One the Pacific Northwest’s most popular music festival’s is sadly calling it quits after 17 years. The Sasquatch Music Festival started in 2002 with an emphasis on indie rock and grew to welcome more well-known names and acts such as Modest Mouse, Nine Inch Nails, and the Flaming Lips. Last year the most anticipated artist to join the line up in the years the festival, Frank Ocean, unfortunately, pulled out last minute that became a let down for many.
“Today we take a bow and bid fond farewell to Sasquatch! I will no longer be producing the Festival, nor will it take place in 2019,” founder Adam Zacks announced in an email. “17 years is a long time to do anything. The Beatles lasted a mere 8 years, a fact so astonishing it is difficult to believe. While we didn’t accomplish anything as indelible as “Hey Jude,” the Festival left a lasting mark and proudly represented an independent spirit.”
This year’s line up included Vince Staples ,Tyler, The Creator, Thundercat, Anderson . Paak and more.
