Sasquatch! 2013: Mumford & Sons, Macklemore, The Lumineers and more
The four-day festival features more than 100 acts and comedy too
The lineup for the 2013 Sasquatch! Music Festival was announced last night and as expected it features a stellar mix of diverse headliners, buzzy blog bands, critical darlings and a few household names thrown in for good measure.
The four-day festival, which takes place Memorial Day weekend, will be headlined by Grammy-nominated folksters Mumford & Sons, white-hot hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, reunited indie favorites the Postal Service and Icelandic icons Sigur Ros. In total there are more than 105 acts that will perform during the annual festival, which has become one of the biggest music fests in the Pacific Northwest.
While the number of big names on the lineup isn't as impressive as an event like Coachella, Sasquatch!'s secret weapon has always been its location. The Gorge Amphitheatre is one of the most majestic venues in the country and it is what sets Sasquatch! apart from its peers on the destination festival circuit.
The amphithater is quite literally on a gorge along the Columbia River. It offers breathtaking scenery and some of the most spectacular sunsets you'll ever witness. As an added bonus, the Gorge has a limited capacity of around 22,000, which makes Sasquatch! a relatively intimate festival (if such a thing exists) compared to an event like Coachella which has an average daily gate of around 75,000. Check out photos of the venue here.
