Sasquatch Fest & all Live Nation events on heightened security
Following the tragic suicide bombing on Monday outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England (and the 2015 Bataclan attack before that), concerns over security at live music events has been on a lot of people's minds. Sasquatch Festival, which happens Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, Washington, announced that it and "all Live Nation events are on mandatory elevated risk protocols." Specifically, no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue, except for small personal bags or purses (12" x 12" x 6" max) or clear 1 gallon bags. All bags will be subject to search. To encourage bringing no bags whatever to the fest, there will be an express "no bags" entry lane. More details in the poster above.
