The Avett Brothers, Confirmed...

...according to this fansite:

Their official website nor their myspace confirm them as playing Sasquatch!, but it is feasible as they will be in Arizona with the Dave Matthews Band on May 6th. However, I doubt Dave Matthews will be at Sasquatch! as they always play three nights at the Gorge at the end of the summer.

If you can confirm or deny that the Avett Brothers are playing Sasquatch! let me know!

You asked for it and here it is. A place where rumors can start! We know that Kings of Leon are heavily rumored and that Sun Kil Moon is confirmed, but what are some other rumors out there? Here are several that I would agree with:

Coldplay - Have not played Washington since Viva La Vida came out.

Franz Ferdinand - New album and to me seem like a great fit for Sasquatch! maybe right before a headliner?

Band of Horses - New album this year and have their roots here in the Northwest.

Youth Group - I love this band from Australia. They put out a new album there in June and I believe it comes out in the U.S. in February. They are playing South by Southwest and would be a great Wookie stage band.

Weezer/Oasis Tour - Last year there was the R.E.M./Modest Mouse/National tour that came through Sasquatch! could Weezer and Oasis be this years version?

So what other rumors are out there? I know there are several on the Sasquatch! Message Board so check those out and add to them as well.

Another rumor, probably nothing...

I noticed that Tenacious D's Papagenu (He's My Sassafras) is on the Official Sasquatch! Music Festival website media player (although I cannot get it to play). Is it possible that Jack Black and Kyle Gass are playing Sasquatch!? Or does the website moderator just love the D? What do you think?

First Sasquatch! Music Festival 2009 Post!!!

Happy New Year Everyone! I finally got my first solid rumor for Sasquatch! '09 and that is that the Kings of Leon will be playing. I read it on the Facebook page for Sasquatch!, which Uli stated that the End (radio station KNDD 107.7) announced that Kings of Leon would be playing. I wrote Harms (radio DJ Andrew Harms from The End) and this is what he had to say:

"nothing is confirmed until the "official" announcement, which is still months away however, i have heard from a couple solid places that KOL is likely hope this helps!"

-andrew harms

There you have it folks! The first rumor for Sasquatch! 2009. Hopefully there will be more in the near future. Until then take care and keep your ear to the ground for more info!
