This year's Sasquatch! Music Festival kicked off with a bang! Well ... OK, the weather wasn't exactly cooperative, as it rained on Friday and most of Monday, but that didn't stop thousands upon thousands of concertgoers from enjoying four days (May 24-27) of awesome music at the Gorge Amphitheater, one of the most beautiful venues in the country.

Among the acts on hand were Vampire Weekend, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and the the recently reunited Postal Service, who closed things out.

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready also made a surprise appearance on Monday, performing the national anthem on his Fender, a la Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. Below is a photo recap of this year's festivities.
