Sasquatch Music Festival Looking Damn Good

Its times like these, when I wished I lived in the mountains in the northwest.

The Sasquatch Music Festival has just announced an amazing lineup of a variety of bands, to play the Memorial Day Weekend of May 23-25 at the breath-taking Gorge Amphitheater in Quincy, Washington.

The festival has come a long way in its short life, and while the artist lineups have always been good, this year they have gone above and beyond, thanks to Bonnaroo raising the bar.

Headliners for the festival include Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Ben Harper & Relentless 7 and Kings of Leon.

They should actually just change the name of this festival to "Bonnaroo Northwest" because both festivals currently feature fifteen of the same bands.

Some other great artists at Sasquatch (that aren't at Roo) include Kings of Leon, Fleet Foxes, Silversun Pickups, Explosions in the Sky, Gogol Bordello, Doves, M83, the Gaslight Anthem, Deadmau5, Sun Kil Moon, Shearwater, Passion Pit and Black Moth Super Rainbow.
