Sasquatch at Sasquatch! Photo by Kyle Johnson

As usual the annual Sasquatch! Music Festival was a monster of a music fest. And since four days of music festival coverage at the Gorge can be as much of a beast to consume as it is to produce we listed all of our exhaustive coverage in one single post for your clicking and reading pleasure. So go ahead and get your weekend off to a good start  by digging in and revisiting the four days of fun in the sun out in Eastern Washington that was Sasquatch!

  • The first day of Sasquatch! was captured in megapixel form by Christopher Nelson. Check out his photos of Mark Lanegan, Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Santigold and more by clicking over here.
  • Day number two saw our dutiful scribe Brent Stecker get blown away by Alabama Shakes and Jack White. He was also impressed by Maine stage sets from Grynch and Sol. His words can be found here and Christopher Nelson’s images of The Civil Wars, The Shins, Metric, Jack White and lots of others who took the stage on day 2 are over here.
  • Also on the second day Kyle Johnson joined the photo crew and got some great shots of Charles Bradley,  Childish Gambino, The Roots and many others. Here are his photos from day two.
  • Sasquatch! showed no signs of slowing down on its third day with strummy rock and plenty of bands featuring heavy use of keyboards in the mix. Brent wrote that Bon Iver blended the best of both those worlds while Wild Flag and The Head and the Heart were also highlights. There are lots of great photos from day numero tres from Kyle over here and Christopher’s shots are over here (I especially dig his Reignwolf shots).
  • The festival came to a close with sets by Tenacious D and Beck and we posted video of when The D joined Beck on stage. We also posted some great photos of Shabazz Palaces, fun, Joy Formidable, Grouplove, Spirtualized and others.
  • In case you couldn’t tell, visuals were a big part of this year’s Sasquatch! coverage, so mid-week we selected the 20 best images from the festival and posted them here.
  • Finally, our coverage was capped with some analysis of the festival as seen from the perspective of someone who decided not to attend this year’s Sasquatch! (that’d be me, btw).
