If you’re one of the lucky people going, Winnie’s got some tips on making the best of Sasquatch weekend courtesy of guest contributor, and all access correspondent Dolly Compton!
- Pack a flask. They check bags but that’s it. Beers are $10 inside.
- Wear a watch and print your own schedule.
- Bring earplugs – your friends are going to want to dance next to the speakers!
- Don’t wear sandals. Having your feet stepped on sucks. The desert is dusty!
- Bring a jacket in a backpack. It gets COLD at night.
- Outside food is allowed in, so bring chips, trail mix and sammiches for dinner.
- Sealed water bottles are allowed in. There is a water refill station.
Don’t forget to bring:
- a towel
- sunglasses so no one sees your drug eyes
Sasquatch Survival Tips:
- Pace yourself. There is no re-entry!
- Set up a base camp blanket on the hill as a meeting point
- Have a girl go first when throwin’ bows to the front.
- Bring your cell phone. The best coverage is at the ridge above the main stage.
- If you queue up 30 min before the main stage acts, they let a select number of the crowd into the inner sanctum – closest to the stage and in front of the barriers – where there’s lots of room for dancing!
Make sure to follow Dolly Compton on Twitter and stay up on who ruled and who stunk at this year’s Sasquatch Festival. She’ll have more coverage, photos, and reviews from the 2011 Sasquatch Festival so stay tuned! xo

What’s up with all the dubstep haters? I’m coming across a lot people who are unnecessarily aggro towards it and it’s odd.
Is it just too much of a departure from the current music climate of bad electro remixes and bedroom mashes from trust fund kids getting their parents to buy them Ableton and Serato? Could it be that a shift towards dubstep is too much to handle for those who are completely invested in a genre that is probably having difficulty finding new ways to be inventive? Or does it just seem too weird?
I don’t know the answer, but it’s probably a combination of things.
Sure, I can appreciate that dubstep is dark and spooky (believe me, Caspa and Rusko give me nightmares sometimes too), but you’re being naive if you aren’t recognizing the influence dubstep is having on next level music production on both indie and pop records. Everything from Rihanna, Major Lazer, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga… the list goes on and on.
Sooooo, haters… don’t be afraid of the unknown. You know those weird new sounds you’re hearing on that track you like? Yeah, those ones. It came from dubstep.
With the weather turning colder lately, it’s time to break out the thick knit sweaters and the fuzzy blankets.
It’s also that time of year when I begin listening to some darker, smoky jams too… here are some tracks I’ve had on high rotation while sporting my customized Snuggie.
Turn it up, it’s Friday. Let’s gooooooooo!
