Sasquatch Music Festival: Why You Need To Attend This Year

The basics

Sasquatch is an annual music festival hosted by Live Nation at the Gorge Amphitheater. Every year Live Nation puts together a mix of artists of all genres and creates an easy going, free spirited atmosphere that is home to many. Experience three days of music, camping, sunshine, and leisurely strolls through the PNW’s most scenic venue. It’s also an excellent place to make new friends and discover new artists. Listed this year by Time Magazine as the #4 “Best Festival for Your Money”, Sasquatch at the Gorge Amphitheater should be on your docket.


This year Sasquatch is offering a few different ticket purchasing options, including a 4-Pack three day pass that could save you and your friends over $100 each! May 25th is coming up quickly so be sure to hit up your ride-or-die group of four, and tell them it’s never been more affordable to attend Sasquatch together.

Why should you go?

Are your musical tastes diverse and far reaching? Or perhaps they are very specific? No matter what you’re tastes are, Live Nation has put together a lineup to satisfy all. Genre’s include but are not limited to: electronic, indie, hip hop, and grunge.

Maybe you just love nature. Hey, it’s cool, we do too, and luckily the Gorge has our back. Situated in George, Washington against the crystal blue Columbia River, it plays host to breath-taking views of the canyon cliffs and rolling horizon. The Wall Street Journal even mentioned the fact that it considers the Gorge to be one of the most scenic concert locations in the world.

Is your manager constantly piling on more and more work? Do you dream about seeing an empty email inbox? Trying to manage too many projects at once? Well, its time to put in for that PTO, set your email to an “away from the office” auto-reply, and pass those projects to someone else, because you need to go to Sasquatch Music Festival and decompress for Memorial Day Weekend. The doctor’s orders for work stress? Listen to the calming vibes of TOKiMONSTA, while you lay on the grass, hands tucked behind your head, gazing upon the shimmering river below the canyon walls; you’re at the Gorge, and everything is right in the world.
