Once New Year’s Eve comes and goes, and the holiday season ends, I always look forward to mid-January for the exciting Sasquatch! Music Festival Launch Party at the Neptune Theatre in Seattle.
The bands playing the launch party are typically also part of the lineup, and it is always a great show to enjoy while anticipation builds through the night for the big lineup reveal.
Well, this year Adam Zacks and the folks at Live Nation decided to switch things up a bit. There will be no lineup announcement show for the 2017 Sasquatch! Music Festival.
Instead, there is an interactive Sasquatch! experience waiting for you.
This week all you can do on the website is look at a gorgeous view from the lawn at The Gorge (try “winter view” for sure) and seek out some icons around the property to enter a VIP ticket giveaway contest.
Starting Monday, Jan. 16 you will be able to search for puzzle pieces and upon solving the puzzle you can view the lineup announcement video. Of course the content of that video will almost certainly be posted on every music blog as soon as it becomes available next Monday.
So, that is basically a long way of saying that we will all know the lineup for the 2017 Sasquatch! Music Festival by Jan. 16.
Of course it was already announced late last year that Frank Ocean will be headlining, but who else? My money is on Bon Iver, Radiohead, and Childish Gambino.
