This Memorial Day weekend Vancity Buzz will be bringing you coverage from the Gorge Amphitheatre in eastern Washington at the 12th annual Sasquatch Music Festival. This year’s must-hit summer festival draws an eclectic range of musicians and comedians to its five stages including Mumford and Sons, Sigur Ros, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the Lumineers, and the Postal Service. The great thing about having a major music festival nearby is a lot of the bands will continue their tour through Vancouver. You can be assured that if a band is on the Sasquatch lineup, it is worth spending your dollars on to see live in an intimate local venue. Here’s a list of a few notable performances in Vancouver before and after Sasquatch:
