Sasquatch! Music Festival will return to the Gorge Amphitheater this year with Vince Staples, Jai Wolf, What So Not, and more!

As spring dawns upon us, it seems as though each day a new lineup drops that has us wondering how our bank accounts are ever going to make it out of festival season alive. Amidst the chaos and excitement that this time of year brings, Sasquatch! Music Festival reminded us why it’s a must-attend by dropping one of the best lineups we’ve seen thus far.

Set to take place May 25-27 at the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington, Sasquatch! not only boasts of a venue featuring breathtaking views of the Columbia River but also a lineup that appeals to fans from all genres of music. This year, the festival seems to have heard the prayers of its OG fanbase and responded with a much-needed revamp to return to its indie-rock roots.

The 2018 lineup is undoubtedly alt and rock-heavy with less effort spent attempting to appease Sasquatch!’s younger crowd. That being said, they still made an effort to include key players in the hip-hop and EDM scene, that shouldn’t be missed.

Hip-hop artists Tyler, The Creator and Vince Staples will be making an appearance, along with electro and bass artists Jai Wolf and What So Not. Regarding the aforementioned indie-rock takeover, this year’s lineup also features Bon Iver, Modest Mouse, Tune-Yards, and more of your alt favorites.

Lastly, Sasquatch! could have definitely made more of an effort to include more female headliners, but the inclusion of hip-hop powerhouse Lizzo and one of my personal favorites, Neko Case, almost makes up for it…almost. Make sure to check out the full lineup below and let us know who you’re most excited to see in the comments!

If you missed out on snagging early-bird tickets last November, don’t worry! Presale will begin February 8 at 10 am PST via Ticketmaster!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
