Sasquatch! Music Festival 2018 Lineup Revealed

David Byrne, Tyler, the Creator, Bon Iver, The National, and Modest Mouse headline the Gorge.

The third line from the bottom on the Sasquatch! Music Festival 2018 poster features three acts that released 2017 albums that I’d rank among the year’s top 15 (Phoebe Bridgers, Charly Bliss, and Alex Lahey). It’s a telling indication that the lineup for this year’s Memorial Day weekend festival at the Gorge is pretty darn good.

After an off year in 2017, Sasquatch! seems to be returning to its indie (or indie-ish) rock roots. Rock staples at the top of the bill include Modest Mouse, David Byrne, The National, Bon Iver, Spoon, Neko Case, Explosions in the Sky, and TV on the Radio. Vince Staples, Tyler, the Creator, and Lizzo highlight the hip-hop offerings. The bill features a plethora of mid-tier standouts like Japandroids, Julien Baker, Tune-Yards, Girlpool, Big Thief, Japanese Breakfast, Jeff Rosenstock, and the aforementioned trio of Pheobe Bridgers, Charly Bliss, and Alex Lahey. Some of Seattle’s best will also make the trek out east: Perfume Genius, Pedro the Lion, Chastity Belt, Pickwick, Thunderpussy, and more. Additional acts will be announced in the coming months, but there’s more than enough here to make a journey to the Gorge worthwhile.

Three day passes for Sasquatch! Festival 2018 go on sale this Sat., Feb. 10 at 10 a.m via Ticketmaster. Weekend passes cost $325. (Single day tickets will only be made available if the passes aren’t selling.) Gorge camping is sold separately for $60–$499.
