@ sleepyh, I made a case for a few obvious choices. Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, and Converge. All three have played the major American festivals, and in my opinion have the best chance at getting booked. Maybe I'll try for Dying Fetus next year if one of these options happen. Wakka wakka
Behemoth and Eyehategod have both played the Gorge before. I think that qualifies them for Sasquatch. However, I would gladly take Mastodon or DEP for now. Baby steps.

Historically speaking, tickets have typically gone on sale the Friday immediately following the lineup announcement. Is that right? If my understanding of how calendars work is correct, that means tickets will probably go on sale on February 6 this year. I'm just trying to plan ahead because I failed to get presale passes, so I want to make sure I've got money in the bank the day general sale starts. I don't want a repeat of the 2013 ticket chase.

Pea is a member of the Elite Group of Superfans. They have sleepovers at AZ's house and play truth or dare. Every time Snacks picks truth, Pea asks how many crossovers there are with a certain festival. Every time he picks dare, Pea dares him to say how many crossovers there are. I don't know why he doesn't just dare him to say the whole lineup, but I don't fully understand how the game works.

With all these lineups coming out, I'm shocked at the complete lack of Faith No More. I seriously thought they would be playing all of the festivals this year. Maybe that will make their Sasquatch appearance all that much more special, but I'm starting to consider them less and less likely as time goes on.

Speaking of the Lips, they haven't been around for a few years. I know they don't really have anything going on right now aside from Wayne's further descent into insanity, but they are about due for a Sasquatch appearance.
Okay so I talked to someone involved with Hot Chip and he said that he can't tell me because he's been in trouble before from festivals for revealing info early. The way the response was worded though (and the fact that he even responded) makes me think that there's a decent possibility.
Feel free to move this to Rampant Speculation if you think it fits better there.
That's a good sign. They usually have no problem saying they're not playing, but the "I can't say anything" response tends to mean "yes".
What, now your post is better than mine because you link to CoS?! COLLUSION
Oops. I looked to see if anyone had mentioned it yet, but missed your post tucked in there. The first page of this thread is hard to load sometimes. But, since you mention it, my post is better because the link contains album art and track listing. *tongue sticking out emoji*
