Sasquatch! Music Festival

Memorial Day Weekend
Since 2002, fans of independent rock music have converged on central Washington for the Sasquatch! Music Festival, a three-day outdoor music festival in May. This event, which offers a serene view of the Columbia River gorge, is a welcome change from the dirt and the grime of many outdoor concert settings. The Gorge Ampitheatre has achieved acclaimed status as one of North America's premiere outdoor venues.
The Sasquatch! lineup usually features about two dozen bands, performing on the three stages of the Gorge Ampitheatre. Bands not on the main bill perform on the Yeti Stage and the Wookie Stage. At the Sasquatch Mainstage, fans have the option of milling in the front or catching the music further back on the grassy hillside. The festival's organic approach and eco-friendly policy is bolstered by its purchase of carbon offsets.
