Here is the just-announced lineup for this year’s annual Sasquatch Music Festival, which combines the natural beauty of Washington’s The Gorge with all-day music, comedy, and the sideshow of watching normally sedentary music bloggers being forced to traverse a mountain. This year’s 10th anniversary celebration adds a fourth day (taking place May 27 through May 30) and features a few bands who haven’t been seen in a while, namely headliner Foo Fighters and the recently reunited Archers Of Loaf, Guided By Voices, and Death From Above 1979.
In addition you get a bunch of Sasquatch all-stars—Wilco, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips (who will perform The Soft Bulletin in its entirety), The Decemberists, and Bright Eyes—as well as Iron And Wine, Robyn, Deerhunter, Yeasayer, Beach House, Chromeo, Local Natives, Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings, Matt And Kim, Sleigh Bells, MSTRKRFT, !!!, Flying Lotus, Against Me, Major Lazer, The Thermals, Surfer Blood, Tokyo Police Club, Flogging Molly, Wolf Parade, CSS, Jenny And Johnny, The Antlers, Das Racist, Wye Oak, Smith Westerns, Rival Schools, and The Bronx. There’s not much on the comedy side yet, but what’s there is already pretty intriguing: a live performance from cult Canadian group Trailer Park Boys. The official website is still stuck on the 2010 lineup right now, but four-day passes for 2011 are already on sale.
