What joy we festival lovers received today! Aye, the line-ups for two of the best festivals of the summer, Sasquatch and Primavera Sound, were released, and are they ever a gift from the festival deities on high. Both are absolutely stuffed with bands that we love and have been geeking out over for months if not years.
Sasquatch, one of our favorite line-ups from last year as well, boasts artists that will sound breathtaking in the Gorge. The dreams you have about seeing Bon Iver under the stars and surrounded by landscapes as picturesque as his music can finally come true — as can your dreams of seeing Spiritualized and Tenacious D all in one weekend. Beck and Jack White are sharing headlining duties with Bon Iver, so all nights will end gloriously.
Primavera Sound, of course, is getting some of the most diverse and amazing artists in the world to gather in Barcelona — because who doesn’t want to gather in Barcelona? Bjork, Dirty Three, Refused, Wilco, Jeff Mangum, The xx, and Beirut are only some of the acts that will be filling the city with their awesome sounds.
