The Sasquatch! Festival is taking place over two weekends this year, Memorial Day weekend and the Fourth of July weekend at the Gorge Amphitheater in central Washington. Your traditional American holiday festivities are just gonna have to take a back seat to music-festing this year, because the (entirely different) lineups for both weekends—announced last night—are among the strongest Sasquatch has had in years.
Highlights of the May 23-25 weekend include: Outkast, the National, Haim, Die Antwoord, Chance the Rapper, Phantogram, Yelle, Panda Bear, Phosphorescent, Parquet Courts, Damien Jurado, Deafheaven, Black Joe Lewis, Liars, Lucius, the Stepkids, Little Green Cars, Cloud Control, Jonathan Wilson, Waxahatchee, Pink Mountaintops, Radiation City, La Luz, Modern Kin, Tacocat, and more,
Highlights of the July 4-6 weekend include: Kraftwerk, New Order, Frank Ocean, Royksopp & Robyn, Neutral Milk Hotel, Spoon, Broken Bells, Tegan and Sara, Rhye, the Black Angels, the Horrors, the Notwist, Dr. Dog, Kurt Vile, Talib Kweli, Action Bronson, Lee Fields, Sharon Van Etten, Courtney Barnett, Fuck Buttons, Cloud Nothings, Palma Violets, Mikal Cronin, Majical Cloudz, Death, Black Prairie, Reigning Sound, Typhoon, Phox, Ages and Ages, Chad VanGaalen, Chastity Belt, Iska Dhaaf, and more.
Click the jump for the full lineup in copy-and-pasteable text. Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 am and can be purchased through the Sasquatch site. Last year, they sold out in 90 minutes, although with two separate weekends this year, I don't expect they'll go quite so fast.
