I wish that I could be there since Washington is one of the best places ever and the backdrop of the gorge looks amazing!! Pavement, Massive Attack, Ween (highly suggested if you’ve never seen them live!), Public Enemy and LCD Soundsystem make this completely worth it. Other stand outs are Midlake, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Miike Snow and Mayer Hawthorne. I have to try and finagle some time out of my day job to attend this! Yeah, that probably won’t happen but I’ll listen to all of these bands that weekend and stare at a picture of the gorge and pretend that I’m there. That’s kind of like being there, right?

Tickets go on sale this Saturday, February 20th with 3 day passes at $170 and individual days for $70. There is onsite camping as well.
