A wildfire about three miles from Gorge, Washington on Sunday (5/29) didn’t affect day 3 of Sasquatch 2016, but high winds did. Houndmouth and Saint Motel‘s sets were canceled as was Leon Bridges‘ but he ended up making the best of it, playing an impromptu acoustic set on a pathway on The Hill.

Still, Sunday was host to some of the weekend’s most memorable performances, including headliners The Cure who played a one-hour, 45 minute set (short for them on this tour) packed with classics. There were also sets from Savages, Alabama Shakes, Mac DeMarco, Bully, Yo La Tengo and more.

Tacocat, whose noon opening set on the main Sasquatch stage was moved to later in the day in the El Chupacabra tent, also played the Toyota Music Den which was hosted by BrooklynVegan, SPIN, Vibe and Stereogum. Billy Jones MC’d and DJ’d between intimate performances by La Luz, Speedy Ortiz, Summer Cannibals, and more.
