Sasquatch 2011 Tickets On Sale Saturday, November 20th! Foo Fighters Headlining

Fourth Day Added:

Sasquatch! 2011 will include a fourth day, with the Foo Fighters headlining Friday's event. The official dates for Sasquatch! 2011 are Friday, May 27th through Monday, May 30th. The tenth anniversary will be the first time the festival will be four days. Keep in mind they have done a Friday show before, a half day in 2006 with the music starting at 4:00 p.m. There was no camping the night before. (Update: The campground will open Thursday, May 26th, at noon).

Tickets:

Tickets go on sale this Saturday, November 20th, at 10:00 a.m. PST. Four day passes available this weekend for $285, which includes camping (Premium camping and VIP parking will be available as an upgrade, $160 for premium camping, $80 for VIP parking). It won't be like last year when you bought a three day pass, and receive three single day tickets. This year, you get one four day pass, which upon arrival, is exchanged for a four day festival wristband. You obviously can't remove the wristband for the festival's duration. Single day tickets will be available Saturday, February 12th, 2011 for $79.50 per day.

Lineup:

Full lineup will be announced Monday, February 7th, which is a couple weeks earlier than past years. Mark your calenders.

Foo Fighters:

It's hard to believe Dave Grohl has been involved in meaningful rock music for 20 years, fifteen being with the Foo Fighters. What is the drummer for one of the biggest bands in the world supposed to do when the lead singer perishes? Pick up a guitar, play music, and move on. It's easy to say, "I don't like the Foo Fighters, I'd rather see (fill in the blank)." One of the great things about festivals is that you have the option to see a huge draw without having to pay their showcased fees. If you are already going to be there, why not check them out?

If you have listened to any radio over the last fifteen years, you might be surprised how many Foo Fighters songs you know. I can only name four or five off the top of my head, but having seen them a couple years ago, I know I recognized nearly every song they played. They had a stimulating light show, so if nothing else, there's that. Who doesn't remember the pop cultured, "Footos," or how sexy the drummer looks dressed in drag? With the formation of Them Crooked Vultures, and the Sunny Day Real Estate reunion, it's not like the market has been saturated with recent Foo Fighter shows (their last performance was over a year ago).

If you still can't get over the Foo Fighters headlining a night, look at it this way. Yesterday we were speculating who the three headliners would be. Today, we are still speculating who the other three headliners will be. If you hate the Foo Fighters, you can catch another act on the back stage (there hasn't been an unopposed headliner the last couple years). Or you can do what you already had planned for Friday night, get drunk at the campground. You now have three options, where before you had one. It's a win win win situation.

is there any idea where the launch party will be?

know ID yuh said...

Seattle :)

No Pearl Jam PLZ said...

Now that the foo fighters have filled the festival's 90's radio rock quota, there will be no need to book pearl jam to headline another night, RIGHT?

know ID yuh said...

Greetings Pearl Jam superfan. There are only a handful of bands deemed headliner worthy at any US festival, and half of them meet the "90s radio rock," quota. The Foo Fighters confirmation has absolutely nothing to do with who the other three headliners will be.

Aran said...

THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!!


I really want Built to Spill to be at the festival this year :) I miss them!

Is the camping good starting Thursday night? Does it include Monday night??

know ID yuh said...

Yes, the camping includes Thursday and Monday.

I hope Deadmau5 is back!! That was a highlight from last Sasquatch

I wish tickets and camping were sold separately. This sucks for people who want to camp elsewhere. The Sasquatch campgrounds remind me of District 9. Such filth.

andy said...

Is there a way to buy a 4 day pass without parking/camping?!?!?!

know ID yuh said...

Not at this time. That likely won't change.

well said! I get so frustrated hearing people complain about the foo fighters! I know I'll be there for their set but if I wasn't a fan I am sure that there would be 3 other bands/djs/comedians to check out at the same time.

Anonymous said...

foo fighters are the most underrated band ever!!! the gorge and all its glory will have a hell of a night when they're on stage.

Anonymous said...

also pearl jam is one of the best ever live. We and everyone else would love to see them there. If you dont know how good their live shows are, thats your fault. only other better band live is Dave Matthews Band!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Honestly the best live show ever is Iron Maiden hands down, DMB not even close. Check some youtube videos if you don't believe me and we'd be so lucky if they ever came to sasquatch. Foo Fighters rock big time though people should stop complaining

Who is this guy anyway? I really have know ID yuh either. Your assuming people are going to hate on the Foos is hating by association, and you should be punished for this atrocity. Foos rock. End of story. Posting anything more makes you sound like a 'tard.

Alisa said...

Deadmau5 was my highlight too! I loved everyone but Deadmau5 is my kryptonite!

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know how long the 4 day passes will be available? If single day passes go on sale February 12th, does that mean the 4 day passes will be available until then?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, unless you're just taking a wild guess.

Anonymous said...

Last year ticket prices were raised after the lineup was announced, is that the same this year? Or is the price the same even after the lineup's out?

Anonymous said...

wow, that was pretty harsh on the Foo's.... So they're really famous -- you cannot deny that Dave has an amazing voice and that they are extremely talented. I have loved them for years and they're music has gotten me through some tough times. I have wanted to see them live forever! Just because they're not obscure does not mean they are not amazing. I'm stoked!

Beginning Monday 2/14/11 at 10am: FOUR DAY passes increase to $295, single day tickets to any four days will be available for $79.50 (again, all prices all inclusive). These prices run (if still available) until midnight May 26th.

Beginning Friday May 27, single day ticket price goes to $89.50 for each day (no more 4 day passes available). Again, price is all inclusive.

PS Foo Fighters are freaking awesome. I have always wanted to see them live. They are the most underrated band ever. The are amazing. Their acoustic set is also amazing to listen to.

Sir Coyler said...

"involved in meaningful rock music for 20 years" - are you absolutely batshit crazy?

know ID yuh said...

The answer to your question would be yes. However, as it pertains to that direct quote, why would that suggestion make me batshit crazy?

MODEST MOUSE?! Helllllllllyeahhh. That will change my entire life.

All this festival needs is sts9 and the octopus project.

Does anyone know what the day to day line up is going to be? Who is playing on the last day? I am wondering who i will miss if i leave monday.

Anonymous said...

Anyone know where to get tickets close to face value?? They sold out and now I'm only seeing tix for double what they're worth :(

[--♥Em] said...

I have 2 4-day VIP package tickets at face value (plus the service charge I paid) - $799 for 2. This is full VIP, not just VIP parking. I am not making any profit. I have invoice to prove what I paid. Let me know if you're interested. markvcr@yahoo.com

Sasquatch is a brilliant festival, I had a great time there. Saw some wicked bands and ended up meeting some really nice people and hanging out with them for most of the time. It's awesome when you meet some people for the first time and realise that you've got a load in common. It's a shame we didn't live closer to each other cos I could see us hanging out quite a lot.
