Another Festival We'd Rather Go To: Long Beach's Avi Buffalo Added to Sasquatch!

Another Festival We'd Rather Go To: Long Beach's Avi Buffalo Added to Sasquatch!

The line-up for this year's Sasquatch was just announced and hey, turns out it's another festival line-up we'd much rather go see than Coachella.

Sasquatch, which is famously held at the Gorge in Washington (two hours outside of Seattle), will be held over Memorial Day weekend, May 29-30.

The line-up so far features some favorites like My Morning Jacket, Massive Attack, Band of Horses, the XX, New Pornographers, Kid Cudi, No Age, Girls, Pavement, the Fruit Bats and more.

The festival also boasts another major plus over Coachella: It's cheaper. Like, way cheaper. Like, $170 for three-day passes. Whereas Coachella is gouging us with $265 three-day passes.  

Upcoming Events

Also awesome: Long Beach locals Avi Buffalo are on the line-up! (Check out the photos from their performance with the Soft Pack at Fingerprints in January.)

Besides, why don't we get a fuzzy Coachella mascot in a viking hat?

The full line-up (well, so far) after the jump.
