sasquatch 2010

the lineup for the 2010 sasquatch festival was announced last night and as usual, it’s quite impressive. sasquatch is set to take place may 29th – 31st and will again be held at the gorge amphitheater in george, wa. some of the headliners include pavement, massive attack, mgmt, and vampire weekend.

this lineup definitely rivals coachella and that fact that it doesn’t take place in a sweaty dust bowl is big thumbs up. both festivals have outstanding lineups this year, but there are a few artists (freelance whales, telekinesis, nurses, tegan & sara) slated to perform at sasquatch only, that makes this festival the one i would rather attend (as well as the heat factor).

tickets go on sale tomorrow (feb 17) at noon EST. unfortunately, for a southern california resident with a limited cash flow, coachella is much more economical.
