In case you had avoided the Internet the last couple of days, just to let you know – the Sasquatch Lineup(s) has been released. Yes, there are two festivals this year – one on the normal Memorial Day weekend, and a second festival over 4th of July weekend. John Roderick hosted the lineup launch party on Monday at the Neptune, and to say that it was a big announcement is an understatement.

The first lineup is stacked with huge acts like Outkast, Queens of the Stone Age, Die Antwoord, Panda Bear, The National, Mogwai (I’m assuming they’re playing because last year they got stuck in Scotland and had to cancel at the last minute). Some local talent has graced that weekend as well – the Lonely Forest, the Flavr Blue, La Luz, Hobosexual, Fly Moon Royalty, and Damien Jurado.

Weekend two features none other than Soundgarden, New Order, Röyksopp with Robyn, Kraftwerk, Spoon, Frank Ocean, Local Natives, Dr. Dog, Gogol Bordello, Neutral Milk Hotel, and one act that I’m particularly excited to see – Sydney indie band Boy & Bear. And the locals aren’t missing out on this weekend either – Shelby Earl, Chastity Belt, Dude York, Iska Dhaaf, Kithkin, and Pollens will all be there.

Below the photos from the release party, which featured Peter and Derek from the Cave Singers, Sir Sly, St Lucia, and Cold War Kids, are the lineups.
