This isn’t Coachella or SXSW, this is Sasquatch! Only a month away, Washington’s premiere outdoor music festival starts Friday, May 22 and goes until Monday, May 25. Sasquatch always takes place at the Gorge, which is about a three hour drive from Seattle. When Seattleites do festivals they go all the way. Don’t expect to see any hotels out here; it’s four days of camping rain or shine.
This year’s artists are a mix of all genres, so there should be a little something for everyone. Headliners include Kendrick Lamar, Robert Plant, Modest Mouse, Lana Del Rey, Of Monsters and Men, The Decemberists, and Schoolboy Q to name a few. With 125+ acts it’s hard not to find a few to check out.
With a lot of the bigger music festivals already taken place it’s easy to see what fashion trends people will be going for this year. Think 70s revival fashion with modern twists. Outfits are taken to a new level with suede, fringe, and embroidery paired with ripped denim, band tees, and sheer kimonos.
Camping in the PNW means never knowing what the weather will be like, so festival goers will need to be prepared for just about anything. Clothing will have to be weather proof. Pack shoes you don’t mind getting dirty (we suggest a pair of trusty Docs) and have as many layers as possible (tying a flannel around your waist can save you if the temperature drops).
Even though everyone is going to see a bunch of great artists, we are eagerly awaiting to see what kind of fashion Seattle brings to the festival season.
