Sasquatch

The Sasquatch! Music Festival is proud to announce that the event has completely sold out of all 100,000 tickets (25,000 per day over 4 days) in record time exactly one week from the lineup announcement.

All festival attendees are encouraged to carpool to the event and register their mileage savings at www.esurance.com/carpool to win prizes and track the positive environmental impact. People who shared rides to Sasquatch in 2010 (and registered with Zimride), saved 326,920 driving miles--the equivalent of 1.37 trips to the moon.

This year's Coachella sold out slightly quicker. This year's Bonnaroo goes on sale Saturday, February 19th at noon Eastern. The lineup was announced today.

The Walkmen are playing Bonnaroo, and their frontman is playing in Brooklyn this weekend.

The Strokes are playing Coachella and Bonnaroo and probably SXSW and Madison Square Garden on April 1st.

Sharon Van Etten is playing Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and the official BrooklynVegan SXSW showcase this year.

The Black Keys are playing Bonnaroo and Coachella and were on Conan O'Brien last night. Video below...

I have heard that Sasquatch urine makes a great vagrant repellent.
Slather yourself liberally.

Festivals are so in these days that they're beginning to be out.

Why did Dan Auerbach shave his beard? I love beards. I am not sure I can listen to the Black Keys anymore.

He shaved his beard because when he leaned over the table to reach for his drink his beard kept getting inadvertently dipping into the hummus platter.

While douchebags are complaining about festival lineups, actual music fans are grabbing the tickets.

Wow, this is getting ridiculous.....

Right on 11PM! All concertgoers are douchebags. BV commenters sitting at the computers in their mothers' basements are the true music fans.

ATP 3 day passes sold out the fastest. It is the best festival in the world.

its only 25k per day. thats a pretty small festival. that's like 1/3 of bonnaroo.

I like festivals and meeting new people with similar tatses in music.

Posted by Burg | February 16, 2011 11:10 AM

I had the same question as 9:31--it seems like in the past two or three years, tops, festivals suddenly sell out immediately. What is up?

Posted by Anonymous | February 16, 2011 3:41 PM

I agree that is crazy! how did they sell out so fast? I thought they all done!

The only way I can afford to go to concerts is by saving money by going here http://carinsurance.term.org/
