Heading into its 13th year, the Sasquatch! Music Festival has announced the 2015 dates for the Memorial Day festival. Taking place over four days, the festival will now plant its flag again in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Gorge Amphitheatre between May 22nd and May 25th. Early bird passes for the festival will go on sale this Friday (November 28) at 9 a.m. PST.
The festival in 2013 included a wide cross section of music, ranging from rock, to indie to a smattering of hip hop and dance. Acts like the Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Capital Cities, Baauer and many others joined the party in George, Washington. Situated on the gorgeous grounds of The Gorge Amphitheatre, Sasquatch! is blessed with one of the most beautiful views for any music event in the United States.
The festival will return to charging for camping passes because according to the festival website, it was "proven to be inefficient" as the festival almost ran out of room when the camping pass was included in the cost of admission.
Early bird passes will go on sale for $325 this Friday. The full regular four-day price will run you $350. The festival lineup will be announced in February, so it is up to you to gamble on tickets now well ahead of the lineup announcement.
Head to the festival website for more info on camping and ticketing. Last year the festival had to cancel its planned second weekend due to low demand and it appears that the festival organizors will not be making that same mistake again this year.
Check out this video from last year that captures the view and the atmosphere of the festival. Get your friends together because a road trip may be in order off to one of the most stunning views for a venue in the United States.
