MR: This one’s going to grow, I feel, especially if they can continue squeezing in more artists, like we discussed. It’s also hard to compete with The Gorge, and I absolutely love how they give mid-tier acts like The National or Queens of the Stone Age top billing. Plus, with the exception of their hometown gig at Counterpoint, I can’t imagine a cooler place to watch OutKast.
FM: Remember the Santigold dance party? I imagine the crowd will be going wild for OutKast. I think the second weekend had a more interesting lineup overall, so hopefully they can squeeze some more names in.
In hindsight, one of Sasquatch!’s greatest advantages, though, was that for a while it included four days of music. Now that it’s back down to one weekend, I wonder if they will return to that format next year.
