Washington's Sasquatch! Festival has named the dates for its 2009 affair, set to take place on it's traditional dates of Memorial Day weekend.
The dates will be May 23-25, and will take place in the lush, green Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington. A full lineup announcement will be unleashed on February 17th.
This year's Sasquatch! includes an expanded Comedy & Dance Tent, with comedy by day, and electronic and dance music by night.
A Sasquatch! Festival blog is listing Kings of Leon, The Avett Brothers, Peter, Bjorn and John, and Sun Kil Moon as all being confirmed acts for 2009. Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, John Vanderslice, Monotonix, Passion Pit, The Decemberists, and Tobacco are all on the rumored list. This is total speculation at this point, but what's pre-festival hysteria without guessing at who's going to be there?
