Sasquatch! ... And Other Awesome Summer Music Festivals
Sasquatch announces its 2013 lineup, reminding us to watch for other festivals on the Northwest's musical horizon.
A glimmer of summer brightened an otherwise dreary winter Tuesday, when the Sasquatch! Festival (May 24–27) revealed its 2013 lineup. Some of our favorites among the 117 acts: Mumford & Sons, Sigur Ros, Menomena, Built to Spill, Tame Impala, The Postal Service, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Grimes, Dirty Projectors, and funny man Nick Offerman. Of course, the announcement also reminded us that in a few short weeks, the Northwest will enter a veritable music festival smorgasbord. Get ready to eat it up.
