Sasquatch Music Festival 2018 | FRIDAY IN PHOTOS

This year’s Sasquatch Music Festival was a stark contrast to last year’s Top 40-heavy tunes, with dad-rock headliners like Modest Mouse, The National, David Byrne, and Bon Iver. Stay tuned for a full recap, but for now here’s a gallery from the first day, featuring our ol’ faves Thunderpussy, as well as some new faves – including but not limited to Hurray for the Riff Raff, Pond, Tash Sultana, and Gang of Youths.

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.
