Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge, 2011

Events — By Michelle Schusterman on May 16, 2011 at 4:18 am

Held at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington along the Columbia River Gorge, the Sasquatch Music Festival combines two of Seattle’s greatest assets: gorgeous scenery on a summer day and indie music.

This year the festival will be held Memorial Day weekend, May 27th through the 30th and features a line-up that includes Death Cab for Cutie, Foo Fighters, The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, the Seattle Rock Orchestra and Flogging Molly.

Sasquatch enforces a pretty strict no-reentry policy, so take heed. If the spring weather Seattle has been experiencing so far is any indication, sunscreen and a hat won’t be necessary (well, the hat might keep your new ‘do dry in the downpour). But bring them, along with a light jacket for the evening, just to be safe. Alcohol and recording equipment is prohibited at the Gorge.

Varying ticket packages are available, but all tickets are all-inclusive, and food and beverage stands will be set up throughout the event.
