The Sasquatch Music Festival is one of the greatest west coast festivals around. It tends to be a lot smaller in comparison to the likes of Coachella, Lolla, SXSW, ACL, and Bonarroo but SHIT! they go all out with their artists. Not one of them suck. For srs. All the artists recruited are amazingly talented and original. Not only does the SMF bring in the major bands that everyone’s heard of, they bring in awesome underground artists that are guaranteed to please. It’s THE festival for discovering. Seeing this year’s lineup is just incredible. Fanastic. Plus, it’s just ridiculously affordable compared to other music festivals. I’m considering missing C’hella now so I can go to the Gorge and feast.

ANOTHER amazing thing to note is the NEWLY EXPANDED Comedy and Dance tent! The list includes Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job, Todd Barry, Jon Benjamin, God’s Pottery, and People’s Republic of Komedy.

Three-day passes ($154.50) and single day tickets ($56.50) will be available beginning Saturday, February 28th via
