Predictions For Sasquatch 2012 (Guess 50)

The annual Sasquatch Blog Guess 50 is back a bit early this year. These are just my guesses based on some facts, some probability, a joke, and a lot of hunch. It is not the actual lineup!


Bon Iver, Deadmau5, Avett Brothers, MGMT, The Shins, Skrillex, At The Drive-In, Explosions in the Sky, Beirut, James Blake, Ghostland Observatory, Built to Spill, Girl Talk, Santigold, Yo La Tengo, St. Vincent, Pretty Lights, Low, Cage The Elephant, The Joy Formidable, The Head and the Heart, Portugal. The Man, Tune-Yards, M. Ward, Real Estate, Blitzen Trapper, Excision, Wild Flag, 12th Planet, The Civil Wars, Apparat, Girls, Akron/Family, Juniper, The Sheepdogs, WU LYF, The War On Drugs, Starfucker, Shearwater, Childish Gambino, EMA, Frank Turner, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Youth Lagoon, Alabama Shakes, Hey Rosetta, We Are Augustines, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, The Parson Red Heads, The Physics, Couer de Pirate, Dragon Boy Suede, Seattle Rock Orchestra (performing the Beatles)


I quit updating this list a week before the lineup was announced, due to the website malfunction confirming multiple bands. Therefore I wasn't able to add a couple bands who appeared highly likely a couple days before the lineup was announced (Mogwai, Feist, I Break Horses, Spiritualized, etc.).

sharon van etten, tv on the radio, cloud nothings, booka shade, Feist, miike snow, grimes, clams casino, zola jesus, cat power, beirut, destroyer, godspeed you Black emperor, keep shelly in athens, real estate, the black angles, flying lotus and the weeknd,steve malkmaus, chairlift, sleigh bells
a couple of hopefuls - sigur ros, the XX, ween, gaerth emery,

Roscog said...

i read a lot about how some bands are touring in the NW in march, april and may and that there is no way they would head back up to the NW to play Sasquatch. If that is the case - there will be no one left. there are going to have to be a few that come back...no?

another hopeful -Franz Ferdinand

Rad Stevens said...

TV on the Radio -> RHCP Friday
Fleet Foxes -> Bon Iver Saturday
The Shins -> Tom Petty Sunday
Kraftwerk -> Deadmau5 Monday

Girls, Real Estate, King Krule, Destroyer, Caveman, Knife Party,
Health, TNAF, Cloud Nothings, Juniper, Bear in Heaven, Odd Future, Sharon Van Etten, St.Vincent, Rusko, Chiddy Bang, Twerps, ........

i would really hate if that were the actual lineup. my favorite thing about sassy is that the "big name" factor is relatively low compared to most festivals who just go out and buy the biggest bands they can. long live the small music festivals!

Anonymous said...

There won't be any Fleet Foxes; Robin Pecknold tweeted that they won't be playing any festivals this summer.

I can confirm St. Vincent...

I can also confirm that there will be more Coachella cross-overs than any year before. Though Sasquatch will dominate Coachella in terms of EDM.

add youth lagoon to that, hes my friend

Only predicting a few, mainly EDM: RHCP, The Shins, Bon Iver, Arctic Monkeys, Florence and the Machine, Pretty Lights, Knife Party, Avicii, Zeds Dead, Flux Pavillion and Doctor P, Zedd, Rusko

Anonymous said...

Friday is going to be all EDM with either Deadmau5, S.H.M. or Guetta headlining. probably mau5 in my opinion and with someone like avicii or porter robinson sub headlining

Anonymous said...

Okay, here is a bad attempt, but here goes nothing.

RHCP, Bon Iver, The Shins, Deadmau5, Childish Gambino (Coachella cross over), Flux Pavillion, Sigur Ros, MGMT (after there not so good album for redemption), miike snow, sharon van etten, and avicii.

know ID yuh said...

@zach149, I've had Youth Lagoon (among others) on the list I've been compiling for a couple months, but was waiting to see if he announced another Seattle date after his Seattle show this weekend. Then I saw he is opening for Death Cab For Cutie in Seattle in early May, and figured he was out. I know there are exceptions to the radius clause, and this seems like as good of an exception as there is. In other words, I believe you, but I would be interested to hear what your friend has to say about the radius clause. There are very few exceptions each year.

Anonymous said...

Primus, Sigur Rios, Deadmau5, Fleet Foxes, Mumford, Vampire Weekend, Mgmt, Bon Iver, Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Avicii, The weeknd, miike snow, cloud nothings, M83, Neon Indian, St. Vincent, Drake, A$AP Rocky, Araabmuzik, The Civil Wars, Tune Yards,

Tons of EDM
Lots of folk.
Expect a big name headliner.

This is the blindest guess

@10:21pm Luckily Sasquatch is in the
Spring...It would be great to see them there.

I'm not making predictions just a few hopefuls

AT THE DRIVE-IN, Band of Horses, Interpol, The Shins, Real Estate, Neon Indian, Justice, Kaskade, M83, Rusko, to name a few...however just having ATDI would make going this year a lock for me

Anonymous said...

RHCP,Bon Iver, the shins,some form of jack white,crystal castles, mgmt, band of horses,the joy formidable,sharon van etten, explosions in the sky, M83, the naked and famous, empire of the sun, Black angels, vampire weekend,temper trap, passion pit,

Deadmau5, flux pavilion doctor p, Datsick, Nero, Knife party, feed me, zeds dead, girl talk.

I also say it every year but this is gonna be the year of Daft Punk! haha

Probably a lil far fetched but I see Sasquatch putting itself on the map as a premier festival this year, with ticket sales going way up the last couple of years money is becoming less of an issue, and who doesn't want to play at the gorge?? shits magical..
Sasquatch>Coachella

RADIOHEAD! They still have the whole month of May open.

Why does everyone keeping listing/wishing for MGMT. Their set there 2 years ago was not that great, they don't have any US tour dates so far in 2012, no new album, and are kinda played out IMHO.

Anonymous said...

im not the biggest mgmt fan myself but thought thier show two years ago was awesome, ive never seen the pit so crazy and everyone on the hill jumping in crazed excitement when they began to play time to pretend..

atlas said...

Why do some people think Justice could possibly play Sasquatch? This would be one of the top bands I'd want to see, but aren't they playing in Europe in late May then Primavera Sound on June 1st? Would they really come back to the US?

know ID yuh said...

Justice won't be at Sasquatch.

Anonymous said...

Pretty Lights? People need to branch out.

Jaffy Rider said...

I think MGMT had a pretty good set 2 years ago, lots of energy (almost too much) in the front pit. ATDI would be cool, but i would prefer if The Mars Volta played- they have a new album out in march. Chili peppers would be a good friday night headliner to kick it off. Bon Iver would be nice in there somewhere.
wish list: Other Lives, The Head and the Heart, Lanterns on the Lake, M83, Akron/Family, Atlas Sound, Portugal. the man, Heartless Bastards, Jack White in any form, Dr. John, Jimmy Cliff, Phish.

I am Kingler said...

Hoping for the Bon Iver headliner, Here is a little design I did for a hoodie, thought I'd share it with you guys

Griffs said...

Okay, I'm thinking three of the headliners are coming from this group: Bon Iver, Mumford and Sons, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beirut, Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Sigur Ros. I think the fourth will be EDM. IF we don't get an EDM, then I think all four are going to be from that group. Primus is really the only other band I could see as a headliner.

AS for an EDM headliner, I'd be down with Deadmau5. Just no MGMT. Please.

MGMT are awful live. Every band sounds a tad better at the Gorge.

so now the question is who the heck is going to headline? I was almost certain RHCP was to be the biggest name at the fest. Glad they're not but confused nonetheless...

Thank god for no RHCP.

I would say Kathleen Edwards, and the Sheepdogs are couple of good bets from Canada. Kathleen has a new album, has played Sasquatch before and is Justin Vernon's gf so it seems to make sense.

Otherwise, I don't really have a clue this year besides St. Vincent, and Wild Flag seeming like locks.

Anonymous said...

Any thoughts on MSTRKRFT's chances of being there?

Anonymous said...

MGMT are the greatest thing since the creation of The Gorge itself. The reason they have no new album yet is because they are working on it as we speak, they have been touring for 2 years straight. I'd say there is a 67% chance they will be at Sasquatch 2012, they better, my ticket purchase depends on it.

Anonymous said...

all my predictions for headliners are bein counted out... id say now theres a 90 percent chance edm will headline the mainstage, if its not deadmau5 ill be pist, pretty lights would be cool too, they killed it on the gorge mainstage in september

i'll play.

My guess is that we might see one or two huge acts like Paul Mccartney, Morrissey, Stevie Wonder, and/or Kings of Leon. Black Keys and Radiohead might still be in the picture too.

As for medium acts, Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons, Band of Horses, Ryan Adams, The Head & The Heart, Dawes, & M. Ward, Cat Power.

Other Mentions: The Sheepdogs, Kathleen Edwards, J Roddy Walston & The Business, Allen Stone, Gary Clark Jr., Of Monsters & Men, Cat Power, U.S. Royalty

Doit2012 said...

What exactly stops Roger Waters from playing Sasquatch on Friday (the 26th)? He is playing in Seattle on the 24th and Vancouver on the 26th. Perfect for a nice long late night Friday set at Sasquatch. His draw is big enough to play Seattle and Sasquatch back to back. Can you imagine the Wall??!

I think its a decent guess... Maybe I just love Pink Floyd?

Roger Waters won't be on the lineup. His stage set up is massive, and wouldn't fit on the Sasquatch main stage without redesigning it, and that doesn't make a lot of sense for a one off show.

Also, the dude is old, three shows in three nights is a lot to ask out of the geezer. He isn't doing three nights in a row once on his current tour. Even when he is playing the same venue 3+ times, he has off nights scheduled.

Doit2012 said...

You're probably right, just wishful thinking on my part. And yeah his stage is massive!!

This is just the least leaked/rumored sasquatch year I can ever remember. I'm both super excited and extremely worried.

What exactly is the santa clause? Or is it a radius clause?

know ID yuh said...

The Santa Clause is a general rule a lot of use in determining if a band is more or less likely to play the festival. If you've spent the last several years studying touring trends of the bands who end up on the Sasquatch lineup (like I have), you have a much better understanding of the Santa Clause. If you are new to the game, you might think Santa Clause doesn't exist, but that's not very imaginative. I'll try to briefly explain it. Have you noticed Sasquatch never books hardcore punk or heavy metal bands? Have you noticed Sasquatch always books sensitive indie bands? This is a trend that should continue this year, and is the fundamental basis of the Santa Clause. It's about which bands are naughty, and which bands are nice.

From what I have seen as far as tour date positions, likeliness, and hunch.

Bon Iver, MGMT, Knife Party, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, arctic monkeys, WU LYF, Beirut, Portugal. The Man, Diplo, Gogol Bordello, AWOLNATION, Flux Pavillion, Born Gold, Foxy Shazam, Whalebones, Mad Rad, Chromeo, Death Grips, Hot Chip.

I would really love to see Radiohead, Animal Collective, Man Man, Das Racist, xx, Modest Mouse, or some OFWGKTA there though...

I hate to be a synic, but is anybody else remotely concerned that nothing has been leaked because Sasqutch has nobody worth leaking on the bill? I like a lot of these predictions, but it seems every "headliner" has been nixed for one reason or another. Let alone the recent string of "santa clause" exclusions on quality smaller acts. What are we left with? A festival full of quality smaller acts? Great. Or a last minute move to ensure a sell out because Sasquatch didn't land anyone worth getting? If so maybe the Black Eyed Peas are still available. Here's to being wrong...

Anonymous said...

Why are so few thinking outside the box with headliner predictions?
Most of the popular headliner predictions have been all but counted out with tour dates being released (ie RHCP, Radiohead, Black Keys)
Why do most assume sub headliners will be pushed into headlining spaces?
One, Two or more of the headliners are hopefully not even on the radar at this point, would be a nice surprise. Most of the aforementioned suggestions are very underwhelming, so here is to hoping we get some quality acts none of us have even thought of yet!
So on that note here are some wild predictions I hope will come true!
-Trent Reznor(Hopeflly NIN but more likely How to Destroy Angels)
-Tom Petty-Saw someone else throw this one-props for believing
-Paul Simon- because it would be cool
-Soungarden on the 25th - in the netherlands on the 27th, nothing before

well. the red hot chili peppers have an entire north american tour in the works. and if you look at the dates during memorial day weekend...they have every day scheduled aside from sunday the 27th.......ironic enough, the last time they played the gorge (i believe) was the 27th of May, 1999. and i had a dream they were one of the headlining bands last night. so there you have it. haha

@anon 1:09, quit filling up the comments with nonsense of the Santa Clause being about anything other than who is naughty and who is nice. I have yet to pound this joke into the ground to the fullest extent. Slayer is naughty, Bon Iver is nice, there you have it.

MGMT would be the laziest booking ever.

Everyone wanting Roger Waters or Tom Petty is dumb. AZ has never booked a classic rock act for Sasquatch! Also, expect something out of left field as AZ likes to take risks, be a trend setter and let the festival march to the beat of its own drum. There'll likely be an underwhelming headliner or two thrown in there like The Shins or Bon Iver just because that's how Sasquatch rolls. Don't be surprised to see Built to Spill as a headliner and some electronic act as a headliner either. I think The Roots, Bjork & possibly RHCP (they can be flown in) sound about right with maybe Portishead or Deadmaou5 as an electronic headliner one night.

What are the odds that Agnes Obel plays? I think her tour ends in Europe in April?

Regarding the fake lineup posted earlier, it's a good one, whoever created it spent a lot of time making sure there were no touring conflicts. However, anyone paying attention can come up with 100 bands who don't have scheduling conflicts.

I will say it's fake because there are a couple bands not listed that will be there, and a couple bands listed that would be lucky to sell 20 tickets locally, and that's assuming they have a large family. The easist ways to spot fakes is checking the billing order, which is very difficult to get right. There are several bands listed way too high or low in the order to be accurate. Lineups leaked this early are never legit anyway.

80% chance a nearly identical lineup appears on Travis Hays' website shortly (Guerilla Candy). He always makes a lineup guess, and it's usually of that length, and usually contains a bunch of bands you've never heard of who won't be there. His website is linked on the right side of the main page of this blog, so check it out.

How is my aim random anon, aka Travis?

Anonymous said...

I would like to say that I think the line up list from Jan 23rd is probably some sort of leak because not only does it have a strange number of bands that all seem very possible to be at Sasquatch, but the Seattle Rock Orchestra in there playing Muse which seems like a very very odd guess seeing as how they play many different bands musics.

That being said, I mostly hope the line up is real. Seeing Washed Out would be awesome. I hope that maybe MAYBE Franz Ferdinand will be there(that or the Killers but I bet that both of those bands are extremely unlikely) Also I really think that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be there because not only are they not playing Coachella, but they don't have a tour date up here, and my friend who has a connection to a sound guy for the RHCP says they originally were going to have a tour date at Key Arena on the 30th of March or something, but they ended up not booking it for some reason, so maybe they'll be at sasquatch? I'd love to see them there.

I hope the one on the 23rd is not the leak....I really hope.

Just talked to a guy who partied with the road crew from Tool when they were in Texas who said Tool will be touring and playing a major festival. Tool for loud friday!

Anonymous said...

I would be down to see Tool at the Gorge. Most people say they killed it at coachella last time. Not the same but for Loud Friday I would love either At The Drive In, My Bloody Valentine, or A Place to Bury Strangers

Id also love to see big d and the kids table.

I dont know what sasquatch is like for ska though.

I'm not a Tool fan, but it would be cool as hell to see them at the Gorge.

HA! Thanks for that. I'm kinda glad that may not be the actual line-up, although I bet there will be a ton of those bands on the line-up. I will look into this Guerrilla Candy Travis fellow...

And can everyone me why Radiohead has been ruled out? Because they're playing Key Arena? A man can dream. Missed them on their previous Gorge date and need to see them there before I die.

Thanks, but Wild Flag was the first rumored band on this blog two months ago. Old news.

Why is Bon Iver suddenly in the rumored section? Do you have a semi-legitimate piece of evidence or just figured it was probably a lock now?

Why is Feist not on the list? The entire month of may for her is fully open, and she's playing some other festivals as well. I saw her in Calgary in December and she was AMAZING. I'd love to see her again.

JTillyer said...

Justin Vernon just co-produced an album with/is rumored to be dating Kathleen Edwards. She plays Seattle on April 3, and her tour ends on April 28. I think it's reasonable to guess that both she and her backup vocalist/opening act, Hannah Georgas, may play if Bon Iver does.

You guys make me sad. I'm guessing a lot of you haven't actually listened to a lot of live MGMT performances? They are AMAZING live. Their sound has improved a whole lot even since 2010. They are working on their 3rd album now but they are doing festivals in South America in March/April so why not Sasquatch? Yeah it's pretty unlikely but it would be the greatest thing ever. And by the way CONGRATULATIONS WAS A GREAT ALBUM. And they too are tired of Kids. But when 3/4 of the crowd is just being rude and annoying because they aren't playing their hits, it gets hard.

I've seen them more than once. Awful live. Anyone who disagrees probably has their retarded head dress on a little too tight.

I have to pitch in as well. I really love MGMT's live show. If you're only there to hear Kids, TTP and Electric Feel, then yeah you'll probably be disappointed. But if you come open minded and really are there for the music it's amazing. Seen them twice & they were amazing each time. One of the best concerts I've been to.

why hasn't anyone really mentioned one of those bands completely unexpected that could headline...killers or strokes or something alone those lines.

and at this point it's pretty obvious RHCP and Radiohead won't be coming, surprised it's even being considered an option at this point

Anonymous said...

Well I have no idea who's gonna play. I am only a 1 year Sasquatch vet. That being said I really want Grace Potter & the Nocturnals to play. They're playing at Coachella and are not doing anyhting around the time of Sasquatch! You should take a listen, they're amazing. First Aid Kit is also awesome! Flux would be epic too!

I hope there is some kinda of overlap between Coachella & Sasquatch! I think Coachella has a solid lineup

I'm pretty sure we all know that Daft Punk is gonna be there. That's why no one is saying it right? Because everyone already knows...

If you look at the "leak" that's supposedly fake from Jan. 23 by this Guerrilla Candy fellow and compare it to the "leak" from the Sasquatch website glitch and you've got some pretty solid names if you put faith in the glitch leak being legit. So seems like more weight should be given to the leak from Jan. 23, fake or not. How else can the matching of the smaller names and some of the bigger names, i.e. The Shins, be explained. But I guess it doesn't really matter since all will be revealed in a few days.
