Predictions For Sasquatch! 2013 (Top 50)

These are my guesses based on some facts, some probability, and a lot of hunch/wishlist. It is not the actual lineup! For those who know how to count, you are correct, this isn't 50 acts.  I'll add more in the next couple days. It's a rough draft, so changes will be made. Typically I avoid predicting comedians, so I'm not going to use Nick Offerman to pad my stats. 

NOTE: Regarding Primavera, the festivals share acts every year.  Yes, Primavera was a different weekend than Sasquatch last year, but it was the same weekend the previous years, and they still shared a handful of bands. If you've ever flown from the east coast to the west coast, you know with the time change, you land only a couple hours later.  It's similar flying from Europe. Primavera also is a Thursday-Saturday festival, while Sasquatch is Friday-Monday.  A band playing Thursday at Primavera could fly from Europe to Seattle, continue flying west, fly around the world back to Europe, then on to Seattle for a second time, and still make it in time for a Monday Sasquatch set.

Mumford & Sons / Deadmau5 / Sigur Ros / The Knife / Knife Party / Every Other Band Containing the Word Knife / The xx / Vampire Weekend / Postal Service / Bassnectar / Kendrick Lamar / Hot Chip / Yo La Tengo / Macklemore & Ryan Lewis / Arctic Monkeys / Built to Spill / Foals / Empire of the Sun / Beach House / Tame Impala / Tegan & Sara / Flying Lotus / Japandroids / Dinosaur Jr. / The Lumineers / Franz Ferdinand / Infected Mushroom / Amon Tobin / Father John Misty / Black Rebel Motorcycle Club / Portugal. The Man / Akron/Family / A DJ With a Neat Light Show / Solange / Surfer Blood / The Cults / Grimes / Menomena / Atlas Genius / Deerhoof / Disclosure / Dillon Francis / Imagine Dragons / Wild Nothing / Gold Panda / Theophilus London / DIIV / A Guy With A Mustache / Cody ChesnuTT / Blondfire / Seattle Rock Orchestra performing the songs of Mother Mother / Suuns / Mother Mother

Post your top 50 guesses in the comments, if you dare...

Where did you come with the idea of Imagine Dragons, Dillon Francis, and The XX??! If this is even just half the lineup I will be SO HAPPY

Anonymous said...

I'd give a 90% probability that all 3 are there.

Anonymous said...

The XX and BRMC are performing the same weekend in Vancouver, BC. It's a 100% chance that they are performing at Sasquatch 2013

What's Pheonix doin around these dates? I would love to see them Co Headline.

what about beach house, band of horses, vampire weekend and mumford & sons?

Anonymous said...

Vampire Weekend, Beach House, and Mumford & Sons will be there. 80% sure.

I'd be more inclined to believe that Mother Mother would be there performing (with or without an orchestra), rather than have SRO playing Mother Mother.

As much as I would love for it to happen, I just don't see The Knife coming to Sasquatch. It would be an amazing show, no doubt about it, but it's incredibly unlikely given their current touring schedule and the fact that Coachella couldn't even book them.

I'd say there's about a 5% chance of them showing up. Not enough for me to get my hopes up.

Noah and the whale:
"We’re delighted to announce that Noah and the Whale's fourth album is entitled ‘Heart Of Nowhere’ and will be released on May 6th. In addition the band will play ‘A Month of Sundays’, four shows at London’s Palace Theatre in April and May. Click here to pre-order the album and gain exclusive access to the ticket presale for these shows http://www.noahandthewhale.com/"

They will be there

PEOPLE! look at primaveras lineup, which is the same weekend in barcelona. Many of these rumored acts are performing there so you can guarantee they wont be at sasquatch.

Anonymous said...

yeah except last year there were a handful of bands that played both

Anonymous said...

Last year, Sasquatch and Primavera didn't overlap directly (check the dates) but in previous years they have and some acts still played both. It's reasonable to expect some overlap, but probably only 5-7 bands if we're lucky.

Sound City Players
Modest Mouse or Wilco (any 2011 headliner)
Pheonix
Imagine Dragons
Atlas Genius
She and Him
Other bands we have all heard will be there

It's not 50, more of a wishlist... hoping some of these that aren't mentioned in other posts wind up there though. Sasquatch isn't a dance music fest so some of these lineup guesses must be based on some theory that the banana shack will now be the main stage. I won't go if the top four are:

Deadmau5
Portishead
The Postal Service
The Knife

Would be the worst lineup unless you adore hard drugs.
Good talk

Primavera was from the 30th of may to the 3rd of june last year so it was not really the same weekend then.

Looks like Vampire Weekend will be there!

Montana said...

I'm hoping for Tame Impala and The Lumineers...not 100% sure of that likelihood. If Nei Young Goes I'd scream like a little bitch for an hour.

Anonymous said...

Seems like all of the hubbub over Neil Young started from a misunderstanding of the full moon logos on his tour dates page ... Not saying he won't be on the poster when it gets released tonight, just that he's no more likely to be there than Portishead or The Knife, both of which look pretty damn unlikely.

E said...

The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Postal Service, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Wavves, Father John Misty, and FIDLAR will all be there (I hope)
