Sasquatch! Cancels Second Weekend
You have to admire the hubris behind the plan for this year’s Sasquatch! Festival: Two different festivals, on two holiday weekends, with two completely different lineups. But it wasn’t to be. The second of the two festivals, planned for 7/4-6 in George, Washington, has been canceled. In the Sasquatch! organizers’ announcement, Live Nation Seattle president Jeff Trisler writes, “Unfortunately, the second weekend was not embraced,” which presumably means ticket sales were slow. The festival would’ve featured Soundgarden, Kraftwerk, New Order, Frank Ocean, Röyksopp & Robyn, Neutral Milk Hotel, and many others. The first of the two festivals will still come to the same location 5/23-25, and it’ll feature people like OutKast, the National, Queens Of The Stone Age, and M.I.A. Going forward, Sasquatch! will only happen on Memorial Day.
