Friday, May 25th
The first day of Sasquatch started around 4pm to allow attendees to get themselves to their campsites and get setup. People yelled out as they crested the hill and saw the infamous “Gorge”-ous view behind the Sasquatch Stage. One group even toasted with their beers! Santigold brought her swagger and her stoic dancers, Girl Talk had everyone dancing to thousands of hits (tipping his hat to recently deceased Adam Yauch (MCA) through various Beastie Boys tracks), and Explosions took viewers to their intensely introspective musical space. See below for photos of Metal Chocolates, Poliça, Santigold, Girl Talk, Explosions in the Sky, and Pretty Lights.
