Seattle Music Insider is back at the Gorge for this year’s Sasquatch Music Festival, and the fest is off to a great start, featuring bands from all over, and a ton of great locals. They’ve eliminated the Narwhal Stage this year, but that means that all the locals get a bigger venue at the Yeti Stage.
A full review will come later. But for now, we’ll be updating here with photos every day. Friday’s highlights include Wolf Alice, Telekinesis, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Vince Staples, and Chet Faker, among many others.
Abby Williamson is a photographer, writer, and video blogger with a passion for live music – especially the local scene. She recently moved to Seattle after commuting from Gig Harbor for shows an average of once a week for five years, so she’s happy to not have to drive as much and photograph even more concerts!
When she’s not elbowing her way up to the front row at a show or sorting through thousands of photos of those shows, Abby also does freelance wedding photography, all the while cultivating a decent-sized following on YouTube.
Abby has contributed to several music blogs over the last five years (and she’s really excited to join the SMI team!), and has been published in at least one album booklet for the band, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. She would like people to know that while music photography and writing is a huge passion in her life – she is a fan first, photographer second.
