Sasquatch! lineup rumors abound for 2011, but so far some of the most popular guesses include (regional) local faves like Modest Mouse, Ben Gibbard, The Thermals and Decemberists alongside other acts like Pixies, PJ Harvey, Chemical Brothers, Death From Above 1979, Iron and Wine, Arcade Fire, Best Coast/Wavves, and Kanye West. All of these acts also have open spots in their tour schedules during the weekend of Sasquatch!
Fleet Foxes were also rumored, but they're booked solid in Europe during that time. We already know that Foo Fighters will be a Sasquatch! headliner for 2011.
Lucky for us, the Sasquatch! 2011 lineup announcement is due soon, ending all of the rumors with news of this year's headliners, lineup and tickets. The lineup announcement will happen this year at a live performance on Sunday, Feb. 6. It's a Sasquatch! launch party that will take place at Showbox at the Market. The Thermals, Das Racist and Mad Rad, along with comedian Todd Barry as host will all perform at the launch party.
Tickets will go back on sale on Monday, Feb. 14 at 10:00 AM.
So here's the skinny on the 2011 Sasquatch! festival: the dates are May 27 - 30, a.k.a. Memorial Day weekend for 2011. That also means that they've added on a day ... the three day event has now become four epic days! This will also be the 10th anniversary of Sasquatch!.
