Adam Zacks and Live Nation are excited to announce stellar additions to this year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre in Eastern Washington. The festival, in its seventh and best year yet, has evolved from a unique homegrown and laid back fest into a full blown three day extravaganza, complete with camp-outs, canyons, sunsets, three stages and this year (for the first time) a comedy tent. Already the official opener to summer for music fans, The Sasquatch! Music Festival is becoming a certified monster of a musical event: this year features another exciting and diverse lineup for the musically adventurous, and ups the ante on an event already hailed for its independent spirit.
