We're coming up on a week away from the 2012 Sasquatch Music Festival held annually at The Gorge in central Washington and it has the makings of being a good one. With a lineup that includes the likes of Jack White, Bon Iver, Beck, The Shins, The Roots, Santigold, Shabazz Palaces, AraabMuzik, Gary Clark Jr. AND the addition of a NW Hip-Hop stage the possibilities are nearly endless. The addition of The Maine Stage will allow some of the best hip-hop acts from the NW to showcase their talents to a larger crowd. I have no doubt that it will be dope.
NW hip-hop aside, cause really it's a given that I will be camped at that stage, I am really looking forward to seeing Gary Clark Jr. (among many others) after hearing his recent collaboration with Nas on the theme song for the 2012 NFL Draft and listening to his "Bright Lights EP" (which you can cop here). Needless to say I have my schedule all filled out and ready to go. Check out the trailer video they put together or hit the website above for more Sasquatch info...
Oh and congrats to all the NW hip-hop artists invited to perform...it's gonna be a hellava show.
