Today we take a bow and bid a fond farewell to Sasquatch! I’ll no
longer be producing the Festival, nor will it happen in 2019.
The Festival started 17 years in the past on a hunch, greenlit on nothing extra
than a reputation and intuition there was area for one thing with a uniquely
Northwest taste, on Memorial Day weekend, at one of the vital
lovely areas on Earth – The Gorge.
17 years is a very long time to do something. The Beatles lasted a mere 8
years, a reality so astonishing it’s tough to consider. While we
didn’t accomplish something as indelible as “Hey Jude”, the Festival
left an enduring mark and proudly represented an impartial spirit.
Sasquatch! will without end stay a tapestry of the individuals who labored
with us, the artists who impressed us, and the various experiences of
the followers who attended it … of friendships made, engagements, hilltop
weddings, everlasting tattoos, as soon as in a lifetime collaborations,
climate occasions each treacherous and sumptuous, no less than one very
public conception, and, in fact, a whole bunch of awe inspiring
performances. My humblest gratitude to all of you.
May the spirit that made Sasquatch! so particular reside on.
Onward to the following journey,
