Hah! The one act who I would be by far, without question, the most excited to see is literally the last one listed: Ra Scion. Former emcee of my all time favourite hip hop act Common Market. They've played Sasquatch in the past, and I've had the chance to see them live elsewhere. Soooo good live. Did an hour long set and only broke flow once for a 5 minute break in the middle. If you end up going and like conscious hip hop I would recommend checking him out.

Danny Brown will be classic at this..

Would very much like to see Japandroids and Nick Offerman. Can't read some of the lower bands and lower comedians, will have to check out the full list later.

Not quite the star studded lineup of the last two years but still solid, especially on the undercard.

Mumford and Sons will be an awesome headliner also. Stoked to see them live. Lumineers, Arctic monkeys, Reignwolf, THE JAPANDROIDS, Edward Sharp, Dropkick Murphys, Black Rebel MC, Ryan Bingham, Youngblood Hawke, Nick Offerman on the comedy island... lots of must sees.

Sasquatch is never really big on headliners like some other festivals. They always produce a deep lineup though.

Excited to see Elliott Brood and Danny Brown.

I feel like this lineup is going to attract a more uniform crowd then usual. There is always some big folk/indie bands, but last year you found a fairly diverse mix of headliners like The Roots/Jack Black/Tenacious D/Nero that brought in a whole variety of festival goers.

I personally think it's a great lineup, deep. Excited for Sigur Ros at the Gorge.

That's a solid line-up. I'm guessing Mumford and Sons will be headlining a few festivals this summer?

Any news on Arcade Fire? I assume they won't be performing this summer until they release their album.

Apparently sold out in about 1-2 hours.

Must be the fastest a Sasquatch has ever sold out right? Grabbed mine on the presale, maybe there were too many presales this year? Or is Mumford just that big of a draw? Or maybe Macklemore?

I was kind of surprised since last year I thought the lineup had a lot more big names and it took much longer to sell out IIRC.

Anyway I fully expect resale tickets to drop to about face in a few months. Right now they're starting at $500.

I fully expect a few thousand tickets to reach the market closer to the festival...that tends to happen.

I think the scalpers were in full force this year. The past few years they've released a few thousand tickets closer to drive down the costs of tickets on the secondary markets.

Still...it made my decision not to go a lot easier.

Yeah this happened last year too, not sure if this was any faster or slower though.
I won't be certain if I can go for a couple months. Last year I got my tickets during the presale and sold them at face value in April.

I wonder if they'd ever considering doing two weekends like Coachella?

It took much longer to sell out last year. I don't remember the exact time frame, but I remember there were rumors of it selling out the first weekend after the line-up was announced and then not hearing the word 'sold out' for another month or so after.

Then more tickets hit the market in late April.

Two weekends...that's probably a few years off if it ever happens. Sasquatch just isn't on the same scale as Coachella is...which is generally why I prefer it.

Here we go. Leaving bright and early tomorrow to get in on the thursday night party and to make sure I don't miss friday night bands. (I did last year... alas)

Going to be a blast.

Totally agree. Good to see Ra Scion is still back and still making music. Now with Macklemore gaining the fanbase that he has, maybe more people will realize that some of the best hip-hop has been churning out of Seattle for a long while.

I have some buddies going to this. If it was sensible for me to make a trip to Seattle at the same time (meaning if it wasn't at the Gorge) I would have went. There are a lot of acts (The XX, Macklemore, etc) that I won't get a chance to see in Edmonton, that I would like to see, not need to see.

Also, the Gorge is probably one of, if not the best venues in North America.

Pretty deep lineup but the top is very underwhelming for me. If I was on the West Coast I probably wouldn't go.

I don't disagree... last year they really packed the headliners (Beck, Jack White, Tenacious D) but this year is really more an undercard year.

This and the campgrounds is most of the reason I go. NOTHING compares to the gorge.
