The Pacific Northwest’s biggest summer kickoff party, Sasquatch! Music Festival, released its 2018 lineup Monday. Headlined by Bon Iver, Modest Mouse, The National, and more, this year’s edition features a little something for everyone, electronic dance music fans included.
While we won’t be treated to big names like Major Lazer, Disclosure, Steve Aoki, and Flume, all of whom performing at Sasquatches past, fans will get to bear witness to some of EDM’s up-and-comers, as well as a handful of established names. Among the scheduled performers are Northwest favorites What So Not, Claude von Stroke’s Dirty Bird alter-ego Barclay Crenshaw, Tokimonsta, and Petit Biscuit. Check out the full lineup below!
Sasquatch! Music Festival returns to its spiritual home, the Gorge, over Memorial Day Weekend May 25-27th. Three-day passes go on sale next Sunday at 10am, starting at $325 (plus applicable fees). Additional ticketing, and camping, information can be found here.
Entering its 17th year, Sasquatch has been sharply criticized in recent years. Between behind-the-scenes politics, and lineups that many fans were quick to reject, the true spirit of the festival oftentimes felt lost. With this year’s lineup currently receiving a warm reception on social media, could this be the year Sasquatch regains it’s magic?
