As always, there will be something for everyone at this year’s festival. From the cringe-inducing old acts (Jane’s Addiction and Tony Bennett), to the sometimes hideous mainstream (Skrillex pushes buttons, Mac Miller smokes weed, Big Sean makes them bootays pop), to the mainstream alternative (M83 promises to be awesome, M. Ward and Passion Pit add intrigue, nobody wants to see Keane), and of course everything beyond. The scope of national acts is indeed impressive, as this lineup at first glance appears to not be overshadowed by Sasquatch as it often is when talking about the best festival the Northwest has to offer. I’ll be there all three days, early favorites include M83, Passion Pit, The Promise Ring, Mudhoney, Fishbone, Ty Segall, THEESatisfaction, and Sound Off! winners Nude.
