Sasquatch! 2012 - A look inside a progressive festival

The Sasquatch! Festival will take place once again at the beautiful Gorge Amphitheater in Eastern Washington State over the Memorial Day Weekend. We are going to bring you an inside look to this festival that seems to showcase the bands this year that become every festivals headliner the next year.  With an eclectic mix of Rock, Folk, Americana, Indie, Jam, Psychedelia, Hip-Hop as well as unique cross-over and bluegrass acts we are going to make sure we bring the best of the best from The Gorge!  The main heavy hitters on this years lineup spread across blues-rock, to ethereal folk, and even straight up electronica.  Here are some of those headliners we will report on.
Beck, Jack White, The always Fun Tenacious D, The ever-present Feist and Bon Iver will be some of the bands we will profile.  On Beats and The Dread our sister site we will profile Pretty Lights headlining set, as well as Girl Talk's track-mix.
Some of the bands we really looking forward to see and cover other than these big names are:
Blind Pilot
of Monsters and Men
Little Dragon
Beats Antique
Blitzen Trapper
The Cave Singers
Trampled By Turtles
Deer Tick 
Alabama Shakes
Kurt Vile and
Explosions in the Sky
We hope you enjoy the day too day coverage that we bring you and if there any bands on this festivals progressive lineup that you think we'd be interested in, please reach out ans let us know.  We will take extra time to look at them.  On top of this we will also profile the vibe, the scene, food, the weather, and the amazing Comedy Lineup that they bring each year.
Thanks Phans!
