As of now we haven't confirmed Sasquatch or Bonnaroo. If you want to check back in a few weeks, I will let you know.
Ah that's his way of saying "can't say yes as of now". I want to say that Santigold will be at Roo, but I don't have a source; I just happen to know she's touring with RHCP & if they're at Roo most likely she will be too.
Ha... Alex Young from COS is questioning the ethics of these artist confirmations. Wah.
Where at? Even if he disagrees, you'd think he'd use the info for his site. If anything, they should've at least updated today with the Sasquatch leak from the fest's main site. COS is supposed to be the festival hub of the internet, but are falling way behind right now. I know a lot of you guys have problems with them or mock them, but I think COS is a great resource and I read them every day. It'll be interesting to see what he said. I don't see anything unethical in posing as a fan (which we are) trying to find out about acts playing. It's all in service of getting excited for the festival. I mean, I bought my Roo and Sasquatch tickets two months ago and think about them every day. It's not as if we're coming from a malicious angle or trying to hurt the fest or artists. Plus they do cite insider as a source haha, so I don't know where his ethics start and end.

Hey guys, quit bitching on Alex and/or CoS.
I don't get why everyone is so negative about them. They get their rumors from boards as Inforoo, so what? I think that's good research. They are there to list rumors they find, not to go ask everyone.
They used to be the first one to know about rumors/confirmations but they grew a lot and now it's impossible. So they find rumors/confirmations here on Inforoo. We all think they don't do shit, but there are a lot of people who are not on forums and have not the time to go googling around and email people. That's why CoS lists rumors. To make it easier.
Do we rather have 5000 more people coming on Inforoo to bitch on us?
I'm with you. I think COS is a fantastic site and it helps me a lot with figuring out what fests I want to do and getting me excited for them. I'm just curious about what he said about the ethics of this, if he actually said anything at all. They have to cull info on a ton of fests and try stay on top of it all, which must be tons of work. They're smart to use our legwork, and they generally cite their evidence (including us). I never did understand all the hate for them around here. They provide a great service.
He replied in the Bonnaroo comments on COS.... "It's not a matter of getting on the ball. EMA may very well be playing. We just aren't going to use second-hand sourced emails as confirmation. Not to mention its not super ethical."
Keep up the good work. He's just butthurt cause he doesn't have the imagination & patience to do it.
