Some things are just perfect. If you’re a fan of indie music, then the 2010 lineup for the Sasquatch! Music Festival probably deserves this classification. After all, basically everyone who’s anyone from the genre will be appearing at the pristine Gorge Amphitheatre this Memorial Day Weekend (May 29-31).
For one, joining the previously announced Pavement as the 2010 headliners will be My Morning Jacket and Massive Attack, both of which will likely be making their 2010 summer festival debut at Sasquatch. Other heavyweights confirmed to take part include Ween, Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem, Band of Horses, The National, Public Enemy, Kid Cudi, and Passion Pit.
But wait… there’s more! Broken Social Scene, She & Him, The New Pornographers, The Hold Steady, Dirty Projectors, Drive-By Truckers, Minus the Bear, The Mountain Goats, Caribou, The xx, OK Go, The Long Winters, Quasi, and Camera Obscura will all also be taking part, as will Deadmau5, Simian Mobile Disco, No Age, The Temper Trap, Miike Snow, Why?, YACHT, and Neon Indian.
Still not done: You can also expect to see Fruit Bats, Midlake, Brother Ali, City & Colour, Portuga. The Man, Mayer Hawthorne, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Wale, Japandroids, Freelance Whales, Laura Marling, Cymbals Eat Guitars, The Low Anthem, The Very Best, Mumford & Sons, The Tallest Man on Earth, tUnE-YarDs, Fool’s Gold, DJ Z-Trip, Local Natives, The Middle East, Avi Buffalo, A-Trak, and Yes Giantess, as well as comedians like The Office’s Craig Robinson and The Daily Show’s Rob Riggle. Everyone who’s anyone? Duh.
