You guys are a bunch of whiny bitches if this is going to affect you going to Sasquatch this year or any other year.
It does because it shows that they were being disingenuous and misleading about the product that they were selling.
Remember when it was pointed out that the Bloody Beet Roots (sp? I'm not sober) were "double booked". How long did fuck nation intentionally allow people to schedule non refundable flights, vacation time, and other efforts only to have them fucking cancel half of an entire festival because "the Sasquatch community spoke."
How long did they know they were not going to put on July Squatch? That should reveal one of the many reasons some of us are reconsidering what sasquatch means to us.
Unfortunately, what Sasquatch means to us and what it means to JiveNation is nowhere close the same thing. This has been a long established and well known fact. Sasquatch is still magical to me and a big bowl of cash to them. That has not and will not change.

After several beers and a couple bowls of chips, I've calmed down a bit and I've decided that instead of focusing on what we've lost, I'm going to be happy for what we still have. We still have the best weekend if the year to look forward to. May still has a pretty good lineup. Sure, it's not the overwhelming mind fuck that July was, but it's still pretty damn good. Besides, let's be honest here, two incredible festivals at the most beautiful place on planet a month apart was a little greedy. Hell, there are starving kids in Africa who don't even get one Sasquatch weekend a year, and were pissed because we don't get two any more? Don't get me wrong, in as bummed as anyone, but there is a silver lining here somewhere. And, goddamit, I'm gonna keep drinking abs smoking until it's all I can see.
I was just an observer of the whole episode. The conversation was actually pretty civil until the epic rant, I understand though we all make mistakes. In these situations it is better to let your emotions cool off a bit before responding.
I give no fucks because reddit is full of pedophiles, men rights activists, shitty fucking persons, and Internet keyboard warriors that think they can outsmart the FBI in identifying bombing suspects.
Reddit can seriously suck a giant fucking dick, and this comes from someone who has sucked dicks for pleasure.
Fuck reddit and 95% of anyone who posts on reddit.
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...
