The lineup for this year’s Sasquatch festival, taking place May 24-27 at the Gorge in George, Wash., is looking as heavy with big-name indie rockers as can be expected. And more than any other year in recent memory, the fest also seems to have lined up an impressive list of hip-hop acts as well.
Heading up the list of acts this year are The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, The xx, Death Grips, Grimes, Dirty Projectors, Danny Brown, Tame Impala, Youth Lagoon, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Japandroids, Built to Spill, Holy Ghost!, Matthew Dear, Toro Y Moi, Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Azealia Banks, Solange, Twin Shadow, Divine Fits, Killer Mike, El-P, Sigur Ros, Bloc Party, Andrew Bird, John Talabot, Father John Misty, Tallest Man on Earth, Devendra Banhart, P.O.S., Azari & III, Disclosure, Baauer, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Menomena, Surfer Blood, DIIV, Torche, Fang Island, Baths, Hundred Waters, Akron/Family, Suuns, Alt-J and more. Mumford and Sons are also playing. Shrug.
