Sasquatch! 2009 In Photos

Everybody loves Memorial Day weekend, but nobody loves Memorial Day weekend like those that make it to Sasquatch! As friends have returned from their treks across country, they’ve shared nothing but raves for this year’s festival, from the Gorge’s breathtaking views to this year’s fantastic lineup. Even the public indecency seems particularly magical on the Sasquatch! grounds: at Coachella all we got was a wizard penis; according to fest-vet Whitney Pastorek, the Gorge had 22,000 people applauding a couple having sex on the ridge. Top that, Bonnapalooza. We sent Chona Kasinger to capture the non-sexual goings on at this year’s party, including Jane’s Addiction, YYYs, Girl Talk, Santigold (inviting the crowd onstage, M.I.A. style), Shearwater, Animal Collective, and so many more. Enjoy.
