The annual Sasquatch Music Festival is back for yet another year of great music at the Gorge in George County. For lovers of all genres of music, new and old, there are some awesome headliners in store. From the Led Zeppelin legend that is Robert Plant, to the hip-hop hopeful Kendrick Lamar, there are sure to be some artists you will be excited to see. The festival will be returning with its comedy side show, with comedians such as Doug Benson, Nick Thune and more.
The festival will be held on Memorial Day weekend at The Gorge Amphitheater from May 22 to May 25. The four day festival doesn’t come cheap, either. Revelers are looking at a four day pass for around $350, not including all the supplies and cost of camping. But if you really want to show off for a cool $5,000, you can get the GLAMPING experience, with a pre-built bungalow right near the festival, in terrace camping, and two VIP passes.
The festival is boasting nearly 100 artists this year, which means there is sure to be a few you can’t wait to see. Some of the standouts for Dance Music Northwest are The Glitch Mob, Chromeo, and The Knocks. This year is not featuring as many electronic artists as Sasquatch fielded last year, but it’s still a pretty good swath of some serious talent.
Another huge change for this year is that it will only be one weekend. Last year, the promoters of Sasquatch tried to mimic the success of Coachella and make Sasquatch a back to back weekend festival. It was a great idea in theory, but the ticket sales weren’t there to fund a two weekend festival.

What do you think of this year’s line-up? Is it worth the $350 dollars they are expecting for General Admission?
