Mumford & Sons, Vampire Weekend To Headline Sasquatch Festival

Sasquatch Music Festival 2013 Mumford & SonsThis year’s Sasquatch Music Festival will be hosted at the Gorge Ampitheater in Washington State, as always, and this year’s lineup features a couple of big guns. Folk titans Mumford & Sons, who have hit the road hard since releasing their hit second album Babel last year, will be headlining the festival alongside preppy indie rockers Vampire Weekend.

Other bands featured in the lineup include folkies The Lumineers (whose song “Ho Hey” seems to be everywhere now) and Father John Misty, along with British rockers The Arctic Monkeys and American indie rock lifers Built To Spill. Sasquatch also features a comedy stage this year, with notable performers including Mike Birbiglia (Sleepwalk With Me, NPR’s This American Life) and Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks And Recreation).

Sasquatch takes place from May 24th to May 27th in Gorge, Washington. You can purchase tickets here. Below, watch a trailer previewing more artists playing the festival. There are a lot of them:
