2010 Sasquatch Festival Lineup Announced

The lineup for the 2010 Sasquatch Festival was announced at a free show at the Crocodile February 15th. The festival's home page is swamped by traffic and won't load as of 2 a.m. Eastern time, but here are some details I've been able to get from the Twitter account of the Ear Candy music blog (and a photo of the 2010 Sasquatch poster that Ear Candy posted):

My Morning Jacket / Massive Attack / Pavement / Ween / Vampire Weekend / MGMT / The National / Band of Horses / Broken Social Scene / The xx / The New Pornographers / LCD Soundsystem / Tegan & Sara / Broken Social Scene / Passion Pit / The Hold Steady / Dirty Projectors / OK Go / Drive By Truckers / Kid Cudi / Long Winters / Minus the Bear / The Mountain Goats / Camera Obscura / Dr. Dog

Brooklyn Vegan has a more complete 2010 Sasquatch lineup here, which may or may not be completely final and accurate. Paste has what it says is the full Sasquatch lineup on its Web site. Sasquatch will issue a press release Tuesday morning, Feb. 16th.

This year's festival takes place May 29th to 31st at The Gorge in Washington State. 2010 Sasquatch tickets go on sale at 12 Noon Eastern time.

The Sasquatch Festival home page,, shows only info for the 2009 festival at this point. Let's hope it's updated soon.

Hi David,
Boy do I wish I lived closer to where the festival is happening. So very cool. I REALLY think Judy needs to lean into her camera and say "I am Sasquatch" and send it in don't you?

Karen :0)

Karen, thanks for the comment. I'd love to go to Sasquatch some year, but yes, it's far away (I said same thing about Vancouver Olympics, but now wish I was there).

Judy channeling her inner Sasquatch *would* be funny... but I wonder, would her outer zebra get jealous? Wouldn't want to stir up inter-species tension.
