via the Seattle PI reader's blog, the press release for Sasquatch 2008:
Sasquatch! Music Festival expands to 3-day monster Memorial Day Weekend at The Gorge May 24, 25, 26, 2008Guess I have to adjust my vacation request. Two more weeks to speculate about the line-up.
Full line-up to be announced February 25th
Seattle, WA- February 11, 2008
Adam Zacks and Live Nation are proud to present this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival. The festival, in its seventh and best year yet, will expand to three days and take place Memorial Day Weekend at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre. Already the official opener to summer for music fans, The Sasquatch! Music Festival is becoming a certified monster of a musical event: this year features another exciting and diverse line-up for the musically adventurous, and ups the ante on an event already hailed for its independent spirit. Set against the landscape of the majestic natural wonder and grandeur of the Gorge along the canyons of the Columbia River in Washington State , the festival offers one of the most unique experiences around. Expect a more detailed announcement on February 25th.
Over the years Sasquatch! Music Festival has evolved from a unique homegrown and laid back fest into a full blown three day extravaganza, complete with camp-outs, canyons, sunsets and three stages, and this year (for the first time) a comedy tent. Past performers have ranged from international favorites like Coldplay, Beastie Boys, Bjork, Beck, The Arcade Fire, NIN, The Pixies, Wilco, and Kanye West to local Pacific Northwest performers like The Shins, The Postal Service, Sleater-Kinney, and many, many more.

Chromeo is apparently at the Commodore Ballroom now. BOO ON THAT.
radiohead's May tour takes them as far as Dallas on May 18. How much of a stretch is for them to be the third Sasquatch headliner? Sasq is carbon-neutral and the Gorge, like all the other venues, is run by Live Nation.
Radiohead at the Gorge? Unbeatable, except maybe Radiohead at Thunderbird Stadium (shorter commute...)

thanks anon and melissa
G: I heard that TBird is pretty much locked up as a tour date... but apparently they're also doing some of the NA dates in July/Aug after the European ones.
How awesome would a three day Sasquatch with REM/Cure/Radiohead headlining be though?
I love how Sasquatch is "carbon neutral" but the only way to get there is drive at least 100+km. 20,000 people all driving...that's a lotta carbon emissions!

I heard a Victoria radio station said the Vancouver date would be July 28 but no mention of a venue so TBird would be great if true.
By 6:16 PM, at
I believe Radiohead is confirmed as NOT doing Sasquatch. So August it is.
But TBird Stadium? Again?? GAG. Can't we try Deer Lake this time around, boys?
