So are we taking the addition of a Fourth Day to Maysquatch Sasquatch is a given? The high price for three days seemed somewhat reasonable with two weekends, but now it's just a very expensive festival - not that any of them are particularly cheap...
If it does indeed happen, do you think they'd try to piece it together with refugees from the July shipwreck or start from scratch? Mix of both?
I would be pleased as punch they do. But, they won't. Adding a fourth day to May add this point would cause way too many headaches, especially since they just knocked $50 off the ticket price got everyone who bought passes to both weekends.
So I guess NIN and Soundgarden can go ahead and tell us about their PNW stop now. I held out on jumping on tickets for one of those shows, since I was planning on going to Sasquatch a couple weeks prior.
Good point. I imagine the artists have known this was coming for a while already.
Omg fuck buttons. Also The Stranger says e-mails will be sent to people who bought July tix for Kraftwerk presale.
All of the Fucking Buttons. And the Big Gigantic Beetroots. And the Clouds of Nothing's and Death. And the Sandriding Helms Bordello of Montreal. And the Dimitri Benson. And the dreams of hiding from the summer sun in a dance tent full of awesome all weekend...
I have been checking my mailbox OCD style waiting for this to arrive. It is driving me crazy! I haven't heard it yet. What do you think?
I wasn't as instantly blown away as I expected to be, but it's really good. The first listen just kinda sounded like another generic rap album to me. But, with a couple more listens, the brilliance in it started to become more obvious.
That new Kool A.D, on the other hand, that one got me right away. My opinion is probably biased though, on account of me already being a huge fan of Das Racist not so much Freddie Gibbs.

Woooo! Woke up to a CD in the mail! Pics of the cover art and track list coming soon. And Professor, I love both covers, I can see how it would've been hard to pick one.
Glad you like them. I was happy with how they turned out, especially considering that my original idea fell through. As far as the mix itself, I don't expect you to like all of the songs on it, but I think the first and last tracks alone are worth the cost of admission by anyone's standards.

They've come too far to turn back now. If sales of the 3 day passes are too sluggish, I could see them possibly opening up one day passes again and/or returning to the single 4 day weekend model next year. Keep in mind that Snacks still sees this as one big festival taking place on two weekends; I don't see any realistic reason why he would decide to cancel half of the festival.
