2014 Sasquatch! Fest Expnding to Include Second Weekend With Different Line-ups
After a highly successful 2013 festival that sold out in a record 90 minutes, the Sasquatch! Music Festival is set to expand to a second holiday weekend in 2014.
The festival will run May 23-25 (Memorial Day Weekend) and July 4-6 (Fourth of July Weekend) with two completely different lineups at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.
Festival creator Adam Zacks founded Sasquatch! in 2002 with the aim of building an event that catered to the eclectic tastes of voracious music enthusiasts. Personally programming the lineups for each Sasquatch! Festival, Zacks handpicks a diverse array of performers with a tradition of presenting critically acclaimed emerging artists alongside established headliners. Previous lineups have spanned a broad spectrum of genres with an independent spirit including: The Arcade Fire, Beastie Boys, The Black Keys, Coldplay, The Cure, Foo Fighters, Beck, Jack White, Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, Nine Inch Nails, Pixies, R.E.M., Wilco and an equally impressive list of top comedy alumni like Flight of the Conchords, Mike Birbiglia, Nick Offerman, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Tenacious D, and Zach Galifianakis.
