A$AP Rocky at Sasquatch 2016

Disclosure at Sasquatch 2016A$AP Rocky / Disclosure

A$AP Rocky was more than half-an-hour late to his set at the main stage, where his name was plastered on a neon sign, harshly juxtaposing the gorge at dusk behind it. Rocky brought a DJ and two openers for his festival show before he stepped foot on stage, but on the opposite end of the festival grounds, Yeasayer went without the pomp and circumstance and modestly walked on stage and began to play. Singer Chris Keating barked his way through “2080” among the lit-up Yeasayer set decor of cardboard stand-ups of historical figures, surgically linked with circuit boards. During “Sunrise,” Keating looked like he was mocking the sentimental lyrics when he sang, “I wanna give you the sunrise!” and immediately turned his head and spat violently. There’s some savage in them yet. – [Daily Emerald]

The 2016 Sasquatch festival took place in Gorge, Washington over Memorial Day Weekend. Friday kicked off the four-day party with sets from Disclosure, A$AP Rocky, Disclosure, Yeasayer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, as well as Vince Staples and Andra Day (both BV picks for acts to see) and more.
