Jack White, Bon Iver + More to Perform at 2012 Sasquatch Festival
The Shins, Tenacious D and the Pretty Lights are fellow headliners for the fest, with other big acts including the Silversun Pickups, M. Ward, Feist and Metric. The festival, held at the Gorge in George, Wash., will kick off Friday, May 25, and last throughout Memorial Day weekend, wrapping up on Monday, May 28.
In addition to an eclectic music selection, the festival also boasts top tier comedians. Among the comedy acts for this year's Sasquatch Festival are Todd Barry, John Mulaney and Nick Kroll.
We expect a pretty eclectic and large turnout for this year's festival based on the headliners alone. Bon Iver gained notoriety following the band's somewhat controversial Best New Artist Grammy win (and frontman Justin Vernon's outspoken acceptance speech). Meanwhile, Jack White has been working incessantly promoting his new solo material. White recently announced his solo tour dates and even appeared in a heavily-hyped episode of 'Saturday Night Live' with host Lindsay Lohan.
