A few weeks back news came down that the July weekend of the Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge had been cancelled.

“The Sasquatch! community has spoken. They continue to support the traditional Memorial Day Weekend event with great enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the second weekend was not embraced. We felt it was better to cancel the new event now and give everyone time to make alternative plans for the Fourth of July weekend. Going forward, Sasquatch! Music Festival will be at the Gorge Amphitheatre on the weekend the fans want: Memorial Day Weekend only,” said Jeff Trisler, President of Live Nation Seattle.

This is sad news, but it sounds like it was the right move. The good news is that several of the local artists that were set to play the July weekend have been moved to play the festival’s traditional Memorial Day weekend in May.

A list of those artists is below:

Sandrider

Sol

Night Beats

Chastity Belt

Dude York

Shelby Earl

Kithkin

Iska Dhaaf

Pollens
