If you’re lucky enough to be a part of the sold out 2012 Sasquatch! music festival, there are a couple of things you need to know and understand.
Firstly, analyze and decide on the schedule. There will be conflicts with regards to which artists you want to see and when. You’ll be able to find out schedules from the guides at the various booths, but plan ahead and get to the front of the stage by quickly checking below.
You can catch performances which are happening simultaneously, but make sure you have it properly planned. There can be delays, and of course, the Gorge is a vast area to walk around. With that said, Sasquatch! is phenomenal year after year. So grab yourself a drink and choose your stage. Don’t forget some sunscreen too.
Secondly, plan your showers carefully. The showering area will get extremely crowded if you don’t time it perfectly. With tens of thousands of other campers, you’ve got to get in where you can. The same applies if you need to restock from the convenience store. Although they rarely sell out of items as they have a steady amount coming in, it always makes sense to grab what you need when you can. The same applies to official clothing merchandise, except once it’s gone – it’s gone. There were some fantastic zip-up hoodies that went last year that I’m still pining over.
With the festival kicking off on Friday, the music will be starting of course later than usual.
Of course you shouldn’t forget to check out Of Monsters and Men at 6:05pm on the Sasquatch stage and HoneyHoney at 5:05pm at the Yeti Stage. But the Sasquatch stage will intensify at 6:10pm as Santigold transitions into the always fantastic Girl Talk and concludes with Pretty Lights.
The Bigfoot stage (2011′s best stage) will open with Yellow Ostrich and conclude with Explosions in the Sky, but not to be forgotten will definitely be the Banana Shack with STRFKR (kicking off as Santigold winds down) and Beats Antique‘s dance performance set (well worth watching).
