Like previous years, Sasquatch offers an eclectic blend of musical styles and genres. Of course there is no shortage of artists with street cred and star power. Some of the more notable acts that will grace the various Sasquatch stages are: Jack White, Beck, Tenacious D, Silversun Pickups, The Roots, Bon Iver and The Shins.

A few or the artists that we will be checking out this weekend are: Feist, St.Vincent,  Metric, Alabama Shakes, Spiritualized and The Civil Wars.
