Sasquatch! Festival announces lineup

Those of you looking for something to do on Memorial Day weekend (May 26-27) could certainly do worse than treking to the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington. Beisdes the fantastic view of the Columbia River, you’ll be privvy to what’s shaping up to be a great festival.

The initial lineup for the sixth annual Sasquatch! Music Festival was released today, and it’s looking pretty good so far. Among the acts set to perform during the two-day festival are Bjork, Beastie Boys, the Arcade Fire, Manu Chao, Interpol, M.I.A., Spoon, Neko Case, The Hold Steady, Grizzly Bear and many, many more.

Tickets go on sale Saturday March 3 at 10 AM via Ticketmaster. They’re priced at $50 per day that weekend and then get bumped up to $65 thereafter.
