Says the PR

On the heels of a highly successful, critically acclaimed sold-out 2012 festival, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2013 lineup, which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 24-27 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The
, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.

That's a music festival alright...

Posted by Hubert Snodgrass | February 5, 2013 2:02 AM

You would have to pay me to go to this thing. A lot!

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 2:38 AM

thank you for typing, as I really wanted a list (to cut through the dreck).
I also like your order better than whatever is going on with this page -- for example, Dirty Projectors, Tame Impala, and Twin Shadow on line 25!? (softball for the commentariat, this one. but seriously, looks more compelling as you scroll -- and I know this is the last place to post such a Concerned Reader Observation) ◔_◔

Posted by Garamondo | February 5, 2013 2:58 AM

man, there are some terrible headliners.

Posted by trolldoll | February 5, 2013 3:10 AM

Thanks for your post! Good job!kit

Posted by lisa | February 5, 2013 4:14 AM

Looks like a 'OFF' year, except for the fact that Built To Spill is on there.

Mumford as Headliner = Fail.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 4:20 AM

Headliners are pretty sucky, but it's an diverse line up overall.

No Comment.

Better than Coachella & Gov Ball.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 7:12 AM

who exactly is headlining?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 7:27 AM

Excellent poster design.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 7:33 AM

should be renamed A Whole Lot of Junk Festival!

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 7:55 AM

No Bow Wow Wow? WTF?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 7:56 AM

"Excellent poster design."

Yeah, I really like how the colors are so faded so you can barely read any of the names on it

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 8:51 AM

They really fucked it up this time. Didn't they, my dear?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 8:52 AM

There are no headliners, and that's OK.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 9:14 AM

Pitchfork is still better and they only announced 3 bands

mumford & sons????really?????

Bow Wow Wow @ Brighton Bar!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope the crowd pushes Mumford into the Gorge.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 10:37 AM

Actually, once you get past Mumford & Sons, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Vampire Weekend it's actually a good lineup. Sigur Rios, Primus, the XX, Built to Spill, Death Grips, Ab-Soul, some nice names on there.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 10:50 AM

Austin Psych Fest is looking like the best festival of 2013

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 10:51 AM

Memorial Day Weekend. Maybe the promoters are memorializing god awful music?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 11:00 AM

Mumford and Sons should be listed with the comedy performers

bart man jumped over the gorge on his skateboard

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 11:18 AM

Im really excited about Dirty, but did they really have to book Projectors?

Posted by hubert snodgrass | February 5, 2013 12:00 PM

how come there are no headliners at this festival?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 12:48 PM

Ghost will most certainly eat Mumford and however many sons he has.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 1:04 PM

I will certainly eat the hummus and as many pita triangles the platter has.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 1:21 PM

This is actually the best line-up they have done since 2010. I don't know if this is enough to get me out to the gorge three years in a row. The headliners SUCK, but that's ok. Sasquatch is more about the middle bands than the headliners anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 1:49 PM

These festivals continue to get worse and worse. Way too many bands yet hardy any really good bands. Quantity over quality.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 2:06 PM

I can't believe Vampire Weekend are still around. What an awful band. And Mumford & Sons are the top band at this thing? Man I feel sorry for the kids today.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 2:38 PM

^ frat guys need soundtracks to rape to. Don't begrudge them their soundtracks.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 2:42 PM

Best festival there is -- big enough that there are big names who play, small enough that it's easy and manageable. Oh and it's at the Gorge too. if you haven't been before, you should.

And i know Mumford is too popular for all you uber hipsters, but they put on a great show and will be awesome at the gorge.

Posted by Matt | February 5, 2013 3:44 PM

Nothing's going to beat 'talpa 2013! I'm going to 'talpa!

Posted by 'talpa goer | February 5, 2013 10:48 PM

Why the fuck do Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have top billing on this? Why would they do that? That's not fucking awesome.

Should be called hipster heaven. What a garbage line up. Id kill myself before you could pay me to go to this shit.
