Can you have too much of a good thing? Yes. Thankfully, Sasquatch! Music Festival has once again downsized to a three-day event for 2017 (spending four days at the Gorge just turns into a slog at some point).
Two hottest independent hip-hop superstars—the boisterous Chance the Rapper and the enigmatic Frank Ocean—headline the festivities alongside genre-blurring rap-rock duo Twenty One Pilots. The Sasquatch! 2017 lineup also features big-name acts like MGMT, the Head and the Heart, the Shins, Mac Miller, and Phantogram. Local flavor comes from artists like Car Seat Headrest, Manatee Commune, Courtney Marie Andrews, Porter Ray, and more. The comedy offerings include Portlandia's Fred Armisen, Saturday Night Live's Sasheer Zamata, and standup comics Beth Stelling and Nate Bargatze. More acts will be announced in the coming months.
Three-day passes for Sasquatch! Music Festival 2017 go on sale for $295 this Saturday, January 28 at 10am via Ticketmaster. (VIP tickets are also available for $295–$2,000.) Gorge camping is sold separately, and ranges from $100 to $5,000.
