This past Memorial day weekend, the Gorge Amphitheater in Quincy, Washington played host to the biggest annual music festival in the Pacific Northwest, namely Sasquatch, which was celebrating its 10th anniversary. Portland Monthly was lucky enough to snag some press passes from the nice folks at Live Nation (Thanks Ashley and Brian!) which, among other things, meant we didn’t have to use a honeybucket once all weekend. It also meant that we were able to take some awesome pictures for you, our beloved readers, so please sit back, have your morning coffee and scone and watch this slideshow of the bands we saw and the weird people in costume we took sneaky photos of.

Were you at the Gorge this weekend? What bands rocked your socks off? Were you in the pit when The Flaming Lips threw Sasquatch birthday cake into the audience? How many of those pricey-yet-delicious frozen Strawberry Daiquiris served in tall plastic guitar cups did you have? Share your comments below!
