This year, Washington state's Sasquatch Festival takes a tip from Coachella and spans two weekends - except, those two weekends have different lineups, making your ticket-buying decision all that more impossible. Weekend one, Memorial Day weekend, features OutKast, M.I.A., the National, and Panda Bear, and some impressive acts in the small print, like Deafheaven, Parquet Courts, Liars, Austra, La Luz, and TacocaT.
But weekend two is just as awesome (if not more awesome) - July 4th weekend, you can catch Neutral Milk Hotel and Frank Ocean headlining (omgomgomg new album?!), alongside Spoon, New Order, Rhye, Dr. Dog, Courtney Barnett, and Cloud Nothings. Added bonus: the local Washington acts playing weekend two are awesome - Night Beats, Chastity Belt, Dude York, Kithkin, and Pollens. Which weekend will you choose?
