Sadly though, it appears he is playing everywhere but Sasquatch. He is booked every day except Monday, and the only way he'll play then is if he goes from Calgary on Saturday to Sasquatch on Monday to Saskatoon on Tuesday.
Austin Psych Fest (now called LEVITATION) has announced its lineup. It now runs May 8-10. Lineup includes:
The Flaming Lips Tame Impala The Jesus and Mary Chain Spiritualized Primal Scream The Black Angels Thee Oh Sees Mac DeMarco Melody's Echo Chamber Lightning Bolt A Place to Bury Strangers The Sword Earth Fuzz (Ty Segall & Friends) The Soft Moon Metz White Fence
and a lot more smaller bands. Judging by the dates and location I'd say we're sure to get at least a couple of these!
Oooh, if The Sword ends up being "the heavy band" next year I will be pleased as punch. Sadly, I think they are one of the least likely candidates on that list, but I would really be ok with that whole lineup.
