According to the schedule page on the Sasquatch! site, the top 10 must see artists (or artists with the most attendees) are: 1) MGMT (1842 attendees) 2) Vampire Weekend (1807 attendees) 3) Band of Horses (1661 attendees) 4) Broken Social Scene (1648 attendees) 5) LCD Soundsystem (1592 attendees) 6) Passion Pit (1586 attendees) 7) The xx (1487 attendees) 8) My Morning Jacket (1471 attendees) 9) Deadmau5 (1430 attendees) 10) The National (1408 attendees)
Some of these seem to be quite different than the top 10 lists of people on this board... Thoughts? Too many bros who don't hit up the message board?
By the way, the next ten are: 11) She & Him (1372 attendees) 12) Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (1304 attendees) 13) Massive Attack (1260 attendees) 14) Kid Cudi (1233 attendees) 15) Miike Snow (1189 attendees) 16) Mumford & Sons (1155 attendees) 17) Pavement (1067 attendees) 18) Tegan and Sara (1060 attendees) 19) Local Natives (1051 attendees) 20) Caribou (1029 attendees)
1. Pavement 2. Massive Attack 3. The National 4. Deadmau5 5. LCD Soundsystem 6. The Tallest Man On Earth 7. Passion Pit 8. She & Him (but mostly just Zooey Deschanel in person...) 9. The New Pornographers 10. Broken Social Scene
I do not think that Japandroids would play the Yeti stage like this post suggests. Weren't they scheduled for the main stage last year before they dropped out and were replaced by Deerhoof?
I also cannot imagine The New Pornographers playing anywhere but on the main stage. I don't remember what they did in the past, but were they on the Wookie stage in their previous appearances? If not, I can't see them downgrading from the main stage...
And wasn't The Hold Steady on the main stage in 2007? I also don't think they would move down a stage, but I could be wrong.
I for one am going to miss reading all of you interneting interneters arguing about something we have little idea about. It has been a very entertaining last few months! In a way, tonight's announcement is bittersweet because it means saying goodbye to the speculation and guessing game and to all of you! I hope we can all find something to debate in the months leading up to Sasquatch! Maybe stage placements? Enjoy the lineup announcement! It has been tons of fun reading your predictions and rumors!!
