2008 Sasquatch Line-Up

Sasquatch: Mythic Creature With Great Taste in Music

The Sasquatch Music Festival, held annually at a gorgeous outdoor amphitheater in George, Washington, has just released this year's lineup, and at first glance I'm liking what I see. R.E.M. and The Cure are the big headliners, which, like Coachella where they're spotlighting Roger Waters of Pink Floyd, is in keeping with this year's trend of bringing back older bands. At least with Sasquatch I don't have to go as far back as bell bottoms; I just have to dig out my Doc Martens (or find new versions of my old Docs!).

Billboard reports that The Flaming Lips will premiere their anticipated film Christmas on Mars at Sasquatch. They'll also perform their U.F.O. Show in which the band emerges from a giant U.F.O. and then one of them finds himself in a hamster ball of some sort. I've seen these guys live, and it's super fun.

For more bands in the lineup and ticket information,

The festival is held on Memorial Day weekend, May 24-26 and tickets go on sale March 8th for $56.50 per day. The price increases two days later. Also, this is a camping event so you have to plan for that as well. More info is available here.

A good chunk of the lineup is what I would describe as "Northwesty" as many of them hail from that part of the map, including Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Built to Spill, The New Pornographers, and Kinski. In addition to those bands M.I.A., the Hives, Tegan & Sara, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and the Breeders will be there, along with Flight of the Conchords! I'd also love to check out power-bop band The Cops that I've heard a lot of good things about.

A little something for everybody, no? What do you guys think of this lineup?

I'm less than two hours away, and I never manage to make it to Sasquatch. I'm really loving this year's line-up though, so I'm definitely going to try to make it work this time!

The Gorge is the best music venue EVER. We see Dave Matthews Band there every summer. <3

As a Seattle rez, I usually go to Sasquatch, but just don't know about this line-up. Sure I love Death Cab and Blue Scholars, but they really can't beat last year: Arcade Fire, Niko Case and Bjork. I might have peaked in 2007. Boo.

Buzz - this is the most gorgeous place for a concert. It sounds like an exciting line up and everyone I know that goes to Sasquatch makes it an annual ritual. Will you be there?
