Sasquatch! Music Festival returns to the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington this Memorial Day Weekend!
Sasquatch! Music Festival returns this May 26 – 28 for a weekend of great music and even better scenery. Lineup aside, the venue itself is enough reason for many to make the trip to Washington in order to experience the Gorge Amphitheater’s killer views of the Columbia River and Gorge Canyon. Known for its eclectic range of musical genres and artists, Sasquatch! was founded by Adam Zacks in 2002 and was built based on his notion that “there was an untapped demand for a certain kind of festival that catered to the eclectic tastes of music enthusiasts.” Historically, the lineup has featured indie-rock, electronic and rap music alike and this year doesn’t disappoint.
The 2017 lineup features big name artists like The Shins, Chance The Rapper and MGMT, along with Big Gigantic, Kaytranda and more. Since the nearest town is about 16 miles away from the venue, Sasquatch! is a camping-based event and although the amphitheater is only open Friday-Sunday, the camping grounds will be open as of 1 PM Thursday to those with a valid festival wristband. So what are you waiting for? Dig up that tent I know you have buried somewhere in your garage and rally your friends because the ultimate Memorial Day Weekend is less than 20 days away!
