I’ve written about the rumors for this year’s Sasquatch! a little bit over at Ear Candy, but really not a lot is know yet about who will be headlining and performing at the Gorge during Memorial Day weekend this year for ‘Quatch. It’s almost time for me to post my annual stab at guessing the Sasquatch! Music Festival lineup (I will post it Feb. 10, which is exactly one week before the official announcement is made), but until then allow me to share what I know about this year’s event:
It will once again be a three-day event. Either the Saturday through Monday or Friday through Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.
According to various Web sites Peter Bjorn and John as well as the Avett Brothers will be at Sasquatch! this year. Click here to see PBJ’s tour schedule, which shows they will be at Sasquatch!
Other solid guesses include: Death Cab For Cutie, Adele, Franz Ferdinand, Neko Case, AC Newman, Blitzen Trapper, Fleet Foxes, The Hold Steady, The Decemberists, Devotchka, Monotonix, Wilco, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ra Ra Riot and The Thermals
Keep in mind none of those bands have been announced as Sasquatch! performers (except PB&J) and all of those listed were either listed as a guess or are connected to a solid rumor about the festival. The acts I included as solid guesses are bands that have new records coming out this year, are buzzed about and are likely to make their rounds on the summer festival circuit. The only bands I see as being potential headliners on my list are Wilco and perhaps Death Cab For Cutie.
Who do you want to see at Sasquatch! 2009?
