Frank Ocean And Chance The Rapper Headline This Year’s Sasquatch! Festival

And many, many more

by daniel barna

One of the year's most eclectic music festivals finally has its headliners. The lineup for this year's Sasquatch! Festival was revealed Monday morning, and boy is it a doozy. We already knew that Frank Ocean was performing, after the enigmatic singer included Sasquatch! in the five live dates he announced last year. Now we know that Chance the Rapper and Twenty One Pilots will join Ocean at the top of the bill.

Chance has become one of this season’s hottest festival commodities, set to headline both Bonnaroo and the Governors Ball, two of the year’s most hotly anticipated events. Ocean will also be making the rounds this summer, as he gets set to perform live for the first time since 2014. The "Nikes" singer will also perform cuts from his latest album Blonde at the Hangout Music Festival in Alabama and the Panorama Festival in New York. 

But despite the sheer volume of festivals set to unfold this summer, Sasquatch! may have just risen to the top of the list. Not only might we get Frank and Chance on stage together (they're old friends), but the artists who’ll set the stage for them make up one of the most diverse groups we've seen in some time. White Lung, MGMT, Bonobo, Kaytranada, Aesop Rock, Mac Miller, Charles Bradley, Car Seat Headrest, The Radio Dept., and Kiiara are all set to perform when Sasquatch! hits the Gorge in Quincy, Washington, this Memorial Day Weekend (May 26 to 28).

Tickets for this year's festival go on sale on Saturday, January 28, at 10am PST. Get them here
