Festivals that happen only once a year are *soooooo* 2012. Yeah, we're talking to you Coachella and Bonaroo.
In 2014, local music fans will party at Sasquatch! Festival twice, Live Nation announced today. For more than a decade, the Gorge Amphitheatre's yearly indie-rock showcase has served as unofficial pre-funk for summer concert season, and it will return to its usual Memorial Day weekend slot next year, from May 23 to 25. What's new for 2014, though, is a second Fourth of July weekend installment that is scheduled for July 4 to 6.
Each installment will have separate lineups, which won't be announced until February. But not knowing who's actually playing won't stop some fans from gambling on early tickets this week. A limited number of three-day passes will go on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 29. Prices are listed at $325 for Memorial Day Weekend, $275 for Fourth of July weekend and $550 for a two-weekend pass.
