Sasquatch! 2008 looks good. I’d go just to catch the Dead Confederate kids on the Festival stage. Sonic Itch Music just might make the trip this year.
THE 2008 SASQUATCH! MUSIC FESTIVAL
Memorial Day Weekend | The Gorge, George, WA
The 2008 Sasquatch! Music Festival, now in its seventh and best year yet, will expand to
three days and take place Memorial Day Weekend at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre.
Already the official opener to summer for music fans, Sasquatch! is becoming a
certified monster of a musical event: this year features another exciting and diverse line-up for the
musically adventurous, and ups the ante on an event already hailed for its independent spirit.
Over the years Sasquatch! Music Festival has evolved from a unique homegrown and laid back fest
into a full blown three day extravaganza, complete with camp-outs, canyons, sunsets and three stages,
and this year (for the first time) a comedy tent. .
