Sasquatch! 2012 Announced, Full Lineup Revealed

We’re far from the minority in stating this year’s just announced Sasquatch! lineup is the best we’ve seen in years. If you’re one who likes a bit of a build up, watch the festival’s official video below.

Sasquatch! Music Festival 2012 Lineup Announcement from Sasquatch Festival on Vimeo.

At last night’s launch party, we were lucky enough to see the announcement in real-time and take in the reaction from the crowd of fellow music bloggers, industry types, college students and music and/or festival enthusiasts. Based on what we saw on screen (the video above) and the public outcry, its fair to see this Memorial Day at the Gorge may very well rank amongst the very best yet.

Look for our specific reactions and recommendations in the coming days, weeks and months. In the meantime, jump to the part you’re most excited about and check out the full lineup below. Initial, first-glance favorites in bold.
