Sasquatch! loaded with local talent

Last night the 2016 Sasquatch! Music Festival lineup was revealed at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle, as has become tradition. Charles Bradley &His Extraordinaires headlined the party with secret guest M. Ward. So yeah, they are of course on the lineup.

In the 15th year of the festival, the lineup as a whole is solid boasting headliners and major artists such as The Cure, Florence &The Machine, Disclosure, A$AP Rocky, Grimes, Major Lazer, Sufjan Stevens, Leon Bridges and more. I guess we will just have to keep waiting for that Seattle LCD Sound System date to be announced.

The one thing that catches the eye when looking at the 2016 Sasquatch! lineup is how loaded up with local talent it is. Congratulations to Everett’s own Fauna Shade on their first invitation to the Gorge. Also congratulations to Thunderpussy and Brothers From Another who have both been invited back for their second consecutive Sasquatch! and will be playing the main stage.

Below is a list of local bands who will be at Sasquatch! this Memorial Day Weekend:
