In January, Sasquatch! Music Festival announced a stacked lineup for their annual summer jam, scheduled to take place at the Gorge Amphitheater in Quincy, Washington on Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-30). The festival's 15th year will include acts like The Cure, Sufjan Stevens, M83, Grimes, Florence + the Machine, Disclosure, Major Lazer and A$AP Rocky at the top of the bill, and tickets to the festival have been going quickly.
Although tickets to Sasquatch! Music Festival have yet to sell out on the primary market, fans are encouraged to act fast, as tickets have sold out in prior years. It is likely that Sasquatch! will fall in line with a handful of other festivals that have sold out entirely, including Electric Forest, Coachella and Ultra Miami.

Currently, a face value 4-day pass to Sasquatch! is priced at $350. On the resale market, 4-day passes are averaging $510, with the cheapest pass going for $459, according to data provided by TiqIQ. Last year, passes on the resale market averaged $301, with single-day passes going for just $41. In 2014, passes averaged $470, with the cheapest pass priced at $254, and in 2013, passes on the resale market averaged a whopping $1030, with the cheapest pass going for $970. The reason for the huge spike in price in 2013 was that the festival was entirely sold out. If tickets continue to sell this year, fans should expect similar price rates in 2016.
Other acts scheduled to perform at the 2016 event includes Alabama Shakes, Chet Faker, Leon Bridges, Jamie xx, Purity Ring, Tycho, Allen Stone, Mac Demarco, Lord Huron, Kurt Vile and Big Grams (Big Boi + Phantogram). Sasquatch! sets itself apart from other festivals with its unique festival location, The Gorge Amphitheatre.
The outdoor venue is a nine time winner of Pollstar Magazine's Best Outdoor Music Venue Award, and was the recipient of the Billboard Touring Award for Best Amphitheatre in 2015, and is considered one of the most scenic concert locations in the world.
