It’s time for the 17th annual Sasquatch! Music Festival, running this Memorial Day Weekend from May 25-27. The Pacific Northwest-based camping festival takes place at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington and boasts a truly incredible and diverse lineup from top to bottom.
This year marks a return to the festival’s original form, boasting a lineup rich with emerging indie artists as well as heroes of the genre such as Bon Iver, The National, David Byrne, and Modest Mouse. Other notable acts include Tyler, The Creator, Spoon, Anderson .Paak, Grizzly Bear, TV On The Radio, Vince Staples, Neko Case, Explosions In The Sky, Slowdive, Thundercat, Wolf Parade, Perfume Genius, Noname, Margo Price, Julien Baker, Whitney, PUP, Pond, Big Thief, Japanese Breakfast, (Sandy) Alex G, Phoebe Bridgers, Chastity Belt, White Reaper, Alex Lahey, Charly Bliss, The Weather Station, Mimicking Birds…honestly, if we listed everyone on the lineup that we were stoked about, we’d just end up listing the entire thing. And look. It’s right there in the image above.
This is genuinely one of the best lineups of the year (in, obviously, one of the most outrageously beautiful locations), and there really aren’t any misses. With that in mind, we made an epic Sasquatch 2018 playlist for you to bone up on these artists, old and new. So just sit back, shuffle play, and we’ll see you at the gorge.
