Memorial Day weekend is now less than a month away! It’s almost time to pack up the car and make the drive to the Gorge for the 14th annual Sasquatch Music Festival. The weather will be hot and so is the lineup. Stacked with artists like Florence and the Machine, ASAP Rocky, Alabama Shakes, The Internet, LION BABE and so many others! We can’t wait to lounge on the hill and take in the gorgeous view while listening to killer music. If you still don’t have plans for Memorial Day Weekend, Sasquatch is the place to be.
With Memorial Day approaching, so does the festival that kicks off the Pacific Northwest festival season – Sasquatch. This year, the line up is diverse, ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Odesza to Cashmere Cat. Lots to see, listen to and enjoy! We got a little Sasquatch ‘must listen to’ list for you to get into. After the festival, check back in for full video and photo recaps. We might even throw in an interview of two..
Goldlink- “Planet Paradise”
Action Bronson- “Baby Blue ft. Chance the Rapper”
Having been off the grid for the Sasquatch Music Festival, this playlist is a day late. However, if I had posted this prior to the festival I would not have known what I know now. Black Joe Lewis, KONGOS, and the Flvr Blue are all worth listening to and did not make it on to the playlist originally. Also worth noting – Cudi still has it. One of the more fun shows on the main stage in my opinion.
Nothing even comes close to the show that Outkast put on. They hit all the songs I needed – ATLiens, Aquemini, Crumblin’ Erb, SpottieOttie, Two Dope Boys, International Players Anthem, and Hey Ya!. Sir Luscious Left Foot aka Big Boi brought the heat we have all come to expect from him and Three Stacks left me more impressed with him than I already was. Do not miss these two if they come to a city near you.
I could go one for hours about Outkast, and what happens at Sasquatch stays at Sasquatch. Get ready for some good summers jams.
It was 7th grade when Johnny T first handed me the ATLiens album. That moment was a turning point in my life. It’s been on my bucket list since then to see them play live, and it’s finally going to happen at the Sasquatch Music Festival this summer. Cochella is in wrapping up but the videos and images from all the basic bitches (that’s a funny pop culture reference – if you didn’t get it you might be one, just saying) of this dynamic duo is getting me all sorts of pumped up for May. I also recently made an acquaintance with someone who hadn’t ever heard Outkast before, besides Hey Ya!. This was obviously unacceptable so I whipped up a playlist of my top Outkast songs. I narrowed it down as much as I could and I hope you enjoy. Welcome to the lion’s den.
